Nice shots Tammy ;D. It's always good to see real-world examples rather than arbitrary tests. Is that last one of ISO 25,600, F4, 1/8000s just a typo or was it really quite bright and you were having a play around with the ISOs?

Thank you, both :)

The last black and white shot was in fact shot at 1/8000s.. at night! =)

It actually was not that bright, just an average acceptably lit pizzeria. But it's amazing what shutter speeds you can get at ISO 25,600 and fast glass! The light from the neon signs also affected metering. I shot it at ISO 25,600 strictly for creative purposes: to get natural in-camera gritty grain feel/look.. it was the theme for an available light photography school class that night and i was THRILLED to get out and shoot high ISO with my new 5D3 high ISO.. i knew that the noise was very fine and film-like and was looking forward to the photos i would get.. it was amazing to think that i generally HAD to set such a high ISO to get that noise when of course many of my fellow classmates were setting their cameras to max ISO's of 3200 etc or some with earlier Rebels to 1600.. how truly far technology has come in just a few years! we are blessed!

it's a great camera! you'll love it.. i feel it is worth every cent.. it not only enables me to do more of the things that i would like to do but also just makes shooting feel like/even more like a joy!

i love your photography.. it inspires me.. =)

all minimal/virtually no post NR, all horribly compressed by facebook :)

ISO 6400, F4, 1/80s, 24mm

ISO 3200, F2.8, 1/30s, 24mm

ISO 3200, F1.4, 1/30s, 24mm

ISO 4000, F5.6, 1/60s, 24mm

ISO 25,600, F4, 1/8000s, :)

The one I decided to keep in the end is amazing 70mm wide open center frame and pretty good at wide edges and corners (I think, it's hard to tell which is the way the DOF should be placed) although lower left corner might be a touch soft. Maybe 3 more copies and I'd get something perfect in every last regard?? As it is though, it's good enough to dump my 24 1.4 II over and it has the sharpest 70mm f/2.8 center frame I've seen from any lens, so not so bad (70mm far edges are weaker than my 70-300L on this and all the copies looked at though).

I also have the 24L II and tested it on a heavily detailed brick wall on a tripod with LV manual focus, contrast AF etc and my first copy of the 24-70L II is excellent, noticeably outresolving my 24L II from center to the edges at F2.8, F4.. i like the color more and the micro contrast is amazing! i love my 24L II but i'm ok with putting it up on craigslist.. i would also say the center to mid-frame at 70mm is the sharpest i've seen..

i shot a few textured walls on a tripod with manual focus through live view, same ISO etc, and my 24-70L II is sharper than my 24L II in the center and the edges at F2.8 and even F4! Just like to confirm your experience as well.

Great capture! I love your photography! Thanks for sharing.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D3 vs. Nikon D600

some of you fan boys are  incredible. Canon can not handle f-8, Nikon can.

Nikon can not handle F/4 and faster lenses, Canon can.

Canon 5D3 41 cross type F4 and faster sensitive AF points (5 dual cross type), Nikon D800 0.

From what I read it is an autofocus design choice a manufacturer has to make. Focus on designing for performance at large apertures or small ones. Apparently, at this point in tech, you can't have excellence at both. The latest AF systems show a particular differing design, that is all.

If you shoot large aperture portraiture, etc, the Canon AF design of the 5D3 and 1DX etc are better suited. If you shoot birds/wildlife, Nikon's latest design is beneficial.

Rented one myself this weekend for use on the 5diii.  First few hours I can say I'm impressed. Nothing but family shots planned this weekend, which I would generally just stick to something light like a 50 1.8 or 35 f2, so far I have to say I like it. I've never been a fan of any of the upgrades from the nifty 50 as neither then 1.4 or 1.2L blow me away. Additionally i never thought I'd get enough use out of a 35 L, or 24 L so as a replacement to a couple of serious L primes it may in fact be cost reasonable. I can say the bokeh is very creamy at 2.8, and at least my current copy seems tack sharp. My computer is stuck at the apple store for repairs so it maybe be a few days before I can see full sized shots, but I can honestly say I'm seriously debating this lens as a my next purchase.

If you have any, you should shoot on an SD card and stick it into an HDTV to view!

Lenses / Re: what filter for my first "L" Lens
« on: September 28, 2012, 11:25:55 PM »

This is a really great comprehensive filter test/read I found today that I thought i'd share. I was trying to find comparisons of the B+W MRC vs the Hoya Pro1, both of which I use. Debating with myself whether to get one or not for my 24-70 II being shipped.

For UV filters/UV reduction purposes, the Hoyas blew away the B+W's, which surprisingly didn't do very well at UV reduction but did spectacular in light transmission and flare control etc.
