Lenses / Re: 11-24 is here, with images of it compared to Nikon 14-24
« on: February 09, 2015, 04:22:55 PM »
There was a link to samples posted by mackguyver

Thank you for the info and in comparison to a B+W, etc. $72 isn't bad if it's high quality.

Also, full-res sample photos shot on a 5DIII with full EXIF have been posted - you'll need to click on the image and then right-click and save to see them full-res:

It looks like CA is all but non-existent (WOW!), distortion is extremely low (WOW x 2!), there is almost no coma (Astrophotographers who can deal with f/4, rejoice!), but the extreme corners do soften a bit (as the MTF curves would suggest).

did anyone notice the exif on the picture looking up at some buildings.  The exif on that picture says the lens is a 12-24 f4.6 ...

EOS Bodies / Re: New 1DX firmware info by Fred Miranda site member

Alright you mugs, remember you read it here first!

Hmm, they didn't mention firmware 1.3.3 for the 5D3 is available from the same place. ;)
(Actually, a forum member there beat me and posted about the 5D3 in a post to the thread)

For the 5D3:

Changes Firmware Version 1.3.3 incorporates the following improvement and fix. 1. Improves the AF controllability when shooting in Live View mode with a wide-angle lens (fixed focal length or zoom). 2. Corrects some incorrect indications on the "English" and "Russian" menu screens. Firmware Version 1.3.3 is for cameras with Firmware Version 1.2.3 or earlier. If your camera's firmware is already Version 1.3.3, it is not necessary to update the firmware. When updating the firmware of your camera, please first review the instructions thoroughly before downloading. Note: Once the EOS 5D Mark III camera is updated to Version 1.3.3, it cannot be restored to a previous firmware version (Version 1.0.7 through 1.2.3).

On this site, it indicates the release date as 1/29/15  which is *tomorrow*, probably we will see it in other places once it is "released"

Technical Support / Re: How to remove a filter that is bent.

I agree it needs to be send in. After the holidays.

Thanks again. I'll post again to let you all know how it turns out.


Since it will be going in to be checked out, let the lens repair folks remove it, they will have tools, experience with this sort of thing, etc.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Card images failed transfer error on 5d3

You are in the wrong menu.  To "transfer" images from CF to SD you need to use the option "Image Copy" (under PLAY2- [the blue menu])
Image Transfer is for transfering images to a PC.

Technical Support / Re: Lens hood no longer sung

My 24-105 also has a hood that is not snug, I applied a small piece of black masking tape to the lens and it snugged up enough to stop rattling around.
It fixed the problem
It isn't terribly obvious
It is completely reversible.

Serious question:  Have you had any bad experiences taking pictures of people working?  I imagine that some workers might object.

I shot these from our porch (front porch and back porch) not much they could say... struck up a conversation with the linesman in the yellow shirt, traded e-mail and I sent him a couple pics.
