Lenses / Re: Affected with GAS, Gear Acquisition Syndrome
« on: March 01, 2014, 11:44:45 AM »
I have a similar affliction where I try to keep the gear to an absolute minimum, but with each piece of gear being the absolute best possible in its respective niche.  It's really quite horrible.  I'm now considering a full-frame just to get the desired focal length range out of a particular lens.  Very messed up.

Lenses / Is 35mm on Crop Wide Enough for Landscape (in many/most cases)?
« on: February 24, 2014, 07:18:04 PM »
Would you say that 35mm on a crop will work most of the time for landscape/sunset/etc.?  Might not be able to get the foreground subject/nice background effect, but otherwise... (in many cases)?
Thanks.

Lenses / Re: Good Non-Sports Mix - 10-22 + 35 2.0 IS?

I think I'm there.  Thanks.
Would this filter work (even at 10mm)?:

Lenses / Good Non-Sports Mix - 10-22 + 35 2.0 IS?
« on: February 17, 2014, 05:04:54 PM »
     This should conclude my novice-like posts.  I use the 100 2.0 and 200 2.8 (on my 70D) for sports and can't say enough about that combo (especially for indoors and might eventually get some sort of telephoto zoom for outdoors). 
     My 35 2.0 IS does most everything else and does it well, but I might like to broaden my horizons with something wider for landscapes.  Would you say that the 10-22 would nicely complement a 35 (on a crop of course)?  Also considering the 24 2.8 IS and am also considering nothing.
     Thanks again for all of the shared knowledge and experience.

EOS Bodies / Re: What's Next from Canon?
« on: February 13, 2014, 10:18:14 PM »
I think it's more exciting to take better pictures on old inferior gear, but I'm in for a 16-50 that's nice, priced not-too-badly and moderately compact (and f4 is a reasonable compromise).

16-50 f/4 IS
Is there a 16-50 inbound?  That could be what I'm looking for.

PowerShot / Re: More Images of the PowerShot G1 X Mark II

Could this be the ultimate no-fuss travel camera? 

24
Canon 100 2.0 (probably at 2.5 and 1/640 or so) and I think it was ISO 3200.  It was taken through a net if that matters.

fixed lens, viewfinder, no articulating screen, minimal features, RAW
Where do I pre-order?

Would it be wrong to replace my 35 2.0 IS with a 24 2.8 IS and 50 1.4?

No, it wouldn't be wrong.  But you might just end up with the 24 f/2.8 IS, 35 f/2 IS AND 50 f/1.4 anyway.   ::)
So you're saying 24 for landscapes (I never really used the wide end of my 17-55), 35 for street, etc. and 50 for portraits?  The 15-85 is a nice thought, but I do have a weakness for primes.  They make me feel alive.

But you just expertly answered my question with a 15-85.  My gratitude.

Lenses / Is There a Definitive "Best" Landscape Lens for Crop?

     I was thinking of a full-frame lens for possible future compatability, but I don't have a full-frame camera now so maybe not.  My almost everything lens is a 35 2.0 IS which is pretty perfect most of the time on my 70D (and a 100 and 200 prime for sports).  For the ultimate landscape lens I was thinking of just keeping that and making it work despite an occasional limitation or maybe complementing it with a Canon 10-22 or 15-85. 
     Thanks for any thoughts.

Software & Accessories / Re: Photomatix or Nik HDR Efex Pro 2 or ?
« on: January 14, 2014, 07:02:13 PM »
Wow.  Thanks.  Looks like going from Merge to 32-bit to Essentials to Pro 5 adds features as you move up.  Might go wtih Merge to 32-bit and then, I guess, you would just process the HDR image in Lightroom vs. in the Pro 5 "develop" module.  Do you find that you prefer to develop in Photomatix (like with Pro 5) or do you often get the desired result in Lightroom?
