Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Takumars, Anyone?
« on: February 12, 2013, 02:44:06 PM »
When you want to use a Takumar 50mm 1.4 SMC on a full frame, you'll run into the problem with the mirror hitting the back of the lens. You can mod the lens though, wrote a bit about that on my website Going to try the lens out as soon as my M42 adapter arrives.

They should really consider announcing some new EF lenses... especially that damn 50mm IS I crave.

Everything on flickr, portraits on 500px, and most of the pix on my private website.

I am kinda satisfied with anything. Sure, a 1DX would be nice, but that won't be happening anytime soon.

I would really love an affordable ultra wide prime or zoom instead of my manual Samyang, which I am satisfied with by the way, but just to scratch off that manual focussing. Sadly there is no real alternative qualitywise other than the Canon 14mm L II prime itself which is way too expensive. Tamron 14mm, Sigma 12-24mm, Sigma 14mm all are while being affordable far away from reaching the Samyang's image quality.

Definitely that 10-22 for ultra wide purposes and I might throw in a 18-50 Tamron instead of a 17-40 Canon there.

Oh I might add, I feel as an amateur when my portrait work with lots and lots of unpaid hours gets times 1000 less affection than someone's lunch vintage filtered on instagram. I mean, fuck Instagram.

I don't really know. My brother got a Rebel T1i before me, I was somehow always Canon fixated and then got my own Rebel T1i. Had a Nikon to play around a bit, it just did not feel... right... you know ::) so, 5D Mark III it was.

Well my username is not so much a mystery, it's my official photographer name ;) and also real name, obviously. My avatar shows my logo.

I don't exactly consider myself a pro, but I'm not a fan of referring to photography as just my "hobby".

Nowadays I have to talk very much about my photography because nearly all my friends know what I'm doing and I put very much emphasis on the fact that it is only a hobby for me. A damn expensive one, that's right, but I have the feeling people appreciate more what I do when they know I do it not because I have to but because I want to, and that in my spare time. Also grants me the possibility to turn down requests for portrait shoots with people I don't really want to waste time on. I don't want to see it as work, and I don't want to do free portrait shoots of people that are clearly not photogenic.

So, I'm no pro obviously but I would label myself somewhere between very ambitious hobby photographer and semi-pro ;)

It's called a learning curve. Worry when you don't look back and think that you could do a much better job now.

Amen to that, when scrolling through my older shots I am sometimes wowed how I could manage to not see particular things that I'd process the s**t out of nowadays. But I let it stay the way I did them in the first place. It is joyous to have a recognizable progress.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 Pancake
« on: February 10, 2013, 05:03:34 AM »
I bought that lens for when I went skiing some weeks ago just to save some space and I was absolutely not disappointed. Great sharpness, easy to use and dirt cheap. I returned it afterwards though because I got a Tamron 24-70 2.8 which magically covers the focal length of 40mm and I saw no real reason for keeping it besides the size, which I do not need that often, because I carry around my stuffed camera pack anyway.
