But you did not just compare a crappy 8MP smartphone cam with APS-C or BEHOLD even full frame sensors?

102. People approaching me with my 5D Mark III / 70-200 2.8L IS II: "Whoa how much does such a camera cost, 1000€?"

103. "Tamron sucks. Generally. Everything S___. Canon L is the best."

92. "My 100$ PnS got more megapixel than your big expensive camera"
93. People who don't know how to use any other mode than automatic, regardless if Rebel or 5D.

With that said about my own feelings of photographic inadequacy I then come across this: http://www.yourclassicmoments.co.uk/

This is... fcuk I can't even find any words, this is practically ONLY point and shoot without any feel for the moment, how people should look on pictures or technical settings of the camera which honestly doesn't even look like its more than a 1000D with kit lens. And that horror for prices like these. No wonder there is no more reference, this is just shameful. Just sayin'.


At least the images are different... god awful, but different.

There's a whole lot more on the facebook page, I wonder where he or she got "learned" how to do colorkeys, they make no sense at all, i mean the people black and white and the surroundings in color? It's a shame for the whole professional level of photography.

And here are your comparisons:


You compare lens sharpness with blurry high ISO pictures?

I only use Lowepro, got a Flipside 400 for my 5D3/14mm/35mm/70-200mm/135mm + 2 flash + batteries, chargers and small stuff, and lowepro toploader 50 (for the 5d3 with any lens but the 70-200) and a toploader 55 (for the 5d3 with 70-200), and I am very satisfied with these.

Give 50L a chance.

You did not just say the 50L is anywhere near the Sigma. The 50L, though performing perfectly from f/2 upwards, is one of the worst lenses price/performance-wise, it's just really, really soft from below 2.0, even the old 50 1.4 performs better in that range. And this is not just based on test charts, I owned it myself for quite some weeks before I switched to the razor sharp Sigma 35 1.4. There is quite a quality scatter but not even close as worse as it was with their old 50 1.4 and if you get a decent copy - like i did - it's just a treat to work with. Give it some time, get to your local lens dealer, and pick a lens by hand. You won't regret.

Lenses / Re: If you could only have three lenses...

I use to think:
1. 16-35 f2.8 II
2. 24-70 f2.8 II
3. 70-200 f2.8 IS II

I'm more of a prime guy but when I had to go with three this would be the clear decision.

Lenses / Re: 50mm.. Upgrade or not?

After a few hours of internet research I have decided to get the Sigma 35 f1.4 DG HSM :O

Exactly what I did after I waited months for a new 50 1.4 from Canon. I first bought the 50 1.2L and it was a nice lens, heavy, weather sealed, just felt right, but the shots weren't satisfying below 2.0. The old 50 1.4 which I owned before won't come back into my bag cause its just such an old piece of plastic and also not the greatest performance at 1.4, at least not even close to what the new Sigma 35mm 1.4 can produce. So, I sold the 50L again and bought the Sigma 35 1.4 and if you get a decent copy with no focus problems then this is what should be the standard for 1.4! Incredibly sharp.

Lenses / Re: Disappointed with 50 f/1.2 sharpness @ f/1.2

The 50L in my opinion is way too expensive for its performance, you don't buy a 1.2 lens to not shoot at 1.2 because it's not really sharp. Don't misunderstand me, I had it for some weeks and it got me some good shots but they all were just not comparable to the sharpness of a Sigma 35mm 1.4 or a Canon 135mm 2.0.

That and the exorbitant age of the current 50 1.4 is why everyone screams for a new 50 1.4.

That head shot was also processed in DxO which alters sharpness and bokeh.

It's just the usage that makes the difference. When used for portrait, the 135 just feels more "right" because its faster. 100 is more like a universal workhorse.
