This is how sharp they should be:

http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=355&Camera=453&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=355&CameraComp=453&SampleComp=0&FLIComp=5&APIComp=0

So, quite sharp in the center and above average around. The 24-105 is not one of their best lenses, but still a nice workhorse considering range, IS and above all the price.

Lenses / Re: Where's my 50mm f/1.8 IS?
« on: March 03, 2013, 03:36:58 AM »
There is no new info except that it has to arrive some time this year, we got new 24, 28, 35 and 40 whereas the first three are stabilized so a new 50 would be the next logical step. I still would not bet on a 1.4 IS, more like 2.0 like it was with the 35 but hey, one can only hope.

I am also waiting since they announced it for the first time. Regarding the price tag on the 35 2.0 IS, I fear a 50 1.4 IS would scratch a four digit number if not even pass it.

Lenses / Re: Samyang 14mm T3.1 for still photography?

No reason not to use it for stills, its even possible thet the distance scale on the lens might mean something, it certainly is totally inaccurate on the non cine version.

The later versions were fixed, I got that lens from the german distributor Walimex in December 2012 and it my scale was perfectly correct.

Lenses / Re: 17-40mm advice please!
« on: March 01, 2013, 11:11:24 AM »
The 17-40 just like the 24-105 suffers from somewhat very split opinions in the world of camera enthusiasts. On one hand you read about both that they are very good lenses that deliver good results (on a scale where "very good" would be 70-200 4L or 100mm 2.8L and "excellent" would be 135L or 24-70L II), on the other hand people rage about it not being L worthy for their lack of quality. Truth is there is a wide variety of quality throughout the lenses of the same type - there are 17-40 that are just a bit better than others.

I never had a really wide lens until some months ago when I got a Samyang 14mm and was very happy with it and also with the focal length - ultra wide angle just rocks if done right. I loved it so much I wanted to get an automatic and if possible weather sealed lens. After looking around the possibilities I ended up with either 17-40 or 16-35. As the 16-35 was a bit out of my limit I decided to get a 17-40 first, maybe I will upgrade later because of better image quality and one additional stop, but I must say I like it for now. Of course there are some distortions in the corners, well it's quite some very wide angle so I can live with that. Combined with a post processing correction program like DxO optics I am very satisfied with the results it delivers. Plus it's weather sealed if you apply a filter. I must say for its wider angle it's more a walkaround lens for me than my Tamron 24-70, it's lighter and faster and when going on a hike or something I just like the extra milimeters in the lower range.

So to conclude I say get a good 17-40 when you can. Upgrade is always a possibility these days.

All of the above of course only applies if you plan to change to full frame soon. Otherwise there are better choices for crop bodys.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: sigma 85 1.4 focus problem
« on: February 27, 2013, 01:37:39 AM »
Sigma's 50 and 85 1.4 do for some reason not cope well with the full frame cameras. I had a 50 once and its focus was completely off, and even differently when focusing in near or far distance so you couldn't fix it by manual alignment via the camera menu. Sigma can certainly adjust that for you, but you might need to send in your body as well so they can adjust the lens to your body specifically.

Two things - first, I don't think that the 100L has more weather sealing than the 135L

Well then think again, the 100L is dust and water isolated while the 135L is not. So I would rather let it come down to it! It's clearly stated in the specsheets on Canon's official german website, strangely not on their english one, but just go ahead and google 100mm weather isolated and 135mm weather isolated.

Btw you can check your lens for weather sealing if you just look at the mount of it, when it has that small rubber ring around the mount it's isolated. I just compared my 135 and 100 and guess what I found...  ;D

I mainly use the 135L now for portrait work but when it's a cold and wet weather like today, I pull out that weather isolated 100L and are also satisfied  ;D

Excellent shots with the mk III.  Must be cold in the snowy winter.  Is it take her coat off for 3 minutes, grab some shots, then put the coat back on and heat up in the car?  Surely the model can only take so much.

Yup it works somehow like that. Actually it wasn't even That cold that day. Shot again today in the snow and fcuk it, THAT was cold. See results later.  ::)
