Lenses / ND or not 2B
« on: November 08, 2012, 06:56:18 AM »
So I've decided to keep my fujifilm x100 which i adore and buy 6d with a couple of primes.
there is a question that has been bugging me though

in my x100 i have built-in 3-stop ND filter. that comes might handy when i want to take f/2 photos in bright day light or even above average light. although the x100 goes up to 1/4000 i still found myself using it a lot.

I can only imagine whats going to happen on a 6d with 1/2000 and a f/1.4 lens

So what do you usually do in these cases when you just dont want to use smaller aperture (the reason you bought the lens in the first place) in bright day light.

do you carry a 3-stop nd filter for every fast lens and keep taking it off and on?
do you just leave it on until nightfalls?
keep a cpl on all the time?

Lenses / 35mm lenses vs 24-70

Hi there,

First post for me here (although for years I've been checking it out every day)
I stopped using my 450d and ef-s lenses when I got my fujifilm x100 (which is awesome btw)
I'm mostly into street photography and the x100 gave me a great light-weight solution for my long trips abroad

However, now I want to go back to canon to experiment with some tele lenses/macro etc.
and since I cant imagine going back to my 450d I want to wait and buy the 6D (also light and good for street photography)

I love the x100's 35 equiv lens - I like shooting 90% of the time in 35mm.
So... im thinking of buying either a 35mm prime (either the new 35 f/2 IS or the new 35 1.4 sigma)
I heard not so great things about the bulky 35L and with 4 stops IS the new 35 f/2 the 35L has little to offer (or am i wrong)
the second option is to make the extra strach thinking longterm (family portraits/all purpose etc) and getting the 24-70 f/2.8 mkII

So I guess my question is as follows:
do you suppose that at 35mm the non L primes will outpreform the zoom
on one hand primes have usually better IQ however these are not L lenses and the new 24-70 f/2.8 suppose to be super-sharp.

any thoughts?

BTW- since I'm new you can see some of my pics at:
