Action portrait of Kali playing 'stick'. 1DX + 600 II.
That is such a good shot !
Now even I will admit you couldn't have done that on a 6D

Hi Surapon, the numbers will be marking a scale of the polarisation axis, so just a reference to where you have it set.
Thank you, Sir, Dear Friend Sporgon.
But How can I set that number according to the sun's location ?. It must to have an easy way, Like HOYA's White mark.( ??)
Thanks again, Sir.
I do not know why so many people hate this lens... I love it! I don't care what Sigma or what ever present, that 1.2L Glas is so damn lovely! <3
Shot on a 5D Lr + Ps for Skin. (all at 1.2, except the last one at 1.4)
The problem with "examples" like that is they are post process driven, I could give an image shot taken with any 50mm lens at any aperture (at the same shoot) to a decent post processor and get them to look very similar.
Looks like I’ve made my decision: It’s going to be the Canon 6D kit with the 24-70 f/4 L lens, just a matter of waiting on a good deal (Canon Cash-back, a good shop discount or both).
The 24-70 f/4 should be able to produce the results I’m after, but I’ll put aside the money I save so I can always “upgrade” to some prime lenses when needed (with or without selling off the 24-70 f/4).
Maybe in the long term save enough to get some Zeiss glass, but meanwhile the FF upgrade should keep me satisfied.
I remember reading somewhere that the rings could be due to the grinding/polishing process of the aspherical elements. According to the TDP link, it looks like the Canon 35 f/2 IS is remarkable in the smoothness of the OOF region. It might be worth bringing the Otus and S35 to a camera store and comparing it with the 35 f/2 IS. If the 35 f/2 IS performs notably better than the other two on the same subject then you'd have your answer.
One day after making the previous post, the camera store called and said my X-T1 had arrived. I've been playing with it for eight days now (two of which were in pouring rain), using my old Asahi Takumar lenses as my only lenses, i.e. MF all the way. My assessment, seeing that this is a forum dedicated to Canon gear, and you may freely quote me, is simply: "Goodbye Canon."
I've never heard of anyone cleaning the AF sensor, dust on it does not show in the images, and is very unlikely to affect exposure, so the risk versus improvement ratio is pretty high. Same for the sub mirror.
QuoteA few have mentioned the 28/1.8. This may not be suitable for your needs; it is very much an 'art' lens ( pinching Sigmas title) and although razor sharp in the centre it really falls off mid frame. Even stopped down to f8 it can't match say the 24-105 mid frame. However if you want to shoot wide angle shallow depth of field, dreamy type shots it is excellent.
While I do agree with you, in my experience, the lack of corner sharpness is much less noticeable when using the 28mm f1.8 with a APS-C sensor.
I tried some panning shots today. Gear used was 5D Mark III and the 70-200 II. I shot a reasonable number of images today and these are two of the few shots that I liked. The first shot is at ISO 50, 70mm, f/2.8 at 1/50s. The second shot is at ISO 100, 70mm, f/2.8 and 1/60s. The lens was in IS Mode II.
1) I wasn't able to generate a more streaking background despite shutter speeds which I thought were reasonably low;
2) Dropping the shutter speed lower resulted in an extremely poor hit rate;
Please suggest as to how can I improve my panning technique.
Thanks in advance,
Regards ... J.R.
