Also, the 40mm f2.8 is the new 50mm f1.8 - the first prime
How does the 1DX do it?
In the pdf http://cpn.canon-europe.com/files/education/technical/eos_1d_x_explained/AF%20guide_EOS-1DX_V2_eng.pdf you can find on page 28 a possible solution for assigning EC to a button.
Be patient: it will take some time to open this pdf.
They assign EC to the set button. Afterwards you can change easily the EC by pushing SET and turning the mail dial.
I've no doubt that the D800 and D810 are good for landscape work - having all those extra megapixels, and I don't think anyone here disputes that Nikon is better at base ISO (I only know this from reading this forum). They may well be the best full frame cameras for this purpose, I don't know (I don't do much landscape work).Exactly!
But to claim Canon is bad at ISO 100 is hyperbole. And to claim the 5D3 is 'painterly' at ISO 800 (or just over) is... perplexing. It's a subjective term of course. But the raw files look good much higher than that - depending on what and how you shoot. I find bird photos can look okay up to ISO 6400-8000 - using the technique of slightly overexposing and then reducing the brightness later (to reduce shadow noise) - and I'm very happy with results at ISO 3200.
That's the reason why I like the 40mm STM. It's just f2.8 which is sad for separating objects, but those f2.8 are just awesome and useable. A good lense is a lense you're willing to carry with you.
