I finally posted my 50mm f1.4 on CL yesterday around 3:30PM and the lens got sold by 6PM same day for $290 cash.
When I opened my camera bag this morning, I see an empty spot in my bag - where the 50mm sits when not in use.
My feeling right now = to
Thats a low price. They go for $350 around here. No wonder you sold it so quickly.
I've been thinkinng of selling mine, I've had it boxed up for the last 4 months, but have not been able to part with it. I might sell it if I buy a 24-70 MK II. I also have the 50mm f/1.8 MK I with metal mount. I just finished doing a AFMA with it (-11). I want to do a comparison of images before I decide which to keep.
To me...the 24-70 II is a "SUPER" lens. This will be my most use lens for indoor.
The copy I have right now is sharp, even before AFMA. I decided to run through FoCal, the results are -5 @ 24mm and +1 @ 70mm. Regardless AFMA or not, I know the copy I have is a keeper.
I'll keep this lens until Canon offers 24-105 f2.8 IS
Perhaps this is a conversation for a different or new thread, but in regards to FoCal - Which version do you use?
I haven't really done anything regarding AFMA, but have read good things about it. I'm considering buying FoCal, but don't have a lot of money to throw around for software. Is there a huge difference (yes, I've read the version diff chart) between the three versions offered? Could I get away with just standard? Or is plus or even pro recommended?
Thanks in advance for any replies!
I bought the Pro version and currently using "AF Consistency". So far, I like it. For window version, 5D III and 1D X are not fully auto yet. You can still run the test. The software will promt you to change the AFMA values(-20, -15, -10, -5 etc...) in your camera manually. It's quite easy.
Here are the test results on my 24-70 II - keep in mind, higher is better in this test.
