lindsay adler uses medicore sigma lenses.
todays lenses are normaly not a problem for fashion shootings.
How many times must I mention that it cannot be done in post without deforming the corners (you know those corners where models might be - yes, deformed shoes, hands, and elbows are not my cup of tea). Many presume that model is only to be put in the middle of the image, not touching the edges anywhere. Not the case with me.
you must be an extrem demanding professionell... can we see your portfolio?
post some un-edited model photos to show us the problem
yeah i am too very curious to see what he is complaining about.
All I can post is a test shoot, but okay... What I am complaining about is the amount of work I need to do yearly just to correct the lens distortion. And, sure, I can fix it here and there, but all the time... I don't think so. These tests show exactly how much distortion affect's the image, and I know they're not the prettiest images, I didn't choose them for the model(s?), but for the vertical lines.http://www.sendspace.com/file/33s9ndI'm asking here is the 100L better than 100 non l enough to be my go-to lens, without me being sorry for not getting the non l version and a longer lens(70-200 or 200mm L)?
I know that some people don't care about distortion, an that some people shoot wide open, and that many don't care about macro, but I'm asking you for help in my situation.
I'd rather charge my credit card 10000 bucks and go for MF, being that it'll take me a couple of months to repay it, then spend 2500 cash on a 35mm. That's why I'm so skeptical about spending money on 35mm, I don't want it to end up being money sitting on a shelf. I only buy what I need, isn't that logical?
At this time, I feel I'm missing basic things on 35mm, so rather than spending ever more money and have two kits that I'm not satisfied with, I'd rather invest in the necessary lenses for 35, as I will need that 35 when I go MF (they're not excluding each other).
