5Dmk3 in camera lens aberration correction samples
« on: March 23, 2012, 11:34:14 PM »
Just a couple of test shots I just did to see the new to canon in camera lens aberration correction.  Shot wide open in almost darkness (JPEG in camera NR off) with my 50mm 1.2.  The nice thing is that there is the option to enable peripheral illumination (which is what I was turning on and off here) as well as a separate toggle for chromatic aberration (no fringing in this sample, so I left it on in both, but I can tell you it makes a really big difference in the daylight, especially with a 1.2 lens).  I actually really like the vignette in the 50 1.2, I think it adds a lot of lens character and uniqueness but I think its pretty damn cool that I can just "turn it off" if I want a non vignetted f1.2 image.  I also really like that I have independent control over CA and vignette, so I can always leave CA on and turn on and off vignette as I like....

The first shot without the correction looks better IMO

How's the 50mm F/1.2 focussing with the 5D MK3?
I was wondering if it tames some of it's bad focusing behavior?

I really want to get one of these next, but I'm not sure if the 5D MK3 will make things worse or better?

Cheers

So far seems pretty good.  I had to add +6 to the autofocus micro adjustments, but since then it has been pretty spot on, I mean the DOF is razor thin, so I think its pretty great considering that and the fact that even a sleight movement after you lock focus could shift the focus point as well.  Also it lock really fast, even in the dark...

Lets put it this way, i will use my 50 1.2 as much as humanly possible now because the 5d3 is killer with it. The focus locks nicely even at F1.2.

50L's with datecode ux and above have focus shift improvement. Just surprised you needed +6 microfocus adjustment.
