Darwin Wigget’s 7D Review… the counterpoint
Pro Photo Home has posted a retort to the claims made by Darwin Wigget and his review of the 7D.

Pro Photo Home seems to be doing tests at f/5.6 & f/16. I think the issue with the 7D was in the f/8 to f/11 area. Most seem to be saying that diffraction sets in with larger apertures on the 7D compared to the XSi.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but check it out.

Old News, I forgot to post it
Here is Lee’s solution to filtering (some filters) ultra wide angle lenses.

The bad news? You still can’t use a polarizer. There is a company working on a solution so you can actually polarize these lenses as well.

thanks James

  1. Sure your copy of the lens is defective cause this lens is amazing.

    I used it for a year on a Xsi and now on my 7D. Saying that 12Mp on a APS-C is “too much for it” makes NO SENSE.

    Seriously, this lens is perfect on a 5D Mark II which is 21 Mp and amazing on a 7D which is 18 Mp. I can honestly tell that the 18 Mp revealed me the potential of this lens.

    So make sure your camera and lens are well calibrate and… think twice before claiming a xsi is “too much” for a L lens…

  2. For another opinion on the 7D check out http://www.juzaphoto.com.
    Quote: “I bought a Canon 7D for myself. It will be my new main camera body, and I’ll keep the 1DsIII as second body…in the next days I’m going to explain why and to post the first part of the review!”
    That review should make for some interesting reading when it comes out.

  3. I have become a fan of shoving Paul Smith Shoes up the rear ends of the soulless spammers who promote them. It feels very good.

  4. Thanks for the heads up.

    I was honestly SHOCKED, to say the least, when I read what Juza wrote.

    Wow. Really wow. Can’t wait to read his upcoming article.
