    Re: 50mm f/1.4 vs f/1.2 L

    Keeth you have some valid points. My intention is not to totally deiscredit the glass. If you have that specialty need, much like Bryan posted in his review its a respectable choice. I dont have the...

    Re: 50mm f/1.4 vs f/1.2 L

    I stand corrected it is 5 blades.


    Yes you can see the difference in extremely cropped areas, but now look at the intended full image and honestly can you spot the difference? Most of the time...

    Re: Skin tones on a hazy day: phantom like!

    I have seem this time and again. My bet is on underexposing the image and losing color and detail in an attempt to recover in post procees. Are the images loosing "POP" too appearing with a grayish...

    ND filters really are not a good choice for this. They are most suited to add additional stops to allow for longer exposures in bright suns for an effect like flowing water and by definition wont...
  7. Re: Suggestions for a wide zoom Wedding/Event lens?

    As rule if thumb I advise against buying EFs glass for the simple fact that they can only be used on 1.6 crop APS-C bodies. If you use more than one body and the other is an APS-H 1.3 crop sports...

    Re: 50mm f/1.4 vs f/1.2 L

    The bokeh is different but only noticeable wide open and under certain conditions like the lights, reflections of lights or round objects. Now there is a world of difference when comparing to the 6...

    Re: 50mm f/1.4 vs f/1.2 L

    My advice is to stick with the 50 1.4. I tried the 50 1.2 and didnt care for it at all. The IQ was better than the 50 1.4 by just a tad up to f2 but after that the 50 1.4 was sharper and past 2.8...

    Re: Just for fun; Lets spend 5K

    Go for the glass, the 7D will do for now and if you really want a MKIV just wait a bit when the price comes down. I own the MKIV and its a very nice body.


    The glass retains its used value very...

  12. Re: 135L - I can't get a sharp shot no matter what :(

    Im sure if anyone cant figure it out or their interest it tweaked and my script too lazy they will ask as you have. ;o)
  13. Re: 135L - I can't get a sharp shot no matter what :(

    Pardon my assuptions. When I refer to a MKIII its a Canon EOS 1D Mark III which I currently use as a second shooting sports. I shot that photo about a week before picking up the 1d MKIV. I have a...
  14. Re: FS: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM / Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM w/filter and ET-67 Hood (Purchased Refurbished)

    Glad to see you got them sold. That damage to the 24-70 cab most likley be fixed by Canon for less than $100. I just had the entire barrel and mount replaced on a 35 1.4L and with my CPS discount it...
  15. Re: 135L - I can't get a sharp shot no matter what :(

    Thats more like it!


    Maybe you should dump the coffee and go straight for a double espresso! [:P]





    Mastering shallow DOF can be a real challange.
  16. Re: 135L - I can't get a sharp shot no matter what :(

    Desise the 135L is among the sharpest lenses canon makes. Ive seen out of calibration copies but never an outright bad copy. Hopefully everythng will come back nicely calibrated for you. One other...

    Re: Autofocus versus manual focus

    Enhanced screens do make manual focusing easier. Live View even more so.


    From your explantion though I would put my money on either the lens or the body being out of calibration or camera shake....

    Re: Is This A Good Price For the 1Ds MKII?

    All of the above!


    By choice the only zooms I own are fixed aperture and the only one I use for sports is the 70-200 2.8L IS which is what the second shot was taken with along with a 1.4TC. The...
  19. Re: Are all CANON "sensors" created equal in terms of image quality??

    My experience with the 1DsII was a very awsome camera. The pixel density on that sensor hit the sweet spot and I have yet to see it surpassed at low ISO settings.


    The 1DsIII outperforms the...

    Re: Is This A Good Price For the 1Ds MKII?

    I may give that a go just to see how it performs. The only time I have found I have needed higher ISO is shooting night games under the lights or indoors and actually found the MKIV to be useable in...

    Re: Canon Drop-in Filters

    The 48mm wont work in the 52 mm frame. It wont be vignetting but a lens blockage.


    One missed off the list is the 200 1.8L

    Re: Is This A Good Price For the 1Ds MKII?

    I always shoot full manual. There is no difference from shooting M and using auto ISO or shooting P or Tv or Av. Choosing the correct ISO is the same as choosing one of the other two. The cameras...
