  • I have the Sigma 50 1.4 and the 85 1.8 both very fast focusing. I use the 50 more for dance stuff. I also have to 70-200 f4IS which I don't use often but have found to be awesome when I do. If ok ...
  • I've shot a couple tae-twon-do gradings - I used my 24-105 iso 3200 (no flash) and didn't have problems. I used my 50 1.4 as well it was great too. My guess is the 24-105 will be your best bet. ...
  • Replied in 5D ii live view
    Use your 5D live view - yes it's slow but I assume you are not talking action portraits and the live view takes full advantage of all the light being sucked in by the 1.2. It's also more accurate ...
  • Created discussions LED spot lights
    I have only seen these recently but I am seeing them everywhere. I have no problem with the coloured ones but when they mix red green and blue to make a white spotty it confuses my camera (5DII). Q ...
  • I often only use my 50mm (FF) which is roughly equivalent. With stitching wide angle isn't as essential as it use to be. You only need need it for the exaggerated perspective if that is what you ...
  • I'd consider primes like the sigma 30 or 35 1.4 and the 50 1.4 if you want the separation and yes seriously consider the 6D
  • 70 at 2.8 you'll be fine
  • Replied in Canon 1.8
    Get the Canon 1.8 it's great little lens
  • Commented on Nikon Df preview

    No sure why the concept of using the most of the image circle is so repellent. I suppose I don't like the 4:3 aspect ratio which also makes more use of the image circle so I sort of understand...

  • If sigma release their stella 50, 35 and 85 to the mount suddenly it had a pretty strong lens line up. Not as complete as microfour thirds in many areas but for a lot of people it would cover all ...
  • Commented on Nikon Df preview

    Yeah but I think his point is that a image circle is a circle so a square will make the most use of it... well a circular sensor would but a square would be the next best thing. And as he said you...

  • Commented on Nikon Df preview

    you would have a 36x36mm sensor

  • Commented on Nikon Df preview

    It would make the most of the image circle and is a logical improvement when they run out of other things to improve. At this stage it might make more sense with crop cameras and point and shoots...

  • Replied in Lenses
    They are both great cameras - I'd look at the lenses you would buy and see how that factors in to your decision. I went for the 5DII because canon had more good and fairly priced full framed lenses. ...
  • It would be nice and I can't see them not doing it in the 6D but I really want to see the phase detection in live view in a full frame. Including a tilt screen would be great too although less ...
  • Wow that's a good point, I was a little dismissive of the new 7s as it will be an age before they have the lenses but I hadn't thought about Sigma's new range add a decent home grown zoom and ...
  • Replied in Go For It!
    A friend of my shoots with Nikon and I must admit I had noticed something being up with how it rendered skin. It looked a little flat or edited to me (which it wasn't). I wouldn't say it looked ...
  • Replied in Agreed
    agreed I can't stand the 'you are doing it wrong' because that's not how I do it opinions
  • I don't think the response time of the mirrorlesses are quite up to what I need yet - I've got a olympus epm2 and the slight lag between pressing the button and taking the shot has meant it isn't ...
  • I quite like having the option of live view as it allows for easy framing without limiting things to my point of view - eg holding the camera up over a crowd. It's also handy for low light as ...
