Roberto Mettifogo: very good for movie making, solid, precise focusing and follow focus ready, precise markings on the barrel, don't complain about price guys, this is not for the sunday photographers... it is a high end lens for digital cinematography, and most of the user will rent them, the price is good.

awesome in vimeo link these cinema lenses have the higher contrast not unlike zeiss but still that creamy look of canon top notch also see this http://vimeo.com/55985070 canon zeiss compare

On Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Preview preview (125 comments in total)

Interesting thinking going on at Canon HQ. Couple this with a 6D wifi uploading straight to facebook, low light focusing camera, perfect events rig combo, as you wouldn't shoot below F4 anyway.

On Fashion Shoot: Tips from a Pro article (82 comments in total)

Good peek at the fashion photography world. This view centres on hair shots, Catwalk is more sports photography & editorial is the super budget end. Advertising catalogue work is the well paid end. Great read!

On Canon EOS 6D preview (1044 comments in total)

Untethered event photography in low light direct to facebook is the new market segment, Canon have produced the perfect camera for that. SD cards are cheap, The camera is similar priced to the MKII with better low light, Interchangeable focus screens is that an option? 97% coverage viewfinder is fine for run & gun work, lighter for hand held is always better. I am not sure that Canon have stumbled at all. GPS tagging has been wanted as well. People who make money out of event photography will be quietly pleased. Occasional sport shooters may still need the MkIII. I see a lot of wedding shooters who use the occasional prime as being very interested as well. Sure Nikon have some great cameras but the lens market for Canon is so much bigger with second hand lenses a plenty as amateurs switch brands .

Interesting camera, no viewfinder option? well a hotshoe mount will do fine thanks. The 22mm f2 could be promising, lens hood?

On Just Posted: Canon EOS 5D Mark III review news story (706 comments in total)

Canon is the photographers choice with extremely good glass from amazing primes to amazing zooms. Nikon has the reasonably good 14-24 although soft at 24, which in most pro cases is too wide & struggles with flare, Canon skin tone is better. The 1DsIII has been shooting beautiful skin tone for a very long time with very little post processing. The 5DIII is a 1DsIII with very good video functionality at a 5D price. Canon lenses are flatter as well which is much more flattering in people shots (you can always add contrast but you can't take it away). Nikon has tons of resolution but just jump in to the Nikon lens forum & see the complaining about the lack of variety in the lens department (soft 24-70) griping about the primes, contemplating Sigma? for macro its sad! Go in to the canon lens forum very different with endless choices from the top of the line to 2nd & third even 4th tier lenses to choose from joy! A new 24-70II which appears to be amazing a 70-200ISII which is outstanding.
