Siddharth: Assuming I do win a lottery or a bag of $4000 falls on my head..and I buy this lens..
But how do I manual focus with my 5Dm3? Its too painful...
Hope Canon takes out 50 1.2L II

6D takes manual focus screens not 5DIII

Disappointing looks like my advice to friends if your buying aps-c stick with Nikon the camera, focus, lenses are of a higher quality. If you shoot prime lenses like me then buy the glass which in my case is 35L, 50L, 85L. Nikon don't have the goods there, any Canon FF body will do the shots will come out beautiful with no post production work needed. Perfect for the pro DSLR shooter looking for the best results with minimal effort.

jackpro: this is another option http://enlightphotopro.com/gear/the-orbis-ringflash/

the orbis is designed to minimise hotspot at flash connection point so sinister bottom lighting it is not - the rayflash advantage is it can take my 85L the orbis can't http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=EeUt9PF6jD0#t=162

Nishi Drew: Reading the comments, it is clear how many people can't handle switching lenses :)

A light Canon 6D with a 24-70 f2.8 will be the wedding shooters choice but sigma hit it out of the park with the pricing wow

cool - people are an interesting subject & as long as he maintains copyright via publishing a low volume coffee table book no harm done. it gets a bit dodgy when sites like dpreview promote the photog by publishing pics that it gets a bit nefarious.

///M: WOW, Canon can spend all this R&D on matched cinema lenses (which will likely be only sold to rental houses) for this niche market, but can't come up with a viable mirrorless camera with compact lenses, really? 1/2 of the DSLR sales in Japan are mirrorless cameras, it does not matter how small the crop sensor bodies get, they are still big and bulky compared to the micro 4/3 and other systems.

The video industry is a huge untapped market for Canon DSLR is declining as mirrorless rises. I think Canon as usual knows exactly where the money is.

In reply to:

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

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.

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!
