abi170845: Wouldn't a person be more interested in buying quality lenses than a DSLR?
What I am saying is there is a bunch of "pro" bodies on sale second mint etc that has lost so much of their value, go and check how much a mint d810 or like new with warranty cost? Compare that to the price of 1.4 G series lenses.
Wouldn't a person be more interested in buying quality lenses than a DSLR?
Go for the Godox barebulbs and the AD600
Lee should also make reverse grads and strip filters for the sw150.
Okay, how about battery life? I get over 1000 shots with my dslr. Do you offer radio trigger for flash? Third party TTL flash from phottix etc? Ultra wide lens like the Canon 11mm zoom? How is your after sales service and spare parts? or is this part of BATA (Buy and throw away) product?
Yeah sure just like the A mount huh?
Hibiscusbloom: Maybe I am just ignorant but why are they putting in so much resources in making a 35mm lens? They are getting not getting any smaller and remain big and chunky. A PJ's lens should always be small and as light as possible.
get a leica then.
dynamics4u: Dear DP-Review: Thanks for a truely excellent lense comparison (&comparison tool). Very objective.
Dear readers, I did the jump over the $$$ fence of the EF 35mm f1.4 Lii one day prior to my trip to Scottland end of last year as I knew I wanted to have a high performance lense for the low light indoor images in some of the Wiskey Distilleries. Low Light, available indoor light images with this lense have not been in this nor in the D.Abott review recently, nor are images simple to find on the web on this lense, yet. For the sake of sharing with the community find some examples here:http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/5583205170
Note 1: All Images Not postprocessed, without Flash, without tripodNote 2: The Wiskey Casks with RAW in Lr and with Dark-Contrast variation, blew my mind what the EOS6D and 35mm could achieve, as one can see back wall (lighten up) or vary the DOF effect of the casks perspective depth via adjusting (darken down). Better than human eye. Enjoy
Exactly! I am STILL waiting for a copy to pop up at my local store, I am in Jakarta Indonesia and the sole distributor Datascrip has been extremely lacking updates to new Canon products such as the M10, the G9X, the G5X, I think they better just let somebody else import Canon products. In Singapore it has been out sins mid October 2015!2015! 3 months ago!
A lot of people are missing the point. It is not all about sharpness. If one is going to buy the Canon 35mm Mk2, it is for shooting wide open under low light or to stop motion, I don't see the point of using this lens under good light. Why spend all that money for an 1.4 if not using it at that aperture 95% of the time.
Thus, it is also the focusing performance, at 1.4 under low light and less than ideal light(indoors etc). So we must compare the focusing performance of the Canon against Sigma and Tamron under low light and the focusing accuracy of all lenses under real life condition.
maximme: this review convinced me to get the Sigma today !
When you get your Sigma, try it under low light such as indoors.
bigdaddave: There are some dreadfully amateur comments here.
The 5DS/R's are professional tools, to be used by people who know what they are doing. For those users these are almost perfect products because they know how to light and how to use dslr's the way THEY need to get their jobs done.
Sonys and Nikons are great too but for a Canon using pro these are superb tools
Different strokes for different folks. But no 11mm zoom from Nikon, buhuuhuhu
I got the cheap Canon m2 for 200 bucks on Amazon. Lucky I already collected mint 11mmzoom, 22mm and the 18mm zoom when the person selling them thought the M was dead.
SushiEater: Mercedes Benz is build the same way but you need to buy two of them. One keep in garage and one to drive. All of this over engineered stuff doesn't prove anything just cost too much. At the end of the day Sigma 35mm F1.4 is better. And you can buy two of them for the price of one Canon.
Price isn't everything. My friend's Sigma struggles during low light, totally frustrating. He is selling it to get the new Canon. Poor man always pays twice.
Ken Rockwell needs to rewrite his review regarding this lens where he said it is mostly made of plastic. Obviously he didn't see the innards of this lens.
wanderingtrails: How does the electronic viewfinder measure up? I've never seen an EVF that I even remotely like.
I tried it at the store, not really great. I was purchasing the new Canon 430 EX III RT and the Sony, Fuji and Samsung NX1 was on demo. I like the original Sony A7 actually, my wife liked the Fuji XT. I enjoyed handling the NX-1 but for that price I'd go for FF the Sony or 6d and a mint Sony A7 is only about 800 bucks, save the rest for a mint second hand lens.
Great! just arrived at my local camera store.Will be getting the receiver to mix hot shoe flash with studio lights, thank you Phottix. Dump your Pocket Wizards on Ebay.
I can print a2 fine arts with my local print shop for about 45 dollars on hahnemuhle fine arts baryta and i can get a discount to about 40 dollars per print if i print 5 or more and even more discount if i print 10 or more and this includes test prints and touch up on l.r until i get it rigt. So for the price of the canon printer and complete set of xtra inks(2000 dollars) i can get 50 prints withou the headache of calibration and wasted papers.
So what will happen to the S lenses? Will the price goes down to 70 percent?
