I just recently received a canon 50mm F1.4 which seems to be extremely soft wide open, is it the lens or is it normal? This is a shot with f1.4. It is not a bad shot, all of the shots are very similar to this one. This is a shot with f2.2 which is a lot more sharper. Another thing I wonder about, my friend has Nikkor 35 f1.8g which is WAY sharper at f1.8 than my canon at f2.2.My camera is 500d, if this should matter. I am really surprised by the quality of the photo.

So, I started with a Rebel XT, moved on to a T1i... I'm now looking to upgrade to a new Canon body. With regards to the sound of the shutter/mirror specifically, are all the Rebel models pretty much the same in terms of how loud it sounds? If the T6i/T6s shutter is as loud as the T1i, then I definitely won't be considering it. At this point, I'm 90% convinced I'll be to a 70D/7D mk II/6D (*maybe*) for a quieter shutter. I've watched a few youtube videos of recording the shutter noise for...
I know this is an often-asked question, but I have a very specific set of needs that I would like to solicit advice for. I currently have a T1i and am planning to upgrade to a new body before the end of the year. My main interest is with live-music photography, and what I'm looking for is focus accuracy, and good high-iso/low-light performance in an APS-C body. I mainly shoot with the 17-55 2.8 and the 135 2.0L. I don't care about video, fast burst modes, large buffers or sports...
Hey folks, I'm a novice photographer and have been learning with a Canon Rebel T1i along with a kit lens (18-55mm) and a 50mm prime. I feel I'm ready to move on and upgrade my camera and I know this camera is quite a bit outdated now. My wife and I travel a bit and I love to practice photography as we go. I've been wanting to downsize from the size of a DSLR to a mirrorless but still have great quality pictures. After a fair amount of research and comparison of specs within this site and...
Hello everyone. I wanted to solicit some opinions about something. I have a Canon T1i and I noticed some dark spots on the photos I took that had a lighter background (blue sky, light colored walls, etc). Thinking it was dirt I took it to a Canon service center for a sensor cleaning and found out from them that there were scratches on the CMOS. They gave me a repair estimate of $200. Judging by what I'm seeing around the web, it's probably worth more than the camera itself. So I'm wondering...
Good evening (or morning) I am student looking to upgrade my canon rebel t1i and I have been looking at my different options for a while. I have settled on 2 that I believe are in my desired price range, the canon 7D Mark II and the panasonic GX8. The main difference between them being the sensor. I love the GX8 but fear that I will not perform as I intend it to. I love night time sky shots to capture stars but also love street photography and the look and feel of the GX8. I have pretty much...
Hello, A number of years ago I bought a Canon Eos5 35mm SLR, it came with an EF 28-105 lens. This worked well for me for a quite a few years. Roll forward to now, I put this lens on a 500D DSLR. Every picture I take now it just out of focus if I use auto focus. Manually I can get a sharp image. Why it this? I though that as long as the lens would fit the body then it should work, at least something as basic as autofocus. Is there something I can do? Thank you Jonathon
Hey, I just sold my ancient Canon T1i and horribly built 50mm 1.8 and ordered a refurbished GX7 off of evilbay. I am extremely excited about the stylish and compact form factor of M43 as well as all of the modern touches. My only concern is bokeh though.... I have only shot APS-C and I wanted to know if the difference is very noticeable in day to day shooting. I understand about crop factors and all of that so I'm not looking for scientific explanations, just your personal opinion. Thanks
