Yes, I was surprised how contrasty it was on the 5DII. I'd previously been using the 17-40 f4L with the camera and the combination worked well. I think the sensor in the 5DII is very contrasty and when used with a really contrasty lens like the 35 f1.4L, the shots turn out rather biting and 'gritty' which is great for PJ work but not for portraits or groups. especially of older people!


PS. Like the shots of Oradour-sur-Glane on your Flickr site. B&W suits the situation well. I've taken quite a few of my family and friends there over the years. Surprising how few people seem to know about it.


17-40L on 5D2 at 17mm side

17-40L on 5D2 at 40mm side

24mm TS-E II on 5D2

And #1 and #3 were taken hand-held.  Oh, added another two from 24-105L that all taken hand-held
