  • Created poll thread EF to RF Lens Purchases
    If you're like me, you are probably questioning any new lens purchases (EF or RF mount). With the RF mount looking to be the direction Canon is moving, it seems a little odd to buy new EF lenses ...
  • I think he borrowed this copy to determine whether he wants to buy it.
  • Every test crop I've looked at shows the edge being better than the corners. Here's a test site ( Optical Limits ) that uses numbers to validate the relative score of a lens. Personally, I've never ...
  • While the illustration does show a hair of increased size, I don't know where that rumor came from, but I'd guess the optical illusion of showing the lens elements moved back helps to make it ...
  • Replied in Cost
    Yeah, I'm with you, and will hope for the best. Tech is definitely getting better in regards to lenses, and its not a stretch to think it may not be as bad as it has been in the past.  One other ...
  • Personally, I'm very sensitive to CA, both lat. and long., but I don't feel like these are bad at all for a 1.2 lens wide open. But to each their own.
  • Replied in Cost
    True... but I don't know a soul who thinks focus by wire is an improvement in usability. Fly by wire on planes offers HUGE advantages, for example, by controlling multiple movable surfaces in ...
  • Replied in Cost
    I'd bet the biggest reason for focus by wire is simply cost. It wasn't put on the $120 - $200 lenses for nothing. You can delete the physical hardware and the software is the biggest hurdle from ...
  • Replied in Possibly...
    I have two reasons in mind. First,  it is very possible it lost a little IQ because of the optical corrections they needed to make to drop the weight. This formula is substantially different, and ...
  • Rumored specifications (1) 28MP full frame sensor (2) Dual Pixel Auto Focus (3) IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) (4) 10fps ...
  • Why would you link IBIS to the EF mount? I can't think of a reason they would have any relation. The biggest issue with IBIS and the Canon line was the OVF to Phase Detect AF issue. Moving the ...
  • As with all things Canon, it will be greatly met with disappointment and then the discontentment will slowly morph in to acceptance of a solid offering that will undoubtedly be behind the times. ...
  • +1 on the idea of looking at the Irix lenses. I went with the 11-24L and love it so much I'd buy another if it were damaged/lost, but that's not everyone's cup of tea. While I think very highly of ...
  • Forgive me if I missed an objection that excludes the Sigmas but, I think hands down they are the best bang for the buck. I personally like to go with all Canon gear, but if I needed something at ...
  • Get ahead of the curve, jump on the medium format mirrorless bandwagon. Enter a market where your tech will make a difference. Also, if you're going to force a new mount on people make sure its for...

  • At f8 lens combos, you are effectively forced to use the center point on most cameras, and because of that you'll need to focus and recompose. This creates a problem because the animal will likely ...
  • I like this one the most, however to be a little critical, I would suggest you be very cognizant of where the point of focus is. In this shot it looks to be on the feet, and that will generally ...
  • I just looked through the manual and couldn't find the user selectable mirror lockup delay. The 5D4 may not support it like the 5DS.
  • I agree with Steve on this one. Stop worrying about the gear. The problem is skill. I've been there and done that. I too, thought the gear was the answer at one time. While gear may make getting a ...
  • I'm all for bringing the price down, but the fact they have a cheap 500mm f5.6 stabilized lens already leads me to believe this lens is prioritizing IQ... which would make sense for the price tag. ...
