  • That is a great price for an excellent portrait lens Dave!  I've had good luck with Canon Refurbs.  Please keep us apprised!
  • Canon is known for hosing third party
  • I now have the 50 f1.8 stm and the tamy 45 f1.8 and canon 35 f2IS bokeh of the tamy and canon 50 not the greatest hopefully canon gives us a new 50 and 85 that I can afford with good bokeh and wide ...
  • I had 2 - 50 f1.4 I had to stop down to f2.5 to get sharp eyes whereas my tamy 45 f1.8 is sharp at f1.8
  • Thanks Nice combo. the older L had weak 24 mm.  The version II improved but still had some fringing.  As DA review says, the RF version is the best ever. Stay with what is working well - I liked ...
  • the rule of thumb for me is iPhone for jean pocket and then use a jacket pocket approach, which fits my rp + rf 24-105 L I hope someday you experience RF glass - there is just something about it I ...
  • hmm, years ago I started with a gaming laptop screen and progressed to a high resolution 27 inch calibrated photographer's monitor that expresses more of the truth - below images were sooc btw - ...
  • Added 2 photos to their gallery

  • “Not Common” for non-pro to buy RF 28-70 beast imo PJ Pros – and I agree with them = the 24 mm fov is the 5th most important focal length in a pro shoot – environmental portraits and when space ...
  • exactly. well said. In fact for some of us it makes more sense to run two bodies and two primes. RLight’ is way over the top using that beast to shoot his kids imo.  Also not having 24 mm is a ...
  • I use the 100L with a 1 foot mfd and it is a great focal length.  Your need for an 85 fov is not picky but a kinda weird.  Btw - the 56 is very sharp and doesn’t have significant fringing issues, ...
  • i have the 100L I photograph with in the interim.  Their loss if they don’t want my business.
  • Thanks Dave.  We’ve done enough events to know.  I’ll be patient.  Good to hear from you.
  • dis the 56 - wow the siggy 56 f1.4 is so much better than the purple people eater 85 f1.8 if they put IBIS in the next m, it will be a light weight dream combo
  • LOL - the EF 85 f1.8 was introduced in 1992 and sucks as a purple fringing people eater... yeah and the 85 f1.4 still sucks with fringing for the high price tag...  give us Nikon f1.8's well ...
  • these RF's, with IS, are what I wait for also but we've been waiting forever for these in the ef mount they gave us the great 35 f2 IS but they grind their teeth, worried about canalization of ...
  • pros will use what pros will use but xt30 is not a primary I'd use in my pro shoots that is a slam to call it a beginner, browsing through the manual, this isn't a beginner camera nor for a beginner ...
  • I like my d pad on my RP you seem more video-centric than me hardly, I have not bought m cameras.  It takes a m5ii/m50ii with ibis for me to find a soul match well, the reviews stated the m6ii ...
  • nope - they lose sales if this happens but Canon has dpaf for the essential af to and fro and we hope canon gives added video features in m5ii worse touch screen worse touch screen simple is good ...
  • yes it is yep value for f1.4 glass on crop doesn't have 33 mpxl; doesn't have ibis; doesn't have dpp f2 on crop ( f3.2 ff equivalent) not for me.  Study pricing.  the siggy f1.4's pricing smoke the ...
