Re: The Photography Thread

Loving the 5D2 still. Full frame has made such a huge difference to me. Really wish I had made the jump a lot sooner.

Re: The Photography Thread

Nice job drag! The out of focus blades of glass in the front is a real nice touch.

Wilch...good to hear! I just pulled the trigger and ordered a couple L lenses yesterday one of which is the 135L which I know is going to be too long for my 7D. So I'm hoping it sells this weekend and I can get me a decent used 5D II.

Re: The Photography Thread

Well I am now the proud owner of my very first L lens. (70-200 f/4L IS). Got in a couple test shots outside before the rain hit, got to say, I am loving the USM!

Distant, Nice job on the 70-200L. I've had that lens now for a few years. Great isn't it? Your daughter is adorable...they grow up so fast don't they?

Re: The Photography Thread

Thanks Shred! Love that shot! Natural light is my favorite way to shoot. Is that the 50 1.8 or the 1.4? I have been thinking of dumping my nifty and getting the 1.4 (more for the micro-usm than anything).
Kind of getting myself set for going FF. I was going to sell my 7D and get a 5D II, but I had too many low ball offers. Think I will keep it, and maybe next year add a camera. The 6D really intrigues me. It has some limitations, but I think as a second (portrait) camera it would be nice.

135L f/2 no sharpening or anything added (just a levels adjustment in PS)

Re: The Photography Thread

Thanks Rotti! When I bought it, I didn't think I was going to be keeping the 7D, but I have found it quite useful and keep it on there most of the time now.
Sure miss your winter shots this year!

Re: The Photography Thread

Thanks, it's been all work and no play for me for the past year. I'm hoping to fix that soon though and I am planning to buy a camera in the next month or two.
