comment Low weight photography bag recomendation
@DanWolfgang hehe. you can do it if you unmount the 200mm and put it into the upper department ). and it's not a lens case, but a 5-lens backpack

comment Is there anything in medium format systems which can beat pro-level 35mm digital with fast lenses in low light?
@StanRogers it's not just the ISO. If all things were equal, I'd shoot at lowest iso available, with the lens open as wide as possible. The stuff that I read basically says that medium format lenses do let more light through, but that that light has to be distributed around a large sensor, so in terms of light transmition, f/2 on medium format equals f/2 on 35mm sensor. My question is: let's say we are taking pictures with 100mm f/2 with 35mm sensor vs medium format. Will the two require the same exposure times to get the same picture if everything else is the same?

comment Compare Canon 16-35mm II and 14mm II in terms of image quality
@MichaelClark using Zeiss doesn't make much sense if you're Nikon shooter, but if I intend to use it on Canon body, Zeiss will give me focus confirmation on autofocus points, which is actually really helpful! It really sucks though that Nikon has proper wide angle lenses and Canon doesn't

comment Compare Canon 16-35mm II and 14mm II in terms of image quality
The thing is - I shoot most of my lenses wide open most of the time (especially that I'll need this lens to work inside the buildings). And at f2.8 Zeiss clearly outperforms the two other lenses across the field, and 14mm prime is the worst everywhere except in the center. Anyway, this is a better answer to my question, I'm awarding the answer to you. Thanks!

actually, if I want to have to live with another manual focus lens, I'll probably go for the Zeiss 15mm instead )

Sometimes there are moments where I regred that I'm not a Nikon shooter. This is one of them ). Looks like a really nice lens! Thanks for the suggestion

renting would be really nice. but they don't rent those lenses where I live. that's why I'm asking )

comment How important is a fast aperture in a wide angle lens?
I'd say, wide aperture is always important

comment Canon EF135mm f/2L vs 70-200mm f/2.8L IS for Indoor shooting
+1 for demonstrating why its better to use wide lenses in bad lighting conditions ) (e.g. why 2.0 is inherently better than 2.8)

ens performance doesn't depend on the amount of light well, that's something new to me )

@MichaelClark Ziess doesn't have AF, otherwise we wouldn't have this discussion and I've already bought Zeiss 35mm f/1.4. What I meant is that Zeiss lens did let much more light through. Canon 85mm f/1.2 is definitely brighter than the Zeiss f/2 though

it's a shame though. because according to this test: facebook.com/… the bokeh on canon can get REALLY ugly (

well, i'm going to be using it at f/1.4 a lot. no point in buying a f/1.4 lens to use it at f/2. And the deal breaker for me is that it appears to eat less light than the canon as I feared (this is extremely important to me)

well, it's about time, and for 50mm f/1.2 too.

well, this looks interesting: amazon.com/review/R90LRWO9H0HO8/… On the copies I have, the sigma offers no increase in sharpness or image quality when compared to the canon, a substantial step or two down in terms of vignetting, and requires approximately 1/3 of a stop slower shutter speed to expose the photo equivalently to the canon. Looks like a deal breaker for me ((

hehe. as canon proved by producing plasticky version of 24-70 which costs twice as much )

also, what worries me is that I don't understand why Sigma is nearly twice as cheap as Canon. It's not Canon, that's $200 discount. Where are the other $300?

The oft rumored EF 35 f/1.4L II is being talked about again. We’re told an announcement for the new “L” prime will only happen once the new EF 24-70 f/2.8L II begun shipping in decent quantity. That would put the announcement sometime in 2012 with availability probably being in early 2013. One patent for the optical forumla has been around for a while. The rumor has come and gone many times already
