Love ur photos. How do you process the "warm" color tone? standard pictrue style or?
I am a happy owner of 24L and 100L, looking at your lenses, looks like we are on the same track. But somehow I found that 24L is not that "sharp" wide open compared to my sigmalux 50 when I was with nikon. Do you agree or is it user error? I mostly choose single focus point which I usually point to where I want the focus to be, in single shot mode and wide open I dont get a lot of keeper with 24L while I do get a lot of keeper with the sigma + nikon.
What is your setting when shooting baby? Is spot AF better? I mostly use centre weighted actually.
Thanks guyverias. For this shot, I converted the RAW via ACR 6.1. Settings were: 1/250s, f/2, iso400, evaluative.
Adjusted white balance to 5300 (shot w/ flash bounced off the ceiling) and kept everything else default (5 blacks, +50 brightness, +25 contrast), added lens vignetting (-50). Once imported into CS5, I just did a quick Auto Tone adjustment. Tagged my signature and that's it.
As for sharpness of the lens, I don't have any other wide primes to compare with. It is sharper than the 24L classic I had for a week wide open. It is sharper than the Canon 50/1.4 I had previously before I sold it. But I've never shot with the sigmalux 50 nor a Nikon. My only guess is that the Nikon images appear sharper due to Nikon's default settings/renderings? Most of the time when I see Nikon images, I see that there is more saturation and contrast than those of the Canon counterparts. This seems to be a "general" thing I notice when comparing the two manufacturers and I couldn't imagine that it's because all Nikon users like to dial up their contrast and saturation in post. But I guess anything is possible.
