Will I love my 50 1.4 more on a 5DII?

Markitos, don't apologise for going against the grain ;) I know the 35L is another well-renowned lens and who knows, one day I might add it to my collection. But for now, I have spent enough money!

I hear that. Truthfully, I think you will enjoy the 50 very much on the 5DII... I'm just against canned, coverall answers, since in my example, even though I liked a 50mm lens for some types of photography, I didn't find it optimal for my style of portraiture. For me, I either need something longer, or a wider lens with a shorter MFD to get the framing that I like.

Thanks, Markitos. I know what you mean. And I can't wait to try out the 50mm on the 5DII. I can't believe how ridiculously excited I am about going to a full frame camera!

And your native language would be... Dutch perhaps? :D

Short answer is yes. I was in the same shoe and had 30D with 50mm f/1.4 for the longest time. Did not find much use for it due to the crop, but with 5D I found a new use for the 50mm. the 50 is one of my favorite lens now.

Now who would have guessed that? ;) I know I have a very common Dutch name. I'm from Flanders though, Belgium.

Els may I ask why are you getting a 135 when you have the 100L.

You'll like it. I have to admit though, that I use my 50 less and my 85 more on my 5d2. I guess I just like that focal length. The 85 can be magic on full frame.

Because of what I have read about the 135L basically. The colour rendition, smooth bokeh, fast AF, and the length should be great for portraits of my children outside.

I love my 100L, but I wanted the 135L as well... so I bought it 8-)

Thanks, everyone!

Thanks, Ricardo, for teaching me a new word... English is my second language, and as a translator by profession, I love discovering new words! 'Perspicacious'...

Yeah, I did my research before I decided to go with the 5DII and the 135mm. The parcel should be here on Monday :)

Markitos, don't apologise for going against the grain ;) I know the 35L is another well-renowned lens and who knows, one day I might add it to my collection. But for now, I have spent enough money!

What a great decision. Everyone who owns a full frame should have the 135mm 2.0. Its an absolutely perfect combination!

I bought the 50/1.4 a few weeks ago to replace the 50/1.8 on my 5D Mk II, and I can't get over how good it is, and how much better it is than the 1.8.

I'm sure you'll find the 50/1.4 absolutely wonderful ... but not as wonderful as the 5D Mk II itself :D

What kind of a dumb remark is that? I thought this forum was above personal insults, or did I read that wrong?


Growing old disgracefully!
