Nice capture. I browsed through your other work and it's all fantastic stuff. Love your processing style.

Hi,
I have this lens from 1 week and I really like it but I have to get used to this new focal length 50mm because I have used only the 135/2 during 8 months with my 5DII. I thinkI'll fall in love to these 2 lens.
I really like photography ... but I need to capture the light better. All your pictures help me day by day to improve and inspire me. See you

PS: I'm french but I live in Barcelona (13 years) so please sorry for my poor english !

@1.4 the 24L is probably sharper.. Ive got a really good copy of the 24L and its actually quite phenomenal to work with. I've actually been shooting with a 50 1.4 for the last 2 years and have only just upgraded (i know its a big jump) to all the bits in my sig in the last few weeks haha..

Thanks bud! Yeah pretty stoked to be getting married!

Had a look at your work too, couldn't stop at the single page! great stuff! You've got a really defined, clean style. Really easy on the eyes and tells a great story.

Yeah i usually do the same with corporate work. Good to be able to control the light around the environment instead of changing the environment around the lighting.

I'm having a mad dilemma at the moment - one i'm sure many people have gone through: 50L or 24-70L? Can anyone justify why they'd take a 50L over a more 'usable' lens like the zoom? I know which I want, and I know which I need, and it's not getting any easier...

That's your call.

I'm looking at this lens or the 135L and 3/4 of my lenses are already at or have 50mm in the FL. :lol:

In my case, I got the 17-55 (to your 24-70) instead. Hope that helps.

the 24-70 isnt all that great unless you have one of the rare sharp copies. or you dont mind stopping it down... but then you might as well get the 24-105 f/4L which is a REALLY sharp nice lens and has more reach
