Either way the hoods really look funny to me. I noticed it didn't block much flare when I had the 17-40 and the times I shot w/ the 16-35 II. A high quality filter and I was good to go UWA

It does help block out flare and most importantly it acts as an AWESOME "bumper"...especially in crowded Korea my lens gets bumped into all the time...I'd rather have the hood take the hit/scratches than the end of the barrel...

Get it, you won't regret it. I've also owned the 17-40L and the 16-35L II is superior in every way.

Absolutely...I loved my 17-40L and was very reluctant to switch, but wanted a top-notch lens for my time in South-east Asia. I'm soooo glad I did it. The 16-35L II is not perfect, but damn does it come close! I don't think I could think of a better travel lens :)

620 roll film, same as the Brownies and can probably take 120 rolls with the lips cut down as well. Some more info on it here: http://camerapedia.wik​ia.com/wiki/Kodak_Duaf​lex (external link)

Here's a crappy old Zenit.

Nice...Which model is that? Looks like a mid-80s. I have a Zenit E and a Zenit 12XP

I like the bare look, it's actually textured making it look more real. Clear coating would probably make it look like any other fake carbon vinyl.

I actually see it the other way around. On cars real CF is clear coated, but most of the vinyls, which are the "fakes" are not clear coated.

Why does the red ring on that 50mm make it instantly better

It doesn't make it better at all; it just makes it A LOT more expensive.

5D + Sigmalux shot with 1Ds2, nifty fifty, and 580exII triggered.

A much better shot of a new lens - the NEX is great fun and produces superb images:

Granted, the L lenses look nice with their fancy red band...but really, surely it's what the lens can DO that matters. Sigmalux is 90% the lens that the 50 1.2 is, and apparently has better control of CA. But what do I care...I use the Sigmalux professionally and couldn't give two hoots about L glass that people carry around as some sort of status symbol. :D

The model's pretty much scraped off and I can't find the camera to have a closer look, but going through the models listed on Wikipedia the TTL sounds familiar and looks the same.

Of course, but all the fake carbon is also shiny. As far as I'm aware the Di Noc stuff is the only bare textured vinyl out there thus many people would assume it's real. You could even make one from real carbon and clear coat it and most people would still think it's fake at first glance.
