Happy 4th of July! I am enclosing two pictures (small versions) from this evening's fireworks in my community. I took them with 50L on 1Ds M3; both focus and exposure were set manually (minor editing in Aperture - no Photoshop)...

Thanks so much. This is my first attempt at capturing fireworks. As noted earlier in my posts, I really like the versatility of 50L...

good job. I've made the mistake of fighting to gather more ambient when capturing fireworks (bulb mode) and have never liked my results. I think you have just the right exposures here.

Thanks. Unlike landscape photography, where proper exposure can be achived with consistency, capturing fireworks needs some luck as well :-)

Can someone please verify or refute the assumption that 24L II is as sharp as 50L? Thanks.

I'm assuming you mean when wide open, the 50 is somewhat soft when viewing at 1:1 on a display. Prints reveal nothing noticeable. I find the 24 has terrible CA under high contrast situations. Thank goodness for the powerful new CA removal tool in Lightroom 4!

Center sharpness is quite good on the 24LII

I can confirm that the 24L II is much sharper than the 50L...especially wide open.

Those are really nice shots. Good job

The 24L II is sharper than the 50L wide open and stopped down. That's not to say the 50L isn't a sharp lens, it is! But the 24L II really is a fine piece of glass.

Oh, and ALL fast lenses will show CA wide open on high contrast subjects, you just have to be aware of it when shooting to save PP time. Although Canon now have a lens aberration setting in DPP where you download the profiles for your lenses and it'll automatically remove things like CA for you.
