Is a nifty fifty embarrassing to use on a 5d3?

What I would do is purchase one of those coffee mugs of a 50L or a 24-70 and cut a hold so it acts like a lens hood over the 50mm f/1.8...

Don't act like a high-school kid who thinks people will laugh at him if he wears a certain t-shirt or jacket,

who cares what other people think?

It's not like you're going to walk up to another photographer and he's going to laugh at you...

LOL That would be pretty funny to see.

lol are you sure?

I dare to say that the 5D3 is leaps and bounds better than any rebel :rolleyes:

The 5D3 is leaps and bounds better than a 5D2. Saying a rebel and a 5D3 perform similarly is like saying that Billy Ray Cirus and Geoffrey Rush share similar acting prowess.

roll eyes indeed.

I'm new to the thread. My thoughts, a nifty fifty should not be a factor of embarassment. Embarassing would be using a point and shoot at the zoo and trying to take photos of the monkeys through a glass window with the flash going off. Or similarly, taking a photo from the stands and having the flash go off. Should I be embarassed that my cordless drill cost about $150 instead of the $400 model. Hells to the no. Just a tool. To tell you the truth, I was a little embarassed on behalf of the guy at the zoo that had two 1Dx strapped around each shoulder just to capture photos of zoo animals. (most of which weren't even visible because of the heat). THAT just looked showy and a little eccentric.

I would say, however, that a 5D3 and nifty fifty aren't an ideal combination, which goes without saying. If it were your only lens I would be concerned about your priorities. But that's not the case, so I don't see how the question should have even garnered a 9 page thread on the topic. ;)

Quite honestly, it's actually a pretty decent combo.

No need to ma it. The focus seems excellent in my eyes.

U can view some of my shots on Facebook now but I am on holiday and didn't bring my laptop ,

One thing in hate about the camera is that hit eats cf cards for breakfast . I had to buy some cf cards here and need someone as I only have one 8gb card left that can only take 200 photos.

I am also recording video too so that doesn't help lol

sandisk SDHC-16gb-45mb/s can be had for 20-25USD if you look in the right places. Looking at the 4K for the camera itself, another $100+ bucks can start you out at 80GB. I would hope 3K raw photos would enough to not consider an issue. Anyhow, I'm stating the obvious and derailing the subject so I'll shut up now. :-)

sounds kinda cool. I've heard of the eye-fi but haven't looked into it. Gonna have to check it out.

EDIT: that is cool. looks like it would be great for studio work or just general shooting around the house.

Try a 85/1.8 and see what happens. Generally the optics is not where the most significant difference will be found it's in the build quality.
