I can turn the camera off, pull off a lens, put a new one on, turn camera back on in about 7 seconds if need be.

You can save a second by not turning the camera off :D

It's true! :D I don't turn my camera off anymore when I swap lens. I read somewhere (I don't remember where) that it doesn't matter if the camera's still on. My 5DM2 still working fine so far :D

LOL! Yeah, I don't know who to believe on that point. I used to never care, then I saw a pro in a photography seminar recommend it. I don't even realize I do because it's become such habit. But hey, if it doesn't matter, I have no problem re-training myself to back to not caring anymore. I'm all for believing in truth.

I wonder if the argument has to do with switching the lens and exposing the contacts to potential precipitation. Sticking to a habit in the event that something might short-circuit. Wedding photography is like juggling 8 balls at once, sometimes. A simple moment of forgetfulness when a light rain starts? Just a theory.

I dropped the 24-70 [mark I], too. Too much distortion, too soft, too heavy. It just isn't a great performer. I think it is the worst performing L Canon has.

35L is usually as wide as I need. Sometimes I will take a couple shots with a 14, but that is at maybe 40% of weddings.

I rented a 24-70mm a few times and tried to like it and just couldn't. I tested someones 35 1.4 once and fell in love with it and that is what I got. a 70-200 is a must have for weddings, I regret selling mine.

fyi, you don't need to turn off your camera when changing lenses.

The only recommendation that I remember seeing (I think from Canon) was to not dismount a lens with IS while the IS was active. Other lenses can be pulled off anytime.

I noticed your using a 14mm f/2.8 Mark I, not the mark II, hows the IQ on that? I have been wondering if I should pull the trigger on my friends.

I use the 135L and simply back up a few miles. I call it Gator (external link) zoom.


Did you lose Digital Photo Professional (DPP)? Get it here (external link). Cursing at your worse-than-a-map reflector? Check out this vid! (external link)

Not great. The distortion sucks balls.

But I got it super cheap and I don't use it enough to justify the cost of a new one. It is just not a big money maker lens. It is a one-trick pony and generally not worth the investment.

If you would like a little more reach then the 24-105 is a very capable lens.

Ahhhh got it, so the manual focus Samyang/Rokinon/etc will work just as well then haha!
