Hi

I'm new here, but not new to photography.

I have a 30d with the stock 18-55 lens which is good enough for pics of the kids. I am looking at the next lens.

I shyed away from the 50mmf1.8 after reading about issues with the plastic mount, even my old Praktica lenses have metal mounts.

So either it's the 50mmf1.4 or I go longer.. and I could do with longer, but I already have 50mm.. so longer it is.

Checking the 50-200mm zooms, for the same price range, the 85 and the 100 will out resolve the zoom at full stretch, only something like the 70-200 f4L appear to begin to compete. And then there's the f1.8/f2.0 out of focus performance... lovely.

So all's good on the primes.. but I recently discovered Canons latest DPP lens correction algorithm and in my opinion it's like adding a few hundred pounds to the value of any lens it works with (tried it with the 18-55)

Looking at the list of lenses covered both the 100f2 and the 85f1.8 are missing..

Is this me.. will they be added.. or am I making a fuss over nothing?

Thanks in advance

Derek

The 85-1.8 is in the list the 100-2 is not.
To get the latest updated lens list you need to update DPP.

Canon has changed the way you get the latest.

Go to Canon's website and open the software updates link and look for this link:
EOS Digital Solution Disk Software 28.2A
It will ask for your camera serial number so have it handy.
It's a zip file,unzip it and run the exe.

I just noticed also that they did away with the OS dropdown tabs and are using a Auto OS detect now.

I didn't check the whole list but I did notice they added the "100 2.8 Macro IS" to the list in this latest update.

Hope this helps.....

thanks for the info..

I updated DPP yesterday and I didn't see the 85mm f1.8, just the f1.2.

I'll go and cross check everything.

That would be sad, as the weakest link in the 85mm f/1.8 is chromatic aberration, something hat would be good to have a profile for in DPP.

Well, it doesn't help you with DPP, but I just checked and both lenses are covered by Lightroom/Photoshop RAW conversion profiles (A total of 62 Canon EF and EFS lenses have profiles).

Well thanks.. it must be me then... which means a little effort will fix things.

I'm getting my downloads here.. but it seems to be stuck at 3.13.0

http://www.canon.co.uk …aspx?type=downl​oad&page=1 (external link)

I've checked the US site for the 5D mkIII (a new top line body so software should be latest.. but DPP is 3.13.0 not 3.13.20.0

should I be downloading something else?

Additional:

I've found some references to a bundled download including DPP 3.13.20 on the canon site, but as I have a 30D rather than one of the much newer bodies I don't have a correct serial number to download it.

http://www.canon.co.uk …7040&page=1&typ​e=download (external link)

Is there another way of getting the 3.13.20 DPP?

Derek

Edit: Got it!.. the serial number on the bottom of my camera had a scratch, so a 1 looked like a colon, tried the correct SN. and it's now downloading.

All that bother over a scratch!
