I think I am going to lie low for a few months... Then whichever has the best report card... Sigma 50 1.4 Art, Canon 50 f? IS I am not sure about an 85. One of them for my birthday in September...

In the meantime, small things... pinch caps for all my lenses, body caps, Color Munkie.

I am not sure whether my el cheapo CPL and ND filters are OK to get stepdown rings for them...

I think the CPL is imparting a bit of a green/gray hue. I will take some side by-side photos and see what you guys think.

Hey I've had some of the girls ask for prints. What lab do you typically use for client prints?

for normal prints, i just do it in costco. i usually download their printer color profiles but then i found out that sRGB are just as good so i am printing with sRGB profile since.

Thanks Pauly.

I've used Costco before which I was pretty happy about but I don't have a membership (used my sister's before) so I'm trying to look for something more accessible.

Hi CJ,

I've had pretty good luck with photos from Mpix. The delivery was pretty quick too...

Is anybody else following Matt Kloskowski's "month without Photoshop" over at lightroomkillertips.co​m?

I like mpixpro or mpix. They offer drop shipping which is really nice. Their fuji pearl is awesome for portraits. Good customer service and prices.

Most pro labs do this and it is a nice feature for you pros. I will also vouch for the quality of the Pearl paper. We had two nice portrait photos damaged during our move from NYC (they dropped the pallet while in storage and broke a whole bunch of things, including the glass and frame of every photo in that pallet. The broken glass scratched the photos in many places). I scanned the photos, cloned/healed the scratches and ordered prints mounted on thin foamcore (so that they don't warp once mounted into frames with matting). They came back better than the (VERY expensive) originals.

On another subject, I think I got a lens for free...:D

I mounted my Sigma 8-16 on the 5DIII... Predictably, it vignettes to 14 mm.

BUT

I can crop even the 8 mm and get the true 8 mm 'perspective', the insane sharpness and the impressive rectilinear performance of this lens.

What I crop out is the sides where there is a lot of rectilinear distortion ('object stretching') anyway. I am impressed at an 16:9 sample

FOV around 11 mm with the second crop.

Gerry, I must need a lenses-for-dummies tutorial because when I read your discussion about wide lenses I get really lost. lol The more I learn, I realize how little I know. :/

Sorry Brenda, I got a bit excited, so I skipped a bunch.

As you know, I got the Sigma 8-16 two months ago. It is a lens designed for crop cameras, like my 60D (for which I bought it) Basically, what this means is that at the lens mount the glass area is much smaller, since it needs to project the image to a much smaller sensor. This (combined with the 'hood' in front of the lens cause 'vignetting' when you use a Full Frame sensor.

The black areas you see in the photo is the vignetting.


HOSTED PHOTO

So, basically, I can crop the FF photo and get a usable photo.

The Focal Length does not change (the lens doesn't really know what is behind it (FF sensor or Crop sensor) so I get an 8 mm non-Fisheye lens. Actually an 8-16 non-fisheye (or rectilinear) lens...

However, since I have to crop out the vignette, I end up with a smaller field of view, which actually corresponds to the field of view of a 12 mm (FOV=angle from the far left ot the far right of the photo). But with the 8 mm perspective (since I haven't changed the relative distance of subjects and their distance to the camera).

Is this explanation any better?

EDIT: The reason I am thrilled is that Canon makes a 8-15 L for $1500 and it is a fisheye... I don't care about fisheyes... I get it for 'free'...

I have to experiment a bit to see what are the drawbacks, I suspect that the sharpness in the corners may suffer a bit, until I crop to the equivalent of the crop sensor
