Been a while since I've posted anything here! Finally got my 5d working again, so I put her to use yesterday at a local car show! Some of my favs.. All shot with a 50 1.8!

I have gotten into biking recently (my wife and I are training for a sprint tri) and got a new mount for my phone. More concerned with tracking average speed and distance than making calls. So went out and took some pics. All taken with the 5D - first 2 are taken with the 135L, the rest 35 f2.

Loved my 5d mk1....the main reason I got rid of it and got a 6d was the amount of sensor dust it collected.... I think I would say it was my most favourite camera, image wise as good as the 6d..

Yeah I have heard IQ wise it is very similar. I'm guessing that a high percentage of 5Dc owners move to the 6D as their next camera. I know that's what I am looking to move to if I need the ISO flexibility in the future.

All these were taken Saturday at a church car show near Knoxville TN. All shot with a 5Dc and the 85mm at f2.2

Don't worry about your average speed; there's just too many confounding factors for it to be an accurate yardstick for your effort, progress, etc. In your position, I would look for a heart rate monitor and cadence sensor that's compatible with your phone (BTLE, hopefully). Look in to and start training by heart rate zones and work on your cadence to find the range that'll allow you to put out a good amount of power while not over-cooking your legs (a lot of practiced riders find the 90-ish RPM range to be best for them, but mileage varies, obviously).

Thanks a lot for the tips! I'm not crazy worried about any of the readings at this point, but would like to know a ballpark of where I'm starting to measure progress. Also I was kinda craving a speedometer to see how fast I am hauling down the hills, lol. Where I live is also very hilly, so I don't expect to be setting any records with my average. Good tips about the heart rate and cadence!

I love my 5DC, but I'm looking to upgrade so if anyone is interested in a 5dc I have one for sale

EXCELLENT advice. Heart rate balanced against cadence is the most important measurement for training. The only time I worry about avg. speed is over the same course comparing efforts. And then I look at segment times as a part of the whole.

Strava is a pretty decent app if you're still looking.

Thanks everyone for the advice/tips. I have the CycleDroid app for now and have heard of Strava, may check into that soon. I haven't ridden yet with the mount/app combo, so I will see how it goes this weekend when I have time to put some miles in.

Love everyone's pics in here.

Could you guys please give me some suggestions; I'm looking for a fast prime with good AF.
I've been checking out the Canon 35L and 135L, but if I can't afford either of them, what lens should I pick?
Canon 85 1.8, Canon 100 2.0, Canon 50 1.4?
Sigma? Tamron?

Thanks!

Here are two shots from my brothers wedding, first one a bit OOF. Both taken with a loaned 50 1.8, but I wasn't happy with its AF. (Might have been my fault too)

Heya,

I'd get an 85 F1.8 & a 35 F2 (even an old one, or a yongnuo clone). 85mm pretty much lives on my 5D, it's my most focal length.

Alternatively, save for a used Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC.

Very best,

the 85mm 1.8 is a very sharp lens and focuses very fast. takes great photos. much better than the 50 1.8

The difference in FoV from 35 to 50 to something in the 100-range is huge and should be the primary factor. The 35 f/2 IS, the 85/1.8, 100/2 all have good AF.

The 50/1.4 has an inferior type of USM compared to the other three.
