Mine will be here on the 11th! I traded my very seldom used 24-105 plus a bit of $ for it. I think I did the right thing. I owned one for a short time a while back and sold it to fund my 7D and have missed it ever since!

You know, I recognise mastery at work and I deeply admire Alejandro's images. As images - as artwork - I think they're superb. As depictions of people they don't do anything for me. Probably they're not supposed to. They are fitting in with the publicly promulgated idea of "beauty" which to me is anything but. But from a technical point of view they're superb pictures.

Now back to your usual viewing.

OK, I'm ticked off -- I had a disruption of the force just as I was posting a "long-winded" reply to the below and it all got lost in time, like tears in the rain...



So, what you could consider a "normal" range for getting a decently large depth of field with the 5D would be say from f/8 to f/16, at which point diffraction is beginning bot not really noticeable.

But, two areas that need special thought and attention are macros, where at extremely close shooting distances depth of field is measured in millimeters, and landscape/scenic shots where you want both distant objects and very close objects to share the depth of field and be reasonably sharp.

So, there is a compromise when you use narrow apertures -- it's up to you as to how far you go.

Check out this page showing a guitar head shot as a macro at f/22, f/8 and f/4 -- as you can see, there is quite a dramatic gain in DOF at f/22. In fact, a lot of macro shooters who struggle with this problem resort to "focus stacking" (shooting with one focus point, adjusting the point back or forward, shooting another, repeat, then combine (stack) the shots in software.

Shot with the 1D3 and 100mm f/2.8 macro:

http://www.pbase.com …g/feb_26_09_gui​tar_macros (external link)

Now, consider the next example. I was standing on a little foot bridge looking up this stream. It had two waterfalls, one way up in the hills, and it had rocks right below and slightly in front of me. I knew from experience that the closest rocks wouldn't come out "sharp" using a "normal" aperture, so f/22 it was, using the 16-35 set at 27mm. It would have been much worse at 16mm -- I owuld have had part of the bridge to deal with:)! I also had to use a polarizer, even at f/22, to get the light two stops down so I could use a slow shutter speed.

In the full shot here, if I look at the original and view it at 100%, you really can see fine detail at the uppermost falls, and below I'll show you a close crop of the rocks at the bottom edge.

Shot with the 5D, 16-35 lens, f/22



Now, looking closely at the very close crop, maybe the fine detail isn't quite as sharp as it would be at f/8, but I wouldn't hesitate to print this image large. I don't because there was an errant breeze that blew a patch of vegetation into a blur:(:



So, what do you think? Was the compromise worth it?

I REALLY appreciate your response, I've done a lot of reading here on POTN and other sites online and the more I read and the more "samples" I view -- the more confused I get :lol:

The "compromise" was totally worth it... even cropped that close the picture still looks sharp. I guess it is more of a pixel-peeping issue, and I shouldn't worry about it as much.

Thanks for the write up.

lol what did they do to that poor E30!!! I had to take a double take to even recognize it as a BMW! Very creative though!

I think they tried to make a 59 Plymouth out of it. :lol:
