I don't mind not having the liveview, never used it anyway even on bodies that had it
(or, apparently, the pop up flash, eh mguffin?? lol)
Last night I was in the orchard behind my house and was snapping pics of the lines of trees in bloom
the LCD was not much good at all and then I plugged the camera into the laptop and....wow....this is why I have this camera.

ugh...we've got a major lightning storm headed our way which means I'll have to unplug my wireless. For some reason, either the outside box or the buried cable or the house has the tendency to get zapped and then it fries the motherboard in the outside client box thingy if I don't unplug the cable that goes out to it.
If anyone has an insight into how to remedy this, please post it...it kinda bites that I can't be online during a thunderstorm....in the midwest....in the spring....which is most of the time. And Im off work today, yay.
The company I get wireless from has no idea why this happens...helpful, right? :rolleyes:

Just thought I'd share some breakfast. 90 TS-E @f/11, full tilt down, for those that would like to know.
Sandwich is lightly toasted challah, ham, eggs and provolone, for those that would like to know ;)

that coffee looks amazing
There needs to be a farm fresh brown egg in that egg cup!

I have a few bucks to spend on a lens (happy anniversary to me!) Ive got a 50/1.8
but Id like something with a better build quality. The 50/1.4 has AF failure problems and that concerns me. Knowing me, Id drop $$ on one and it would fail the day after the warranty ran out.
Cuz thats how I roll.
Im considering just saving up for the 24-70, but Ive never used one and I really like primes.
See my dilemma?
Im whiny this morning, aren't I?

i think the internet tends to overstate problems. i owned the 50mm f/1.4 for roughly three years without a single problem, and i've known others who have used it for much longer than that. buy what you want, and use it for what it is and i'm sure you'll be just fine. =)

NO WAI! ;)

I posted a few pages ago in response to someone about this -- for every person coming onto this board to complain of a lens failure, there are hundreds/thousands of people who don't have a problem.

you are all right
I had a 50/1.4 at one point, when I owned my XSi
and dummy me sold it when I got two zooms that both had 50mm in their FL
it was perfect and I am an idget.

I'll probably order another one
thanks my fellow enablers, I'll return the favor some day

Yes, challah with forbidden meat and cheese - wrong, but it tasted so right!

If you want better build quality you could get the Sigma 1.4, oh, but that has a reputation for focusing issues, or the 50L, oh no, that supposedly has focusing issues too. :D Just get the 50 1.4 if that's what you want, I'm sure like was previously said, these things get way overblown and you'd have no problems at all. There seem to be a lot of happy 50 1.4 owners on that thread.

When I bought my 50 1.8 it was $69 new, now it's selling for like $135? Nearly double... but that was a long time ago...

I don't recall how much I paid for the 1.4.

Can't go wrong with either the Canon 50 1.4 or the Sigma 50 1.4...but, focussing issues aside, IMHO, the Sigma is built better and has VASTLY smoother bokeh (very subjective of course).
