Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM

ef50lusm
Review Date: Dec 7, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,737.05 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, L glass
Cons:
Price (But if you clos your eyes it doesn't hurt as much)

VERY sharp from f1.2 to f11, however it suffers a bit at f16. (Probably due to diffraction) works very nicely on the 1DS MKii.

Price is pretty steep but i believe in getting what you paid for...


 
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM

Review Date: May 27, 2006 Recommend? no | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: fast aperture f2.8
Cons:
Not Sharp!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although being an L lens you expect the best, but when you start really looking at your photos and comparing between prime lenses and this it is completely sub-par to my expectations! even my clients can tell the difference! I will be selling mine for either the 24-105 f4L IS or the 50mm f1.4 USM and some goodies.

Review Date: Feb 4, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Long reach, fast f2.8 aperture, extremely sharp!!
Cons:
weight is a small issue but if you are anything like me (6 ft 2 & 215 pounds) its not that much of an issue ;-)

i got this lens three days ago from Gerry Gibbs Camera House in Cannington, Perth Western Australia.

previously i hired this lens off of them and i have dreamed of owning one ever since.

from back then and the last three days of constant shooting i am happy to say that the 12,100 reasons that i found to convince myself to bite the bullet was worth every one.

a very highly reccomended piece of kit.
