Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L USM

ef24mmf_14l_1_
Review Date: Jul 6, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $800.00 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Sharp enough wide open, great when you stop down
Cons:
None

Bought mine second hand for a good price.
Was a bit nervous of some of the comment regarding this not being the sharpest tool in canon's arsenal.
But I'm really very happy with mine, wide open it is acceptable, stopped down a couple of stops it is great.


 
Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II

Pros: Handling, Film like Picture Quality.
Cons:
None.

I have had about 6 months use of this camera.
First one was returned for poor focussing, second one had the same problem but I got it recalibrated instead (Bad Quality Control Canon).

But after the initial teething problems it is everything it was supposed to be.

As a long time 1 body user the handling is wonderfully familiar to me.

I can see me sticking with this for a number of years. Canon will have to come up with something pretty special to get me to upgrade.

Now I can shoot tetherd with C1 I have everything I need.
