Review Date: Jun 8, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9

Canon 5D II
Nice piece of equipment... I would even like to by another body !

But, I am really pissed because nobody told nothing about
problems with PS CS3, which CAN NOT read and preview files and thumbs
from 5D II RAW Files!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Adobe Update? Done!

Nothing... Dude, Go and by new PS CS4 for Mac and spend more $$$

I Don't know for any post on Fred Miranda Forum that mention this problem .

If my comp. skills are weak, and PS CS3 for Mac reads & might preview
5DII RAW files, please ignore my post.

Regards to All

It would be nice to implement;
All 45 selectable points like Canon 1VHS implements

H Iso could be better but not necessary

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM

16-35II
Review Date: Mar 2, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,000.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp Wide Angle lens, fast lens-f/2.8, very useable for weddings, interiors, architecture, fun for close ups...
Cons:
none

This is so far my best wide angle lens... I have owned 17-40 f4 L but 16-35 f2,8 L II is another space. by the way, It so much better even from original 16-35.
It's sharp wide open and it very well built. Zoom ring is very smooth. Personally I could Zoom the ring in/out the whole day Smile
UV filter 82 is a "MUST" because of full sealed feature!

I strongly RECOMMEND it, specially in a Kit with 135 f2 L or 70-200 f2,8 L IS

Personal view:

Since I already have 15 fish & 24-70f/2,8 L from "wide crew" I didn't realize how much I missed 16-35 all these time.
So now I am very pleased I bought it because It closed the hole space in "wide angle crew" Smile

The 16-35 II already paid it self after one job so I anxiously wait new 24 f/1,4 II to join "low light crew" consisting of 50f/1,4 & 85 f1,2 L II

Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM

Review Date: Jan 26, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: The master of diffusion and three dimension image maker
Cons:
Slow Focus? Front element!

85 f/1,2 L II is simply the best portrait lens in my opinion.

It let me close inough to a model for good communication and again it let Your model inough relaxed to get nature sight.
At 1,2 the lens is sharp, and bokeh is so cream and dreamlike...

My best by ever...

(I' am not under any forum influence nor do I' ve owned cheap lenses before so I couldn't be "stoned" by image quality of new lens)

Strongly recomended for portraits, weddings...

Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM

Review Date: Jan 25, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, fast focus, fast aperture, compact, solid, nice combo with 1V HS and 5D
Cons:
Very nice lens if You already don't have 85 f/1,2 L II and 70-200 f2,8 L IS

In my personal opinion,
This is very nice lens performer, specialy in terms of sharpness and background diffusion.

Since I use my 85 f1,2 L II a lot and my 70-200 f2,8 L IS
I was hard to impress by new lens.

I must confess, I relied on hype and headlines of this forum community.
A must have, the beast, superb... These words are often told when someone mention Canon 135 f/2 L

Lets be realistic, It's a very nice and cheap lens (ONLY in US:(
if You're upgrading from a less quality consumer lenses. Then You will probably be frozen by image quality but, I strongly recomend it if You already don't have a super lens like 70-200/f2,8 L IS

So if You already Have 85 L and 70-200 L in my personal opinion, 135 L is very expensive one step wider, lighter and just a little bit sharper non zoom walk around lens.
