    What's the secret of Leica? ...and else.

    The Planar 100/2 is a freaking gem. Just unreal. Sold mine for $1150 and the hood and step ring for another $140. I just couldn't afford to keep a lens that pricey for more than the few months I had it. Gotta finish the edumacashun. :lol:

    What's the secret of Leica? ...and else.

    There is no point in arguing about the topic. The Zeiss lenses render the OOF areas in a way that I've never seen from Canon, even in their finest lenses. Use all the jargon you'd like, from what I've read it comes down to microcontrast that Canon can't quite handle. And yes, the Contax lenses...

    What's the secret of Leica? ...and else.

    Got lost in the vat of bullshit that is this thread...forgive me if my post is on topic per the original post... I've used some of Canon's finest lenses, including the 17-40L, 35L, 50L, 85L, 135L, etc (not at the same time, mind you...Money doesn't grow on trees). I don't own a single one of...

    HDR pics here

    Here are some of mine. I'd like to get back to using HDR to enhance some shots next summer. I haven't used it in awhile. Some of these are old, and could really use some dodge and burn to eliminate halos. My PS skills have gotten much better in the past few months. My all-time favorite HDR that...

    That's gay. :shakefist: Consider them spread out over the last 4 days since I haven't been posting. They are all from a Canon 5D, so yea, full-frame. The Contax gets to f/1.7 and the 135L to f/2, so they get pretty thin. It's a great way to single out the car in a crappy environment. The...

    Canon 7D

    Not with the 50 1.2 already there... It would be cool to have something around there with a floating element though.

    He might have been...:P I was testing my new rig in a parking garage and snapped a few of that car. It was nice, but not entirely my style. I don't mind the lowering, but the rear is down too far.

    Cars and Coffee Irvine Rolling Shots (09/19/09) [No 56k]

    Yet you still posted 800 pictures from the same angle. No offense, but I can google to see what a GTR looks like. Why not throw up a few of your best with proper sizing instead of the whole day?

    Check out the eyes on these things... I had one on my sidewalk 3-4 days ago and took these. First two are 135L with a 12mm tube. Last two are an old Vivitar Series 1 70-210. Bokeh is weird on that thing. 1 2 3 4

    Looking for a first DSLR

    For $1000 I would be looking at getting a used setup. I started with an XTi, and the 40D I moved to after awhile crushed it in every aspect. Just based off of used prices from my head, a used 40D runs about $650. Below is a quick list of a few lenses to look at, depending on what you want to...
