    Walked over to my neighbors to show him my new toy and he ended up showing me his new toy. He's got the Supra completely torn apart, but he'll have it back together in three weeks or so. I'm gonna shoot some (hopefully) killer shots of his car once it's up and running again.

    Anyway....the 16-35mm f/2.8 L glass is awesome! I've got to get used to the focusing on the 5D and shoot some real tests later.


    16mm. Yes I know the highlights are blown out.

    35mm

    the camera handles the exposure range quite nicely.

    16-35 is by far one of the sharpest lenses I've used to date . Great combo .

    is that the 16-35 f/2.8 II, or the mark I version?

    Oh, and speaking of which....I was just shooting a few test shots, wide open and stopped all the way down and found what appears to be some nasty dust spots on my sensor. I gotta pick up a air blower to clean it out.

    These are the shots in question.

    The first shot was at f/22

    wide open at f/2.8

    found some more. two different lenses, same dust spots. They really show up at f/22 and are invisible wide open.

    70-200

    50mm

    and finally, just playing with the 70-200 with the IS turned on. Hand held at 1/4 sec. I know it's not the sharpest image but I've never been able to hand hold a telephoto lens at anything less than 1/125 sec before! :noes:

    used with about 5000 clicks. if I was smart I'd send it to Canon for cleaning.

    I tried to buy one Saturday but my local photo shop was out of stock. I'll go ahead and buy one from B&H. Thanks for the link. :bigthumb:

    I keep a little version in my camera bag too, for blowing fluff off my lenses while I'm out. :wiggle:

    Is it that easy to clean yourself? I remember having to send in my old AE-1 and pay like $100 to get it cleaned.

    I used my wife's turkey baster to blow out as much as I could of the dust but there's still one really bad spot. I may need to use sensor wipes to clean it. I'll stop by my local pro photo supply house tomorrow and see if they'll clean it for me.

    Was it strange letting the body do the focusing?

    Actually its the lens that does the focusing but yeah. I've got to get use to having a machine try to second guess me. I'm still working my way around the camera, trying to remember how to adjust the focus spots without having to take my eye off the viewfinder.

    :mamoru: I just used one of the snot sucker things for newborns that we never had to use on my son last week to blow out a couple of spots of dust on my sensor.

    Considering you just got it, I can see why you'd be apprehensive. :o
