    LR 2.0:

    Dual Screen - Hell yes

    Finally getting ratings right - fuck yes (In 1.x if you are going through you rated pictures and select one to a rating lower/higher it zips you back to that rating zone. In 2.0 you go to the next photo in the previous rating zone just like it should)

    Clarity going into the negative - instant and easy face touch ups (I'm sure ill over use this at first)


    Going through a shoot I did today and the other thing is I am in love with is the 28-70 2.8L. I'm so happy with this lens. I can now understand the hype. Time to get L everything :o

    Half-full or Half-empty?

    L because it is awesome or because non-L is just crap.


    The real story is that most non-L is just crap. The 85mm f/1.8 is on the short list of exceptions.

    if you like the crop of EF L, wait until you try the older FD L stuff. the build quality is so much better.

    not according to chris orwig :bowdown:

    just kidding, but no i really think it can make a picture and it can also ruin a picture, but 99% of the time when I want to use it, I've already cropped my image, so it wouldn't work and I'd have to open it up in photoshop and do it there. this just makes those times much easier :coold:

    i'm loving the dual screen "loupe - live" view :bowdown:

    there is nothing wrong with vignetting...the l33t will probably argue that though.

    just like HDR, blown highlights, and extreme shadows, they all have their place in photography and if used correctly, add to the photo instead of normally taking away from.
