it came yesterday . . . do you guys know of a way to turn the flash off in one of the shooting modes?
:clarify: in landscape or portrait is the flash only automatic?
yes it's automatic. dont use those 'preset' settings. they dont let you realyl change anything. shoot in MANUAL mode or Tv or Av.
On snap. 135L.
Thanks thats what I figured
great lens. I never bought it because I have the 100 macro and they are too similar in focal length & speed.
I'll probably have 75 hours this week, its friday night and I'm just about to go out... somehow I just don't feel the need to use/test the lens.
However, when I get the chance I'll post some portraits or whatever I take with it. I took a shot of a butt-ugly coworker today and its quite sharp. It's on my work computer though (and I think i deleted it there anyhow, since the sharpness and clarity in her eyes rather disgusted me.
Seriously, just shoot M exclusively... it's not hard to learn, and the more you learn about metering the better. Start with evaluative then move to center weighted then spot metering.
Try metering whites about 1 1/3 to 1 2/3 stops to the right.
You'll get it, and then you can nail any scene the first time, whereas with some other modes you may not be able to capture some scenes no matter what.
in the green mode, (full automatic) it automatically comes up.
it is for me. not enough differences to justify the $.
Better color, contrast, saturation, background blur, not to mention gay pink ring. The 100 macro wins in the sharpness dept.
oh, and the extra stop.
yeh, but im broke and I do more macro than portraits.
