Money burning a hole in your pocket, Slippy. First the 5D and now the lens.

Did you finally collect all your pimp dues this month?

It's not money I have, unfortunately, especially with tax time in a week. But I'm justifying it by telling myself that the amount I'm spending on the camera and lens is the same as what I made on a photo taken with my old crop-sensor camera and wide angle crop-sensor lens, so it's a wash.

My pimp dues help pay for my morning coffee.

Imagine how great this shot would have been if you had full frame!! Did this slice of turkey jerky turn out ok in the dehydrator?

All I need now is a wide-angle/Fish-Eye lens, which I was just a bit too late to grab from ace flyman, doh!


The Sigma 12-24 is the widest rectilinear lens going. Mine's great

12mm is even more UWA. My motto is, turn the volume up to 11.

I'm meeting the guy with the lens tomorrow and testing it out so he can empty my pocket of cash.

on a full frame the 17-40L is UWA.

I've been contemplating selling my 15mm fisheye if you or anyone else is interested

Hey, you totally edited your reply while I was replying!

He's sneaky that way.

Up to no good!

I agree, it was well crafted, and would have been a loss not to see it!

Yup, getting a better camera is always the answer.

You're not imagining it. It's true.

Is the difference that big? Figured it was mostly FoV that differed between crop and FF.

Well, if misery wants some company, I tried cleaning my sensor using the scotch tape method (you know, to get rid of the really stubborn spots). Got rid of the sensor dust... along with a lot of the coating on the filter. I guess I won't be using that method again in the future.

OMG! I don't know whether to laugh or cry. :-( That sucks! Maybe you need to bring it to a shop for cleanings from here on in.

How the bloody hell did you do that? Haven't actually heard of anyone having this happen to them before! Really sorry to hear it too, that sucks!

I don't know Nikons, but in a Canon the only way I can think of is if the battery runs out, or you spazz out and turn off the power. 8-O

Awesome dude, I just went full frame too - everything you said +1 I love the detail and the high ISO performance is crazy. Still shooting with the DX for the next couple weeks, I already broke something in the new full frame (sensor cleaning, I closed the shutter on a swab... sigh...) can't wait to get it back though!

Thanks Cory, I'm going to have to do some research on a what to get for wide angle. I think I'd prefer to buy used. I think my Sigma 10-20 might fit but have vignetting problems as it's a crop sensor lens, I may even try selling it if I get a proper EF lens for the 5D.



sell it and buy a used 17-40L, out of pocket cost will be about $300. bonus is the range is a decent walk around on a crop.
