and I never noticed that different stylesheets reproduced images at different sizes before. didn't realize how large you guys were posting images. get ready for 1024 pixels wide from here on out folks.

Damn, I didn't know that. I've been linking to the 640px versions of my Flickr pix. I'll move up now...

i think old.css still crops to like 1200 or something, but its more generous than any other stylesheet

the rest is split between snaps of my gf and airplane window shots

Millsner, Friday, 3 May 2013 01:18 (five years ago) Permalink

I did have some cat photos but none had the feel of that shot and I was wondering whether I was being a bit overliteral in my selections (like "I've been there!" "I have one of those!").

What a terrific sequence! I knew we wouldn't be stuck on my solo dancer + Elvis's dad shot for long...

Apols for the HTML screw-up; forgot that, although Flickr offers code for a 640px version of a very old scan, it doesn't actually exist until you "create" it by going through All Sizes (it pre-dates Flickr routinely creating that size for new uploads by several years). Only 500px is available for very old pix.

Testing...

Ah, no, even that doesn't work.

Memo to self: don't select 640px for old pics.

You'd recommend in then MaresNest? I was thinking of the 50mm 1.4, how do they compare?

I have the thifty and am considering upgrading to the 1.4 at the end of the year. I can't truthfully say which is better, these threads may help?

I've seen a few comments about the 85 along the lines of 'Best EF lens in the range, almost as good as an L' etc

*tsk* thrifty

MaresNest, Saturday, 25 May 2013 09:22 (five years ago) Permalink

have just the 1.4 but i never use it wider than f2. i'm moving towards a 35 & 85 or 35 & 100 pair which i feel will cover a better range than 50 & something.

micah, Sunday, 26 May 2013 11:27 (five years ago) Permalink

i've owned a few 1.4 lenses and even a 1.2 lens at one point but i never used them at 1.4; i think they're good if you fetishize bokeh or you really do find yourself shooting in low light situations a lot. often times the optics are /worse/ than a 1.8 or 2.0 lens since wide aperture lenses require compromises in the lens design.

乒乓, Sunday, 26 May 2013 11:42 (five years ago) Permalink

like i think the 50 1.8 outperforms the 1.4 and the 1.2 throughout 2-4 or 2-5.6, though it evens out by the time you get to smaller apertures? could be wrong

乒乓, Sunday, 26 May 2013 11:43 (five years ago) Permalink

Yeah, the 50/1.8 is really good and it's hard to justify the extra cost of the 1.4 beyond build and silent focusing. I don't think there's much difference in image quality.

85/1.8 gets rave notices. I've borrowed the 100/2.0 before and that's marvellously sharp. The non-L primes are the best value Canons, I think. I love my 28/1.8 but I've always used it on a crop-sensor, so it's basically a normal lens. It would be a very different thing on a FF.
