Been looking at the Canon 5D after this weeks discussion thread and rattled out some test shots in RAW with my 50mm 1.8 prime attached, courstey of Jessops; The horsefair Bristol. Nice, very nice. However, first error with FF was to not mentally note the zoom change and as shot over a counter could not zoom with feet. (we all know I like those tight portrait shots) That said, a nice quick portrait shot. F2.2, 250, no flash ISO 500 (too much?) as light not great in store. Edited in Capture One and then CS2. Advice taken in that the usual things apply here with reference to good quality glass required though my £60.00 50mm prime lookds great to me, but apparently the 24 - 700 excels as would Seans prime kit. This could be my next move and seems logical given my preferred shooting style and method. Would just love top spend more time with it tbh. :shake: With reference to HCkings build, whilst its not a 1d, it is sound and seems very 'camera' like and similar in shape and feel to a ESO1 I think. Any thoughts/opinions? It seems silky smooth to me and is very film like though no expert.
