April 20, have been testing my Canon 300 L vs a Canon 100-400 L ( version I ) . Maybe I’ll post some test shots, but long story short… the 300 L is the better lens, hands down. To make things more fair I want to buy a TC like a Canon Extender EF 1.4X III. That would make my 300 L about 420mm on my Canon 5D full frame camera. Of course then I wont be able to get f4. Maybe then things will even out. More about this later.

This is my blog, not a portfolio. Just me taking shots everyday and put almost no effort in them. Write about the cameras and lenses I use, and write about pros and cons about my gear.

 

Also a tought…. what about the wonderful Canon 70-200mm L IS II. And a Canon Extender EF 2X III. That should be like a 400mm f6,3 on full frame ?  Want to try out that combo too. Dont know if the 2x converter will work properly with the 70-200 2.8 L IS II. But well worth a try. It’s the AF that’s worry me.

The Canon 300mm L f2.8 IS version II + the Canon Extender EF 2X III is of course another possibility to get more reach.

Here is pictures of Canon’s Tele Converters, they are mounted between lens and camera body. You gain focal length and loose light, to explain it simple.

April 5, one of my all time favourite pocket cameras is the Canon S95. Not a perfect camera in any way. But it’s very very small, easy to use and has a pretty sharp lens with 28mm to 105mm ( i think ) zoom capability. Also use it some for video. It’s a rough camera you always can trust. Always works and have never had any problems with the S95’s. Like that little camera a lot.736-2016-Ulf-Greger

I have bought a S95 three times. All given away as gifts to family members and friends that wanted to have something better than a mobile phone camera, and learn more. After returning the Fujifilm X70 i have borrowed a S95 again to use as street camera until I buy something better again.

I have to work some with the Canon S95 jpg’s. Poor ISO performance and small sensor makes the jpg’s a little grainy. But for street that does not bother me much. In black and white I think it looks pretty good. I dont use RAW with my pocket cameras. Only my DSLR’s. Another bonus is very small jpg files. Just about 1,5MB each, so a cheap 16GB SD card last forever on that thing.  Edited in PS they are just 160kb each.

Here is a couple of shots done with the Canon S95 last days :

April 3, have returned the Fujifilm X70 and are using my Canon 5D with a 35mm as walkaround camera. Sometimes I have the ‘new’ 300mm L lens with me. Seagulls shot with the 300.
also use my Pentax ME Super, analog film camera with ILFORD Delta 100 black & white film.

This is my photoblog, random everyday shots. Not a portfolio. Just sharing some pictures I take. So far this month I have used a borrowed Canon S95 compact camera and my Canon 5D mk III with Zeiss Distagon 35mm f/2.

All in 35mm and Black & White this month. Using both my Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 35/2,0 ZE and the Sigma 35 1.4 Art.  So far I think the Zeiss gives better image quality. The Sigma’s AF is sometimes a very good thing to have – so will use this lens a lot now to see if it is a keeper for me or if it ends up for sale.

ulf-greger-Sigma-35-mm-1.4-Art--Canon-5D-2013-april-0008Bad panning attempt. Sigma 35 1.4 Art. I failed, not the lens 🙂

Still want an Carl Zeiss Makro Planar 100 – so should get rid of one of the 35’s. This is not a Sigma VS Carl Zeiss test. They are too different since the Zeiss Distagon 35 dont have autofocus and is f2 max and the Sigma is f1.4 wide open. ( Both are f16 minimum) So this is just a small comparison of the two lenses. I like 35mm on fullframe but dont want to own two of them. I had the Canon 35 L but sold it because the Carl Zeiss 35’s image quality outperformed it.
