Wait - what?

Been using this thing for a while now, not a bad little box. Much improved over the P7000/7100 and very versatile:

No Fuji x100, but at <1/3 the price - it's an economy option that is very capable.

Yep for some reason the 5D and the Canon EFS 55-250 did not slip together. I know they should have but they didn't.

Yeah, EF-S lenses are only meant for crop bodies.

Nice! I think I'm going to put in an order for the x100s... but there is no ETA for them right now. Ugh.

Yup

EF is standard 35mm fit
EF-S are optimized for Crop bodies due to the smaller Sensor and shutter assembly, a EF-S lens could get hit by the internals on a FF body. This is also why you can get stuff like the 10-22mm for a crop body, but on a FF you get a 16-35mm.

for example Sigma/Tamron make Crop lenses with EF mounts, so a Tamron 17-50mm F2.8 creates an image like so on a FF body.

DPReview has opened their gear shop. Not sure how their pricing will compare, but they include sample shots, videos, reviews, etc, which is all pretty cool. Also, you can build your gear list to lay out what you have and I guess it will do recommendations and what not..

So I just learned an invaluable lesson about post processing. I've known about this for a while now but never realized just how big a difference it makes. If you underexpose a picture and plan to bring the exposure back in post you'll add noise in the process.

I've also noticed that a lot of cameras metering systems tend to underexpose, my 6D is pretty bad about this for some reason. Anyway, what a lot of photographers have started doing is purposefully overexposing their photos by one stop and then fixing it in post if need be to avoid potentially adding noise in post.

We went and took a few photos of Krista's new Clubman before we get to work on it and I happened to bracket my shots, so I decided to test it out. The first shot was edited from what the camera thought was correctly exposed (ISO 800). It was underexposed by about half a stop according to the histo. You can see considerable noise in it despite the ISO being so low (for my camera).

Now this is the picture that I took that was purposefully overexposed by 1 stop. I had to decrease the exposure by about half a stop. Much much less noise.

Pretty crazy. I'm going to have to be much more careful with my exposures in the future.
