I wish he was stateside and lived down the street from me, so after he bought $9000+ worth of gear and decided it wasn't for him, I could purchase it from him at bargain basement prices.

Also, I still dont quite call troll on the kid. I can understand being indecisive (but he's a bit more indecisive than I've ever seen).

I have a feeling that some version of that will happen. I also cannot wait for the thread asking why his shots do not look "professional" because he has pro gear.

lol, omg, you should see what he is looking at and planning on...I am just telling him yes or no to gear basically and giving him suggestions as alterantives....he still isn't convinced on anything but canon. Oh and it is so funny how he said Sigma are crap...he never even touched Sigma in his life...

lol, he could actually do that and sell for a good profit in the Philippines. Everything is 2x as much, that is the whole reason he is going to HK and is so indecisive, he wants to make sure his choice is "perfect."

And he isn't a kid actually...

I had to. A nice condition one came up used @ B&H, I had credit with them. Made.it.happen.

I'm playing nice again, but if he links digitalrev.com again I'm gonna fly to the Philippines and break his keyboard over his head sozo.gif I'm trying to get him to realize that we can give him info / comparisons on what's better, etc but not if he keeps changing his budget, etc. I kid of course, I'm not really 100% where this animosity towards digitalrev is coming from, but I'm not gonna fight it, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

Side note, I like how secure we feel about his not venturing into this thread.

Ok, back on topic. Seriously though, dude needs to chill out (he may have already, I'm willing to try harder to be patient and lend a hand if I can), accept that Sigma does make good lenses (ESPECIALLY the 30), give us his actual budget, and be willing to take advice (which I see that he is apparently trying to do in Skyping with you Sean).

Lol. You need a 135L. We can work something out.

If you shoot at or near MFD, it's very good. But that's also incredibly boring. If you need background blur, 85/135L combo wins every time.

Yea. He's getting there...slowly narrowing it down

I know XD, but i am going to get a 85 1.8 when i get a 5D, and I am going to get a 70-200 as well...and you know how much I like wide apertures. Is IS worth it? Is the blur that much different? lol
post #18838 of 29551
Sub, if I buy your 135L my wife actually would kill me.

That being said, after I sell my 50 F/1.4, well see what's going on. Maybe I'll still actually have a tax return this year..

The IS is marginally better than the non-IS, but they are both excellent zooms, and you would have to be printing pretty damn large to notice any difference between the two. Buy the IS if you need IS, et al.

35L is too amazing.
