I really want a Canon 1V but it's like Russian roulette when buying one. Stupid custom profiles.

May I ask that which one is better? The original shot is with the pipe in the left side. Some people find the pipe distracting because it was screaming red with the lights. I took a lot saturation off from the pipe and here's the result. What do you think?

i just took some test shot with the 180mm f2.8 today
my conclusion about it is : for $230 off ebay , i got a Russian version of the Sonnar 180mm f2.8 which cost about 8-10 times less , a better aperture mechanical ( this one got a metal wheel , not a plastic wheel which i found that quite easy to be worn off ) and really good colour rendition ( although it was designed for black & white film )
test shot

i can't focus properly for crap's sake as there was some sort of bush next to my cat's face as you can see

some more pics from these old lens i currently have
Carl Zeiss Jena 135mm f3.5


Helios 44-4 58mm f2 ( the Zenit-12's kit lens )

180mm 2.8s are great lenses

I should go and shoot some more with mine but this 17-55mm 2.8 of mine is hogging the lime light lol

after try the 180mm f2.8 today i found a big problem with it
this lens is actually made for M39 SLR , so if i use an M39-M42 and a M42-EF adapter then I can't use the lens's tripod plate ( which is kinda stupid as this lens weight more than 1.5kg and i need something stronger than my hands to hold it for low-light shooting )
just wonder that if i use a M39-EF adapter , will it be possible to me to focus to infinity ? i think this one is a M39 made for SLR ( older Zenit ) , not Gorky rangefinder so it might be able to focus at infinity

On my camera I won't go above ISO 500. I probably could but I always edit my photos at 100% zoom so I feel pain when i see noise.

Haven't used my camera in a few days actually. But the nights are getting longer, so i may feel the need for an obligitory traffic long-exposure soon.

Faster AF, by virtue of an ultrasonic motor.

Me too, but what do you mean exactly? Custom profiles in the camera body? Why is that problematic?

If you want to eliminating distracting background elements in a portrait, decrease the DOF. Instead of shooting at f/5, open it up (f/3.5 for your lens, use a prime!).

Get over the noise fear. Using a DSLR means being able to use 800 ISO and up without hesitation. Otherwise, you'll have a lot of blurry shots from trying to get away with slower shutter speeds from not using high enough sensitivities. A sharp 800 ISO shot at 1/100" will look better than a blurry 1/30" shot at 400 ISO.

Also wean yourself from pixel peeping. It's unrealistic to always do that, and drives you crazy, because such details aren't noticeable at common print/display sizes anyway.
