    No lens data? 1/100th, f/11, ISO 100, 100mm

    I just checked two of the canon/LaForet images and they did not have lens type either... pre-production units, perhaps this is one of the final things for canon to address.

    they said it was a Canon 100 f/2.8 macro. Exciting, because that's already in my bag.

    Well it is more of a lens review than I was expecting, but since it is the 24-105 IS L that many will pair with their 5DmII's I still ate it up! Interesting that he kinda pitches the 40D's features over his old 5D.

    BTW - The link to Z-ray lighting seems interesting... Thanks for the news bit.

    Hey no problem. I have been following his blog since I saw him on photoshopusertv.com about a month ago and I just realized last weekend that he was from good old Cincinnati, just like me. I'm going to take his spring workshop. The Z-ray is pretty cool isn't it. I went to Target last night for something else and happened to find one of those lights he uses there so I bought it. Only $20 at Target!

    ... I am so, so jealous. I think that's the sharpest thing I've seen - well, ever. You can even see mascara flecks, haha.

    Now, I'm still new to the photography game, so I have to ask: how do they get that so sharp? What is it about that lens and body combination (or individual components) makes it that hot?

    nope! I think I paid about $450 for the lens brand new :) It is really a very sharp lens.

    Most of the Canon prime lenses are sharper than a L series zoom lens of a similar focal length. The 100mm f/2.8 Macro is regarded as the sharpest lens currently produced by Canon.
