Consider the Carl Zeiss 50mm/1.4 if you're planning on a new 50. Believe it or not I'm posting my 50L up for sale today and buying a CZ50mm. It's smaller, way better build quality, and has far far less chromatic abberations. That's always been my one huge gripe with the 50L is the damn CA @ 1.2.

In comparison between the two you lose one stop and auto-focus, but you gain far better contrast, build quality, smaller/more compact size, and super super crisp shots.

I think for my Canon body there won't be anything other than Zeiss glass on it from now on. Believe it or not, when I was on my vacation I went to a camera store that had a Zeiss 50/1.4. I tried a few shots of my girlfriend with my 50L @ 1.4 and the Zeiss @ 1.4 for a direct comparison. 1 of my 3 shots of my gf were out of focus on my 50L due to the AF and all my manual shots were in focus on the Zeiss.

Just some food for thought Plus $1200 used vs $550 used... another benefit. So in my view I'm pocketing around $600 + getting a better lens.

I researched the Zeiss 50 1.4 and the Zeiss 50 2.0 makro before I got my 50L. No autofocus killed it for me. Plus you buy the 50L for the bokeh which is unmatched by any other 50 wide open. Some people's 50L's do have back focus issues. Mine's working perfect though, so far... I love Zeiss and would like to get some of their glass in the future. Just wish they made 1.2 and had autofocus.

I rarely if ever use autofocus, so that Zeiss sounds pretty awesome. I want to replace my 50mm with something I'm going to use for a very long time. I think the Zeiss might do that for me. Thanks for the info sysfailur.

Honestly the comparison in bokeh is extremely minor. I actually prefer the bokeh produced by the Zeiss as in my opinion it has a little more character. Trust me, the 50L was my dream lens initially and I love it but I won't be looking back.

Your parked on the highway, that's dangerous..

Turn down the shutter speed for rolling shots, try 1/100th or less to get a sense of motion. White balance seems a bit off in the first 3 shots. Unless that was part of your edit. Also not sure why your iso is as high as it is in most of the shots...? Your last shot is the only one that seems to have the correct settings for the situation/shot.

All part of the particular processing I did. I forgot to change it from when I was shooting an inside car show..Oops!

Rolling shot (as dangerous as it is) was done while I was driving and couldn't change settings easily. Will NOT do again.

Got a quick chance to use the 70-200 f/4 L today. I just wanted to see the sharpness and clarity of the lens and I'm definitely impressed. It was a rainy day and I had my CPL filter on and I had no problem with light. These shots were not set up, I literally walked out in my pajamas and snapped some quick pics in the driveway. I barely had to edit these as well. Contrast, clarity and sharpness were already there!

Can someone link me to some automotive suction cup rigs that are pretty good? I did some searching online, but I don't think I am using the right keywords.

I want to try and start getting into those rolling shots with longer exposures. Any kind of input would be appreciated .

I had the chance to light paint two of my friends cars last week. They're not Subies, but both AWD.

Thanks! It's a technique called lightpainting. If you do a search on photography lightpainting it will show you how to do it. It's pretty easy if you have all the tools. For these shots, I used my Canon 5D w/ 24-70L, a tripod, a 15w fluorescent work light, and about 5-8 long exposures stacked on top of each other to achieve this look.

I shot two E46 M3's after the BMWCCA event this past weekend (Orange one is my Dad's, silver one is our friend's). I have some more on-track shots, but I haven't edited/uploaded them.

Shot with a Canon T3i, 50mm f/1.4 (stills) and 70-200mm f/2.8L (for on track shots).
All natural light.

A friend of mine (whose lenses I've borrowed) shot this one of me in my car at the BMWCCA HPDE where the rest of the pictures were taken. Thanks Michael!
