关于器材 II

感谢光熙同学给我的非常敬业的回复,我也学到不少东西。

总结一下:(括号里是我添的comments和在B&H查到的价格)

1. 人像摄影的镜头

canon 50 mm f1.8 (~$75)是 50 mm f1.4 (~$290)价格的1/N,性能也不差太多,如果不是完美主义而且想省钱,前者是不错的选择。

另外也可以考虑 85 mm f1.8 (~$340),锐度有时比50mm还好,背景的虚化也很漂亮。缺点是焦距长拍摄人像的话需要站得较远,在室内不是很方便。

 

2. 和佳能配套微距镜头无非canon 100 mm f2.8 或者 Tamron 90 mm f2.8 (价格差不多,都在~$470,如果是我自己,微距倒不着急最先买)

 

3. 能用在佳能机器上的变焦镜头除了套镜,还有四种不错的选择:

Canon 17-85IS (~$500)

Sigma 17-70/2.8-4.5(~$390)

Tamron 17-50/2.8 (~$450)

Canon 17-40/4L (~$670)

镜头这个东西反正是一分钱一分货,贵和便宜都有自己的理由。

 

4. 友情提醒,(因为canon EOS 350D是2005年初推出的EOS 300 D的替代产品),可能9月份佳能会推出新的350D的替代品,可以关注。

 

光熙同学的原文:


 
Hi Fei,

Regarding your friend’s questions, it really depends on whether he wants to take portrait shots mostly indoors or outdoors.  For a similar price, 85/1.8 is a better portrait lens with nicer bokeh and supposedly sharper wide open, but could be a tad bit too long indoors on an APS size camera.  If he is tight on budget, maybe 50/1.8 is also a reasonable choice for indoor use. Optically it’s quite similar to 50/1.4, but only 20% in price.

There aren’t many choices for macro lens other than Canon 100/2.8 (or Tamron 90/2.8, not much cheaper though).  It’s just not realistic to have macro performance similar to a small DC on a DSLR without a macro lens (or extension tubes and close-up filters, but not as convenient).

He may want to buy the kit, if he is planning to shoot landscape at all or
to have a general travel lens.  Other good alternatives to the kit lens are
Canon 17-85IS, Sigma 17-70/2.8-4.5, Tamron 17-50/2.8 and Canon 17-40/4L, all four in the range of 350-600 dollars.  The first three are crop frame lenses, while the last one is full frame.  I am thinking of buying the new Tamron one myself.  Sigma 18-125 or Tamron 18-200 are also worth
considering, if he prefers to have an all-in-one lens, not my type though.
The kit lens is optically reasonable, but you pay for what you get.

A few good website with reviews and forums for Canon gears:
http://www.photozone.de/8Reviews/index.html
http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/board/2
There is also the good old dpreview.com for camera body reviews, but their forum is filled with rich bastards who have little interest in photography besides buying gears.  Photo.net is a great site for serious photography. Xitek.com is probably one of the most populated Chinese sites.

Finally, a friendly reminder, Canon is most likely going to have a
replacement body for 350D out this fall around September, maybe 370D/400D? In addition if your friend is a guy, I would suggest him try a 350d in shop first, because the grip is too small sometimes for a male to hold comfortably.

  4. Wen说道:

    菲,有个问题,如果我暂时只拍摄人像不考虑其他,想配定焦头的话,配一只还是两只?如果要两只,而50mm/1.8的是其中之一的话,另一个配什么比较好呢?另外拍摄人像时全身和半身在镜头选择上是不是有不同?
