    Congratulations on the purchase. Now, please tell me what to look for in
    the USM vs Non-usm images. Frankly, the non-USM looks better to me. Am I
    missing something?

    Assuming that you're looking at them at full res, the usm'd ones have
    slightly sharper edges. (Look at the print on the meter body).

    Welcome to the digital world Alan.

    I would be very interested to hear how much film you end up shooting
    now that you have your new toy.

    The photos look great BTW.

    Now, about your taxes... 'tis the season...

    The setup where I shot the meter was for portraits I did on Sat (film)
    .... so just snapped on the strobes, hooked up the sync and kaboomy on
    digital ... no color/level adjustments at all, just USM. Only differnce
    was the somewhat low sync speed of the 7D (160) compared to the Max 9
    (1/250 with sync cable or 1/300 with slave. Also, I "blue" a couple as
    I had the color temp set at 2800K... at 5500+strobe: perfect).

    This crop factor thing S (at least when using the 100mm f/2.8, my
    living room, er studio, ain't deep enough for a 3/4 standing unless the
    victiom is near the wall, er, backdrop.)

    (Okay, I do have to do something more colorful now, but outside right
    now it is singulalrly ugly ... about 15 cm so far, more to come).

    Cheers,
    Alan

    "Welcome"? (I have shot bits of digital here and there, just never
    bought my own camera). But thanks!

    Toy? This is a hammer.

    Film? a dozen rolls of 120 in the freezer and about 30 of 35mm in the
    fridge. 2 35mm film bodies (1 of which cost more than the 7D...), so
    yes, there will be more film shot (As I picked up the camera, I picked
    up 5 rolls of Sensia 100).

    (I let go of a deal (500CM, 150mm f/4 and back); decided to get this
    instead... for now).

    I left some 120 to be scanned, and my weekend Sensia and some cheap
    negative film to be dev'd... my film days are not over... besides I love
    a projected slide...

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    The color and exposure are spot on. You've got perfect illumination
    too. Now I'm lusting for some studio strobes.
     

    Yeah. One of the other reasons I'm thinking of upgrading is so I can
    get the EF-S mount and the new 60mm f/2.8 USM macro to fit it.
     

    One of the things I noticed early on about digital is how well it
    handles dark objects. There's an amazing amount of shadow detail to be
    had from a dSLR.

    That was with a couple multiblitz 200 W-s. Too bright, had to shoot at
    f/8 even out of softboxes (one at f/8 the other at f/4). I'm in the
    middle of making extra difusers to cut the light more.

    I did a few with the 5600HS (Minolta flash) and the colors are the same.
    Both in pre-flash and in ADI. (Minolta ADI uses the FL from the lens
    (those lenses that support it) to calculate correct exposure).

    I've done a few impromptu still-lifes with more color and a grey card,
    it looks very good color wise.

     

    I'm still in the middle right now (yes I do see more shaddow detail in
    some shots.)

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    Thanks. I did a few quick A/S//non-AS. Yes it works. No it ain't
    perfect. It's not so easy doing compares as sometimes a non-AS handheld
    shot looks pretty good in any case (I was shooting 1/2, 1/4 sec with a
    100). I'll do something more controlled in the days to come. One of
    the photo mags say they shoot hundreds of shots in order to evaluate
    IS/VR/AS for each lens.... I'm not going that distance...

    Price? Well a freebie from Minolta would have been the best price, I
    negotiated a package: camera, 1 GB card and an adapter to run the camera
    w/o using the batteries (for uploads and/or studio). Total somewhat
    under CAD$2K (Camera was listed in the store at $1,900).

    lockup), ISO 1600. 2800K.

    Even though you'll find out things you don't like about it. But hey,

    I couldn't see any difference at all. They even have the same file size
    to the byte - 2030617 bytes, which, I think, is most likely impossible
    and suggests that they're the same files with different names.
