Not bad at all 70D & 135mm kit lens
3 months ago

Hi Guys,

After many thoughts what to think of the Canon 70D I got a chance on my last Safari holiday in Borneo to compare it with other cameras in similar conditions. We had people using the Mark II and III, Nikon and with far better glas like the 70-200mm on the Mark II but nothing came close to the 70D in the night conditions. No argument in normal daylight the FF were showing of but not that much better if at all.

I was long thinking if I shal keep it after the holiday and its a yes now. If you after a good travel combination and don't want to carry lots of glas the combination 70D & 135mm is hard to beat.

Please feel free to have a look through my flicker galerie

All basic PP shot in JPEG, I know there is some noise in the night shots but others got nothing at all
