  • I've seen several issues with Sigmas in the past, but this is my first experience with a Tamron not working on a newer body. Focus peaking is a great help, but i had rather seen AF working fine.
  • Am I the only one that has problems with focus shift on the 24-105 STM ??
  • Got my Tamron back from repair today (lens had fungus). The lens works perfect on my 6D and 70D, but won't AF on the M3 ! The camera keeps saying MF, regardless of AF switch at AF or MF. This ...
  • Created questions 24-105 STM focus shift
    Hi, I've been using the STM version of the 24-105 for a while now. Stopped down a bit it is able to keep up with the L (which I own also) quite well. Focus and zoom are smoother than with the L ...
  • Created discussions Samyang 12mm 2.8 impressions
    Hi, I went to a camera store near where I live to buy some small stuff. AsI knew they have the Samyang 12mm 2.8 in stock I asked if I could try this small lens on my 6D. Took a few test pics and ...
  • I have heard very little about decentered EF-M lenses, but I have one myself : the EF-M 18-55. Sharp at the right at 18mm, mediocre at the left and at 55mm it's the other way around, only less ...
  • Ignore samples at Lenstip, better look at the measured values, like the resolution ones at page 4. They test center and edge performance, many times for aps and FF. This time they even compared the ...
  • I noticed this once or twice also. It looks like it has something to do with the moment the lens is taken off the camera or shutting down the camera after IS activation. Put back the lens, switch ...
  • Hi, I replied to your question. Let's try again. The Tamron is the better lens IMO, in the IQ department as well regarding to build. The Canon is somewhat better (sharper) in the lower FL range, ...
  • Well, the 100-400 II beats the 70-300L  at almost any FL, just not at 100mm. Wide open the mkII is better, but stopped down a bit the -300 is better. Difference is small though. Anything beyond, ...
  • My opinion also. The Tamron isn't bad, but no real competition for the 70-300L. The 70-200 f4 L IS  and 70-300L are very close. The -300 being sharper at the short end, the -200 slightly sharper at ...
  • I only have some boring plane pics in my gallery, but this one is taken with the 55-250 STM, at 250mm almost wide open, which I think is not bad for such a cheap lens : Air France A318
  • I find the 55-250 STM to be overall better than the 70-300 non-L. You'll loose 50mm at the long end, but that 50mm is also not the best part of the 70-300 (edge sharpness not impressive, fairly ...
  • I stopped using filters on my telezooms few years ago. Their lens hoods are large enough to protect the front lens. But after noticing a tiny sctratch on my 100-400 II (don't know if it was there ...
  • My dad had a bad 55-250mm, sent it two times to a Canon repair center to check, with no results. Yeah, they replaced the IS unit, did some check-ups, but IQ remained bad. In the end I asked Canon ...
  • Maybe you should consider them.  The 150-600's AF works with any camera body and IQ will not be much worse than that of a 400mm + TC I suppose ( f5.6 + TC = f8 wide open = stopped down for the ...
  • Maybe if price is right. I have the M next to a 70D and 6D and really love that camera, especcially together with the 22 and 11-22. The new M3 adresses my main complaints about the original M : ...
  • Rather see multiple M's. Firstly an updated M2 with faster AF, updated sensor, smaller (thus more precise) AF fields and better video. Also add a small grip to it for better handholding and a built ...
  • I had a similar problem with my f4 L IS. Happened during a day shooting. Canon replaced the entire AF unit to solve it. I was told the unit had come loose. Cost me about € 250 :-( Regards, Sandor.
  • If you don't like your Tamron, than I don't think any other supersoon will make you happy either. Looking for better IQ ? Get multiple lenses for the range, like the 18-55 STM + 55-250 STM. It ...
