  • 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 ...
  • The STM version is smaller, cheaper and lighter, but I'm not quite convinced it is sharper than the L. So far I've not seen any picture made with the STM that is better than ones taken with the ...
  • Replied in 10-22
    Jitteringjr perfectly 'translated' what I wanted to say, but in a much better way. I think I misinterpreted the word mediocre (English is not my native language), so I was being unintendly rude to ...
  • Replied in 10-22
    My apologies then. I've seen higher resolution pictures with more clear skies. Also the left side does not seem perfectly sharp to me. Maybe it is because of  the fact that it is compressed. As ...
  • Replied in 10-22
    I'm not impressed by the 10-22 picture (scene is nice, but picture quality is mediocre) and the 11-22 picture is of cell phone quality IMO (too small, not sharp and what happened to the horizon ?). ...
  • In my experience the Tamron is not the best wide zoom. Wide open this lens performs quite bad, but when stopped down to around f8 thing improve a lot. Build and AF are so-so too. There is ...
  • Replied in Carefull...
    BTW, OP have fun with your X, my favorite ML system.
  • Replied in Carefull...
    That is something not only to be seen in the Canon forum. Try to say something bad in the Nikon or Sony forums for instance and you will be flamed as well. Don't always understand why. What I see ...
  • If you can live with the limitation of the M, yes this is a good option too. I think the 11-22 outperforms the other three. M + 11-22 is still cheaper than the 10-22 and about the same as the ...
  • Had the 10-18 STM for a short while. Decent IQ, but nothing special. IS not that interesting at those FL IMO. Price is great for what it does. The STM works very well and silent. Small and light, ...
  • Created discussions 400mm DO II tested
    Hi, Ephotozine has tested the new 400mm DO lens. Image quality seems excellent. Regards, Sandor.
