  • Hi, Wonderfull pictures of great scenes. I also like the output files, so may I ask what was the workflow to come to these ? Sandor.
  • Replied in In 1987 ...
    ... Canon was the only manufacturer that came with AF camera and lenses that had no mechanical transmission between camera and lens. This technology won it for me, so went from Oly to Canon in ...
  • I suppose you have the L-version of the 70-300 ? Well, I own and use both the 70-300L and 100-400 II. The 70-300 is sharper in the lowest focal range they share, wide open and stopped down. ...
  • Replied in And returned ...
    First impressions were promising. Furter testing though turned out less good. The Canon was sharper stpooed down and, worse, focal plain was shifting back when stopping down. In camera MFA did ...
  • Replied in Made the step
    Hi, Decided to get the Sigma after trying it in store. First impressions are that the edges are sharper wide open than with the Canon, which is what I was looking for. Wide open at 105mm is a bit ...
  • I bought the STM out of curiosity and with the idea of using it for video. The latter never happened, rather use my wifes videocam instead. The STM is a nice lens to use, is lightweight, zooms ...
  • In The Netherlands, where I live, the Sigma is also a bit cheaper than the white box Canon. And at the moment one of the shops I buy my photo gear has an action. I can buy the Sigma without having ...
  • The 16-35mm f4 is on my list for a while, but I do not use below 24mm too often. But when I want to I can pick my M3 + 11-22, which I've bought to take with me on mountain hiking. For extreme ...
  • Thanks KRRacing for your input and pictures. What I look for is an all-round standard zoom, rather a 24-105 than a 24-70, that is why I look at the Sigma. It needs to perform reasonable wide open ...
  • Good suggestion. The thing is that my bro is looking for something below his 70-300L. I'd like to offer him my 24-105 and get something else instead. I see an excuse to try something new :-) The ...
  • Created question thread 24-105L to OS ?
    Hi, Anyone here went from 24-105L to a Sigma 24-105 OS ? I think about passing my 24-105L through to my bro and pick up a Sigma instead. My L is sharp wide open in the center at any FL, but corners ...
  • It does fit as far as I know, as long as you use it at 300mm, but rather not zoom back then .... Not recommended hence it can cause damage  ....
  • Only some brief shooting with a Kenko TC. Can't really remember how that was, sorry.
  • Well, read my post in case you want to use a third party TC ....
  • Hi, I own and use both. No experience with a TC on the 70-300L, but I'm convinced the 100-400 II will easily outperform a 70-300+TC since its IQ is as least as good at 400 as the 70-300 at ...
  • Tnx HaroldC3, was looking for such a tool. Seems to work fine. Sandor.
  • I tried to sand off the coating on the outside by using a third party tripod mount ring, and I succeeded in that. Some of the white coating missing now. Definitely my own mistake. For anything ...
  • That combo will focus. The 2x TC will add 2 stops, f2.8 +2 stops = f5.6 = no problem. Sandor.
  • Replied in Hmmm?
    +1 for Rogers post. I've had both the 7D (sold) and 70D (present) and do not feel the 70D being a downgrade over the 7D, in fact I believe the 70D is the overall better camera. The 70D has proven ...
  • Some nice pics PK. It seems you used the 11-22 and 22mm,  but what did you use for longer FL ? Regards, Sandor.
