Just got an XSi and jumping in!

  • If I could travel to an arbitrary city with only 2 lenses, they would be the 16-35 f/4L IS and the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II. I usually pack a few other lenses too, just in case.  Truth be told though, ...
  • sweet! Are those at Teotihuacan near Mexico City? They mostly look like it but I'm not totally sure.
  • Created discussions 5D3 power switch a bit warped
    Not sure how this happened (don't remember it being dropped or bumped recently) but I just noticed that my 5D3's power switch is rotated about 45 degrees such that one of the edges is "up", if ...
  • Replied in Not really
    For some specialty artistic reasons, perhaps, but it's pretty clear that this poster would be better served with the f/4. He could get the f/2.8 if he wants, and maybe he'd shoot it wide open ...
  • Not only do you not "need" the 2.8, you don't *want* the 2.8. For your landscape photography which should all be in sharp focus, you'll want to use f/4 or smaller aperture anyway. The *only* reason ...
  • I agree with this, especially if you want to use the tilt-shift 24 and/or 17 lenses as they were intended. They are great for landscape/architecture. You need an FF sensor for that. There is some ...
  • Great shots! I have the Canon version (so no chip). Like it but don't often have a chance to use it. :(
  • Probably they're beginning to realize that their lenses are overpriced compared to the likes of Sigma, and that "the Zeiss feel" or whatever isn't perceived to be worth as much as it used to be. ...
  • Replied in bump
    Yeah.  If I sell the Zeiss, it's a little depressing how much I'd get for it.  I paid like $1283 IIRC, and the used on eBay going rate is about $550 to $750. With the current instant savings it's ...
  • Created discussions Zeiss instant savings
    Looks like B&H and Adorama, at least, are discounting at least some Zeiss lenses. I checked the 50 Makro-Planar ($200 off) and the 135 Apo-Sonnar ($300 off). This is the first time I've seen ...
  • Replied in bump
    Thought I'd bump this thread now that the 50 Art has been out a while. I have the Zeiss 50 Makro and generally love the quality I get from it, but truth be told I rarely use it. The Canon 24-70 ...
  • https://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/ Looks like that is still the case. There are builds for firmware 1.1.3 and 1.2.3 but nothing later. It is required that the ML build match the Canon FW build or it ...
  • Well I bought mine as a "hobby" camera, but I guess it depends on what you can afford as a hobby. I'm glad to see so many praises of the 5D3 in here. I love mine but in some ways think the 6D would ...
  • I think it's still considered "the lens to have" for the best walkaround zoom on a Canon crop body. I had one and loved it, never gave me any trouble. Sold it last year to replace it with FF stuff. ...
  • I'm looking for good optical quality, ease of use, no or minimal vignetting with UWA lenses, good compatibility with all 77mm lenses, and hopefuly also with the TS-E 24mm (which has an 82mm filter). ...
  • That would be a pretty sane duo! I went to Churchill, MB twice in the winter. The first was for a northern lights workshop.  I had my 60D.  I mainly shot northern lights with the Canon 10-22 (and ...
  • I voted #1 - my 5D3 and bag of lenses should be all I need. I'm ready to spend my money on other things. Yay! In theory. That doesn't mean I wouldn't consider upgrading if a 5D4 (or even 6D2) ...
  • Maybe similar: I've had a weird issue with one of my CF cards. Camera sees it just fine, I can remove it, use other cards, put it in again, take more photos to it, etc. But after a while, the ...
  • Replied in Monoprice
    This place has some great monitors for surprisingly low prices. The list: http://www.monoprice.com/Category?c_id=113&cp_id=11320 I have this one at work and am pretty happy with it: ...
  • Heh, I'm the OP for this thread and surprised to see it back! Given your Canon gear (can't speak for the rest) I'd probably take the 10-22, 17-55, 70-200 (I had all 3 of those on my cruise and do ...
