  • 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 ...
  • It is a great lens and should serve you reasonably well. I do think though that an older lens would be worth less than one produced in, say, 2012. As noted above, this lens has motors which can ...
  • Just realized after I posted and saw EXIF that these weren't even the widest ones, heh.  Here are a couple at a different market at REAL ultrawide.
  • Specifically the Tuesday market in San Miguel de Allende with the newish Canon 16-35 f/4L. These markets are so colorful and there is so much to look at in every direction that I think an ...
  • I gave up waiting for Sigma in November and got the Rokinon. Truth be told I haven't used it much yet.  Possibly because of MF hassles, possibly because I simply haven't needed it. If it turns out ...
  • Replied in 5DIII or 6D?
    > I own a 5D3, but if I had the choice again I'd buy a 6D. Me too, I think. I chose the 5D3 primarily for video, but I don't do nearly as much video work as I thought I would. I do do a lot of ...
  • You should be comparing the 15-85 to the 17-55 f/2.8 - then it's a matter of which you need more - fast aperture or more zoom range (on both ends). I can't imagine why one would chose the 24-70 f/4 ...
  • As I stated above, they're generally excellent, but so are the competitors (including non-L Canons). From a completely different perspective, you really have to give Canon Marketing a lot of credit ...
  • But that's true of some third party lenses (Zeiss, newer Sigmas, even some Rokinons). The *real* "L" differentiator is great build quality. In general, of course, they are optically excellent. But ...
  • Yep. The 55-250 (non-STM) is one of the few crop lenses I haven't sold yet (and probably won't) for a similar reason. Great on my 60D in sketchy places. "L" quality IQ? Certainly not bad, but I ...
  • Crud. Wonder if I should regret having just bought the 400 f/5.6 new last month. :(
  • Yeah. I sold mine earlier this year along with most of my crop lenses, to concentrate on FF lenses, but it was always excellent. Really the only criticisms might be 1) the older "only" 2-stop IS, ...
  • Thanks guys for confirming that there is no need for me to buy the 24-70 2.8. :) I can get the same great quality from this lens, and my 24-70 f/4, while not being quite as good, is much more ...
  • Awesome. Please report back in this thread once you've played with it a few weeks! As for the Sigma, it might not be a year. They often announce some stuff in the spring; a 135 may be a ...
  • Replied in Tilt
    Not on topic for this thread, but if you need some help with tilt, you might check out this thread I started last year: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52072617 Lots of helpful advice there. I ...
  • No idea of when, there's just a rumor going around that it might happen. I'm happy to wait a year or more.  If nothing comes to fruition from Sigma then *maybe* I'll think about getting this Zeiss ...
