  • Thanks for posting.  I am considering this lens for a walk around plus a backup.  I use mostly L series lens but for walking around a city this might be nice if the image quality has improved over...
  • Created questions Tamron 16-300
    Tamron has announced an 16-300 lens for crop cameras.  Does anyone know an approximate release date for this lens?

  • Created discussions Tamron 150 - 600 in stock
    The Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon is in stock at Norman Camera. http://www.normancamera.com/index/page/search?FullText=&FullText=Tamron+SP+150-600mm&x=20&y=17 I ordered mine...
  • I'm always puzzled by those who say they are very satisfied with their existing equipment but dump it the moment a new shiny model appears. I am very satisfied with my 5D2. I did not dump it when...
  • No advice.  You have to make up your own mind.  But I just made that same upgrade.  I have shot about 180 pics with the 70D so far and am pleased.  Mega-pixels are of course better, jumping from 15...
  • Replied in 70D AF failure
    Went back out today.  Shot 62 shots.  Had only one problem.  Auto fucus on the rest were sharp.  At this point I think it is the lens.  I will send it in for cleaning.
  • Replied in 70D AF failure
    No, it mostly was animals.  Same kind of shots that I have used a few thousand times with the same lens.
  • Replied in 70D AF failure
    It was viewfinder shooting.  Not sure what you mean by other parameters.  I used all three focusing modes (spot, center, and averaging).  I was using one shot shooting except at the end.   I was...
  • Created discussions 70D AF failure
    I took about 70 photos with my 70D using a Canon 100-400mm L lens.  The photos were great except that the AF would fail from time to time.  If I turned the camera off then on the AF would then...
  • Mine will arrive tomorrow (the 28th).  I ordered it with two day shipping.  It has now left the DFW airport on its way to Arizona.
  • I pre-ordered from Amazon on July 3.  I did not get any suggestion of when it would arrive or be shipped as of today.  So I ordered from Adorama and already have a shipping number and an arrival...
  • You should have no problem if you follow the above advice.  You must have a clean, sharp image that is pretty much uncropped.  I would also recommend a canvas print for a large print this size.  It...
  • Only time will tell but in all likelihood the camera will be OK.  I know it is not recommended but I have done quite a bit of wildlife shots in the winter moving my camera in and out of my car...
  • I use the Sigma 12-24 on my FF and love it.  It is rated as a little soft at the corners but I do not feel it detracts from the image. If you are shooting mostly crop cameras a friend of mine uses...
