RJSecoy's recent activity

  • I would like to add that, since many of us do not shoot video, how much does the 70D offer without that?
  • Thank you for the very thorough and helpful reply.  It is clear that I misspoke as it was not my intention to delve into the tech of the PSAF v. CDAF.  Rather, I'm trying to understand the general ...
  • At DPR Canon EOS 70D Review (12) Autofocus: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canon-eos-70d/12 DPR posits: "As we'd expect, the Dual Pixel [phase-detect] AF system outperforms the conventional ...
  • Thank you yet again.  I think you're right for me to just stay with the 70D's for now and see how it goes.  I'm used to them and don't really have that many problems with the bodies.  Only ...
  • Yes, I'm amused (or not) to find that everything blurs and bleeds so much on newsprint that I sometimes wonder why I bother.  In fact, I haven't really up to this point, but now I'm being asked ...
  • Thanks for posting your shots - really fun.  I'm back to bother you again, but do not feel obligated to respond.  You mentioned FF vs. Crop about which I still have concerns. (1)  I'm told that a ...
  • Thanks - this is great info.  It very much sounds like you have a great deal of experience in the same things that I'm trying to do.  Your sample photos have such a wide range that seems ...
  • Thank you - I had not thought of the short lens on the crop and the 70-200 on FF, with the longer flipping between the two bodies.  I'm getting nice agreement with your and other comments; so I ...
  • Yes, the "distance to the background, focal length, distance to the target, etc." is exactly what I'm having problems with.  I'm covering parties, banquets and balls with no control over anything. ...
  • Thank you, this is essentially what I'm hearing and the more confirmation the better, plus it sounds like you're shooting subjects I'm trying to cover.  Very helpful, thanks.
  • Thank you for the help - that does seem like the way I need to go.  With 2 lenses I currently cover 24 - 300 and use all of that.  An answer from a photojournalist suggested about the same as you: ...
  • Sorry, I forgot to ask about your having a 7D and 5D III, which does sound like an ideal combination.  My concern is that I would often carry and use them together.  There are other instances, but ...
  • Thanks for your approach and examples of tennis.  Yes, I agree that those are the best "shots" to go for, and I have reasonable success with my 70-300 f/4-5.6.  I noticed that you can run ...
  • Thanks for the detailed options.  Yes, your suggestion of 2 bodies with at least 2 lenses sounds like where I need to be.  I could use these at the same time; so your Combo A makes a lot of sense ...
  • Thanks very much for your help.  I had not looked at Sigma, but you're right that I should. I like the 6D but got stopped at the 4.5 FPS Continuous.  Even with the 70d at 7, a tennis ball will be ...
  • Question #1: I kind of shoot a bit of everything except studio and weddings: newspaper, magazine, wildlife incl. birds, sports, landscape, nature (esp. flowers), dogs still & motion, beach, etc. ...
  • In case it helps in any way, I purchased a first 70D and two "L" zoom lenses and had the same AF problems. I exchanged this first body, but the replacement is not any better.  I was planning to ...
