  • Mine feels smooth borderline loose, but it's my only internal zooming zoom.  All my others have to extend a barrel.
  • Replied in New lens plan
    I see.  I also have a 18-55 IS that I would be keeping with the wife's 350D that I could use as a back up standard zoom.  I'd probably put the money for the 17-50 towards an UWA like the 16-35/4 ...
  • The 17-50 OS is a good choice.  I would also look into a flash that you can bounce like a 430EX any version or the Yongnuo equivalents.  Still the 17-50 at 2.8 can only give so much blur where you ...
  • Replied in New lens plan
    Thanks for the input.  Interesting that you didn't suggest selling the 17-50 too.  You think I should keep that if I got a 6D?  Also I have a really good copy of the 50/1.4.  I would keep that and ...
  • Created discussion thread New lens plan
    So I have been trying to rethink my lens plan and maybe instead of planning a switch to FF, I stay with crop. I was thinking of adding: 11-20/2.8 18-35/1.8 50-100/1.8 18-135 STM for video and walk ...
  • LOL, Or that the OP has only ever made 4 posts and all of them were in this thread 8 months ago. I doubt he even knows how to log back in.
  • I have never like the performance of close up filters. On the other hand the fotodiox tubes do not degrade the image at all because they have no glass. For $50 I think I can get to 1.7 times ...
  • My 7D can do that now in a way. I just pick 19 point full auto in AI servo and select the center point as the starting point. Its meant to track a moving subject, but I can just as easy move the ...
  • I see what you are saying. The other side is I am not sure how Canon views the 6D line. Do they consider it more of an upgrade for existing Canon branded shooters, or is it a switch systems line? ...
  • I think I am just being super impatient in waiting for the 6D2 with a little bit a GAS nagging at me. The new 80D is basically everything I want/need in a camera except it’s not full frame. If ...
  • Interesting. Like I said I don't follow Nikon much but if that 3d tracking works as well as people are saying then Nikon is not just ahead in the dynamic range area, but there too.
  • OK this makes more sense. No its not really a lack of sharpness. I really would like more blur in a lot of situations and in general cleaner high ISO pictures when I can't use flash. IE stage ...
  • Replied in Pretty much.
    I don't pay that close of attention to the Nikon world. Are you mainly referring to the number of AF points? Their AF systems are sometimes a bit of marketing hype. IE the D500 claims 153 points ...
  • Replied in 1 and 2
    What part of this are you having difficulties with? What on earth are you talking about here? Fuzziness?
  • Replied in Pretty much.
    19 points at 7FPS on FF wouldn't disappoint me much. The lack of F8 AF would be a bummer though. As long as they kept the price in check: ie, I would pay more for a full frame 80D than a full ...
  • Good point JACS. Plus I like the idea of keeping the weight down with the 70-200/4 IS on FF versus the 2.8 on crop.
  • True. This is why the 70-200/2.8 is something I am looking at now. I really wish I had a better idea of what I was holding out for with a 6d2. I mean they could improve MP count up to 36mpix, but ...
  • Replied in 6D2
    Just give me a full frame 80D with all the AF points, FPS, F8 focusing in multiple points, dual pixel, tilty screen, etc I'll settle for a full frame 70D.
  • Getting the 5D3 and 70-200/2.8 IS II would mean selling most of my other gear, but I could just about make it work. I would keep the 24-105 and 100L though. Maybe add a 35/2 IS down the road. As ...
  • That is one way. The 6D2 will probably have the dual pixel thing to get AF during video which is a big plus. Also if they can improve the AF to include more of a 70D or 80D AF system and give it a ...
