  • Replied in This one.....
    One of the reviewer on Amazon (by the name of Byrnes ) says that "the card is deeply recessed."
  • Samsung's consumer grade 850 EVO series 2 TB currently sells for $750. The 16 TB drive here is an enterprise class with 8 times the capacity. It will sell for > 8 times the price. You pay a lot to...

  • Replied in So far so good
    I installed Win 10 on my 4.5 year old PC the first day (July 29). My PC had many upgrade thru the years and now has 16G of RAM & 3 HDs. The installation took a bit over an hour, completely hands ...
  • Canon was moving up the focal length range with IS versions of their prime lens. There was the 24, 28 f2.8, and then 35 f2, with IS, USM and much better optics.  But the 50mm 1.8 is only a copy of ...
  • My Think Tank Speed Freak can take 3 main items: (1) 5D Mk3 mounted with 24-105L (2) 70-200 F4 IS or 100-400 Mk2, depending on how much weight I want to carry.
  • The first photo with ISO 1600 and f14 is not the best way to test a lens. At f14, all lens suffer resolution loss due to diffraction. Besides the noise caused by such high iso blurs out fine details. ...
  • Decades ago, I have borrowed my brother's FD (non AF) 24 f2.8 many times. Optically, I think they are near identical. In order to have a full line of EF lens, Canon just redesign their entire FD ...
  • I saw them last year in a Korean owned supermarket in the Los Angeles area. -- Peter Kwok Click here for my PBase gallery WYSIWYG - If you don't like what you get, try to see differently.
  • Technically you are right, the EF-M 11-22 is slightly better.  But the OP has a 60D, not a EOS M that takes EF-M lens. TyphoonTW addressed the OP saying the 10-18 is "the best you can get." Bringin ...
  • From your gear list here, you don't have anything wider than 24mm. Thus, even a kit lens or the general purpose 18-135 STM is wide for your. The next wider lens is the 15-85 IS, also a standard ...
  • Replied in Impressive!
    Several years ago, I visited this building with a Ef-s 10-22 on a crop body. I can see the huge difference between 11mm and 16mm equivalent. I feel inspired by your shots.  It makes me want to go ...
  • Professionals need equipment that they can trust even in rough environment. I have dropped my 70-200 f4L IS with a loud thud and gasps from on-lookers. It was a concrete floor covered with thin ...
  • Replied in Canon 55-300mm ?
    Can makes 75-300, 55-250, and even 55-200. But there is no 55-300.
  • Replied in It should
    Close up lens are just dioptic lens like reading glasses. They shorten the focus length of the lens. Thus for the same close-focus extension, shortened focal length focuses closer. Since you still ...
  • The f2.8 version lets in twice the light, therefore requiring a front element twice the area, resulting in a lens twice the volume and twice the weight, using twice as much materials. Thus, Canon ...
  • First of all, your 70D does NOT have built-in IS. Canon puts the IS into their lens. Your 70D probably was bought with a kit lens with IS. I hope you did not pick your on-line name for the wrong ...
  • When using silence mode along with Live View, your 5Dmk2 used "electronic first curtain". When you press the shutter, instead of flipping the mirror and opening the mechanical curtain, it ...
  • Replied in Be careful...
    Do not try until you read this review. The extender may bump into the rear element of the lens. http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-70-300mm-f-4-5.6-IS-L-USM-Lens-Review.aspx
  • Before there was the Internet, they WERE one of the best dealers. Their thick ad in Popular Photography was the first thing I checked on every issue. You called and give them a credit card # and ...
  • Canon makes lots of tele-zoom lens in this range. For crop bodies, the series of 55-250 is much sharper than the aging 75-300. You can get the discontinued 55-250 IS for < $200. The latest 55-250 ...
