    Hi Graham: The 5D Mark III has excellent high ISO performance, and you can take advantage of this.  Set the shutter speed to 1/1500th, aperture at f2.8, set ISO to Auto and let the ISO float to the ...
  • I shoot sports extensively and have used the 28-300 IS L for soccer on crop frame bodies with good results.  If you are shooting from the sidelines and the action moves in close, then away, the ...
  • Shutter: The IIIs probably work well, too. But its the lens that is really special.  The 300mm f2.8 IS L (versions I and II) both tolerate the Canon 1.4x and 2x extenders better than any other ...
  • Hello again, Abu: I see that you are once again doing your best to personally attack me in the most offensive way possible.  But, as before, you've pretty much missed the point. There is no ...

    Hi Ryan: First - I'm glad you are enjoying the 55-250 STM lens. If it inspires you to be creative and shoot more, its a good lens, period. Professional photography is another issue, though. Paid ...
  • Hi TJ: You can shoot sports with either a 300mm or 400mm prime, with the 400mm doing well for outfield shots on a crop body and the 300mm better for shots of the pitcher from behind the backstop ...
  • Hi M: For full dress rehearsals of live theater productions, I usually use a Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS L, sometimes mated to a 1.4x TC II, for a total focal range of 70-280mm, on a full-frame Canon 5D ...
  • ...The venerable 17-35 f2.8 L, the 16-35 f2.8 L I, and the 16-35 f2.8 L II. My experiences with the 17-35 and 16-35 I are that they are decently sharp in the center at f2.8 and fade in ...
  • MS: I can pull out more shadow detail in post from JPEG images with ALO on, and it is easier to do.  Since I often have 300-500 images to post-process, "easy" is a good characteristic to have. Bein ...
  • Hi Jose: I've been surprised as well by the performance of this lens (Tamron 150-600 VR) on a full frame body, where it is close to the 100-400 in effective focal length on a crop frame body.  But ...
  • ...a real difference when shooting sports with an f2.8 lens.  Servo AF is more accurate when I use the center focus point (with surrounding point assist) than when I move off center. Jay

    ... nothing to show, again but personal insults.  In this thread alone... "That's another of your fabrications...", "BS or fibs". Calling someone a liar, in contrast to disagreeing with them, is a ...
  • Hi Ed: Check here for travel photos... http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/56014099 It rocks for travel because of its size and robustness, is not the best performing zoom in this range optically, ...

  • Wild: You are welcome. The smaller sensor of the Canon crop-body cameras provides an (apparent) 1.6x increase in focal length. So, compared to a full-frame body (or old-school 35mm film body), the ...
  • MS: You don't "Need" ALO, but it does help under certain conditions.  For example, if I'm shooting is direct sunlight and the subjects face is in shadow, with no possibility of fill flash , JPEG ...
  • Hi Wild: If the 150-600 on a crop body does not give you the reach you need, you are done. Its the equivalent of 960mm on a crop body.  Using an SLR, the next solution would be the 400mm f2.8 with ...
  • Hi Alex: F2.8 versions still are useful for creative photos that use the larger aperture and edge blur to emphasize subjects.  But the Canon 16-35 f4 IS is just rock solid everywhere in the frame.  ...
  • Abu: You certainly do make a career out of trolling and personal insults. And as usual, you do not tolerate a difference of opinion. Here is a constructive thought.  Why don't you post a good ...
