  • Since the lens popped off two different bodies, check the indent on the rear mount of the lens where the locking pin slides in to keep the lens mounted.  Check the locking pin on the camera lens ...
  • I don't know about the size and weight of the Quantum Turbo batteries, but would a belt system work for you?  For example, the Think Tank Skin 50 or similar belt pouches would fit on your belt (or ...
  • Hi Donald, Always good to see your images.  It's nice to see things from around the world.  Here was my train of thought as I looked at the three images. Image #1:  Nice photo and I don't remember ...
  • Replied in It can work
    I rarely shoot on a tripod with this lens, but I have taken panoramas with it on a Gitzo 2540, Kirk BH-3 and l-bracket. It wasn't with slow shutter speeds, but I don't see drift at 10x in ...
  • Replied in Two suggestions
    First suggestion:  Like several people mentioned already, check for any smudges or other issues on the rear element and front element.  The hazy areas in the photo don't look like flare to me and ...
  • For your indoor shots, I don't think f/4 with its additional one stop will be enough of an improvement over your current 55-250.  At f/2.8, you'll have the first shot at either ISO 3200 and 1/200, ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Do you have the T2i or the T2? Your current telephoto is the 55-200, not the 55-250? I'll guess that you're at f/5.6, so getting a f/2.8 lens will allow you to shoot at two ISO stops lower, so ISO ...
  • Here is your exact quote: "The one that confuses me is why anyone would buy a 600/4 II over a 400/2.8 II + 1.4x TC III. The later is $1,000 cheaper, only a few ounces heavier, 3 inches shorter, and ...
  • HSS isn't a custom function so you won't see it there. On my 580EXII I set it on the back of the flash with the button that has a lightning bolt label. Not sure offhand how you set it on the ...
  • If you didn't, the max shutter speed will be 1/200 on the 5D and the photos will be blown out in decent light. Enable HSS and you will be able to shoot at faster than sync speed at the cost of ...
  • Both links ask me to log in.  Can you post an example to your dpreview gallery instead? James
  • Meaning the comparison is restricted to the shorter FL lens with a 1.4x TC to the longer (bare) lens with no consideration of going any longer.  As Schwany stated, you take the AF speed hit with a ...
  • Replied in I wouldn't
    I have the 24-105, the 24-70 v1 (which I need to get around to selling...), and bought the 24-70 II over the holidays with the sales and rebates.  I shot the 24-70 v1 at f/2.8 mostly and had no ...
  • Replied in Mine rotates
    The lateral movement you described doesn't strike me as something to be concerned about since I would expect there to be the smallest amount of wiggle room.  It's not bad to have looked at this ...
  • Replied in Mine rotates
    My 400mm f/5.6L also rotates a tiny bit when mounted on my 7D.  It doesn't pull away from the body or shift laterally from what I can tell.  The amount of "free" rotation is maybe 1/64", but I ...
  • I don't have any of the Acratech ballheads but my smaller ballhead is the Kirk BH-3, which is rated for 15lbs.  When I put my 5D3 with grip on it with the 70-300L fully extended, it does not drift ...
  • Replied in Some tips
    Personally, I would be deciding between the Canon 100-400, Canon 400, or the Tamron 150-600.  Since the Tamron is new, I'd wait for more user reports to see if there are any other issues or quirks ...
  • I thought that I read a post some time ago that Canon wouldn't service the 85mm f/1.2 MK1 any longer. I don't remember what country the poster was from, but it's worth checking with Canon. James
  • Replied in Some feedback
    Overall I like the photo. With the pose, she engages the viewer. Here's some additional feedback so take it for whatever it's worth to you. :-) 1. I'd have her relax her right hand. It's balled up ...
  • Since you're talking about only taking a couple of lenses or so, I'm interpreting that to mean lightening your load and/or reducing the volume of gear.  Since you didn't mention landscapes or ...
