This is about zooms: 16-35, 24-70, and 70-200. Canon is unique in offering both F2.8 and F4 versions. Nikon only has F2.8. Sony FE (the new A7 models) are only F4. But there are differences: 1) While the 70-200 has IS for both apertures, the F4 has for the 16-35 and the 24-70. For low light stills, IS may provide 2-4 F-stops more light with a slower shutter speed (although with more motion blur of a moving subject) while the F2.8 is just one F-stop faster. For low light stills, F4 IS would...

i currently have a canon 16-35 f/2.8L II. while i like the lens mostly, sometimes the images are softer than i would like them to be. and the distortion is just ridiculous at smaller focal lengths. i'm looking to upgrade to something better. don't care if it is prime or zoom, auto focus or full manual. i just need the best image possible with a 5D Mark III and i need it to be under 20mm. i looked at the Carl Zeiss 15mm Distagon T* f/2.8 ZE. i'm thinking that may be my best option. but before...

Hey everyone. First time posting on the forum, so bear with me. I shoot sports and action a lot - basketball, etc... I have two Canon bodies (70D and T3i) and am looking at a better wide angle lens. Here are the lenses I have: 18-55 kit lens 70-200 2.8 50mm 1.8 85mm 1.8 I'm thinking to sell the 85mm 1.8 and buying a better wide-angle (2.8) lens where the AF is going to work fast enough for sports like basketball. As I see it, I have 2 or 3 options if I'm not going with a Canon 24-70 (since I...

Hi, I'm interested in what lens I should buy next. I'm looking into L glass, but also kind of a budget. I kind of have a more photojournalistic style, and I vary from portraits to landscapes, a good zoom with a constant aperture of at least 4 or 2.8 would be the best. I've been looking at the 24-105, 17-40, 16-35 (pricey), 24-70 or a 70-200 (Debating IS or non IS, since I found myself doing sports photography indoors). I've looked around on Amazon, BHPhotoVideo, and even Craigslist to just...

This summer I'm going on a 23 day road trip through the Badlands, Yellowstone, The Grand Tetons, Glacier, Banff, and Jasper National Parks. This will obviously open up the opportunity to get some incredible landscape shots. I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II, and am wondering which of these two lenses will provide with me the best images. When it comes to the 24mm, I've seen some stunning results with the 5D mrk ii. Combined that with it's low light capabilities and better sharpness wide open,...

Okay so i've got a Canon 7D and looking in the future to upgrade to FFLooking at 17-40 so I don't have to change lenses when i go FF but no IS and is it wide enough i don't know. So my question is what's the best? I don't want to spend loads and the 16-35 isn't amazing for the price, so what should i get? what's coming out? preferably i want a walk around lens but for wide-angle/landscapes etc but i want to quality - I have the 18-135 IS and want something much better quality. Canon 7D100mm...

Okay so I need some serious help, I am new to the forums so I very much apologize for a possible repeated question but I feel it is a on person to person basis for a lens decision so here goes nothing...I have a newly bought Canon 60D and I'm looking for a new everyday lens for both photos and video. I want to get a higher quality lens compared to what I have now (50mm, 18-55mm, 70-300mm) but they aren't doing it for me.What I am looking for out of a new lens:Better image quality then my...
