Hi I'm an enthusiastic photographer and recently moved to the Canon 700d with the 18-55 STM lens. I like all kinds of photography such as portrait/photos of kids and family, macro and nature and really wanting to try sunset/sunrise landscape shots. I love the bokeh effect to make my photos of the kids stand out and I think makes the photos look more professional. I bought the Canon 50mm 1.8 II and been achieving some good results but I find the 50mm on the crop sensor too tightly framed, I...

Hey everyone, I'm kinda new to documentary photography, I own a Canon 550D, and I want to buy a new lens (since I only own the 18-55mm and a 55-250mm) to suit the field. So I've kinda narrowed my choices down to either the Canon EF-S 17-55mm F2.8 IS USM, or the Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM. Regarding the Sigma, I haven't dealt with fixed focus lenses before which makes me a little hesitant to lose the range, even though i seen that it has great reviews. Another factor is the fact that I have a...

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...

Hello. After some searching, I am about to purchase a mid-zoom lens for my Canon 700D. I mainly shoot landscapes. Portraits do not interest me that much. What I need to know is whether the 17-55mm lens will be noticeably better compared to the 15-85 lens. The practical benefit of the 15-85 lens is that it could be the only lens I need for landscapes (going below 17mm) as well as for general use. It is also lighter and doesn't suffer from dust issues as the 17-55 does. Here are the crucial...

So I'm looking to buy at least one new lens and have been reading B&H, Amazon, and this forum for reviews and suggestions but I'm a bit stuck.

Hi there,I'm changing my gear and I was considering to buy a Canon 6D but I realized it won't work with a EF-S lens. I sold my old camera and kept the glass, I have a EF-S 17-55 f2.8 and a EF 50mm 1.4.I kept the first one because I loved the photos I could make with it and when I saw the new 6D I was crazy about getting it and use with the 17-55, but it won't "accept" it.I'm now considering getting a 7D, but I'm kinda worried about what I will "lose" if I don't get the 6D.Could anyone help me...

I own the 50D and also the t4i and I have one single lens: the 17-55mm 2.8 canon.  The only thing I shoot with these cameras is my kids, in my home.  I had thought of selling the 50D and using the t4i for both my pictures and videos.  However, I'm beginning to think it might be better to use my 50D for my pictures and the t4i exclusively for video (that way I can keep a flash on my 50D and a hotshoe-mount mic on my t4i, for example). I'm thinking of using my 17-55 for the stills on my 50D and...

I sold my lovely 17-55 because of lot of problem with the autofocus. after 3 years of usage with a 40D before and after with a 7D, my impression is that this lens is great from an optic point of view but not very solid. Probably I was a bit unlucky, so I'm looking for a replacement. any suggestion? Another 17-55 (hoping to be more lucky)? thanks paolo
