Hi,  I'm just wondering what everyone thinks about this, this is my first post so bear with me. I currently have a canon 60D with a 70-200mm f4 L IS USM, and an 18-135mm IS kit lens. I'm looking at getting the 17-55mm lens to replace the 18-135mm as a walk around lens, but I'm not sure if it is worth it. I can get it new for about £395 (from a reputable seller), which I'm lead to believe is very cheap for this lens (this price does include a cashback offer from canon). It also comes with a...

Hi thereI am a beginner by every means, had my 650D for around a year now. Know about settings and aperture and iso and everything.When it comes to deciding between a fast lens (2.8 or 1.8 and so on) and another lens say 3.5 or f4 and higher. The latter being better in low light photography. Is that just low light hand held? I see many incredible photos taken with the 17-55 and many say due to its 2.8 aperture its better than say a slower 15-85 in some instances. All the great pictures I see...

Our school archives is looking to purchase a DSLR to serve two purposes: First, we would use it to digitize (i.e. photograph) a collection of large scrapbooks by mounting the camera above them on a camera stand, then using remote capture to view the shot on a monitor and take the picture. The largest scrapbooks are about 28"x22" and we would try to supplement the ambient light in the room with some work lights on stands. Second, we would use it to film speakers in two different contexts --...

7d, 1/60 @ f/10 ISO 100, 31mm (EF-S17-55mm f/2,8 IS USM) I,m having trouble getting my images pin sharp. The active focus point is at the yellow trees in the center. It seems that the image is more sharp in the front then in the back. I see this issue often, specially in landscape images. The details does not come out as I like them to. Any suggestions? Is it my technique, my camera or my lense?

I've decided to sell my front focusing Canon EF-S 17-55mm lens.  It's off by a fair amount, it requires a micro focus adjustment of +8/+7 at wide/telephoto on our 7D mkII.  Whether I sell it on eBay or craigslist I would mention the front focusing issue so there would be no surprises.  I still have a couple of weeks left on the warranty so I may have the option of sending it in but it doesn't sound like that is necessarily a sure bet for an accurately adjusted lens.  I'm looking for opinions...

i need a bag for my gear and i'm inclined to the sling-style bag. the tamrac velocity 8z was on the top of my list but i just discovered the turnstyle 20 and i'm really liking the flexibility of carrying it on your waist or as a sling. i don't know, though, if it can hold my gear: a 7D2 w/grip, 70-200L2.8II, 17-55, and (i might be getting) a 24-105L.  anyone have this bag? any thoughts? thanks very much.

I have a 70d with a Canon EFS 17-55 f/2.8 USM. After a few months of use, I noticed that the bottom right corner of my image was unsharp in some situations. The issue was clearly visible at 55 mm f/2.8, less so at 17 mm f/2.8. At f/5.6 it was still visible, and at f/8 almost gone (or at least reduced to an acceptable level). In addition I had the feeling that the AF was inaccurate, so I sent the body and the lens to Canon for servicing. I got it back and now:- The blurry corner is still...
