A few days ago, I purchased a new 24-105mm F/4 L white-box lens. While using it, I noticed very bad purple fringing and sometimes red chromatic aberration. I'd say the fringing and aberration are as bad as my 18-55mm kit lens (sometimes even worse). Here are some shots (taken in RAW format) Taken with a 1100D beautiful... Taken with a 70D nice 24-105mm owners, please let me know if this is normal. Thanks.
I have two copies of the 24-105 L lens (4 years and 2 years old). Today, for the first time, I noticed that the IS on the newer lens is pretty noisy. First I thought the lens might be developing a problem but I checked the older lens, which is on an older body and doesn't get much use nowadays, and found that it makes the exact same noise. Maybe just a tiny bit quieter but exactly the same continuous noise while IS is operating. No noise at all with IS turned off, of course. Is this normal...
My wife and are are potentially days away from the birth of our first child (a little girl) and I want to have my kit ready for in hospital shots after my responsibilities during labor are complete (i.e. camera is not coming out until the baby has arrived and we've both had a chance to hold her). I have a 5D3 and am trying to figure out what lenses to bring with me. Given that I won't bring a flash (too bright for newborn eyes) I'm trying to maximize my fast lenses while still having enough...
I have a Canon 6D with a 24-105mm lens. I am looking to buy the Cokin filter system but am confused about the size to get (P or Z-pro). I understand some forums say that there could be vignetting at low focal lengths. There is a fairly large price difference between P and Z-pro filter systems (especially on the circular polarizers). Can someone who uses a full frame camera with low focal length lens please advise? Also, can I use a screw on CPL on my camera and use the Cokin system or do I...
I'm a new videographer who just purchased most of my gear, except the lenses. I have a Canon 5dmkii with a Canon 55mm f/1.8 After reading lots of reviews and recommendations I've narrowed down the field to some third party lenses I'm considering going in on. At this point my budget is roughly $600-$900, so that puts me at either one zoom lens or two primes. For zooms I'm looking at the:Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 ( image stabilization) vs the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 (with no IS). I've also heard mixed...
Hello everybody. I currently own a 6D and usually use my 24-105mm for landscapes at the 24mm end. However, I'm looking for something a bit wider and sharper to get some better landscape shots. I'm open to almost any lens and I have been particularly interested in the Samyang 14mm. However, it's inability to use filters seems somewhat troublesome. Also, the zeiss 21mm also seems to produce some stellar images. Can anybody give some specific recommendations for sharp wide angle lenses around...
Finally it's time for me to step up from my current 350D with Sigma 18-200 3.5-5-6. Regarding the body it was quick pretty clear I would become a very happy chappy with the 70D. Then I spent lots of time in reviewing what decent walk-around lens I wanted to buy. I was convinced this time I had to spend a more serious amount on the glass. So after two weeks of investigation I decided to opt for the Canon EF 24-105 L IS USM. Again a compromise of course, but for what it offers not bad at all....
When I use wideangle and takes shots of the sky in CR2 format (or jpeg does not make sense) star images are rather tiny. Which makes them virtually invisible when displayed smaller than the original resolution. Increasing contrast, reducing noise, etc.etc, whether Photoshop or darktable: the images, even of bright stars like Alpha Centauri or even Sirius remain tiny. On the web I see several wide angle shots with nice bright stellar images, but for me it seems a no-go :-( These samples are...
I made an extension tube for macro photography with the 24-105 f/4L from PVC plumbing tube of 70mm long glued with a rear lens cap and a body cap. The inside is sprayed with black matte stove spray to prevent reflections. Flash: Canon Speedlite 270EX/II Bracket and flash cable: each $10 from ebay Pictures are taken at f/11. I squeeze the aperture by setting it before unmounting, I press the DOF button while unmounting to keep the diaphragm ring 'frozen'. I zoomed in until the max. 105mm and...
