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...

Hi all, I currently own a 60D, a 24-105 f/4 L, and a 50 f/1.8. I was wondering if I should straight swap the 60D for an original 5D. This will then give me the full frame advantage,  turning the 38mm equivalent of the 24-105L on a crop body feel like a 24mm. This would also turn my 50 f/1.8 into a slightly wider prime, which is what I want at the moment. It will also give me a shallower depth of field for both lenses. Are there any other things I should be aware of when making this jump. I'm...

Last month I bought a 24-105 f/4L, and last week I sent it back to Canon as I was experiencing some ghosting and flare issues when shooting in bright light. I had the lens returned yesterday and "it was found that the product performed according to specifications". I've been using a Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 for the last 7 years, and it's been a fantastic general purpose lens. It's never failed to provide some very good results for pretty much anything I've thrown its way and I've never had any...

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. What I have: Body: Canon Rebel T3i Lens: 18-55mm (kit) 55-250mm 40mm 10-22mm Flash: Speedlite 430ex II Rented: 100-400mm (nice lens; no everyday use for me, not even once every 6 months) 50mm (the 40mm lens were on sale so I went with those instead) I am looking to replace the body a couple years down the road, not sure whether I'll be going full...

So i've done some research over the past few months, and i'm ready to get a camera. I do lot's of video editing so I want something good for video, but also want to get more into photography and at least have something reliable for that as well. So far i've come up with this… 1. I seem to like Canon, the picture it puts out, as well as the UI, button layout, etc. 2. 5D Mark II is nice but lil old to buy, and not the best AF system 3. 6D would be GREAT for dark shooting, but the video moire...
