I'm an amateur photographer that mostly shoot portraits, landscape and events. I bought my 70d last 3 months and i only own one lens, which is a 24-105mm f4l is usm. i feel like i need both a ultra wide angle lens and a prime lens. i got a budget around $900 to buy both of that lens. What two lens do you think i should buy?  here's some of my choices after doing some research ultra wide : -canon 10-18 f4,5-5,6 is stm -canon 10-22 f3,5-4,5 usm -tokina 11-16 f2,8 primes : -canon 'nifty fifty'...

So I wanted to go out to shoot today, only to find my batteries to be dead.. I know that I charged them a couple of weeks ago and the camera have not been used in the meantime. I'm using the quite old Canon EOS 1000D (EOS Rebel XS) and the lens that have been mounted on it was the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, if that matters. Is it normal that they discharges this fast? I don't recall having this issue before.

Hi DPReview, I am currently backpacking through South East Asia and have been mostly using my Canon 600D with an EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM attached to it. The lens was purchased brand new and has been in use for less than a month. I had my camera set up on a table at a river-side restaurant with the intention of just filming the world go by and I noticed that after about 3 minutes the whole lens had gone completely cloudy. Not a single person or thing touched the camera during the whole time of...

Hello, this is my very first post on this website. Anyways, I will be buying a Canon 5D (Classic) soon and I'm stuck between which lens to buy: The 24-105L f4 IS, or the 28-70L f2.8(Just to clarify, yes I mean the older 28-70 not the 24-70). I think it's a rather hard decision because although the 28-70 has a fast 2.8 constant aperture, the 24-105 does have IS and has that extra 35mm of reach. I'm looking for a lens that will basically be on the 5D at all times, except when indoors (I'll be...

Hi Guys, I just bought a Canon 60D, however im not sure which lens combo to go for: 10-22 and 24-105 OR 17-55 and 70-200. I do alot of landscape stuff but sometimes i cover stage events like concerts, etc so which lens would be best for doing that kind of stuff. I'm not sure whether 105mm is long enough for covering concerts and whether 17mm is wide enough for landscapes. Thanks.

I just paid a fortune for the 24-70 2.8 II as an upgrade to the 24-105, but after testing and testing I'm finding that the 24-105 is sharper. How is this possible? I've attached comparison pictures, both taken on 5DIII at ISO 5000, f4, 1/100th. This is a crop from 100%, dead centre of the frame, straight out of camera. I took them about 30 seconds apart and found that the 24-105 is sharper throughout the zoom range. Have I just got a bad copy?

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...
