Hi everyone, I got a 7D with a 24-105mm L lens a few years ago from my dad, because he upgraded to 5D with a 24-70mm L lens. Now I am looking to switch from my 7D Mark I to a 70D because of its video capabilities (mostly). If I also sold my 24-105mm as well as my 7D, I could buy a new 70D with a new 18-135mm IS STM. As you can tell from my writing, budget is an issue. I don't want to invest any money, because I can't. So the question is: how much of a downgrade will it be, going from 24-105mm...

What should be my next purchase / which order should I get the following items? I am itching to spend somewhere between $1000 or $2000 to make my kit more wedding or event ready soon, and plan out future purchases. I would prefer to spend only $1000 now, but like anyone, can find the money for the things I really need uhm - want. I don’t currently shoot weddings, but would like to develop the skills and kit to be able to do so. I like shooting small light primes, but it seems zooms make for...

I purchased this lens about 4 years ago Today I was needing to use aperture f/4 but the largest aperture that I am able to dial in is f/5.6. I tried to dial to f/4 in different mode but no luck. I have a 5DmkII and a 7D and I have tried it on both bodies and same result. There is no error code on either body. I have tried to change aperture to f/4 on all zoom ranges, no luck. I can change to different aperture settings except f/4.Any ideas? Thanks

I'm right on the verge of ordering a 5D3 to supplement my 7D2. But I'm wanting/needing a walk around lens to go with it, and am approaching data overload. The options I've thought about/considered in various prices are as follows(ranked in my understanding of the optical quality): Canon 24-105 f/4 IS +$600(body->kit pricing) Sigma 24-105 OS + 900 Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC +1000 Canon 24-70 f/2.8 II +too much Not sure where to rank the Canon 24-70 f/4 IS +850. I read some various things all...

For use on a 7D Mark II, I consider getting a quality tele lens for wildlife, landscape, cityscape, and overall use. It is to supplement my 24-105 L. I have narrowed the decision down to a choice between the 70-300mm L and 100-400mm L II. For ease of carry I lean towards the 70-300mm, but for image quality I have seen some samples of the 100-400mm that shows better results. For a long time "investment", the extra cost of the 100-400mm is not that important, but on the other hand I rather not...

I'm trying to decide between the 24-70 f/4 L IS and the 24-105 f/4 L IS. I'm leaning towards the former, mainly because of the physical size and weight. There are times when I hand my 7D to my wife for some photos and she always complains about it when I have my 70-300 L IS lens attached. I have a 17-40 f/4 L also. However, I'm needing something in the middle - both of those aforementioned lenses fit the bill. But - I'm seeing that the 24-70 has a "Hybrid IS". I've not heard of that before...

Hi, I have a 550D with 24-105 f/4 IS. I am wanting to upgrade my body to a 6d. I previously bought the lens used but at very good condition. However, I still have some concerns as I do not know if this lens has been used properly etc. no track records. Should I fork up extra money to get the 6d with the 24-105 kit and sell my existing one or should I stick to it and just buy a new body? thanks

Hi all I've been having an issue with my 24-105 on my 5D Mark III. I found that occasionally the image in the frame would jump around and I would be able to feel a vibration in the camera and hear a noise coming from the lens. I figured it must be an IS problem. I know the IS system will sometimes jump a little, but I thought it was jumping excessively so I took it back to the retailer who sent it to Canon for repair. I just got it back today with a sheet saying the "Image Stabiliser...

I just bought a new 24-105 and used it in australia where it appears to have gotten sand in it. Lens worked fine for 6 months then stopped making electronic contact with camera - will take photo but shows no metrics. Canon is saying there is sand in the lens and wants to charge a fortune to fix it - are there any other fixes to this? Contact points look clean....

I've got a 16-35mm F4 L that I LOVE, and I use it for almost all uses except for informal social events (BBQs, family events, portraits). I have my trusty 50mm 1.8 II that I'm using for this purpose now, but I'd like to get a zoom with more range (and better AF). I've never had a tele zoom before; is 70mm too long for general purpose indoor social events? If any of you use one of the Canon 70-200mm L variants, do you find yourself trying to back up through a wall very often when indoors? Or...
