My first thread/question! I usually just read and read and read until I find an answer, but I have done so many searches and can not find the answer... Where my smart people at? I want to shoot video in continuous autofocus with a zoom at 2.8 aperture, on my sony a7Rii. Is this even possible? Awhile back I mounted a tamron 24-70 2.8 canon mount to an a7s, but was locked at 3.5 aperture for autofocus in video. Has this changed for the a7rii? Will it still lock at f/3.5? What if i use...
Hi People, First off, I wanna just say that even though I am a new member of the community, I have been checking out your forums for quite some time now to find a specific answer to my following question. I know all the data regarding subjects related, what I could really use now are impressions and your unbound feedback. I am considering going for some semi-pro gear now (from a 40D w/ 17-85 f4-5.6, 70-300 4-5.6), I am getting very passionate about this topic, in the future I might wanna go...
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...
Hi guys, I wonder if I could pick your brains... Does the Canon 24-70L f/2.8 II have a long 150º focus throw? (I couldn't find any official figures and found that number along with 110º on the net) And... Is it easy (in your opinion) and smooth to manually focus? Cheers, Mark.
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...
I'm putting together the last third of my trinity soon, and I'm having trouble deciding between the Canon 24-70L f/2.8 (II) and the 24-70L f/4 IS. I know there's a metric ton on this already, but I've researched until my head hurts and need some clarity on a couple things. Weight and cost aren't primary concerns, and I'm not an event pro. Either lens looks sharp enough for my needs. -When I got the 70-200, I knew I needed a f/2.8 because I would primarily be shooting moving things. -For the...
After many years of review and forum reading, I'm finally in a position where I'll be getting some new lenses in a month or two and I'd really value some final input. I had a basic 400D for 9 years, with a nifty 50, which I love, and various other lenses I've borrowed from relatives for brief periods (usually cheap, not particularly impressive lenses, but good to try some different focal lengths out). I upgraded to a 70D last year, and I think I'll be on this for a while. I also picked up a...
