I currently have a Canon EOS Rebel T1i with an ef 85mm f2.8 usm, ef 50mm f1.8, and 2 kit lenses (55-250mm is and 18-55mm is). I like to shoot landscapes, portraits, animals, sports, and family events. I plan on buying the Canon 70D this year and can't decide whether or not to get the 18-135mm as a bundle with the 70D or to buy the 15-85mm separately. I'd like to replace my T1i kit lens with a new daily use lens like one of these two. Would like to be able to utilize the video recording...

My brother is selling his Canon EF 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM Lens (http://www.amazon.com/Canon-EF-70-300mm-4-5-6-USM/dp/B0007Y794O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389395283&sr=8-1&keywords=Canon+EF+70-300mm). I have an NEX-6 and am thinking about buying the lens, but I have no experience with using adapters. I am wondering what kind of adapter is necessary to use a lens like that with my camera and any drawbacks there would be compared to just buying a Sony E-Mount lens instead. Thanks

I discovered this yesterday using a Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS MACRO HSM lens, but wonder if the root cause is inherent in 3rd party lenses. I went to a butterfly conservatory with a friend yesterday; I used my Canon T3i with my Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS MACRO HSM, and she used her Canon T3 with the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM. It was decently lit, and we used long focal lengths to get close-up shots of the butterflies. We're relatively new to the DSLR world, and so took all our...

Hey all, I recently (about a month ago) picked up a Canon 60D with a Canon EF 17-40 f/4L lens from a co-worker (this is the first DSLR I've owned, so take it easy on a newbie, 'kay?).  That lens has performed admirably for many of the shots that I've taken (landscapes/portraits/action shots where I'm just about in the way of the action).  However, some of the shots that I've wanted to take have left me in want of something with a bit more reach (wildlife/casual sports photography) (mainly...

Hi, I was hoping to get some advice here on what lens I should buy. There are two lenses I am currently considering, but I am not really sure what to judge them by. And since my knowledge of lenses is very limited I haven't even tried looking at lenses from different brands.My current gear: 600D - kit lens (18-55) 50mm lens (the cheapest Canon one) Reason for getting a new lens: I am not a pro-photographer. I just like taking pictures. Sometimes I just want more zoom I will be visiting the...

Hi All, I recently bought a refurbished EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM (non L version), the first copy I got was really load when the IS was on.  I sent it back and got a second copy which is much better, but still loader then any of my other lenses.  Is this normal for this lens, or for that matter, any lens? The lens finds focus quickly enough, but then for a second or two after there's a whirling noise followed by a slight "thunk".  It only seems to happen when IS is on. Thanks in advance for...

Hi Everyone, I am very new to photography and just purchased a Canon Rebel T3i and the kit lens was the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens.  I am happy with it so far but I feel already I need something with a bit more reach, the subjects that interest me most would be wildlife and sports which the kit lens doesn't handle very well.  I am curious what people who have used both the EF-S 55-250mm and the Canon EF 70-300mm would recommend.  I am on a bit of a budget which is why these are my...

I recently purchased a canon 70-300mm IS lens. It's secondhand, and was advertised as mint condition, in perfect working order however there is a noticeable hum/whirring noise when I use the lens.The noise is only present when the IS is turned on, and it does not appear to affect the image - however I wanted to check whether this noise has occurred with anyone else??thanks
