Hi,I am planning to buy Canon 70DPlease let me know which of the below combination would be more useful-1. 18-55 IS STM and EF 70-300 IS USM .2. 18-200 IS3. Downgrade to Canon 60D and have better lens options Side question: Can 70 mm on a APS-C be used for normal photography like functions and celebrations while using 18-55 only for wide angle landscapes/full family portraits/close macro?

I am shooting a wedding this weekend (7/26/14) with my 70-200 f4 and my Canon 6D. The wedding is outside at 4 pm.  Will I have any issues with it only being an f4? Thank you!!!

So I recently upgraded from a T3 to a 70D. I am having trouble getting crisp shots and am unsure of the cause. Because I am into wildlife, having time to set up a tripod is not always feasible. I really need help with this. For instance yesterday I went out and took a bunch of pictures of goslings. Pretty much all of them are fuzzy. If they are not fuzzy, the auto focus fails to focus on the important aspects of the image (i.e. the animal, its eyes). Or, as shown below, only one subject is in...

I have recently purchased a 70D and an EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM and really like the handling and feature set of the 70D. I did find that I needed to micro-adjust the lens quite significantly to about 17 steps to correct a front focus issue. Both camera and lens are still within the return period so I was just wondering if that amount of adjustment is normal for this lens or should I ask for another copy. I presume it is the lens rather than the camera. Why I ask is there is not much more...

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...
