My question is simple - Is there a big difference in image quality between something like a 5Dmk1 and a 5Dmk3 (or 40D v 7Dmk2) at ISO 100 in studio conditions? I know there have been big improvements in low light and focus and so on. But most of these are at high ISO with the lens wide open, shooting sport, etc.  But for the studio photographer shooting at ISO100 (besides megapixels), has there been significant a significant improvement in IQ. I'm strictly talking about image quality here -...

I'm still using my 40D & need a good quick lens for capturing my puppy & other's. Been considering the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 or would the 50mm f/1.4 work just as well? Had an 85mm f/1.8 but gave it to my daughter for portraits of our granddaughters. My Aussie pup is nearly 5mos old already & would like to capture her development!! Thanks for your suggestions :-)

I think my 40D may be on the way out. I want to post some picks and get others advice. I have just recently started to shoot in higher ISO, 400, to capture movement and not miss the moments. I also change my picture style to faithful which uses no in camera enhancements. I do nature and natural light candid portraits as well as more general stuff. I have been noticing unwanted color lately, in certain situations, but I wouldn't think it is ISO related. I have talked to Canon twice and they...

Hi Gang, I am finally moving up and was hoping that I can get some of your feedback as to how I may like or not like moving from a 40D to a 7D Mark II.  Can someone tell how it was like going from the 40D to the 7D original.  I read so many negative comments on the 7D Mark II, I am a little discouraged.  Thanks in advance for your feedback. Aloha, Scott

I've owned a Canon 15mm f2.8 lens for about 10 years now, shot a couple pics the other day using it with my 1d body (aps-h) and FF cameras I want to keep using it, but I just purchased a 7d (aps-c)... so my question to everyone and anyone is...   I would like to know if its worth me buying this lens to use on my 7d or if I am going to get the same shot with my 15mm fisheye. seems like an obvious answer but the 15mm fisheye is widder than the Canon 14mm L wide-angle, and other lenses also, if...

At present I have a 40D and 70D with 18-135 STM/50 1.8/85 1.8/70-200L 2.8 (non IS), with Lightroom 5, I mainly shoot sport/basketball as a hobby. Photos are used on local club/league web sites. In the last 6-8 months I have started to take a keen interest in wildlife photography, mammals and birds mainly. I would like to expand into this area, the main issue is reach of lens (far too much cropping) the options I am looking at are: Canon 300mm 2.8L IS Mk2 with x1.4 and x2 Extenders. 1DX and...

Good Afternoon, I have never had photos printed.  I would like to print the odd photo to approximately 48 inches by 36 inches on canvas or paper.  Types of scenes may be portraits or landscape or underwater or astrophotography. What I would be grateful for is advice on whether there would be a noticeable difference in the print if the photo was taken on the Olympus EPL5 versus Canon 40D versus  the Canon 5D Mark II when the print will be large.  I own the Olympus EPL5 as well as the Canon 40D...

Hi! I am an amateur in photography and would like to enter the world of DSLRs. I am advised to start with a used entry-level DSLR like Canon 40d. I found a good offer of Canon 40d (small shutter count, nice condition), but seller told me that on one setting of aperture camera shows an error: Lost communication with lens. We tried a number of other lens and everything worked fine. But, these problems with first lens prevent me from buying and open a big dilemma: to buy it or not? I tested the...

I just inherited an EOS 40D from my father.  I found the manual online, but I am having a very basic problem.  When I turn on the camera, there is no picture in the viewfinder.  But if I take a picture, it shows in the viewfinder.  How do I see thru the viewfinder in order to compose a shot? Also, the manual says there is just on and off.  But my switch has a middle setting.  What does it do? Thank-you.
