Hi all, First post for me but I've observed a lot on here in the past. I'm an amateur photographer. I'm the client of a pro photographer who has lent me his old 5d Mk2 to see if I want to buy it from him. My question is, how much would you pay for it? It's got high mileage at 287k actuations but generally well looked after. One battery and a battery grip. That's it. I currently use a 5d and 40d so don't really 'need' the camera, but if I can get this one cheap enough it might be worth the...

Hi everyone.  I've been a Canon shooter since my mom bought me a Canon EOS Rebel G film camera when I was in college, and I didn't take a dive into digital until I bought a Canon 40D used, two generations after its release.  My investment into Canon is otherwise minimal; I have 2 consumer level prime lenses, a 430 EX II flash with Chinese ETTL remote triggers, and I bought a battery grip.  That's about it. I'm at a point now where I really miss having the wider angles and shallow depth of...

Hey everyone, I'm currently an owner of a 5D Mark I and Eos M3. The M3 has proven to be a good camera but I've been shooting the past 8 years with a 40D and a 5D. I've gotten accustomed to shooting through an optical viewfinder and changing the AF points on the fly.  What would seem to be restricting to only have 9 AF points on the 5D actually helped me compose better during shooting. I just find it easier to look through a OVF or EVF when shooting. I purchased the EVF for the M3 but it's a...

Hello I am upgrading from 40D to 70D. My new Canon 70D will arrive with Canon EF-S 18-135 F3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. Also I will get Canon EF 70-300 F4-5.6 IS USM lens. Now I found Canon EF 17-40 F4.0 USM lens. Is is worth to replace Canon EF-S 18-135 F3.5-5.6 IS STM by EF 17-40 F4.0 USM lens? Thank you.

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...

I'm a new 70D user and I almost always shoot in aperture preferred priority mode (Av). If I activate and press the back button AF does that then over ride AF when the shutter button is pressed? This seems rather confusing to me, but what's been happening is I've been getting some really bad exposures as I presently just have AF and AE on the shutter button. I would like to be able to focus then re-compose and get good exposures. What is the best way to do that-- or is it possible? I have long...

I have a 40D and I want to upgrade to a 60D or a 70D, but I see on DXO that both 60D and 70D are marked as inferior to 40D in colour sensitivity and tonal range. Why? I don't care about more megapixels but I want better colour sensitivity, tonal range and dynamic range. I want to keep working with crop cameras and I don't want the added weight and cost that full-frame requires. What should I upgrade to if the 40D replacements are inferior to 40D? As I said, I don't want to upgrade to full-frame.

Hi I am an old 40D user, and after some years of enthusiastic carrying of 2,5kg+ of gears, I started to be bored of that. Don't get me wrong: I love my DSLR, but I don't want to walk with it every time I go out, or simply I can't. I will never sell it, instead it's now reserved for some specific context. Some days ago I watched at offers and, suddenly!, I was in front of my brand new EOS-M+22m+flash+EF-S adapter, exchanged for 199€. A real bargain, great quality, some AF issues, definitively...

I have a plan in my mind to shoot deer rutting in Richmond park, London, for 5 days. From my research, they are mostly active during dawn and dusk, which means low light shooting. I haven't done much wildlife photography, since my last trip to Kenya back in 2009. Now, here is my dilemma, I am tore between two options, and I want to confuse myself more by hearing your opinions. :) At this moment I have in my arsenal. Canon system: Body: 40D (10MP APSC) Relevant Lens: 70-200mm F4 IS , Sigma...

I have recently purchased a Canon 1D Mark 111, one without the shutter issue, and I'm having difficulties in setting up exposure bracketing with the camera, as I,m a fan of HDR photography. On my other Canon cameras, 550D & 40D, it is an easy process; go into menu, select AEB and move control dial until the amount of compensation difference is set, put camera in drive mode & press shutter & three photos are taken, one at normal exposure, one under exposed & one overexposed.  On the 1D under...
