Hi all, Here's one for you.I recently purchased a 70-210mm from eBay after reading plenty of good things about the bang-for-your-buck ratio of this lens. After some testing, I've found some interesting things: Between 200-210mm, taking a photo - at any aperture - on both my SL1 and a friend's t1i produces an immediate Err01 message ('clean the lens contacts'). The problem occurs on both manual and autofocus. The problem does not occur at any shorter focal lengths, tested across the gamut of...

Hi all!! I'm a newbie when it comes to the world of mirrorless cameras so it would be really great to get some input into the possible choices of mirrorless cameras which I hope that those experienced ones out there may be able to help me out with. This is what I'm looking for in a mirrorless camera: 1. Budget: below $500 ( although I'm willing to go up to $1000 if it includes the lens ) 2. Works well in low-light conditions. ( I find taking a tripod out to take a candid shot at night can...

Hi all, I'm new here, I'm a hobbyist photographer with lots to learn, I came here to look at reviews on some new lenses. I'm using a Canon 500D ( plan to buy a 6D) I have a EF 70 - 200 (4) lens, a 100mm Macro (2.8) Ef lens, other then the basic kit lens. I want a good everyday leave on the camera lens that will suit most situations. I'm thinking of going with the Canon EF  24 - 70 2.8 ll but then I don't want to regret the extra zoom the 102 gives me. Thoughts please & why.

I have a Sigma 1.6 diopter 52mm close-up lens. And now my kids want to get me something for my new FZ1000 (they'll be pooling on this gift). I'm thinking another close-up lens, but which one? 1. Raynox 250D or 500D 2. Canon 250D or 500D 3. Marumi +3 330 Will be doing macros (bugs and stuff), but don't know which lens will compliment the Sigma I already have. Doubt that I will be able to stack (don't even know if I'll want to stack) as the ring diameters will be different. Regardless of which...

Hello CANON 6D forums: I currently have in my camera backpack the following: CANON 6D, Canon 180mm Macro lens, Canon 100-400mm Zoom Lens, a 500D close up lens, and my 24-105 kit lens…I love macro and I love my 100-400..would I be able to "create " the same combo with a mirror less system…I know there are adapters for lenses but I'm most interested in the macro options…if I use my current lenses, there really is no sense in changing to mirror less simply to lighten my load….please let me know...

I am currently shooting with a T1i, its kit lenses (18-55 is, 55-250 is) and the canon 50mm F2.8. I am most concerned with my inability to capture volleyball, basketball and other low light sports (gym or night games under lights) with my gear... Even with the 50mm F2.8 lighting is an issue in some of the gyms where I cannot freeze the action at an acceptable iso level (especially when shooting jpeg) I am committed to moving to the 7DmkII as I have been waiting for some time for its release,...
