My first post in this forum, hope someone can help me. I have recently dug out my fixed Canon 50mm f/1.4 to use on my 5d mkII. At f/1.4 and up to f/2.8, all images are out of focus. I just tested this lens when I set my camera on a tripod, took three shots focused exactly on the same spot and at f/1.4 the image is unusable, f/2.8 was better but still soft and f/3.5 was nice and sharp. The test object was about 20 feet away on all three shots. When I last used this lens on my old Canon 400d,...

Hi. Just noticed some circles on my latest photos in Nuuk, Greenland. Can any one tell me why there appears faint circles on the middle of every frame?  Is it because I took the camera out to cold air (-8 celsius).  I have a Canon 5D Mark II, 16-35 2.8 L.  ?? Haven't noticed them on older photos ..

I have just had the mirror box replaced by Canon on my 5D Markii. When shooting the shutter is now quite noisy - why would this be?

I am thinking of selling my 5dII and most lenses in favor of a 645z and a smaller camera. Can I adapt my Canon 17mm Tilt Shift to work on the 645z?  Would the image circle leave me any shift? Thanks

Hi everyone I need some advice. I shoot portraits, weddings and sometimes events as a sideline job. I hate the af system on the mark ii and I lose a of good shots because of this. I use the 70D for wildlife and my love for birds. I have a 400mm f5.6 lens I use with the 70D which works very well. My question is, Do you think the 5D mark iii can do the job for my wildlife and birds? Then I will sell the 70D and the mark ii to get a mark iii. Thanks

Hello all, Just wondering if anyone else has had their monitor completely black out on them and what they did. Today mine started to flicker then just stopped showing anything, I've turned it off and on again and all the usuals but still the screen is a blank. Not sure if I'm going to have to swallow the costs and get a new one or it can be fixed for a reasonable amount of money, and quickly. Any advice great fully received.  Thanks so much for reading. Take care.  SARAH
