Hello all, I'm new to the forums and I wanted to ask all of you photography gurus and aficionados your opinion on the following matter. I have the following setup: Canon 6D Canon 85mm 1.8 Canon 35mm f/2 Canon 70-200 f/4 Canon 24-70 f/4 Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art I shoot street photography, portraits, and I like taking photos of architecture and landscapes. I was just wondering which lenses from the above list I should keep and which ones would be overkill? I usually shoot during the daytime. I...

I was wondering if I should upgrade from my 70D (which I've been mostly quite happy with) to a FF body this summer and the 6D looks to be an affordable entry point, that just might fit my style and needs. However, after having done a lot of research, I still have some questions that I was hoping I could get some advice on. First, some background: What I've been using my 70D for has been a lot of architectural, street-level photography in Manhattan - not a lot of candid photos of individual...

So far I've considered buying extension tubes for my 50mm, and I'm also keeping an an eye on some of those Sigma/Tamron 70/300mm zooms with 1:2 macro. I'd be also willing to buy some old manual lens as long as the price is cheap, my budget would be around the 100/150$ range, so enough for Kenko tubes or a cheap second hand lens. I've had the 100mm f2.8 few months ago, but I used it very rarely and managed to sell it at a small profit. Considering how much (not) I used, I don't see myself...

Hi, my Sigma 50 1.4 art lens focuses perfectly through the viewfinder on my 6D, then when I put it on my 1DX2 it doesn't focus properly at any focus points (except the middle point once in a while), almost all pics have the chosen focal point blurry as its out of the depth of field (at 1.4), as it missed. I first tested my new 1dx2 only with it and was worried my camera was faulty but luckily all my canon glass works perfectly with it as with my 6d so it's just the third party sigma lens...

I'm going to Costa Rica in a week, looking to bring a second body in addition to my 6D. I'm debating the 5ds or the 7d mk ii. My photography style will be close focus wide angle and macro of reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. Probably a few shots of birds and monkeys. What would be the better body? No need for fast frame rate. Any input on the better body for the application?

First off, I am a very happy Canon 6D owner. It does great in low light. I find myself more and more being drawn toward sports and wildlife. For this I have a Tamron 150-600mm lens, which performs well. However, it is a beast, and I find the 6D's autofocus too often lacking. I am thinking of two options. The idea would be too have a compact telephoto package in my bag along side the 6D. Both options involve purchasing a Canon 200mm 2.8 L II lens, as this is very sharp and compact. And used it...

Hello, please let me start that i'm not hear to do flame war or something similar, i'm genuine interest in both brands.  I'm looking for a camera that i can take on travel, street photography and so on. I do have my work camera Canon 6D but sometimes i just want to have a small lightweight with good image sensor. So my main contenders are: Fuji XT10 or Sony A7r I have already done some dynamic range comparisons and both are grate I'm just want to find out about the skin tones/colours in RAW...

Hello. I use the 6D and absolutely love it. I am looking to buy another used 6D body. But I am not sure how used is good and how used is too used? For example, one deal I'm looking for - US$950, 24K shutter count. I know there is more than just the shutter count. I'll see and play with it before buying it. But, does just the shutter count say anything to you folks? Should I specifically check other things before buying? Thanks, Neil.

I've had this issue 3 times in the last 4 months. My 6D is set 99% of the time in AI Servo, continuous shooting, spot metering, manual mode. It sometimes happen that suddenly the camera will start taking pictures at a much lower fps than normal. The first time I had this problem I noticed the battery was very low and guessed it might have something to do it with (though I had never experience the same thing ever before). The last time, just a few days ago, it happened on startup with a full...
