Hello, new to the forums here. I take a lot of photos - nearly all are "nature" photos and most are landscape, but I also take a good dose of wildlife (mainly birds, but also flowers). I use a Nikon d3200 (has an APS-c sensor). For the landscape (and flowers/foliage) I use the kit lens which is a Nikon DX series AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6. For wildlife (birds and such) I use a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 ED. In a nutshell, I like the 55-300mm a heck of a lot better: the images are...

Recently I've been asked to shoot some athletics events and have another one coming up.  I like to shoot in RAW as it suits my workflow.  I've been using my 6D and 1Ds2 and whilst I've got by switching cameras as the buffers clear, I wouldn't mind something with a deeper faster buffer.  A faster frame rate would be nice too.  A crop body would suit me as I'd be using it with a 70-200f4.  A 7DMk2 seems ideal, but as this isn't paid work, so I don't want to shell out that much. There are a few...

Hello! So I just bought the A7II from a Sony dealership and will receive it on Friday. I am going to be crossing from Canon to Sony but the only lens I have on Canon is the 24-70MM f/2.8 Mark 1. This is a great lens and I would love to continue using it on the Sony; HOWEVER, I've found out since that auto-focus does not work on the Metabones adaptor and only works for the Mark 2. So here is the question, should I cancel my order and buy a Canon 6D? Or is the focus-peaking on the Sony A7II...

Get conflicting info from reviews on the AF of the 6D. Most reviews seem to fall down on the side of: Extremely good center point AF - also for low light photo, but5DII-style weak outer AF points. However, there is an unusual wide spread of opinion. What is the user verdict?

I have an adequate Lownpro (Slingshot 200AW) which I am very happy about, but I need a simple case just for my 6-D and 24-70 f2.8 lens.  Any suggestions please.  Thank you.

I'm about to start a photo project about blue collar work in my region. A lot of the photos will be outside in less than ideal conditions including the ocean, farms, factories, logging operations and the mountains. The 6D is newer with a better sensor, while the 1DS MkIII is built like a tank and has a pretty decent sensor to begin with. My question for those with a 6D: Do you think this camera can handle rough environments including rain, snow, sleet, sea spray, dirt, and the occasional...

Hi Guys,  I am about to make a new camera decision , but i need your help. my decision is on A Full Frame the 5D MKIII or the 6D. the 6D is being considered since i heard its a Low light champ and more affordable than the 5D. but the 5D is touted as the more advanced specs choice.  the main selling point is 1-image quality, 3-low light performance, range of photography challenges that can be achieved.  thanks for the help and feedback.

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.
