My 1DS Mark II's manual states that there are different AF point benefits, depending on lens type and speed: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/8/0900000248/01/EOS1DsMII-IM-EN.pdf , page 73 I can't seem to get copy/paste working in the link above, but it says that out of the 45 total AF points on the 1DSII, 7 points in the center column will function as cross-type sensors when a f/2.8 or faster lens is attached; the remaining 38 sensors will be horizontal-only sensors. If the lens is f/4 or slower...

I've got a 16-35mm F4 L that I LOVE, and I use it for almost all uses except for informal social events (BBQs, family events, portraits). I have my trusty 50mm 1.8 II that I'm using for this purpose now, but I'd like to get a zoom with more range (and better AF). I've never had a tele zoom before; is 70mm too long for general purpose indoor social events? If any of you use one of the Canon 70-200mm L variants, do you find yourself trying to back up through a wall very often when indoors? Or...

I have two Tamron lenses. 24-70 f2.8 and 70-200 f2.8. I was not convinced the 24-70 was focusing as well as it should be and followed some fine tuning instructions which resulted in a -5 adjustment and better focusing! All good. But the other day I used the 70-200 and noticed the images we're not as sharp as they should be. When I checked the data, the -5 setting was being applied to this lens as well? I checked the manual and it seems that each lens (up to 20 max) can be given its own fine...

Hi all, Have been watching this site for a long while now and I finally decided to make an account as I cannot decide on which to lens (so many different lenses/reviews :s) My setup: Basically in a few months I will be going travelling for 1.5 years in SE Asia, Australia (almost a year spent here!), New Zealand and possibly some French Polynesia island. I own a D3300 with the 18-55 vrii lens kit, a 35mm 1.8G and a Joby Focus gorilla pod as I love to take long exposure.  I will take my 35mm...

Hey everyone,I'll be travelling to South America (Chile, Peru and Bolivia) in Mid-May for 2.5 weeks with my friend. I'm from Asia so it's kind of a trip of a lifetime for me.I'm having some trouble choosing what lenses to bring as it's hard to balance between quality, safety and weight. We'll be staying in decent hotels (3 stars) throughout but my concern will be during transits and at tourist locations as we will mainly be travelling by bus and train. Also, it's just the two of us (my friend...

Hello!    So after doing tons of research i decided to pair my D750 with a tamron 24-70 2.8f VC. Once i got the lens in i noticed the slightest amount of "play" in the zoom ring. You can pretty much wiggle the zoom ring slightly with out moving the actual zoom and i was wondering if this is normal for this style tamron or i got a bad copy possibly? If this is normal then i am starting to think i might have to spend the extra on the nikon.

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am planning to buy some ziplock bags that I can use to put my D810 in when coming in from cold environment to warm environment. I was looking online but not sure what size ziplock bag would be good enough to encapsulate D810 with Tamron 24-70 lens and be able to close? I am looking at 15" x 20" but I don't know if that is large enough, maybe not. Any idea from anyone or someone who uses one? Many thanks :) --http://www.mf-photography.com

Does anyone out there own this combination, the Tamron 24-70 and the A77II? If so, what has been your experience with focus accuracy and the need for MFA?  In particular, do you find a huge discrepancy in the needed MFA value at 24mm versus 70mm? Reason I ask is so far I have tried out two copies and both are way off in needed MFA at both ends.  Both copies are off by as much as 13 points.  At 24mm, I need around a -6 to -7 to get tack sharp photos.  But setting this makes the 70mm shots very...

I am considering buying one with Sony A mount.  The reviews are awesome and beside  vignetting and barrel distortions at f/2.8, and 24 focal distance (which are somehow normal and also present in the more expensive zooms). My main worry is how the hybrid aspherical lens is going to last in time. My understanding is that the hybrids are made from a spherical lens behind which optical quality resin is injected to form an aspherical type of lens by superposition. This resin (some call it...
