  • After CanadaPost lost the second lens I ordered through Amazon, I cancelled my order and ordered a Canadian version through Vistek.  Unbelievably CanadaPost have also lost this order, and since it ...
  • Replied in If it were me...
    I'd be taking some test shots in as close a comparable situation as is available to me.  Then I'd get a couple of the best ones printed in the size I want to print the final image...  that's when ...
  • My thoughts... * So your camera bodies are stabilized with any lens?  Why would you even need lens OIS at all? * only you can tell what advantage OIS is to you. We're all different. * Do you have a ...
  • The first time I got married, we were on a tiny budget and paying for everything ourselves.  We hired a professional to shoot our registry office wedding ceremony. They took 20 images.  We got to ...
  • Mine have a pair of buttons switched (which drives me mad), but are otherwise the same in their button placement. There are differences between the cameras but they are subtle enough that I've had ...
  • I find OS to be incredibly valuable at all focal lengths. Most of my shooting is low light, but shutter speeds of between 1/100 and 1/250 sec. Since understanding OS a bit better, I have gone to ...
  • Are the taxes and duties prepaid?  If not, I don't want it.
  • ...and a lack of understanding of how difficult it really is to be a wedding photographer.
  • I'm realize I'm not most people in lots of respects but I'm not even sure where my cellphone is. I'll probably be hunting for it in the morning. Although I carry it at work and out when I need to ...
  • Looks like you're self critical which I think is vital to fast improvement in a fast paced environment.  Good luck with the next one. It'll get easier!
  • Spoke with Amazon again today. Lens #2 is definitely lost.  They offered to send another or refund me. After speaking with the operator, it's clear that the version is US only and there would be ...
  • I'd never do a wedding in a billion years...  it's not for everyone.  Was it good for you?
  • I carry two bodies more often than I carry one.  It does depend on what I go out to shoot, but most of my work involves two bodies, two lenses. I only use one bag, and it's quite big.
  • Replied in No correlation
    People's justification for their purchases can be so wide ranging that they might as well be completely random. And who cares? I admire some photographers, but mostly I'm just trying to improve my ...
  • Nikon D7100 (2 years old) - 41k Nikon D610 (1 year old) - 25k
  • Amazon didn't want the return insured. The original lens has been received by Amazon, even though CanadaPost think its still waiting for me to pick up at the local post office! It's the ...
  • Maybe.
  • With aperture, shutter speed, ISO, flash control, exposure compensation, and focus mode controllable without even taking my eye from the eyepiece, I don't really see how single ...
  • I wouldn't mind if it were a cheap lens, but this is $1500.  I'm not going to take it without a full warranty.  Tamron are the problem here, so talking about Sigma is really not relevant.  I agree ...
  • Personally, I use my 70-200 f/2.8 more than anything else, but honestly I'd start with a 24-70 f/2.8, then 70-200 f/2.8 then something wide 15-24 or something like that. I did lots of research in ...
