  • Granted each new camera sensor seems to get a little better performing when handicapped for available light. This incremental advancing in sensor technology, allows the lens manufactures to push ...
  • Considering the Canon L is already slow at f/4.5-5.6 and the Sigma is a even slower f/5-6.3 , it all balances out as expected. Slower lenses are normally smaller and lighter. The new Sigma will do ...
  • Replied in Expected smaller
    Sigma  100-400   =     3.4" x 7.2" Canon 100-400L v1 = 3.6" x 7.4"
  • This guy will explain most of what you need to know. Watch it more than once and it will be well worth your time. ...

    Good Post, I agree 100%. I had a very similar experience a few years ago when I scanned my slides. I must say, film is clearly not as impressive as my memories left me believing all these years. ...
  • Nice capture Joe 600mm, plus a 2X teleconverter, and on a crop sensor besides. Well done. Moon shot post processing is very personal to each ones individual taste. I have never seen the moon in ...
  • Hi Carl Your post brings up old memories of the legendary G series. :) My G15 still gets used regularly. Its pocket able and is a very sharp 1.8-2.8 package that reaches from 28 - 140mm. It also ...
  • I am with you Ekill. Slower than 5.6 at 400mm is not a lens that even remotely interests me.  I have been shooting with a EF 100-400 5.6 classic for many years and recently a Tamron 150-600. Both ...
  • After spending 12 hours at an airshow, in the hot August sunshine, probably would convince most users that a light grey lens, is just one of the great perks from choosing Canon for their system. Ken
  • Thanks for the heads up. To bad your post got moved. I found your post here just by accident. I am just starting to experiment with Canon Connect on my 70D. I haven't tried it since the update. Ken
  • Replied in Great Idea !
    Luckily , I don't need any parts, but thanks for the offer.
  • Replied in Great Idea !
    It was very thoughtful of you to share such an interesting and useful photo. I am sure it will be viewed and appreciated by many more people then you will ever know. Your time spent creating this, ...
  • I am a long time Canon shooter. A serious recreational bird and outdoor shooter would best describe my addiction. :) That being said, technological devices aren't always timed nicely to fit into ...
  • Thank you for the reply. Your input on the 70D to 80D upgrade is helpful to me. Keep us up to date if you can find the extra time, but first, enjoy the new camera experience. :) Ken
  • Good Questions. I was looking seriously at the same deal. It is sitting in my cart right now, but also was wondering about the same concerns as yours. As a 70D, 100-400L V1, and Tamron 150-600 G1 ...

    I was very lucky to have my camera and lens handy. I just so happen to be doing yard work when I walk around the corner of my house to first notice him. He surprised me more then I did him. I have ...
  • Replied in Good Morning
    I agree. I have left overs of the grocery store version in my refrigerator right now.  :) Thanks for the reply. Ken
  • Thanks for encouragement. I think he was showing off because there where some females around. :) Ken
  • I am glad you got things sorted out. The reports on the new 100-400 have been very good. Good luck going forward and happy holidays. Ken
  • Yes, I agree, he does look like a tempting meal. :) Thanks for the reply and enjoy your day. Ken
