  • Well I am thinking about it for sure. The only thing is if the 80D has the same problem with my 17-55 then I have gained little. The 80d looks good and they have updated the focussing on it so it ...
  • I have two 70ds, a 40d and a 60d. The first 70D was brought in Japan one year ago and had terrible focus problems. Distance shots were soft, whatever lens. Normal shots were very good in bad ...
  • It's a great idea and a great picture. And let's be honest, winner of the contest might do something, but the publicity when it was realised the picture was faked hasn't hurt Yu Wei. I imagine his...

  • I brought the 10-22 and it is fantastic, have used it for a few years now. Compared to the 17-55 it is slightly soft, but then the 17-55 is well known for being really pin sharp. You won't need IS ...
  • OK, no doubt there will be some 'told you so', and that's fine, which is why I am posting the results. In Japan the camera was constantly soft at distance or mid distance even. That was with all ...
  • Yes, same thing, with contrast it's front focussing like mad. Pictures taken later on the same day in overcast weather were totally stunning. Focused on the right point, but beyond that soft and ...
  • Focus point was on the horizon, confirmed with red square and green dot. Focus as you can see is close to the bottom of the screen. This is an L lens, 100mm IS so maybe rubbish but I have always ...
  • Thank you very much for both of those, will study them tonight after work, thank you Malcolm
  • Just done a few of the harbour at night with the new 70D and the old one. Same lens used on both. 18 with the new camera. 13 excellent focus. 50 with the old camera, 18 excellent focus. About 30% ...
  • The camera does the same on my 100 USM L IS lens, on my 17-50 lens and on the 50 lens. In any case I have brought a second 70d and that will be here on weds. Then I shall do side by side ...
  • Focus point was on the buildings at the back. Viewfinder showed a sharp picture. Green light, and red focus point, centre one. On the computer the image is out of focus, but at the bottom of the ...
  • Replied in Topaz de noise
    Thank you ever so much for that. That's a good basics for me to redo some.
  • Fair enough What I do to increase the contrast is to set Clarity at between +10-20, vibrance at around +10 and saturation to about +5. This I find gives the image a lovely punch with nice definied ...
  • Created discussion thread Topaz de noise
    I got DeNoise to try and make some night shots look a little better. I followed the videos and the result I got I was never totally happy with. Then with the latest lightroom , I seemed to think ...
  • I leave it at Lightroom default and virtually never sharpen a picture beyond that unless I am printing it, then I take it to Photoshop and apply some, depending on the picture and so many other ...
  • Over the holiday I shall try other lens with the camera. the initial problem when I brought it has been fixed as distance is now excellent, but still haven't had a chance to try it in bright ...
  • I also think he meant as you say, that the 60d and 7d mk 2 is better for viewfinder focusing opposed to the 70d. He has said twice that the 70d was mainly intended for live view mode. A point ...
  • They have never changed the firmware for the 70D, but yes I had heard there were problems with the 7dII and my lens That is very interesting as that is what is happening with the 70D with that ...
  • Hi Phil Thank you ever so much for that kind offer, I am in Ramsgate so not so close, nor close to the big stores. I still might try and hire one but it seems pointless unless Canon agree if the ...
  • Totally agree. There is a massive dance festival in Japan in March and I need a fast shooter for that. So I am not thinking of buying a 7D mk 2 and selling the 70d to a second hand store as they ...
