  • Can't add much but to say that TheDigitalPicture.com's comparison images are not at all like what I experienced between my old 100-400 and the Mark II. There seems to have been pretty wide copy ...
  • The MTF charts on their site are pretty impressive. Not apples to apples with the Canon charts, though, so I'm not sure how to rate the new one versus the more expensive Canon. For my money, the ...
  • Replied in wildlife lens
    I haven't owned the Sigma, but have owned the others. The version 1 of the 100-400 isn't up to snuff relative to the others at 400. Some will disagree, as apparently there is a lot of copy ...
  • I know very little about video shooting, but isn't the difference in slope from those images almost completely a product of comparing the 5D4 shooting at 30fps and the 1DX shooting at 60fps? I...

  • Exact same advice I was going to give, except I'd recommend looking at the Tamron 15-30 (which has stabilization) for the wide end. Stabilization is actually important for wide family shots, as ...
  • I do not think that amount of focus adjustment is extreme. So long as it is consistent, I'd keep it.
  • Owned Kenko and the Canon mark iis and iiis. I found no advantage to extender over cropping bare lens due to iq degradation on crop sensor (70d and 7d2). on full frame there was a small advantage. ...
  • Created discussion thread Where to go near Dallas for wildlife
    I'm on a business trip to Dallas/Fort Worth. I'll have 6 hours tomorrow before I need to get back to the airport. Looking for a wildlife management area or the like to get a sense of the land and ...
  • No joke! You won't be aware of it until you try shooting 10+ fps with your child. During action shots the facial expressions change radically, and the difference between one shot and the next can ...
  • Congratulations! As a recent father myself, here are the things that took me by surprise: - Photography was the one hobby I had that was compatible with taking care of an infant. It really ...
  • It's the best APS-C lens ever made, so far as I can tell. Yes, you can get a bum copy. I've had two copies of the lens, and they were fantastic. One required some work with the Dock to adjust it ...
  • I second the Tamron 15-30mm. Great image stabilization, super sharp, good range for a wide tele zoom. Most importantly, it gives you 2x the light as the Canon f/4. When I tested it against the ...
  • My lowly SL1 with the new Tamron 35. Good thing it has a short MFD. This was taken with 1/2 second exposure at 400 ISO fairly late in the evening (8:22) in Virginia. It was on a tripod and I was ...
  • Good point about the minimum focus distance. I exploit that often, and have grown accustomed to it, making the 70-200 feel like too much of an arms-length lens sometimes. It's a fantastic lens, but ...
  • Funny you just asked this. I was climbing down a tree an hour ago with my 70-200 II IS, cursing it because it wasn't the 100-400 II I left at home. I have a hawk nest project I've bene working on. ...
  • I've been doing a long-term hawk nest project that involves me climbing a 75 foot tree a couple times a day for a month and a half. On one of these trips, I though I'd get an iPhone shot of my 1DX ...
  • Replied in say what?
    Using both, I find the IQ of the 100-400 II to be a significant step up, outside of the obvious and important new features (IS, MFD, zoom range). It's not a full stop better, but a portion of one, ...
  • In terms of others perceiving your camera kit as "pro," there's already nothing you can do. People are so used to iphotography that even an SL1 is considered a crazy-big camera. Seriously, I was ...
  • I once was thinking about buying the Tamron 24-70. It had a reputation of being great for good copies and poor for poor copies. I asked B&H if I could buy 2 and return one, and the woman said that ...
  • I now have 6 months of use with the three YN600s. No problems, no overheating, which isn't to say that others aren't having that problem. I do use the flashes occasionally in 10 fps bursts, but ...
