  • Fantastic photos, both technically and artistically speaking. I also love my 6D. It was the only FF camera I could afford (used) and it's charged how I shoot. The low light capabilities are still ...
  • I think even if you're never shooting wide, the low light capabilities of a FF can be a game changer for sports (no pun intended). Buying my 6D completely changed my confidence and opportunities. ...
  • Reviving an older thread rather than creating a new one. Thanks to everyone for sharing. I've had great luck shooting jets the last few years but struggled with the gorgeous WWII warbirds at a ...
  • This looks amazing but I can't commit this early. I know I'll be in VA sometime in the spring but not sure yet when that will be. Good luck!
  • Thank you. I just picked up a used copy but as it's coming from overseas, I will not have it until the new year. I saw a few deals on used TCs. Just waiting to see how I like the glass before ...
  • Thank you for sharing this. I am looking at the same lens. If it is half as good as you say and in as good condition as the seller says, I am in for a bargain. Which teleconverter did you use? I ...
  • Thanks. Good advice. I generally keep it on except for tripod shooting. A first-gen 120-300 sold on the bay today. Nearly pulled trigger on that for the flexibility. I'll focus on the prime and ...
  • I bought the Tamron 100-400 in August and used it for an air show. Last month I bought a used 150-600G2 because the price was too good to ignore. I have not shot with it yet nor have I picked up ...
  • Replied in Tamron 300 2.8
    I'm looking at the Sigma 300 and noticed the old Tamron as well. Only found one decent review and it wasn't praising. Looking forward to other feedback.
  • Now you guys have me looking at the old Sigma 300 and an older 120-300. Found a 300 under a grand. I would need to start shooting some local sports teams to justify it, but I have some friends ...
  • So to bring this to a close, I did buy the 100-400 as stated above. And then a 24-70G2. And then a 15-30G1. And just this week, a 150-600G2. Please change my ebay and paypal passwords. . . The ...
  • I've actually started using the app in the field instead of a wired remote. I'm the opposite in that I can't figure out how to get it to work on the home network; I've only used the direct...

  • Thank you. It looks like the bags you mention are all current. The Slingshot X02 series I mentioned have been put to pasture. I was hoping to find a bag that can hold both bodies with lenses ...
  • Thanks. You guys are killing me! I can't buy BOTH! The divorce fees are too high! 😎 Question for you, Peter: what would you use to carry that for a show? The kit I have now is a little ...
  • Created discussion thread Longer options than my 70-200
    I asked this in the "buying advice" forum but was directed to the Canon forum. This one seems more appropriate. I did not see an option to simply cross post, so apologies for the duplicate. Since ...
  • Replied in Longer options
    Thanks, Kelly. Is there a simple way to cross post or do you mean just re-post? It seems the Canon lens discussion is almost exclusively about Canon branded glass. I thought perhaps the ...
  • Replied in Longer options
    Thanks for the reply. Are you referring to the mk2 or OG Canon? Either of those would require me to rent. I cannot go over ~850 (I'd stretch to that for the right used Canon). Is there a reason you ...
  • Created discussion thread Longer options
    Hi, everyone. Long time lurker, but this might be my first post, or at least my first in many years. I've been shooting about seven years. In 2012 I bought a Canon 40D off a friend and used it ...
