  • Canon started this themselves with the 5DII. They "opened the box" in a way. We're long past the notion that a camera can't do both and do both well. Sony, I think, has blown that idea up. While I ...
  • I've had the 50 1.8 STM for a few months now and I'm really quite pleased with it in all regards. I think it's a great value and, for the moment, probably the most sensible 50mm option for Canon.
  • Based on what I've read lately it doesn't look like a 6DII is going to be for sale before at least 1st quarter 2017. And the question then is will it be under $2,500 on release? The 6D launched at ...
  • I sold my Sony a850 (which I loved) and my remaining a mount lenses this spring and switched to Canon. I did consider the A7 cameras very carefully before making the decision. Your needs and budget ...
  • No it's the IS USM (new model). I was just surprised a four-year old lens was still kicking around. I'm going to give it a test tomorrow and if everything is fine optically I'll keep it.
  • I just got home with a new 28 2.8 that I bought from a local camera store. The store is a chain and they had to get the lens from another location. This lens isn't regularly stocked by any store ...
  • I picked up the M2 (blue, from Japan, no lens) after my original M developed a sensor issue. I really like it. I haven't noted any significant difference between it and the original M. Great little ...
  • The Pentax K1 has some built-in lights to illuminate the lens mount, LCD area and memory card area. That sort of feature would probably help you out. My guess is that the number of people for whom ...
  • I spent a lot of time recently comparing the 1.8 STM to the 1.4 having just moved to Canon from Sony. I shot with a Sony 50mm 1.4 on Sony FF DSLR. That lens is based on an old Minolta design and ...
  • Unfortunately it's quite complicated. For reference, I usually don't shoot wider than 35mm (on FF). This is a great all-purpose lens. IMO, 28-35 is moderate wide angle territory. 25/24 is where ...
  • Yes it seems like every bag you consider is "just not quite right". It speaks to the difficulty of designing them I think. The Thule Rolltop has a rolltop. So if you need more room in that top ...
  • I should add that in the Perspective Daypack video it looks like he has room for a jacket, a Clif bar and that banana. So it might work for the OP if he doesn't need to bring much more than that.
  • I wouldn't be concerned in light to moderate rain. Depending on how long the rain lasts. The bag's material feels like it will be fairly water resistant and the interior compartments and exterior ...
  • Sorry, I should have been more clear on the Rolltop — it won't meet your needs. I wouldn't want to wear it for a longer hike. A light couple hours at most but it is more an urban/commute bag. No ...
  • I have been looking for more-or-less the same thing for the past few weeks. I just came back from the store with the Thule Covert DSLR Rolltop backpack: http://www.thule.com/en-us/ca/products/bags- ...
  • This is the only question I can chime in on. For what you like to photograph and the locations you mention, 24mm is really not wide enough. And that's from someone who rarely shoots wider than ...
  • Replied in Canon 6D
    There are two 6D models. WG and N. WG indicates Wi-Fi. The N does not have Wi-Fi or GPS. I've never seen an N model for sale but I guess they must exist. I love having Wi-Fi.
  • I posted about the Canadian price increase a little while ago. I was waiting to buy a 6D and lenses not realizing the prices were going to change in April. I lucked into a 6D at BestBuy (they ...
  • I live in Canada and I don't know that there is any company that rents this lens. Certainly not in my city. Although renting is not a bad idea, I tend to believe you need an extended period with a ...
  • I've looked at both the Makro Planar and the Milvus. Both are very nice. But both are a lot more expensive and at the price I would rather have the Canon 1.2L. At the moment I'm thinking I may need ...
