  • If you're open to 3rd party lenses, the Sigma 17-70 f2.8-4 Contemporary is an excellent lens.  It's my walkaround on my 60D and is very sharp and not very heavy, plus it's well made. Other than ...
  • Very true.  I've never denied that.  I rented the Sigma 150-600 C for one of my trips and the extra reach came in handy on more than one occasion. I think for arguments sake and this thread, ...
  • Yes, I was using the 60D with the Sigma, which does not have in-camera micro adjustments.  I do have the Sigma USB Dock and updated the firmware on both the dock and the lens, and made several ...
  • I have the Kenko Pro 300 DGX 1.4x TC.  I've done little testing with it so far, but from what I've seen and read, the sweet spot with the TC and the 300L is a f8.  I took some shots at f5.6 and ...
  • I"m definitely not going to talk you out of buying this lens!  I traded in my Sigma 100-400 for this lens and I'm extremely happy with the choice.  Even with a 1.4x TC, it's sharper than my copy ...
  • Yes, some of them were cropped, but not much.  My problem with that lens was how soft it was, even in good light.  Every now and then I'd get a good sharp image, but most were disappointing, even ...
  • If I took your comment out of context, then my apologies.  I do admit I read your comment rather quickly, and my initial impression is that you thought the images were, basically, trash.  I was ...
  • Wow, that was rude... Please show and/or explain to me what would be acceptable to you?  Again, I'm an amateur and, for me and many others who actually matter to me, think the images are pretty good. ...
  • Hope I'm not touching a nerve :) I'd have to go out and take some new shots, as I always do some light cropping of my images in post.  I am mostly an amateur, but I think I take a few good pics.  ...
  • I'm not going to get into the "300mm is too short for wildlife" nonsense, just give my opinion. I recently traded in my Sigma 100-400mm C for the Canon 300mm f4 L IS (my first L lens) and ...
  • Replied in Lens for 77D
    You have a couple of options here.  Since you want a zoom lens, the 2 you listed are probably the 2 best "superzoom" lenses right now that you can buy.  I am looking to replace my wife's Sigma ...
  • I've had 5 Sigma lenses so far, so I'll rate them below.  I shoot Canon and these were used on either my 60D or my wife's T3i: 1.  17-70 f2.8-4 C - Great walkaround lens with excellent sharpness ...
  • LOL...I have the same feeling.  I still haven't had the chance to spend a day and just go out and shoot.  I'm hoping tomorrow will be that day.  There is a nature cove nearby, and as long as the ...
  • I know how you feel.  I didn't own that lens, but I did rent it for a Yellowstone trip on my Canon 60D and I was very pleased with the results.  It didn't do great in low light, but that was expected.
  • LOL at the gateway drug comment!  It's true though, as I don't see myself buying anything else but L lenses going forward, although I've been very happy with my Sigma 17-70 f2.8-4.  I've got some ...
  • Created discussion thread Just bought my first L lens....WOW
    Bit of a story, so bear with me. Back in August 2008, my wife and I went to Yellowstone National Park for the first time.  I had a generic 5MP point and shoot, my wife had a Minolta Maxxum 5 film ...
  • That's an interesting question.  I know many here are opposed to "super zoom" lenses, but for what they are, the current generation of them are pretty good.  The Tamron 18-400 is particularly ...
  • As has been already mentioned a few times, the 80D with the 18-135 USM Nano kit lens is an excellent start.  I currently have a 60D (looking to upgrade to the 80D) and have the 10-18 IS STM and ...
  • Yes, I did.  Looking back at it, I was probably too aggressive in some of the images.  I'm using Photoshop CC for post.
  • I actually tested my focus before the trip and found that it was front focusing just a little bit. I made the adjustments using the USB dock, tested again and everything seemed to be OK. I think my ...
