  • I agree. I was just trying to see if I really need to spend 4 times the money. After spending insane amounts of time on Pixelpeeper.com, it is clear the answer is 16-35. That will leave me with ...
  • Thanks!!! I had clearly thought the first pairing but not the second. Makes a lot of sense.
  • I have been a two body shooter for quite sometime now. I went from all full frame (2 6Ds) to a 6D and a 7D2. No intent of going back to full frame all the way again. Each body has a purpose and ...
  • That is what I am thinking. I currently carry the 6D with 24-105, 7D with either 50 or 85 for candids/portraits. If I add 16-35, the 24-105 might move to 7D in the two body config, and remain on ...
  • Created discussion thread Ultra wide zoom
    I currently use a manual focus 14mm 2.8 for the limited ultra wide needs I have. I am getting more into it though. Since I have both a 6d and a 7D 2, I can consider getting either the 10-18 STM or ...

  • You are simply awesome. Given the ISO you mention, I suspect this lighting is even worse than what I would expect to encounter in the theater. So, the 100-400 should do the job. Thanks a lot. Much, ...
  • I had the 135 f2. Great, great, great lens. I love that focal length for portraits even though most find it too long. I gave it up to finance the 100-400 realizing that my 85 1.8, while not as ...
  • That is exactly what I was hoping to hear. Now, if I need 1/300th shutter speed to freeze action, would you call that fast moving? Even if this is considered fast, assuming the 100-400 focuses ...
  • Thanks. With my old 70-200 on the 6D, I could almost fill the frame. Assuming I can find the same seating, the 70-200 would be perfect given that I now have a crop sensor body to put it on....if I ...
  • Nah...no professional ballet. At least not yet. Just a proud dad of a 6th grader.
  • Hello there, About a year ago, I switched from my m43 system to a pair of 6Ds. During the last year, I realized that I needed something longer than my 70-200 F4 L and a better focussing body than ...
  • Actually, there was no convincing involved. They sent a shipping label even without my asking. Doubt it was my charming personality that did it......
  • Here's the update. Camera was sent to Canon in Newport News on Tuesday evening. I had it back in my hands Friday morning.....barely 60 hours after it was mailed. They paid overnight shipping both ...
  • I no longer live in NJ. Moved to TX over summer. Anyhow, the camera was overnighted to Canon in Newport News yesterday. Canon paid for shipping. I have already received their response that they ...
  • You misunderstand me. The camera is clearly going to Canon tomorrow. It will be fixed. The question is: would you keep it after that or replace it. I have no experience with Canon's warranty ...
  • I just took anoher picture in daylight just to make sure it was not a high ISO problem. No joy. I agree with everyone that the sensor is messed up. What should I expect now? I am sure Canon will ...
  • Created discussion thread Is my 6D broken?
    So I just took out the 6d to take some halloween pics with the 35 F2. As soon as I took the first picture, I knew something was wrong. It was off in exposure, white balance and basically just ...
  • I did this few years back at Yellowstone. My answer: 2 Think Tank Digital Holsters each with a body and a mounted lens. Both holsters mounted on a Think Tank belt. Everything is easily accessible ...
