  • The. 16-35 is a full frame ultrawide lens. I wouldn't consider it on your T3i until you have much more experience using your SLR. You might really like the results that you get from your camera ...
  • Replied in copy variation
    I have used the 17-40 on full frame and on crop cameras. I like mine enough so that I don't wish to upgrade. The 17-40 has advantages in range on a crop camera, and works fine on full frame if ...
  • There are a few reasons I don't care for flash, but some are practical. I prefer using a fast prime in low light, and like the shots I get. The females in my family object to flash, even flash ...
  • Narrow fields of view that come with the 50 or 85 on a crop can produce nice photos, but I prefer the normal view of a 35 on a crop camera. This will let you get the whole body in the shot, ...
  • I like primes and zooms. I can't see one lens replacing the 35F2IS and the 85F1.8. They are different beasts. There are times when I want the range of a zoom, and other times when I want a prime ...
  • Most primes will be at their best stopped down 2 or 3 stops, but there are some exceptions. Take a look at the reviews at Photozone and Lenstip for this lens, since they will have this information ...
  • The focal length is a useful one on crop, but I would recommend a 35F2IS for low light. The Canon 35mm lens is sharp, has fast and accurate AF, and great flare resistance. F2 is way better than ...
  • On crop bodies, the 100 will give you the field of view of a 160 mm lens on full frame. This is on the narrow side for most indoor use. I don't know how much working distance you will have, but an ...
  • The zoom and 35 mm prime are very different. You can't have too many 35 mm primes! I have 3.
  • I doubt that there will be much of a difference between these 50 mm lenses once they are at F2. I have the Canon 50 F1.4 and would probably get the F1.8 STM if I were doing it right now, but read ...
  • I don't know why you are asking for the opinions of other people on travel to a mountain cabin. I really don't mean to be rude, but There is no one right answer. The correct answer depends on what ...
  • "Best" is very subjective, since best for me may not be best for you. I have limited funds, and can't imagine money not making an impact. Also, I prefer lighter and smaller lenses, and want them ...
  • Very nice and memorable baby photo. At 3', minimum focus, magnification would be X.19. I believe that this translates to approximate framing of 5" X 8" or so, a very tight head shot for adults. A ...
  • Nick5 When travelling, I usually go out with one lens for the day. I will either use a fast prime for indoor shots at a museum, or a zoom like the 17-40 when I expect to need to go very wide, like ...
  • When my grandson was a newborn, I used a 35, 50 and 85 on crop, so this translates to approximately 55, 85, and 135 in terms of field of view. There were lots of situations where the 50 was too ...
  • I use the 17-40L, so my comments should be taken with a grain of salt. If I didn't like my lens so much, I would be looking at the 16-35F4IS. All reviews have it as an excellent lens. The only ...
  • I use the 35 more than any of my other lenses. However, when traveling, I want wider. I use the 35 when I expect to shoot in low light. The 17-40L worked for me when I needed very wide. If getting ...
  • I used a 35F2 on a crop for photos of my grandson when he was a baby, but on crop. A 50 would be just about perfect, but I have no interest in apertures larger than F2 or F1.8 for that. I like ...
  • Definitely bring the 16-35F4IS. I would also bring the 24-70, but I would not bother with anything longer. I spent about 12 days in London a year ago, and went to Bath and Stonehenge. I did ...
  • I have the 24-105L and like my copy. The long end is useful in a variety of situations. However, I often wind up using a zoom for portraits/people photos at informal events. For this, the longer ...
