On article iPhone 8 Plus sample gallery (195 comments in total)

I have the iphone6s plus and I use it for all online sales such as ebay. these guys who say iPhone only for social media really don't know what they are talking about but little surprise there.

cale johnson: @Jeff Keller writes, "Some of the telephoto options include the EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM and the EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 IS STM. If you bought the camera body-only, then the first lens is the better choice, as it covers a longer range and is a bit faster at the wide end, (very) slightly aiding low light performance."

This statement isn't entirely true. The 18-135mm covers a range of 117mm. The second lens, 55-250mm, covers a longer range, specifically 195mm. The second lens also reaches longer, 250mm vs 135mm.

I understood what he meant.

dansclic: Affordable is not the right word.
The nikon d610 is affordable. A 1200/1500 USD full frame dslr would be affordable, not a 2000 usd one.

not true at all

Albert Valentino: Excellent. Love the starbursts

Bummer man. these lights have since been upgraded to LED and they are crisp white and don't look as good.

sh10453: Thanks for this report. A great lens to have. It covers the rage of 5 wide angle lenses!

I still shoot with my original 16-35mm f/2.8 L (call it mark I).
I love that lens, and I have no intention to spend over $2,000 to upgrade because I don't think I'd get my money's worth upgrading.

Canon's L glass is very much in a league of its own.

even if you don't want a new prime? i'm selling my f4 IS and 14L II and replacing it with this lens which will give me many more options for milkway.

LarryK: The mark II was not a "fantastic piece of glass".

sure it was. it was the best choice in its day

In reply to:

David Stephen: And that's why you make a Mk III. They should buy back the Mark II versions or offer a trade in + a little cash program. Those side by side examples are embarrassing.

yeah don't hold your breath the II was the best option in its day but things do change

Matsu: Nikon should take notice ASAP. They haven't updated their 17-35 in ages, and they should because this is a crucial lens, more so than either of the 14-24 and 24-70. Don't get me wrong, all of the 14-24, 24-70 and 70-200 lenses are excellent, but they require a 3 lens load out if you're interested in covering ultrawide-normal-tele lengths.

Canon offers a way to bridge that same span with only two lenses, which can make shooting an event, or travelling, massively easier for those people that work with two bodies. As long as you have a 35mm and 70mm option, you can pretty easily get a normal perspective shot by simply stepping in our out, and you can always throw a small 50mm in your bag for next to no cost or weight penalty.

bu...but....but Nikon is behind Sony now

TerrificShot Photography: Yes, it looks Canon made substantial improvement over the previous version II (which is an outstanding lens). Reading at the reviews posted, Canon improves the overall sharpness (especially in the corners, this was a weakness of version II), distortion and flare control.

The amazing sharpness could be the reason for the upgrade.

Now, I dont really care about the F2.8. Anyway, who shoot landscape or architecture with such aperture? :)

nowadays many landscapers also shoot milk way, which requires f2.8. in fact I just bought this lens and it will take the place of my 16-35L f4 and 14L II.
