Just got my 5D4 on Friday and 7D2 was my prime sports body, but I am going to break in my 5D4 as a new sports prime with the 7D2 as the backup  I planned on the Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2  as my goto , but after watching a few vids, I am seeing folks like the135 F2 for indoor sports due to it's faster focus. I could always put the 70-200 on the 7D2 or should I use the 24-70 G2 on it for the group and wider shots? Has anyone shot indoor sports with the 135  on the 5D4 or any Canon FF.? --A purist at...

I have a wedding booked for May and of course a combination of indoor/ outdoor. I have been shooting my 7D2 with a 7D backup in the past, but have picked up a 6D2 for my studio and love it. So, I know it will be my prime for the wedding with the 7D2 as my new b/u. (I use this as my prime sports body) Rather than purchase a wide angle 20mm or less, I would think of using the Tamron 24-70 on the 6D2 being a full frame for the groups  and either my 70-200 2.8 or a 135mm f2 prime on my 7D2 for...

Hi there!Primarily aiming this question at present or past 135mm f2l users, although feel free to chip in..Basically I'm an enthusiast shooting friends and family and seeking to achieve improved separation between the subjects and the background (mainly head&shoulders, occasionally waist-up).Out of the full-frame lenses I own, in my view I've had good results in this area with all of them: 35mm f/2 IS (full body), 50mm STM (waist-up), 85mm 1.8 (h&s), 100mm 2.8 macro (non-L: waist-up, h&s) and...

Hi all, so i have a 5d4 along with 3 primes: a 35Lii, 85L 1.4, and the 135L. I want to invest in a 24-70 or a 70-200 as my next lens, but I am wondering if it is a bit redundant to have the 135 since i already have the 85l and if i get the 70-200 i will have that focal range covered. I love my 135 as it was my very first pro grade lens and I have taken some of my best photos with it. I do mainly portraits and weddings, so what do you think i should do?

Hi Everyone, I am planning to purchase a camera that fall in a budget between 50,000 to 60,000  (in Indian Rupees). My cousins have suggested me to go for CANON 60D. But when I checked in the showrooms and retail stores, I got to know that the production has been stopped for this model. Hence, I checked for some other models and found CANON 750D in a slightly higher budget. Well, I wanted to clarify on certain things :-| 1. I am pretty confused about the two opinions/suggestions I hear when I...

Hello everyone again, My last question to you all (for now).... I'm wanting to buy myself a long lens. I currently have a 24-70 f/2.8 mk ii I will only be using a long lens occasionally and would prefer a smaller and more discreet lens than any of the big, white 70-200/70-300/70-400 zooms. (tho the 70-200 f4 is seems a possibility because its not "too" huge). My options seem to be something like the 100mm f2.8 L.......but I've tried it out and because I'm not massively interested in the macro...

AFTER PROCESSING - COLOR CORRECTED WITH GRAY CARD  THIS IS UNTOUCHED  I am not sure if I am over doing this and I'd really appreciate any advice to make post processing acceptable.

I'm switching my lens collection around, and would love some sage wisdom on the matter. I currently shoot food photography, portraits, and headshots as a hobby, making a little money on the side here and there. My main food lens/body combo is the Tamron 90mm Macro (non IS (VC) version) and a 5d mkiii. I am ready to upgrade to the Canon 100mm Macro IS F/2.8L, as I don't get nearly as many keepers as I'd like to shooting handheld when I'm not using lights. I think the IS will help a great...

Hi forum, I like to ask you people's opinion regarding a possible lens purchase of mine. I quite recently bought an EOS 6D as addition to my old trusty EOS 40D. My standard zoom is the 24-70mm f4 I also own a 85mm f1.8 and a 70-200mm f4. On the 40D I really loved the 85mm giving me an equivalent field of view of a 135mm on FF. The 85mm still is a great portrait lens for bust portraits but i do miss a dedicated lens for head shots. Of course I can use my 70-200mm f4 for that purpose and the...

Just bought a 6D with 24-105mm f4 L zoom, very happy with it. However, I am thinking of switching to all prime lenses as my work shifts away from fine art to more portraits. As I struggle with the cost and the desire to get the initial grouping of focal lengths (3, maybe 4 lenses to start) somewhat right for my style, I was puzzled by the effect of the change in focal length zooming in from 24-50mm being much more pronounced than going out from 105-70mm (I was trying to get an idea of which...
