Initially i planned to buy canon 17-55mm f2.8 but recently my friend mentioned sigma 17-50mm f.2.8 which is significantly lower in price but im confused now which one should i get as i could save money if i buy sigma. The reason i want to get this focal length is because currently i have canon 85mm f1.8 is usm and when i take indoor shots especially badminton, using this lens is too close to my subject and im have to back of a bit. The extra 5 focal length it doesnt matter to me but what im...
Hey Does anyonw have any experience with wide angle conversion lenses on the Canon 17-55 f2.8 lens? Somthing like this: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/4113usm-rhL.jpg The thing is, the lens have a 77mm diameter and im afraid it will further suffer bad vignetting. Ive used one on a 18mm lens with a 49mm ring, and it surprisingly well. Its quite expensive if its really crap. Im a light backpacker and just came across this, and wondered if i could a few ounces of weight.
Last month, after much agonising, I purchased a Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens, which I couldn't be more pleased with. I can scarcely believe the difference from my previous 18-55mm IS II. Over the weekend, though, I noticed something odd at 17mm – the lower right corner seemed quite smeared on one particular test shot (I won't post the full image as it has no redeeming features whatsoever...). I tried turning the camera upside down and taking the shot again (the image on the right) and the...

I must begin by apologising as, looking around, there have been quite a few threads comparing these two lenses – there are just a couple of things, though, that I haven't been able to find out and I'd be very grateful if someone with experience of the 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 lens might be able to help, please? I'd also been considering the 17-55 f/2.8.As it's such a long post (sorry), I thought I might be best to get my questions out of the way early on:• Does the 15-85 feel unbalanced on an...

I'm taking a trip with a group of photographers over to Death Valley next Friday for the weekend. I rarely get the chance to explore photography in an area like this, so I'm very keen on trying out different types of photography for the trip. With that said, I'm bringing my Canon Rebel Xti with the kit lens and the new 50mm f/1.8 lens, along with a tripod. However, I know that more equipment will be needed. Thus, are there any advice or suggestions on lenses and equipment I should bring with...
Hi, I'm just wondering what everyone thinks about this, this is my first post so bear with me. I currently have a canon 60D with a 70-200mm f4 L IS USM, and an 18-135mm IS kit lens. I'm looking at getting the 17-55mm lens to replace the 18-135mm as a walk around lens, but I'm not sure if it is worth it. I can get it new for about £395 (from a reputable seller), which I'm lead to believe is very cheap for this lens (this price does include a cashback offer from canon). It also comes with a...
Hi thereI am a beginner by every means, had my 650D for around a year now. Know about settings and aperture and iso and everything.When it comes to deciding between a fast lens (2.8 or 1.8 and so on) and another lens say 3.5 or f4 and higher. The latter being better in low light photography. Is that just low light hand held? I see many incredible photos taken with the 17-55 and many say due to its 2.8 aperture its better than say a slower 15-85 in some instances. All the great pictures I see...

Our school archives is looking to purchase a DSLR to serve two purposes: First, we would use it to digitize (i.e. photograph) a collection of large scrapbooks by mounting the camera above them on a camera stand, then using remote capture to view the shot on a monitor and take the picture. The largest scrapbooks are about 28"x22" and we would try to supplement the ambient light in the room with some work lights on stands. Second, we would use it to film speakers in two different contexts --...
