I am looking into testing the calibration on a couple of my lenses.  I have a Canon 80d and I am looking to test calibration on my 24-105mm F/4 L and 70-200mm F/4 L IS.  My question is about distance from lens to target.  Recommended distance is 25-50x min focal length.  Do I account for the 1.6 crop when testing?  In other words when testing the 24-105mm do I test from 24mm x 50 or from the 38mm x 50 distance?  Thanks for any advice.

I've got some older L glass - 24-105L and 100-400L, both Mk 1, which belonged to my late father.  They don't get used too hard and seem to be working fine for now, though I might get the 24-105 serviced soon. There's an auction coming up in the UK with a couple of bits of older Canon kit for sale - one lot is a 7D bundled up with an 85 f1.8 and a 430 EX, whilst the other lot is a 70-200L f2.8 IS Mk I. I called up a Canon Service Centre to check the price of servicing this kit if I bought it,...

Hello I'm thinking of upgrading my 18-155 Kit lens  that I got with my Canon 70D and I was wondering if it is worth upgrading to a EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens or a EF 24-105mm f/4.0 L IS USM Lens.  I have about £600 to spend. Any thoughts or advise would be welcome.

Dear all, I got back into photography after a ten-year hiatus and I am rebuilding my kit. I bought a Canon 5D Mark III and the lens I have dreamed of owning since at least 2001, the 16-35/2.8 USM. My interest lies in doing journalistic work and I love the aesthetics of close-quarters photography, which I came to appreciate first with the work of the founders of VII agency. On the list for the future is the 70-200/2.8 IS USM as a must-have lens for reportage. My dilemma lies in what to get as...

I'm new to photography and I'm still figuring out everything my camera can do. How do I take pictures of moving objects without it blurring? For example, someone running, flying birds, basketball players taking a shot, etc. I have a Canon 6D and use the 24-105 f4 lens. I'm not sure what mode and other settings I should be shooting in. Shutter priority? AI Servo? Continuous shots, etc etc

The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II is a beautiful lens, I would love to own it if it weren't $2000. I shoot indoor/outdoor fashion photography and am looking for an affordable go-to lens for my FF 1DS mark iii. My budget is about $700. Does anyone have any suggestions for some sharp glass that could fit the bill or be a good alterative to the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II? I've looked into Canon's 24-105 f/4L but have heard more negatives than positives on it. Would vintage glass be a good option?...

I currently own a 6D with a Canon 24-105 F4 and a Cannon 50mm 1.8.  I really want to add a wide angle and can't afford to purchase the 16-35 so I was going to get the Canon 17-40 f4 which i have heard great things about. My question is does it pay to sell/trade in my Canon 50mm to help go towards purchase of the 17-40. I usually only shoot landscape and as of now its just a hobby.  Any thoughts,comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  thanks

I have a 5D Mark III that's about 6 months old and has about 7500 exposures on it (firmware version 1.3.3). Recently I have had a problem where the auto exposure has been dramatically wrong when moving from bright subjects to dark or vice versa, almost like the auto exposure was "stuck" on the old subject. E.g., moving from a sunlight shot indoors, the indoor exposure is almost black. This problem seems to continue until I notice it in the LCD and press the "review" button. That seems to...

I'm planning a trip out to see a few National Parks early this summer. Major stops include Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Little Bighorn among other sites. I've got 3 lenses in my everyday rotation, but my go to lens is my Canon 70-200 F4L as I take lots of pics of birds in my backyard when relaxing at home. I'm shying away from that lens when flying as I'm wanting to travel light. Does anyone think a 24-105 would be sufficient? Oh, I almost forgot, I've got a cheap/midrange Tamrom 2X...
