My wife and I are a photography team and we have rented the 24-70mm 2.8 II a total of 3 times and the images are always blurry. They are no where near as sharp as any other lens we own or rent. Does anyone else have this issue? Or have we just rented the same bad lens 3 times?
I am planning to buy a tripod for my Canon 6D full frame camera and 24-70mm 2.8 II/70-200mm 2.8L IS II lens. I will use an external flash whenever needed. After going through several online forums and opinions I have closed on the following combination - Manfrotto MT055CXPRO3 legs SIRUI K-20X head Please suggest if this combination is good for my gear. I was also tempted towards MeFoto Globetrotter but learned that it won't be able to support the weight of my lenses.

Hello, I just purchased a new Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L ll USM and have two concerns. I'd appreciate any advice or insight. 1. Zoom collar is very tight. Compared to my other lenses from Canon and past experience with Nikon the collar takes much more effort to rotate throughout the zoom range. 2. When rotating the zoom collar there is a pronounced squeak from 24-35. It occurs when rotating in either direction. Is this normal for this lens? Should I return it to POS (BH Video) for...
Hi, I have been lurking here for a while and decided this is the best forum for my question. I shoot a lot of rodeo using my 7DM2 and a 70-200 2.8 L IS II. I love it and it has worked very well. Up until now most of my work has been at a typical distance. I have the opportunity to work from the shoots at a bull riding event. Being right on top of the bulls and riders as they get ready to go puts me right on top of the action. The 70-200 is way to bulky and my kit 18-135 IS STM is way tooooo...

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...

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?...

Hello folks, I am looking for settings to use at high speed motorbike races, particularly which autofocus case I should be using? I have it on AI Servo, case 3 (bicycle) and a shutter speed of 1/4000 - is this fast enough? I have also set up two back buttons to focus with one being single point expanded and the other full auto 65-points - both on servo mode. I am new to back-button focusing and it seems to be hit and miss with a Canon 24-70 f/2.8L II USM lens I was using. So my questions...
