Hello guys, I just recently upgraded to Canon 5D Mark IV from Canon 550D and I am currently looking for the appropriate tripod for my new, bigger, and heavier camera. My lenses are: 24-70 f/2.8L II, 16-35 f/4L, 50 f/1.2L and I'm looking to buy a telephoto lens, probably 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L II in the coming future. I also have a 430EXII and my bag is a Protactic 450AW. For my Canon 550D, I have been using Dolica TX570DS Ultra Compact Tripod with Professional Ball Head and Built-In Monopod...

Hello bros, I need to buy a general purpose zoom lens and i need to decide between this two lenses, Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM II or Canon EF 24–105mm f/4L IS II. Taking in consideration that i was planing to buy Canon 35mm 1.4 ii, and now i think i might replace it with the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM II. What do you think?

Hello, I have been wrestling with a lens decisions for many days now and am resorting to some outside counsel on the subject. I recently purchased the Sigma 24-105 f4 for my 6D and have been reasonably happy with it. My main reservations/ things I am noticing to bother me about the lens so far are: - distortion at the wide angle end. I do use the 24mm focal length quite a bit in my photography. Software are ok at fixing this so it is not exactly a huge problem but I would certainly prefer...

Hello! Can someone please help me out? I'm trying to work on being a music photographer and I need help/suggestions on what go-to zoom-in lens I should get. It would have to be good enough for outdoor and indoor lighting, pretty versatile and works well with a Canon 5D Mark iii. The only lens I have right now is a Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens and I want to finally invest in a good zoom-in lens that's really good when it comes in indoor concert shows. I was thinking about buying a Canon...

Hi folks. I bought an a7rII a few weeks ago and I want to be able to use my Canon lenses with it..., so I bought the Metabones IV adaptor at the same time I bought the camera. I also purchased a Sony e-mount 24-240 so I could test the native features of the A7rII. To my dismay, when I placed the Metabones adaptor on the camera 36 hours after I got everything and with great anticipation placed my Canon 24-70 L lens on the adaptor, nothing happened. There was no reading of the aperture, no...

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...
