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...

My first thread/question! I usually just read and read and read until I find an answer, but I have done so many searches and can not find the answer... Where my smart people at? I want to shoot video in continuous autofocus with a zoom at 2.8 aperture, on my sony a7Rii. Is this even possible? Awhile back I mounted a tamron 24-70 2.8 canon mount to an a7s, but was locked at 3.5 aperture for autofocus in video. Has this changed for the a7rii? Will it still lock at f/3.5? What if i use...

Hi People, First off, I wanna just say that even though I am a new member of the community, I have been checking out your forums for quite some time now to find a specific answer to my following question. I know all the data regarding subjects related, what I could really use now are impressions and your unbound feedback. I am considering going for some semi-pro gear now (from a 40D w/ 17-85 f4-5.6, 70-300 4-5.6), I am getting very passionate about this topic, in the future I might wanna go...

What should be my next purchase / which order should I get the following items? I am itching to spend somewhere between $1000 or $2000 to make my kit more wedding or event ready soon, and plan out future purchases. I would prefer to spend only $1000 now, but like anyone, can find the money for the things I really need uhm - want. I don’t currently shoot weddings, but would like to develop the skills and kit to be able to do so. I like shooting small light primes, but it seems zooms make for...
