I shoot a lot of outdoor portraits with my Canon 450D (Rebel XSi) and Canon 70-200 f4L IS USM and the results are very nice when the focus is right on. But only 20 to 40% of my shots are tack sharp, most of the time when my subject is not moving. The action shots and kids portraits are generally oof by a little bit. I am convinced that my techique is good because I never shoot with the 9 focus points on auto, I'm always selecting one of the spots. I've also read that you could calibrate your...

About three months back I sent in my Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens in for repair to one of the two repairers Canon recommends in the UK. The lens had issues with sharp focus on distant objects, possibly caused by a drop. I've just received the lens back for the third time (the first time I'm pretty sure nothing had been done to the lens and the second time the issue was still present) and it still seems to have issues at low ƒ numbers. For a sanity check, please take a look at these two...

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...

Hi everyone, I am hoping you can help me with selecting a lens. Does anyone have any advice on using a 24-70mm f/4 L lens on a canon 7D for astrophotography? I have a Rokinon 10mm on it’s way in the mail, and I’m deciding which other lens to get for night landscape/astrophotography. I have my eye on the Rokinon 24mm f/1.4 lens. I own a 50mm f/1.8 that I'm going to try out at night. But I’m pulled to the 24-70mm for the versatility in zoom. I am not quite sure what f/4 L means, however, and if...
I'm putting together the last third of my trinity soon, and I'm having trouble deciding between the Canon 24-70L f/2.8 (II) and the 24-70L f/4 IS. I know there's a metric ton on this already, but I've researched until my head hurts and need some clarity on a couple things. Weight and cost aren't primary concerns, and I'm not an event pro. Either lens looks sharp enough for my needs. -When I got the 70-200, I knew I needed a f/2.8 because I would primarily be shooting moving things. -For the...
I'm trying to decide between the 24-70 f/4 L IS and the 24-105 f/4 L IS. I'm leaning towards the former, mainly because of the physical size and weight. There are times when I hand my 7D to my wife for some photos and she always complains about it when I have my 70-300 L IS lens attached. I have a 17-40 f/4 L also. However, I'm needing something in the middle - both of those aforementioned lenses fit the bill. But - I'm seeing that the 24-70 has a "Hybrid IS". I've not heard of that before...
Hi Guys, Need your expert advice about buying a Canon 24-70 F4 lens. since have already a Sigma 24-105 F4 Art lens. the results are very good but it's heavy and takes me a lot of thought before travelling with this lens. so I was considering the Canon 24-70 F4 lens for portraits and as a general zoom lens. so my question 1-is the Canon 24-70 better for portraits than the sigma 24-105 art? 2- which is it lighter Canon 24-70 or the 24-105? 3- is my purchase adding value lens wise? thanks for...
