How long have you been using it? Does it seem to be a problem or too heavy for the zooming in and out that it will harm the camera? At what zoom distance do you seem to get the best results between 24-600mm? Do you think the 250D would have been better? Closest and farthest distances from the subjects? Thanks for taking the time to answer Richard

I was thinking of getting one of these lenses. I know there are a couple of threads about close-up lenses but I didn't see a comparison of the two. And the postsings where over half a year ago and would appreciate hearing about how they have performed now that some have been using them for awhile now. Also would a 77mm with step up ring produce better results than a 72mm? I know there is some weight to this does it seem to harm the zoom lens? Also does a 500D perform better than a 250D for...

Hello team, I know this subject has been beat to death but here I am revisiting it - any intel would be greatly appreciated.  I finally upgraded from a little Rebel t1i to a 70D.  I extensively researched what lenses were must haves and decided to get a 15-85 and 55-250.  The wide angle is pretty important to me as I take real estate photos and the range of the 250 is nice for wildlife and what not.  I also have a nifty 50 for when I one day take the time to learn portraiture.  I haven't had...

Hi all, I recently pre-ordered a A7III and looking forward to my first full frame camera. Coming from a Canon 500D, I'm expecting great things! I used to have a 10-18mm with my APS-C body to take interior design shots. Can you recommend a simple (all manual/no electronics is fine) wide angle lens for me? I don't really take many of these sort of shots so not looking for an expensive Sony one, but would like to try perhaps a vintage lens that would also encourage me to by more creative? My...

Hello everyone, I got into photography a few months ago and I absolutely love it! I'm still very new though, so forgive my ignorance and lack of proper terminology. I bought a second-hand Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 SP Di VC USD recently and want to get into macro photography. Someone recommended me the Canon 500D close-up lens to use together with my new Tamron lens to mimic a "true" macro lens. However, I can't find a Canon 500D close-up lens that corresponds with the 62mm filter size of my...

Hello everyone, I am have been using canon 500D so far. But now I want to own a canon one camera from |d50 to d80| series because of their built, and I like using their design as it is easy for me. I am thinking to buy second hand camera for it. But I am not sure what should I choose. I am thinking that my budget would allow me for D60, but is it worth to save up and go for better one? Or should I buy D50 and save some money for lens(I will buy start to save money for new lens). is difference...

This diagram is from http://www.eos-magazine.com/articles/macro/closefocus.html and I am not sure if the calculations are OK for the close-up lenses. The correct values for 500D would be 31 - 50 cm, and for 25D they would be 19 - 25 cm. How the values were calculated by the author in this article? The formulas on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Close-up_filter clearly explain that the maximum distance of any lens with a 500mm close-up lens is exactly 50cm, and not 65cm as in the article. For...

When walking around with my EOS 500D, I always leave it switched on, relying on the auto power off feature to save battery, and trigger half-press to wake it up.  My new EOS 5M has the same feature, however I have found that no matter how I carry it, I theorize that the proximity sensor on the viewfinder which makes it switch between LCD display and EVF when you hold it to your face is constantly activating as it swings or moves around while I'm carrying it, never actually allowing it to go...

I am moving up from an entry level 500d and want to take advantage of FF. I want to use camera ranging from behind the scenes to Astro-photography. I am not professional, but envisage it being semi pro in the future. That is a while away, in the mean time shall I make do with a new 6d ii or go with older 5d iii. I want to invest in good lens at f2.8, as I need low light performance, hence I don’t think I can stretch to 5d iv, so I am happier with better glass. i also want to future proof...

Howdy, I have a T1i that I've had for many years. All of a sudden, the camera will randomly not respond when I press the button to focus/take a picture. If I then zoom in or out a bit and try again, most times it will decide to take the picture. I am trying it right now with the 18-55 lens the camera came with. If I zoom all the way in or out and then slowly start to zoom little by little and press the button halfway each time, eventually it will not respond. It doesn't focus, doesn't beep to...
