Hi From various forums I heard that the Canon 75-300mm kit lens is one of the worst lenses ever produced, so I think I should upgrade out of that. I am personally very disappointed with its image quality, but I also don't want to spend more than $200 on an upgrade so L lenses are out of the question.  I was considering either a Sigma 70-300mm APO or Tamron 70-300mm to replace the Canon kit lens. Both seem pretty well made, I am just curious which has the best optical quality. The Sigma costs...

Hi I currently have the Canon SL1, and have found it to be quite a disappointment with the dynamic range and image quality. I am looking to upgrade to either a 50D or a 7D, and I wanted to know how the image quality would be effected and what real benefits does a 7D have over a 50D? I don't have a very large budget at all and I know these cameras are outdated, but I want something that produces better images than that of my SL1. Thank you

Hello all and thank you for any responses: I currently own the 50D and don't plan on upgrading to full frame in the next 10 years. I own the 10-18 stm, have the 18-135mm IS but plan swapping out for the tamron 17-50 XR di II f/2.8, have the 55-250 stm, and the 50mm f/1.8, and I do have a macro extension tube set. I am mostly interested in people (portraits), landscape, low-light (indoor sports/shows/parties), macro, and wildlife. I currently use the 50mm f/1.8 for portraits and any low-light...

I see that our neighbours to the south have nice rebates on the 7D Mark II ($300 on the body) but no such love in Canada.  Questions: Anyone know if Canon Canada has any plans on offering the same rebates? Could these rebates be a result of Americans purchasing in Canada because of the value of our dollar? Any substance to the rumour that prices in Canada are going up April 1st as a result again of our crappy dollar? Any insight appreciated...  :)  As it stands now there is no way I am...

Hi !  Long time reader, 1st time poster.  I'm having some trouble making the transition from high school soccer to high school hoops.  Over half my pictures are blurry.  Ugghh.  I'm shooting with a Canon 50D, 70-200 2.8mm, in Av, at ISO 2000, with a single focus center point.  I've played with the AF button on the back, but it seems that every time I catch a great action shot, I wind up with too much motion blur.  Would appreciate any/all suggestions or advice.  Thanks !!  And happy New Year.

I have and love a canon 50d with various lenses.  Lately I don;t use it as much and grab my G11 because of the weight of the 50d.  There is a black friday deal Canon has for a Rebel T5 for $199, with the 18-55mm lens(  not important to me since i have one)  The weight of the T5 is significantly less than the 50d   and would make walking around with m favorite zoom lens easier.   Of course I would still have the 50d.  I had thought of moving to the 70d, but the price of the T5 is very...

Apologies for the long story, but I thought I’d put in all the details, as I’ve been thinking about it for a while and I’m just going in circles. I’m thinking of upgrading to a Canon 70D or possibly 700D/650D, if it makes more sense for me. I currently own a Canon 50D and Canon 5D mk1 paired with EF 85mm 1.8. I used to have a EF-S 24mm 2.8, which I sold with the aim of buying the EF 28mm f2.8 IS. In my mind, the two lenses will give me all the flexibility I need: 135mm – APS-C + 85mm 1.8 85mm...

Just wondering if anyone is familiar with the part of Spyder software called SpyderProof? It's the final screen presented at the end of calibration, allowing you to view sample images while turning calibration on & off. Would like to know if there is a command to directly launch this part of the software to review the calibration by eye at any time. I know that calibration can be turned on & off via the system tray utility, but direct access to the SpyderProof section of the software would be...

My understanding is that you can only spot meter off of the center point. If I meter off of the center point but then want to focus off of a different point, is this possible? If I hit the AE lock and then try to change focus points, I lose AE lock.
