Hi all- I'm looking to purchase a new lens. I do wildlife photography, shooting a range of birds. I use a crop sensor body- I'm looking at the Canon 300mm and the Sigma or Tamron 150-600mm. I haven't found the 150-600 in my buudget of $550, though, and i am considering the use of a 1.4X teleconverter on a 300mm F4. Will this combo be sharp? I know it's not all about sharpness, but also with a new aperture of 5.6, with the 670mm equivelent produce tack-sharp images (proper shutter speed and...

Hi guys- I'm looking to buy the Canon 50d and the 300mm f4L IS USM. I'd like to step up my wildlife photography game, and I think that this is the right gear for me judging by my skill level and experience. The 70-200mm F4L USM is another option, but I don't know whether or not to go with the 300mm or the 70-200mm. Since the 50d has an APS-C crop factor, the 300mm would be more like a 480mm, which is even better for tight wildlife shots. The 70-200mm might not offer that length, and I most...

Bought the M5 15-45 kit during Easter sale (price for body only is the same).  Already own the 11-22mm, 22mm, ef 50mm 1.8, ef-s 15-85mm and 55-250mm with the original M and 50d. Looking to have the original M as my astro + backup camera, M5 to be the main travel/walkabout camera.  Also planning to buy a 6d or 6d mk2 and sell the 50d for shooting events that the mirorrless can't handle (yes, moving to ff). Any suggestions on which lenses to keep?  Probably obvious that I'm more into landscape...

I've been trying to figure out what to upgrade my 50D to. Ultimately I think want that GH5(for video), but that will be a while before I can afford that, not to mention I don't think I realistically need that much camera at this point. So I was thinking the G85 w/kit lens. But now I saw some videos about the GX8 and am confused. From what I understand the GX8 is great a stills and works for video and the G85 is great for video and works at stills. I'm wanting to get more into video, but not...

Hi,  I have a very old Canon 50D and am planning to replace that with Fuji X-T2.  I have been trying to figure out Fuji's deal calendar, and I thought they would have some deals on X-T2+kit lens and even the other lenses around this time. I know there is one deal going on with the vertical grip, but apart from that there are none as far as I know. Does anyone have a guess about when the next deal would be? I would like to wait to get a good deal if possible, last year I saw there was around...

Can you use the battery for Canon 50D for Canon 70D?

Dear Canonisti, I am currently having a hefty love affair with Olympus' mirrorless M10. Nevertheless, I feel that under many circumstances my Canon gear gave me at least as nice color rendition. I mainly shot my 450D, 50D, and last 550D (T2i) in "standard" picture mode. Now I wonder: Will any modern Canon DSLR (or maybe even EOS-M) have more or less the same nice color rendition, or did things change over the years? Actually from time to time I check image galleries, e.g. here at dpreview;...

I currently shoot with a Canon 50D and am thinking about upgrading to the 80D, 6D or the 7D Mark II.  Photography is a hobby for me and I shoot mostly my kids (cross country meets, mountain biking, portraits) and landscape.  Any thoughts on whether or not upgrading from the 50D will provide me with enough benefit to warrant the cost of a new body, and if so, which DSLR do you all recommend. Thanks.

Does it take special software?  What works best? I'm seriously looking at getting an 80D and would like to know my 50D's shutter count if I decide to sell/trade it.
