I was in a local shop to get a new Sigma 50 1.4 ART for my 5D and 70D.I went through 3 copies of the lenses and only one of the them autofocus well enough on the 70D without AFMA. Unfortunately that copy is part of a kit (with Sony mount converter). I couldn't buy on its own. The other two copies AF are off on both the 70D and 5D. My question here is that 1. Shall i just grab any copy and send the lens and cameras to Sigma for calibration right after purchase.. 2. Or shall I at least get one...

I have bought a canon 70D last year and have been using it with the kit 18-135 STM and 50 1.8 STM. I get good stills with the prime lens but with the kit lens so so. I liked 70D for its video autofocus and silent recording. Recently, I bought sigma 17 50 2.8 and am not very happy with it. I want to sell it off and stick to primes for stills and kit lens for videos. To avoid lens changing on field I am thinking to go for a back up camera. And I also wanted to experience a FF camera. Now that...

My three years camera started a problem. It is not shooting after the lens focuses. It happened with two zoom lenses,  24-70 and 70-200 so it's not lens related. After I touch (move) the distance or focus ring on the lens everything goes back to normal till the next time which comes soon after few shots. Any ideas? Thanks. Peter --**********

I took a few shots with my Canon 5d mkiii today and noticed some bright pink marks showing up in the same place on all of the photos.The marks are pink with a bit of blue around them.

I used the manual sensor cleaning option to open up the mirror so i could have a look at the sensor.  On inspection of the sensor it looked spotless. I've tried the othe sensor...

Hi, this is a bit of a strange situation so I'm really hoping someone can help me out. I shoot a lot of concerts, theatre, etc. where flash is not required but generally haven't done much indoor portrait and private event photography. So I've really only started using flash this past year and am still getting the hang of it. At the moment, my main setup is a 5D III with a Speedlite 380ex using the hot shoe with a basic plastic diffuser. I had a short shoot in a dimly lit room today (just a...
