Hello, I've been an enthusiastic user of Pentax DSLR for a few years. My kind of photography is primarily concert photography (and landscapes / animals during holidays). I'm using a Pentax K3 paired with : - a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 for concert photography - a Tamron 10-24 f/3.5-4.5 for landscapes - a Pentax 60-250 f/4 for animals I'm wondering if buying a low-end full frame camera such as Nikon D610 or Canon 6D would be an upgrade for concert photography especially ? A.K.A. low-light...

Hey everyone, I have a Sigma 50mm 1.4 EF mount art lens that has worked fine for years but after attaching it to a Aputure DEC Lensregain adapter the Sigma no longer properly detects on any body. I use a 6D if that helps but it doesn't work on a 5D mark iii either. Specifically the problem is you can't control the aperture anymore. Anyone experience this problem before or have advice as to what I should do? Will the Sigma lens dock help? Should I just send it in? Thanks in advance!!

Hi all! I am looking to boost the lower end. I finally got my FF wish with a Canon 6D. I am interested in night sky, hybrid lighting and landscapes, as well as some groups. Both of these lenses are apparently amazing given the positive reviews.  But I am stuck. Is the resolution, build and speed really that much useful on the Sigma than the Tamron? I see the bokeh is really amazing, and the 1.4 aperture opens the door for creative uses of thin DOF on a wide angle, something that has been...

I have decided to upgrade my equipment from a Canon T3i to a 6d and am wondering what the best cost effective lenses would be. I currently have 75-300mm f/4-5.6 , 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6, and 50mm f/1.8. I photograph newborns, toddler, families and high school portraits for family and friends. I’m often in tight quarters with newborns so I need something with a wider angle. I need quick focusing for toddlers and a lens with good bokeh for portraits. I would like to see a big difference in sharpness...

Hello.  I am the owner of a 7Dii and a photographer and Photoshop user of intermediate skill compared to folks here.  I own some good L glass, but, other than my 70-200, do not travel with L glass. I love my 7dii for all the wildlife shooting I do.  The problem is with my recent travel landscapes.  I travelled a long way to put myself in the mountains for some blue hours and sun rises.  My photos turned out pretty well, well enough that people in my life want them enlarged and framed. But for...

Given that the M5 has a dedicated exposure compensation dial, does anyone know if it does EC when shooting in Manual mode with Auto ISO? I briefly RTFM but didn't find an answer. This is a feature that I've occasionally wished for on my 70D and 6D. The 80D, 7D2, 5D4, 1DX, and 1DX2 got it, and I'm hoping the M5 did as well. Thanks!

Hi, I am going on a long exposure landscape workshop, and I have bought a ND filter, Cokin ND8,  which I naively thought meant 8 stops slower, but now I discover it is equivalent to 3 stops. I would have liked to buy a 10 stopper, but too expensive. So I am trying to work something out, and hope someone can confirm my idea, or correct me. If I have the camera in Aperture priority mode, and set the exposure to be 3 stops underexposed, and then use the 3 stop filter, will that give me the same...

I have an EOS 80D and I am looking into getting started with some astro shots. I understand that this probably isn't the best camera for taking shots of the Milky Way but that's why I am here, to see if it's possible or if I should look at another camera, like the 6D. I'm interested in picking up the Rokinon 24mm F/1.4 lens, but I have worries as the 80D is not a full frame, would this be a wise choice, would there be any draw backs using this lens with the APS-C sensor? Would I be better off...

I'm 99.95% sure that no one has ever tried to compare these two lenses, the Olympus 75-300 and Tamron 150-600mm (I'm referring to the "old" model, first generation). The reason why I'm debating between the two is that I'd like a long zoom to take pics of wildlife and surfers (300mm ff equivalent is not enough in the beaches near my home). I'm trying to decide what to buy as self-gift for Christmas + my birthday (they happen to be very close), but it's a fairly difficult choice. The Oly is...

I just bought a used Speedlite 580EX II and I'm having serious problems with it. The flash doesn't seem to work in any mode, and I'm getting different results in ETTL and Manual mode. In ETTL on the 6D's Auto+ mode my photo comes out like this: http://imgur.com/yfmRQ8B In Auto+ mode without the flash the same type of photo looks like this: http://imgur.com/ZYtIjXN When trying Manual mode on both the camera and flash the photos come out almost completely white, they're way over exposed. I've...
