Hello Everyone! As an avid landscape and cityscape photography enthusiast, I recently purchased a Canon EOS 5D Classic, in order to enter in the full frame world. I already have a (even more classic) Canon EF 28-80 f/3.5-5.6 USM, the first one back from the late 80's with metal mount. The lens is good, really, though it has some problems dealing with flare - the image goes all white and looses all contrast - and it's a preetty dark lens. The question I ask is: what lens can be a good 'bang...
I have three lenses. I can get good results from two of them. The third one, a Tamron 28-75 F/2.8, seems to have absurdly tight requirements for getting a shot in focus. I'm thinking that something is wrong with my lens copy, because I hear that other people say that they can get good results from this type of lens, and my other two lenses seem to be good. Is there a way to have the lens examined by someone who can check for problems and potentially fix them, without it costing me more than...
I'm a photojournalist currently working at a NGO, some of the places i go to with the team is kinda dark and i want a wide angle wide lens but in the same time cheap so i minimized my options to these twoPS : i can't spend more than 300 dollars on the lens
I bet this question has been asked hundreds of times, but I am a total newbie, so please... If you only had $1000 to spend on everything from dslr to filters, what would you buy? I have considered the following: (top choice so far) d7000 with 18-105mm kit lens + 50mm f/1.8g af-s FX (75mm on the d7000) + Lowepro slingshot 200aw + 2 SanDisk 32gb memory cards same as above except a 35mm f/1.8 DX instead of the 50mm FX d7100 body only + 50 or 35mm f/1.8 + Lowepro slingshot 200aw + 2 SanDisk 32gb...

Hi, My goal is to nail some top quality images and I'm thinking my lenses are what's lacking. That means tat it's time to leverage things. Thus the critical issue. Since I'm not being paid YET to shoot billboards, magazine covers etc (and can always rent if a project requires with upfront payment)..... I'm thinking of leveraging gear to get the most tack sharp images regardless of sensor.Goal: - Sharp / Fast / No Brainer KitBest Lenses / Imaging combination (through leveraging) Without...
I will be traveling to Hawaii next month, to the islands of Kauai and Maui, and the Big Island, and was looking for suggestions on how to shoot in a couple of situations. Camera is SLT A57 (hence posting to this forum). I will be taking a helicopter ride around Kauai and am looking for suggestions on how to best capture the landscape, which I hear is stunning. I have a 70-200 f2.8 from Sigma but it's too heavy to be lugging around, especially on a helicopter ride. The other three options are...
Trying to decide about my Tamron 28-75 F/2.8. Should I keep it or upgrade to Nikon 24-120 F/4 or may be new Tamron 24-70VC. This one was shot raw and processed with CNX and resized to 25% of the original image. --MarShim---------------------------------------------------It is easier to stay out than get out.
Hi, I'm looking to put down the EF-S 18-55mm soon. The IQ, focal range, focus, and maximum aperture isn't working for me. It's not bad though, from 18mm to 55mm. It's just the aperture, most of all. I'm looking for a cheap lens upgrade (sorry no L glass like the 24-105, 24-70, 17-40. I would buy it, but I'm looking for something cheap for now!). Looking for a good walkaround lens, that gives me landscape and standard telephoto portraiture/low light photos. I'm really looking for: 1....

I was looking around for a fixed aperture standard zoom and had almost settled on the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 lens for my Nikon D5100. and now it has come up with a newer 24-70 VC lens that costs more than double. USD 1200 agaist USD 440 for the older one Is it worth investing in teh new lens or rather can anyone help me with understanding what I would "stand to lose" by sticking with the older model?
