  1. FS: EF 70-200/2.8L IS USM (first version)

    UW12xx date code; barely used, in pristine condition--no cosmetic blemishes, save for the usual faint wear marks on the lens hood. Glass is clean, operates perfectly. All accessories and original...

    Yes, this happened to me about two years ago, but I was quoted and charged about only $130. They replaced one of the sub-barrel components that got scratched up from twisting the zoom ring while...

    The entrance and exit pupils are not something that actually exist as physical objects. Only the aperture stop itself is a real object. The pupils are simply the images of the aperture stop as...

    I download directly from the camera, using EOS Utility, for a number of reasons:

    I rarely shoot with more than one CF card. Not removing the card from the camera means I minimize the risk of...

  7. Re: How many points do you have on Canon's new "Points Qualification System"?

    62, but if I get around to selling two of my lenses, that would bring me down to 46.

    If it were truly "useless" in the sense that the light from marginal rays at f-numbers faster than f/2 are lost at the sensor, you wouldn
  11. Re: Q: What is the terminal velocity of a 24-105 f/4 L?

    I calculate that the terminal velocity of an EF 24-105/4L IS USM under these circumstances is roughly 72 miles per hour, or 32.23 m/s. My calculation is based on the following assumptions:

    From what I can see in the charts, the conclusion I draw is that the extender itself is what facilitates the performance gain. Compare the 2x II against the 2x III, and you can immediately see a...

    In a nutshell: yes, it is normal for this lens, as well as almost any fast-aperture design (i.e., faster than f/2). It
  15. Re: Maximum Magnification - different for EF lenses on crop bodies?

    No. (Lateral) magnification is image height divided by object height.


    Loosely speaking, the size of an object in the scene as projected by the lens, divided by the actual size of the object, is...

    Re: Canon f1.8

    I went from using the EF 85/1.8 USM to the EF 85/1.2L II USM.


    The 85/1.8 did 95% of what I wanted. I still sometimes regret selling it. My copy was remarkably sharp and there really wasn

    Re: EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM - No IS

    Image stabilization was invented by Canon and was first released into production in 1995 with the EF 75-300/4-5.6 IS USM. The technology proved so useful that it was soon implemented for the EF...

    Re: EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM - No IS

    There are no lenses faster than f/2 that have an IS unit. The sole exception is the EF 200/2L IS. All other lenses with IS are f/2.8 or slower. This in itself makes the 200/2L a rather remarkable...

    If the spot shows up when that specific lens is mounted, but not when using other lenses, then it must be dust in the lens and not the sensor. Not many people realize this, but dust in the lens *can*...

    The AF speed of a lens depends on multiple factors:
