    The older I get the more appealing the size-weight thing becomes.

    Years ago I carried all primes because they were sharper than the zooms. With these lenses the only advantage of the prime IMO now is that they are faster. They really have become more of a...

    It sounds like my debate to buy it is the same as I had with the EF 100-400 II. I gave the 100-400 I version to my brother when I bought my first 500mm. My thinking now is to upgrade to the 600mm f/4...

    Initially the difference I see are so subtle that it might not be worthwhile for most people. The 24-70 II is going for about $1300 used, and it is an extra $1100 plus tax to switch.

    RF 24-70mm F/2.8 L IS USM Question

    So this new to just arrived. My first thought out of the box is that there is not enough savings in size and weight over the EF 24-70 II lens to matter.
    I went through a half dozen copies with B&H...

    The thing is it is the extreme fast action that I usually would use high fps.
    Neither of examples of the golf swing is acceptable IMO.
  15. Electronic Shutter and the R3, are the benefits limited?

    I have been trying to figure out what the benefit of the Electronic Shutter might be. The advertised 30 fps sounds blazing fast. But I am hearing negatives about the way electronic shutters work.

    While I believe what I posted earlier, I will say that at this level the difference between the two may not matter at all to the majority of shooters.
