    Re: 2010 PMA, A Sigma Fest

    The more I look at the new 85mm f1.4 the more I want to get one and see how it performs. the 50mm f1.4 EX has set a good example at a very reasonable cost. I would expect the new 85mm f1.4 to perform...

  5. Re: 18MP, 1080p HD Movies, ISO 6400: Canon redefines the boundaries of the consumer DSLR with the EOS 550D

    I am expecting the 60D to be similar in functionality to the Rebel but built close to the 7D. It will be interesting to see if Canon gives the 60D 18MP would it still be able to shoot at 6FPS. IMO I...

    Re: How long do lenses last?

    My old EF 70-210mm f4 lens (one of the 1st AF EF mount lenses converted directly from FD lenses in 1987) still works fine, though I don't use it anymore. My friend's 300/2.8L IS has been heavily used...

    Re: EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

    The FTM charts look pretty promising. I must see myself how much Canon actually improved on something which is already amazing. But for $2500? I think I'll first upgrade my 50D to a FF camera and be...

    Re: Condensation - To worry or not to worry

    That is right. I have been shooting at a temperature about 0 F a good number of times. There is no problem to bring the camera from inside to outside. But if I don't keep my camera in the bag from...
  9. What is your favorite lens? I'm interested in knowing.

    As the title says, what is your favorite lens?


    The answer doesn't have to be a lens you own or a lens branded Canon. But it will be better if you can share your opinion on why you like it.

    Re: if you could have just one......

    Of course it's the 1200/5.6L!! [:D]


    But seriously though, I would prefer my 16-35/2.8L II on FF. It's as perfect a walk around lens as the 24-70L and it gives a wow at 16mm when used properly.

  11. Re: Which lens trio would you choose for a Canon 50D user?

    +1 on this approach. It's a good way to learn and figure out what lenses one really needs.


    If I only use a 50D and don't have FF bodies, these are the 3 lenses I'm gonna have:

    Re: Using the Canon 50D for Sports

    I use a 50D for sport from time to time, and I think it's a very capable camera for most scenarios. It may not shoot as fast as the 1D II N, but from my experience I would say the focusing speed of...

    Re: Nothing to Buy from Canon... Help!

    But since I really need this lens for my work, i think i'll just pick up a Canon 50/1.4 regardless, then replace it in the future with whatever comes better in Canon's lineup. Unlike a L lens, the...

    Re: Nothing to Buy from Canon... Help!

    That's true. But I would suggest that the new 24/1.4L II lens will offer better contrast and is less sensitive to CA wide open. I would like to see a prime to offer very good performance wide open,...

    Re: Nothing to Buy from Canon... Help!

    I find the Canon's approach to landscape works well too - the 14/2.8L II + 16-35/2.8L II. Just a little expensive... The best thing about the 16-35L is that you can filter it. It's not as wide as the...

    Re: Nothing to Buy from Canon... Help!

    The 24/1.4L II is a nice lens, if I need 24mm prime I will have no problem buying one. but since what I need is 35mm prime, i'll wait for Canon to upgrade their 35/1.4L.

    Nothing to Buy from Canon... Help!

    Great review! Very informative especially with the comparisons.


    Here Canon has made a great lens, I wonder how the Tamron 17-50/2.8 VC will stand against it. A f/2.8 is more attractive to me...

    Re: 24-70 2.8 IS yes or no

    I owned this lens for 2 years. In terms of improvement in optics, I would wish Canon to make this lens more usable wide open. Wide open it is a little bit soft, unlike the Nikon one...

    Re: 50/1.4, 85/1.8 and 580EXII or 24-70/2.8?

    If you want a large aperture for portraiture, I would say the 85/1.8 is the best in this group. 50mm on FF in my personaly taste is too wide for portrait in general. Plus, the 85/1.8 feels much...

  23. Is such an 1Dv camera possible? (See if I'm making sense!)

    I have been dreaming about a FF 1D mark IV camera ever since it was
    in the rumors, but it turned out to be a "minor" update to the 1D III,
    similar to the 50D to 40D upgrade. Nevertheless, now I...

    Re: decent midrange lens. . .

    I think the 70-200/4L non-IS is a good choice if you can hold the camera pretty still or the main purpose of the lens is for fast sports (IS is turned off anyway). The 70-200/4L IS, as Bryan also...
