    I'm thinking about investing in a 500mm f/8 mirror lens and was hoping some one here might have some experience with these. There are a lot of options out there with EF mount. Can anyone recommend...

    Thank you all for your posts, it looks like I will see improved AF with the 50D. The AFMA will also be a very useful upgrade (and not available on the 60D?!!). Time to splash the cash and buy the...

    400D/50D AF comparison

    Hi all, I've been absent from the forum for a long time. I've been using a much abused 400D for a the last 5 years and it's on the point of dying permanently. I have the oppertunity to buy an...

    Re: Canon Announces EOS 60D Digital SLR Camera

    So how long will the 50D continue to be available? I don't have the cash at the moment but was set on a 50D as an upgrade from my ageing 400D. I definitely want 6fps and focus micro-adjustment. At...

    Re: Post your best bird shots!

    Hi all, I haven't posted here in ages, but finally managed to get a half decent shot of a Guillemot for you all to critique. Taken from a small rocking boat, so I only got about 10% of my shots in...

  7. Re: "TOO MUCH CAMERA" .... is there such a thing???

    I agree 100%. I mainly use f/4 zooms and an f/4 telephoto prime. I am still amazed at the light gathering capabilities of my 50mm f/1.4 whenever the light fades and I switch over. It's like getting...

    Re: Windows 7 compatibility

    I didn't upgrade to Vista for exactly that reason.

    Thanks everyone. I'm jumping from XP to Windows 7, I never used Vista so it's all a rather big leap!

    Re: DSLR kit needed for work place trip

    Another reason to keep the lens on is African dust. If you are there during dry season you don't want to take a lens off - ever! I had red African dust appearing inthe viewfinder of my old OM10 years...

    Canon EOS 1D Mark IV 10 fps Burst

    I've printed a few shots from my 10.2MP 400D up to A1 size (roughly 23 x 33 inches) and they have looked fine. Of course, this is assuming you're not squinting at them up close but standing back far...

    Re: Flash for 50D

    I have the 430EX and ST-E2 but rarely use the flash off camera. It works fine though. If I was making the choice again, I'd go for the 580EX purely for the extra power. I only ever use the flash off...

    It's far more exotic than the house sparrows in my garden (in Ireland). A different species where you're based?

    Re: Post your best bird shots!

    What type of bird is that? I'm guessing a type of finch by the beak. It's colours blend really well with the surroundings.

    Re: Canon EF 300mm f/4.0 L IS USM Lens

    I've had the 300 f4 L IS for over a year now and find it excellent. Even with the 1.4 TC the IQ is amazing (although AF is slower). For the price, it is great value. You asked it to be rated 1 to 10,...
