    Re: 7D Real!

    The 7D looks awesome and I want one when my 40D dies (or when I win the lottery, whichever comes first.)


    But, I'm kind of curious where this fits into Canon's product line. It's like a mix of...

    Re: Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5 L II Tilt-Shift Lens Review

    Great review (as usual). I felt like I was all cool with my shiny LNIB 24-105L until I read this :)


    The size of the image circle covered by the new TS-E lenses is very interesting...it probably...

    Re: 70-200

    It's all about continuous upgrading...buy something, sell it for nearly what you paid for it, use the proceeds to buy something that costs just a little more. I've gone from a 20D with kit lenses to...

    Re: Manfrotto vs. FEISOL

    I looked at the Manfrotto 055XPROB and the Feisol CT-3441S, and ended up with the Feisol CT-3441S. No regrets at all...the Feisol is a solid tripod. It's very light, and relatively easy to work with....

    Re: any lens that can do telephoto and macro?

    Using a zoom lens for macro is tough...I've done it with my Sigma 100-300, but it was certainly not optimal. I kept having to change the zoom to get any sort of accurate focus.

    Re: anyone try this Tokina lens?

    There's a good reason for that...as the focal lengths get longer, it takes more difficult feats of lens design and more expensive glass to achieve good image quality.

    Re: anyone try this Tokina lens?

    I had one for a couple of weeks during my long search for a plane-spotting lens. It's a compromise...it's the cheapest 400mm zoom out there, and it's also the smallest by a significant margin. Like...

    The 70-200 f/4. Stunning image quality, fast focusing, good build quality, compact size, and it's the least expensive L lens. It's only f/4, but that's plenty for shooting outside.
