    The Pancake is kind of a niche lens that I never really "got". While it has good performance I'd rather do without the size/weight savings to amp it up a notch. A lot of people really love theirs...

    Hi Knight, first - congratulations!

    Do you use your 70D for video? Or do you pretty much concentrate on still photography?

    From what I see you have a good starting point and some strong lenses....

    It's sort of funny - I remember back in the late 70's when I was in college and becoming an avid shutterbug, picking up a photography magazine that was showing off the incredible resolving power of...

    Congratulations on the RRS. I've never heard of anybody sorry they bought one.

    I actually never liked ball heads for years - decades actually. Perhaps it was because they didn't really exist when...

    Regarding laying on the ground:
    I forgot to mention this - but Sean or Bryan mentioned at one point this lens support that looks like a Frisbee turned upside-down with a ball head on it. I can't...

    I own the Tamron, and it's a great lens. That said, if I were doing it all over I'd buy the Sigma Contemporary in a heartbeat. Besides having a slightly nicer build (and looking better IMHO), the USB...

    For such a great lens, it sure doesn't get a lot of love. Anymore, anyway. Granted, it's got loads of distortion at 24. So does my 24-70/2.8L II. CA? Yes, that's Canon feature it seems. It's also a...

    I think the intoxicating part (at least for me) is the potential of completely changing the composition of a shot. All of a sudden you've got the ability to remove fully 50% of the image, and still...

    Am I to assume that the 5DS R then does have an AA filter, but the "Low-Pass Cancellation Filter" allows you to bypass it (toggle)?
    That's sort of what I'm reading into the description, anyway. I...
