  2. Re: Distance scales on lenses that *aren't* parfocal

    USM lenses have a slip clutch that lets the focus ring override the AF motor. This makes the focus scales totally worthless unless you first set the focus to infinity or minimum each time. Don

    Re: A tele lens for canon

    If you are trying to be inconspicious, a white telephoto is not it. The 70-200mm f/4L is very good. Even my 24-105mm f/4 turns heads with all that glass out in front.

    If you were pointing it downward while using or moving the multi-controller, you were opening it up for rain to get in. Its really difficult to seal that multicontroller, but as long as your camera...

  10. Re: First Post. Looking for advice on a general purpose zoom.

    With my 40d, I had the 17-55mm as well as the 24-105mm L. both were excellent and the 24-105 would have been perfect it it went to 17mm. So, I switched back and forth, but tended to favor the 24-105...

    Re: Looking at used 30D. Worth it?

    A lot of the "POP" in photos comes from post production. Many use RAW and a editor like lightroom to adjust the image to look like it should. It can make a huge difference to add a little sharpness...

    Re: a lens for Wild life in a bit tight budget

    I've tried many telephoto lenses, 400mm 5/5.6L, 600mm f/4L, 70-300mm IS, Tamron 200-500mm, Sigma 400mm, etc. The 600mm L was the best, of course, but I could not take it with me for a quick shot, it...

    Re: Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L

    I would never consider trading my 100-400 for the new 70-300mmL. However, each of us has their own priorities. It is light weight and takes up less space. However, if you ever step up to FF or a 1D...

    I have used the 70-200mm f/4 with 1.4X, 2X, and both stacked with good results. However, its not at all user friendly to add and take off the extenders in the field.

    Re: 17-55mm front-focusing...how bad is it?
