    canon 100mm 2.0 or 100mm 2.8 macro?

    I think some people get confused about the "Macro" tag on this lens. Yes it allows you to move in close for 1:1 macro photography, but it is still a capable tele-prime as well. If you have it set to the full focus range, then it will take a while to focus, but that is why it give you the...

    I feel his pain... A couple Random Gull Shots

    I am not a bird man myself so I don't know for sure, but I was at Ocean City, MD for these pics. There were a bunch of smaller brown ones and a bunch of the larger stereotypical grey and white ones. I think this maybe the teenager versions of the gulls we all know. I could be wrong...

    "I'm kind of a big thing"

    Thanks! I was only joking about the downhill part, but the electric wire is a great idea! :D

    "I'm kind of a big thing"

    I don't post my pictures often, but this one just came out great. My daughter was putting on boots which gave her this model pose and expression (she did not do this on purpose... I hope). I don't think I will be able to top this picture of her ever. It is all down hill from here and she is...

    24-70 vs 28-70 worth $300?

    Thanks guys... I decided to return the lens. While the quality of the optics looked great, I don't know if it offered me that much more flexibility over my 50mm f/1.4. The focal range is more than a few steps, but not that much more. I think I will look at getting the 85mm f/1.8 and a...

    24-70 vs 28-70 worth $300?

    I appreciate the words of sanity. Unfortunately, I am still very much an amateur and have not had a chance to play with the 24-70 version. I will shoot some pictures of my daughter and a few random items later, but I was just wondering if anyone here has had experience with both these lenses...

    24-70 vs 28-70 worth $300?

    I received the lens at work and have not left yet. The few tests I have done are of my office and off the T2i LCD the samples look fine. I don't have a card reader or miniUSB to pull the pics off to my computer.

    24-70 vs 28-70 worth $300?

    I just got a 28-70 f/2.8 recently for $740, but I may be having some buyers remorse. At first glance, it is in perfect condition optically, but I was wondering if a used 24-70 is worth the extra ~$300 in cash. Any thoughts. Should I just keep the 28 and be dumb and happy? Thanks for your...

    New to the addiction of dSLRs... Question on lenses.

    Well... I tried to follow everyones advice here, but BHPhoto just listed an EF-S 10-22 (9 condition) for $575. I guess I am a wide photographer for now (in terms of pictures and body type). Thanks guys.

    New to the addiction of dSLRs... Question on lenses.

    Thanks, Mike. I have access to a 15-85 IS and obviously my kit lens. So, I have been less excited to replace my kit than I have to get something in a new range. I think I might go wide an wait on the longer lens. Maybe the newish 70-200 f/2.8 IS will drop some of the 4.0s into the used...

    New to the addiction of dSLRs... Question on lenses.

    The size of the 70-200 is something that makes me wonder how often I would pull it out (I know... "That's what she said"). Makes me wish the 70-300 DO was a bit more reasonable from a pricing perspective or higher quality. Do you think the 3 lenses I mentioned (not including the kit)...

    New to the addiction of dSLRs... Question on lenses.

    So I recently move on from my Sony DSC-R1 - which I still love because of that glass - to a Canon 2ti. I just needed something better in low light and more versatile with a snappier focus. I am looking to get a few lenses, but I want to be smart and spend slowly. Plus, I want the "honeymoon"...

    $250 dollars off D300S (Body only) with 18-200MM at Amazon

    Just ran across this on Amazon. If you buy the Nikon D300s (body only) and the 18-200 VRII lens you can get a $250 rebate. I know this is a pretty specific sale, but that is not a bad discount if you are thinking about moving to a D300s. Total price is just shy of $2100 Amazon.com...

    Getting a D90 but TORN about lenses :( help!

    Would you recommend the 35mm f/1.8 over the 50mm f/1.4? I know the crop factor makes the 35mm more of a "natural eye" lens, but the 1.4 seems tempting for low light.

    Getting a D90 but TORN about lenses :( help!

    I am thinking about doing the same thing getting a D90 - from a different camera altogether. Right now I am leaning toward... 50mm f/1.4 - I have kids and shoot them a lot in low light. - I would rather have the 35mm prime with a DX, but the f/1.4 is too price for now...

    A Couple of Pics of my Daughter

    That shot was un-doctored. I did crop it closer to her for the final print. Thanks for the comments. Here is one more. It is still in landscape, but it is closer. It is a shame I couldn't get mom in the frame from where I was standing, but I think the shot still works. Also un-doctored...
