    Canon 70-200 f/4 or Sigma 70-200 f/2.8?

    Before I made the jump to Fuji I debated for months on the variety of 70-200 lenses. I'll summarize my research and conclusion. Do you need/want weather sealing? If yes, just go all out and get the Canon 70-200 2.8 II. Why? I'll explain. Tamron 70-200 2.8 - Great lens, great reviews, great...

    Filter system confusion! Help!

    Thank you! So on a full frame DSLR the 4x4 won't cause any vignetting issues?

    Replacing Kit Lens

    When I had a crop body, I bought all my lenses with the intention of going full frame. The first lens I got was the 50mm 1.8, and I loved that thing to death. If you want wide angle, I suggest the 17-40L as it is cheap for the quality. Now, on your crop sensor it won't be truly "Ultra wide", but...

    Filter system confusion! Help!

    I am willing to go with Cokin as well, I'm just confused by both systems.

    Landscape

    I started out with the Canon T3, and the 18-55 was really good for to get Wide Angle if you can't afford anything better. But, ask yourself this: Are you planning on moving to a full frame camera? (5D MKII/III, 6D, etc etc) If so, don't go spending tons of cash on lenses designed for a crop...

    Filter system confusion! Help!

    I am looking to build a filter system for my landscape work. I have a Canon 5D MKII and I use a Canon 17-40 F4/L for my work. I first began by looking at the Lee filter system (The LEE Camera Filters System - Includes Filter Holders, Adaptor Rings and Lens Hoods) which looks great, but it's...

    Canon 5D MKII Battery grips

    Hey all, I'm thinking of picking up a battery grip for my 5D MKII. Canon's is outrageous, and I don't see too many good reviews for the off brand competitors. I was wondering if any of you have been using off brand grips, or Canon grips, and what are your opinions?

    Remote Shutter Release

    Hey all, I have a Canon 5D MKII, and I was looking to get a cable release. I've seen the ones from Canon, and everybody is saying they're very much over priced, I agree. I was wondering what suggestions you guys have for wired, or wireless releases at a good price?

    Need some tips on shooting a friend

    I've been shooting for almost a year, shooting seriously for about half that. (Flickr: Flickr: Rob_Brewer's Photostream ) I have a Canon EOS Rebel T3 for the body with a Canon 50mm 1.8 and a Canon 70-200mm F4/L, with the 17-55m kit lens also. Location is uncertain at the moment. I mainly do...

    Need some tips on shooting a friend

    I have a friend who wants me to take pictures of her one day. She claims to be highly un-photogenic as she claims she is somewhat light skinned and has odd bone structure. I was wondering if you guys have any tips for getting solid pictures out of un-photogenic people.

    Having trouble with focus at night.

    Yeah, I was going for the entire image to be in focus

    Having trouble with focus at night.

    Yeah, I was using that method, I'd have my friend go out with a flash light about 10-15ft and then I'd focus on her. I was thinking it would be far enough back to get the whole image (I was wrong) I think I'll go back this weekend and give some of these tips a shot.

    Having trouble with focus at night.

    I've recently started to get more in to photography at night, I took this picture last night: imgur: the simple image sharer and I use the Canon EOS T3, and the LCD does not show problems too well. On the LCD this image looked amazing, I get home only to be disappointed. I used a Canon 50mm 1.8...

    Need a solid wide angle lens that doesn't cost a fortune.

    I understand on the crop body it won't be too wide, I'm ok with that for now as I definitely intend to go FF as soon as the 5D prices come down a bit (hoping in the next few days the upgrades roll out)

    Need a solid wide angle lens that doesn't cost a fortune.

    A lot of good feedback, I've narrowed it down to the 17-40 and the 24-105, I personally like the range the 24-105 offers, but I understand where you're coming from on the ultra wide at 17-40 as well.

    Need a solid wide angle lens that doesn't cost a fortune.

    I currently have the 70-200MM F4L, I really like the idea of the lens mentioned by Schwetty, and I also like the idea of the lens you mentioned, Joey, now you say it's on a crop body, is this lens a crop lens for FF? Edit: I currently own the Canon 50MM 1.8 as well. Double Edit: Does the...

    Need a solid wide angle lens that doesn't cost a fortune.

    I have a Canon EOS Rebel T3 (1100D), I'm toying with the idea of going to the 5D if the price drops when Canon announces their new line.

    Need a solid wide angle lens that doesn't cost a fortune.

    Hmm, don't think I saw that one, but I like the way that sounds.

    Need a solid wide angle lens that doesn't cost a fortune.

    I am interested in some Landscape/Cityscape photography, and I was wanting to look into getting a wide angle lens, most are prime lenses. For one reason or another I was looking for a wide angle zoom, but they're all L lenses which are outrageous for me right now, or EF-S lenses which I do not...

    Want new zoom lens, torn on choices. Help!

    Thanks, I was really teetering on the L myself. What would taking a shot of the moon look like on a 200mm? I'm not looking for super close up amazing detail, just good enough to look good should I take a picture of the night sky.
