    Sigma vs. Sigma help

    Hey there, I'm a sports photographer with a Canon 7D Mark II, and a 70-200mm, so far so good, I love this tele. But when it comes to wide angle I currently use a poor kit lens, it really is bad.

    Question about other sports photographers' photos

    Hi and good day! I am just wondering how does the sports photographers' photos look very bright, high quality and well-taken, compared to my shots on my Canon EOS Rebel T5 that are just mediocre, average or okay quality.
