Lenses / Re: Found Canon 28-80mm f2.8 and Canon 80-200mm f2.8, thoughts?

I have both lenses. They work very well in digital cameras and quality is like the new ones. The 28 80 is USM and focus work manual or auto all the time without the need of change the slider button. Quality is better than the 24 70 2.8L that have many problems with the alignment on the camera sensor: one side is out of focus.
The 80 200 i use mainly for video, always at 2.8, and manual focus is very easy and smooth. In autofocus mode it is not an USM lens, but is very fast. And is black! Is for this reason i never changed it for a new one.
If the lenses worked well on film work well on digital.

Plastic mounts on the lens and in the camera. The camera worked also with the extremely heavy EF 28-80 f2.8-4L with no problem, on tripod.

A big factor for him was how much faster/cheaper Canon's service department is than Nikon's.


When i worked in Spain as news photographer  in the end of the '70, i was the only one with Canon cameras. All others used Nikon.For newspapers and magazines was mandatory to work with Nikon. They said that it was impossible to work with cameras other than Nikon, and  I must to change, but I do not change. In the '80 canon creates the CPS, I had the card number 7.This was the authentic revolution.Those who used nikon began to change to Canon by the technical service and equipment loan service. Today with the CPN I have the camera repaired or replaced by a new one the same day. Considering this and the quality of Canon cameras and lenses is impossible to think of switching to another brand. I have Canon cameras from 1969. They changed, I do not.

What you have to say against the 300d????

Looking at that example, exposure accuracy and shadow detail.

hey boy, was a joke, we must not take things so seriously!

Hang on, you asked a question and posted a sample, I pointed out some obvious issues and you get all defensive, and called me boy! How does that work?

It is up to you how seriously you take this stuff, but you shouldn't be surprised if somebody answers a question you ask, it is a forum......

I did not ask anything to you. Was a quote for another person.
But  do not bring your personal problems to the forum.

what if tyho's "investment" in Canon is a 300D and a 18-55 efs???

He may very well be right to sell his kit for £30 and buy a low end newer Nikon. Everyone is up in arms like he's using the 5Diii or 1Dx and reckoning the tech is a bit shoddy or something...

What you have to say against the 300d????

Multiple exposures is something that I really miss from the days of analog photography, especially with strobes.

Fantastic! Congratulations!


I used to have a main body - 7d-and a backup - t2i. The 7d wasnt cutting it visually and the af broke down, so i had to get rid of it. As the image quality is very pleasing, ive been shooting with the t2i exclusively for the last year. However its already been to the shop twice and now the lcd in the screen is not showing the iso correctly.

If the LCD is not showing the ISO, try Magic Lantern.

Scanning with a scanner or enlarging with an enlarger is the same thing: make a positive from a negative.

Um...if you are trying to deal with removing scratches then scanning versus enlarger prints is two entirely different problems.

I'm guessing something is being lost in translation here so I'm gonna let it go.

As for the OP, scratched negatives suck but be glad you do have the digital option to correct them. The healing brush is probably the best tool to deal with it but if you want to try a potentially easier solution, check out the content aware fill features in PS. I think they started getting pretty good in CS5. If your version is earlier then you are stuck with healing brush.
It's ok, I just wanted to say that it's not a different story.
In the darkroom, the paper to make the prints is negative, like the negative film. Negative + negative= positive.
With a scanner  you can scan a negative to make it positive, same as negative paper in the darkroom.
For me is the same thing to shoot digital or film, but i print digital. PS is more versatile and repeatable.Especially for the scratches and Silver EFX pro.
