Lenses / Re: Selling my Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II

Why exchange this fine lens to simple bucks that seem to fly out of your pockets without you knowing anything about it.

Agree on the 24-105L. Or you could by the 7DMkII plus 24-70 at Canada Camera discount and keep the 7DII for your own purpurse!

Fantastic lens at f1.2..... Regret I sold it. The F1.4 may be better above f2.8 but that is not the point with the 1.2 version.

Your lens should be performing flawlessly at 24 mm. If not satisfied return it immediately.

Lenses / Re: 70-200 f2.8 IS mk 2 with 2x extender
« on: October 16, 2014, 06:46:59 PM »
I had the combo but have now sold the 2xEXIII. IQ was fine as well as AF. However,  I found the combo to be heavy and cumbersome. Now I am using the 70-300L in those situation. Quite a nice lens too. Thinking of getting the 1.4EX as it would give a f4 lens and even could be used with the 70-300 at the long end although at f8. Tried the 2x with the 300 f2.8 II for a couple of weeks. That is where it excels. Unfortunately, I don't have the 300 f2.8 lens in my bag.

The 24-70 II is such a wonderful lens that you will forget about IS or whatever first time you see what lovely results it can produce. You won't be played purchasing this lens.

Canon EF Zoom Lenses / Re: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
« on: October 05, 2014, 09:56:33 PM »
Had the 2xTC III for use with the 70-200 II, but felt I just ended up with a cumbersome heavy combo. Probably should have chosen the 1.4 EX instead also giving me f4 and not 5.6. Had to send the lens to Canon as the lens new out of the box had a defect rubber gasket at the lens mount (part missing). Also I am not that impressed on the sharpness. It is great but not great as in fantastic.

Canon EF Zoom Lenses / Re: Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM

The 16-35 IS is a very fine lens indeed. Sharp, crisp, quick focus, superb IS. Light too if that matters. if you need a UWA Canon, clearly this is the way to go. However, UWA requires skill and talent. Personally, I am still in the  very begin of what I hope to be the learning curve.

16-35 f4 is definitely what you want. Canon did an excellent job on that one.

Spend the 200 on a canon check and keep running your business.

It is an amazing lens no doubt. I would suggest getting it over the older lenses. I did but again I upgraded from the venerable 20-35.

Lenses / Re: 24-70 f/2.8 L II front coating peeling off?
« on: September 25, 2014, 04:27:16 PM »
Newer had any issue with my canon gear. However purchased a new fuji x100s and when I opened the box the lens coating was cracked. Back to BH it went. Now awaiting the X100T

Lenses / Re: What do you use your wide angle lens for?
« on: September 25, 2014, 04:22:20 PM »
Use to get really close and wide or for landscape. The 16-35 f4 is indeed a very fine lens.

The lens user value is way more than 400$. Don't give it away.

Definitely the 24-70 f2.8 II. It is amazing and even lighter than the old version.
