Hi,

Does anyone know where I could purchase Canon branded T-shirts in the UK? (Or Europe).

Thanks

Thanks everyone!

You've all given plenty of food for thought. I'm thinking that to ditch the 17-40mm wouldn't be a wise move, having the WA on full frame is too useful to loose.
What I need is the 35mm in ADDITION to everything else!

More gear !!

Thanks all.

Also maybe worth noting that I have a cropped body with 17-85mm as my back-up to my back-up, for those moments when I need something a bit moe WA than 35mm this could save the day (after a ten hour wedding I average only 4 or 5 or 6 shots at anything wider than 35mm that make it to final edit stage ).

@Eldar - thanks for the reply. Interesting about the AF issues, I'm going to look into that one, anyone else experiencing the same?

Lenses / Change Canon 17-40mm f4 L for Sigma 35mm f1.4??
« on: December 26, 2013, 02:34:31 AM »
Hello,

Here's the situation: I shot a mix of things, weddings (and portraits), documentary and street.
I currently have a 17-40L that I use 'sometimes' but rarely, I love my primes - 40mm, 50mm and 85mm and when at weddings I hardly ever have the 70-200mm off one of my bodies (I shoot FF btw).
Seeing as I love the primes that I have and rarely use the 17-40, I've got the chance to get the Sigma 35mm f1.4. I know it's close the the 40mm but as much as that's a great lens it's only 2.8 (wedding venues can get dark, even 2.8 is too slow sometimes!!!!).

Basically, shall it change the 17-40 for the 35mm?

Thanks for the input

I have the 17-40mm, 40mm, 50mm, 85mm and the 70-200mm all on FF.

I had the 24-105 - great lens but I started to find it a bit 'boring' (did I just say that?!). It's 'only' f/4 and, like you, I felt I wanted something a bit wider. I couldn't afford the 16-35mm so went for the 17-40 instead. OK it's still 'only' f/4 but inside venues it's fantastic! I get WA shots of interiors that I would have never achieved with the 24-105mm.

However, If I had the cash I'd swap to all primes: 24mmL, 35mmL, 50mmL, 85mmL and 135mmL.

But for now I'll dream on!!

Good luck, I'd get the 16-35mm, I think you will like it.

I had the 24-105 L, I found it too 'standard' and not that exciting - great IQ though. I changed for the 17-40 L and LOVE it. Wide on FF (5dmk2) it's brilliant.

It's a bargain. Buy it!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D for a 1DS mk2 ??
« on: November 02, 2012, 05:28:28 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I'm still thinking this one over!

I've heard that the 1Ds batteries can cause problems as they get older. Anyone experienced this?

I'm also thinking of swapping the 5Dc for a 5D mk2, but I guess that's a different debate!

The thrill of owning a 1ds mk2 is outweighing a 5d mk2 at the minute!

My only real concern is its low light capabilities. The 5dc barely cuts the mustard in dark wedding venues, will the 1ds mk2 be any better????

Thanks all

Rhys

What about the higher ISO with the 1ds mk2? How does that compare to the 5D Classic?

Cheers

Rhys.

Hi RLPhoto,

It's a 1Ds, would that sway you anymore?

Cheers

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D for a 1DS mk2 ??
« on: October 30, 2012, 03:39:35 PM »
Hi,
I have a 5 D 'classic' that I use as a second body (to a 5D mk2). I have the chance to basically swap the 5D 'classic' for a 1DS mk2.

Should I do it?

Dilemma. 

Anyone got some good pros and cons ?

Thanks for your time

Rhys.

Third Party Manufacturers / New Sigma Lenses - Shipping Availability
« on: October 24, 2012, 08:11:50 AM »
Hi,

I keep searching and searching but I cannot find the answer! Does anyone know (or have a guess) when the new Sigma lenses will be available (in the UK)? It's the 35mm that I'm interested in more than anything.

Cheers

Rhys
