Lenses / Lee Adaptor for EF24-70 F2.8 II
« on: January 01, 2015, 12:23:19 PM »
Looking to get the 24-70 for use on FF. Anyone have experience of using a Lee filter holder with this lens bearing in mind the 82mm fliter thread?

I'm presuming a WA adaptor would be best/essential? Standard adaptor would cause vignetting?

I prefer to keep a UV filter on my lenses so would ideally fit a Hoya Pro-1D to the lens & then the adaptor ring - with a WA adaptor would I get any vignetting with a Lee 2-slot holder & 105mm ring fitted?

Or will I need to remove the UV filter before fitting the Lee Adaptor?

Grateful for any advice particulary from anyone with the 24-70 as to what will work or not?

Thanks folks :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / EOS6D or 7DMKII ?

Been looking for a replacement for my 40D which is getting a bit long in the tooth & had first thought of going for the 70D but reports of AF problems put me off it. In the meantime I bought an EOS100D/SL1 as I'd fancied a small body too & have been very pleased with it.

Having 17-40L & 70-200 F4L IS lenses, I was looking towards the 6D as my main interest is travel/landscape photography & a bit of airshow stuff (for which the 100D is fine) so FF seemed the logical way to go.

However, the 7D MKII is very tempting; whereas the 6D is kinda bottom of the range FF, the 7DMKII is certainly top of the range APS C sensor.

I do like the 7D's joystick & the new lever round it that you can assign different functions to like Exp comp looks really good. I like the GPS too, shame no wifi or articulating/touch screen but the 6D doesn't have those either.

If the early reports about the 7D MKII's lack of noise are accurate then then I think the IQ between the two is going to be minimal unless you print really large (which I don't).

The 7DMKII just seems a more complete camera whereas the 6D seems more of a compromise? Shame there's (not yet) a wideangle L series zoom for APS C bodies.

So, head says 6D, heart thinks 7DMKII. Any thoughts ?
