Lenses / 70-200 f2.8 IS mk 2 with 2x extender
« on: October 16, 2014, 05:05:14 PM »
Just received my 70-200 today, to late to really test it as have been so busy, just know it works and focuses fast. A couple of questions, firstly is it any good with the 2x extender ( I have searched, this forum and others, Arthur Morris, birds as art on FM gets brilliant images with this combo ) others say the 100-400 (which I have) or similar gives better results. I also have the 1.4 mk3 extender and reviews say it performs well with the 70-200 f2.8 IS mk2. Second question, is there a strap that is capable of carrying this lens on a 5D3,either to my side or across my back ( as I saw a Nikon user recently using, though with a lighter lens, bigger camera) My usual method of carrying the 100-400 is to hold the lens as I am walking, I do not find this awkward most of the time but if walking with my dog it can be a problem.

Lenses / 16-35 maybe 17-40
« on: March 09, 2013, 02:07:07 PM »
I am considering one or the other mainly for landscapes, but it could be nice to have  f2.8 for the occasional indoor scene, there is a Canon cashback offer in the UK on the 16-35, still more than I would like to pay, but I have learnt in photography you have to pay for quality gear, my other concern is do these lenses vignette at wide angle especially with filters ( Cokin p system ) I would be prepared to upgrade filters over time.

Lenses / Filter kit
« on: December 12, 2012, 04:56:20 PM »
I would like a few filters, one to stop the sky, some for longer exposeres of waterfalls or seascapes, my main lens would be the 24-105, and would prefer something on the P system for other lenses. Budget of aprox £100, thanks,

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Extenders with 5d3

Looking forward to f8 in April, I have the 100-400L and am wondering which teleconvertor to buy the 1.4 or the 2.0? Canon or Kenko?
I suspect 1.4 is the way to go but would love to hear opinions and see some images that may convince me which is best.

Regards, Alan
