Technical Support / Japan - Hawaii Travel: gear advice
« on: August 14, 2014, 10:33:52 AM »
Hello CanonRumors!

I have booked my honeymoon from 20th sept 14 to 15th oct 14: first week Tokyo, second week Takayama, Nara, Osaka and Kyoto. Then we travel back to Honolulu and Maui.

Any advice while travelling by plane? I know that in US border I have to charge all my batteries (laptop, camera, tablet etc) in order to demonstrate it's not a "black device"... anything else? Any documentation or declaration before checkin?

Thanks a lot!

(I'll bring a 7d + 2 batteries and charger, 4 CF, 15-85 and 70-200)

Wich solution do you think will be more flexible and reliable?

Lenses / EOS - trip in the desert: dust
« on: July 02, 2013, 09:45:41 AM »
Hello everyone!
In September I am going to Fuerteventurafor a surf trip. Wind, sand (like the desert) and salt from the sea are the caracteristics of the environment and I am going to bring my 7D, 15-85 and 70-200 f4 is: all with protective filters.

Do I need to pay more attention? No lens change during wind on sand, OK... Anything else?


what can you put in that bag? any experience?
I can fill it with a 7D+BG and 15-85 attached, 50 1.8, bag with extra battery and CF, Flash and nothing more (except for the pocket).

How do you manage your bag space?

Lenses / 70-200 f2.8 MkI & Mk II and Extenders
« on: April 26, 2013, 07:45:50 AM »
Dear all of you,
anyone who use extenders with 70-200 f2.8 IS USM Mk I or Mk II?

I am evaluating to buy one of them listed but probably Mk I is out of production, right?
And, an extender delivers good image quality on this lense?

thanks a lot,

Lenses / 50mm: Wich one?
« on: March 26, 2013, 01:14:45 PM »
hello to all!
I have the 50 1.8 and I am considering an upgrade to the 1.4 version.
Can you give me some examples in which one is better than the other? (IQ, not USM, built, etc)

Version 1.4 is sharper? Bokeh?

Thanks a lot!

I found at home on an old Tamron a filter by Hoya - SKYLIGHT 1B. I don't know this model, can anyone tell me it's story?
Isn't it a good filter for digital?


Lenses / Protective filter [for Canon 15-85]
« on: November 03, 2012, 02:29:29 PM »
I have ordered the Canon 15-85, which protective filter do you suggest? Do I need one slim in order to "fight" vignetting?

I am oriented to HOYA Pro1 digital, is it slim enought?
Thanks to all of you!

Lenses / Rumors about general porpouses lenses for APS-C
« on: September 29, 2012, 10:54:59 AM »
Dear all of you,
I am a 7D owner and I am waiting to deal for a new lens, a stadard one like 15-85 ("f/ is not good" bla bla bla) but I need one compact for trips.

Do you think that Canon will develop any new lenses for new APS-C rumored bodies in the near future?
If not I'll make a Christmas present with ol'15-85.

Thanks in advice !

Lenses / 70-200 f/2.8 USM: why not mkII?
« on: June 27, 2012, 12:42:13 PM »
Hello everybody!

I was wondering why Canon is not replacing 70-200 f/2.8 with an MK II. The first version is dated 1995, right (?) and till now nothing just "only" 70-200 IS USM and MK II..... "only"!

I want to buy the non-IS version but I hope for a MK II: why Canon has not replaced it jet?
Will it be replaced..........?

Thanks for the prevision
