Lenses / 50mm lens. I Need advice!!
« on: August 22, 2012, 10:16:50 PM »
Hey guys! thinking of getting a 50mm as my first "aftermarket" lens.

The Lenses I'm looking to pick up in about a month or so is the Canon 50mm f/1.4 or the Sigma 50mm f/1.4, or if its worth it I can wait and save a little bit more and get the Canon 50mm f/1.2 (MAYBE)

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 - I like the build quality and the size of the Sigma it feels sturdier compared to its canon counterpart and it doesn't look weird on my 7D. also the Sigma is a newer lens. The concerns I have about the Sigma is that some are having problem with the lens not working with the camera. also some focusing problems. and the lens I tried out on a local shop had a weird noise when focusing.

Canon 50mm f/1.4 - The build quality of the canon is not as sturdy as the sigma. if feels more plasticky and cheap. the Canon is almost half the size of the Sigma and it looks kinda weird on my 7D without the lens hood. but looks is not really a deciding factor for me. I know some of the canon 50mm f/1.4 have some focusing issues as well. the canon is almost silent compared to the Sigma when focusing. also the canon 50mm f/1.4 has been around for quite a while now I'm worried that if I do decide to pick up the canon a month or two later a version II comes out.

So which one should I get?

EOS Bodies / Should I get 7D now or wait for MKII?

Hey guys! I'm new to this forum and new to Photography. I've always loved taking pictures of landscape,cars,people, and just random stuff. Lol So I decided that it's time for me to grab a decent DSLR.

I'm completely new to DSLR's and photography. Still doing a lot of reading and learning on which camera I should go with. Based on the stuff I've read and learned I'm leaning towards getting the 7D. But I'm concerned that when I get the 7D now couple of months later down the road the new rumored 7D MKII comes out.

So my question is should I wait for the 7D MKII (why?) or I should just get the 7D?
