EOS Bodies / Sony a7r with Canon Lens experience
« on: September 28, 2014, 01:41:33 PM »
Hello Guys,

I know that this is a Canon forum, but i would like to hear some thoughts on this matter from Canon people.

So i`m thinking on buying a Sony A7R to join my trusty Canon 5d2 and Fuji X100s.  I have a Sigma 35mm 1.4, Zeiss 21 and a 70-200 IS 2.8, and i`m thinking on buying the sony 55 FE 1.8 too.

You can see my kind of photography here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/giamppiero/

I would like some advices from people who bought and use the A7r for Landscape photography and streetphotography, and what about the adapters experience, and general experience with the camera.

Thanks
João

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 2nd Camera Dilemma
« on: September 16, 2013, 05:03:40 AM »
Hi Guys!!!

So i`m on a dilemma right now, my current gear is a 5D2, 7D, and 17-40 F4, 35MM 1.4 (SIGMA), 70-200 II 2.8.

The reason that i have a second camera is i don`t like to change lens, and i also don`t like that feeling of "I miss that shot" because i`m with the wrong lens... As having this argument pointed out, i use rarely the second body (7D), most of my 7D use is when i travel (one or twice a year), or in special occasions and normally with the 70-200.
The last few days i ve been reading Fuji X100S information, and i`m curious about this camera, i really would  like a camera that offer me better IQ than de 7D, and as a 2nd camera that can be a every day camera also.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Lenses / Sigma 35 1.4 or Canon 50 1.4 or Canon 24-70 2.8 II
« on: January 28, 2013, 04:45:34 PM »
Hello Guys,

I`m in the process of choosing my next lens, i Have 3 options:
Sigma 35 1.4
Canon 50 1.4
Canon 24-70 2.8 II

The propose of the lens is for street photography and portraits. I prefer lens with some wide capability, that can give me versatility and the possibility of larger compositions. My main concern is Image Quality.

Can you give me your thoughts.

Thanks

Lenses / 24-70II or 17-40+5DMARK II
« on: October 30, 2012, 08:21:33 AM »
Hi Guys,

I want to gear up but i`m in a dilemma, and i m not a professional but photography is my hobbie.

MY current gear is:
Canon 7D
Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II
Tokina 11-16 2.8
Filters: Polarizer b+w 77mm, gnd 0.6 lee

I shoot mainly landscapes with lots of times a human element to give the final touch :) and portraits.

My dilemma is to buy the new canon 24-70 II or make and keep the current gear or buy  another body (5d mark ii) sell the tokina and buy the 17-40,

I would like very mucho to have them both but i don`t have the money to the this investment at the same time.

Any thoughts?
Thanks
