Lenses / Re: Tamron 24-70 f/2.8
« on: November 16, 2013, 06:36:55 PM »
@logaandm - this is awesome - THANK YOU.  I have never taken a photography class but just have been trying to learn and get a feel for what I like to shoot.  This is straight out of the camera - no post processing.  Your advice / comments are awesome and much appreciated.  Thanks!

Lenses / Tamron 24-70 f/2.8

Recently purchased this awesome lens.  Went out for some wine tasting and was able to capture this great shot (in my view) but was hoping for some feedback from the experts!  What do you think about this shot?

Lenses / Re: 70-200 f/4 IS vs 70-200 f/2.8 non-IS
« on: October 23, 2013, 08:54:04 AM »
Thanks everyone.  Looks like the f/4 IS is the front runner on this one.  I rented it once before and really liked the lens - especially when paired with the 1.4x converter.  The 70-300 lens was a bit soft for me when I rented it and was much heavier than the f/4.  Also do not like that it doesn't have a fixed f stop.  Prices online seem pretty good right now (around 1,100) so will likely make the move soon.

Does anyone have experience with the 2.8 non-IS with an extender?  How is the IQ and is it hard to get stable shots?

I recently upgraded to a 6D and I am loving it. I purchased the Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 and just received it. I am looking for a zoom lens as well and keep going back and forth between these two lenses and further, considering an extender as well.

The prices are pretty close to each other. So what would folks recommend?

Recently purchased a Canon 6D and LOVING it.  I have the 24-105 f/4 and 50 f/1.8.  What filters would folks recommend?  I mainly photograph portraits and landscapes.  Welcome thoughts!  Thanks!

I just made the exact same move myself.  I also have the 24-105 and the 50 f/1.8 (instead of the 40).  It has been an incredible upgrade and I LOVE the new camera.  Make the move!!

How do people feel about the 135L with an extender?

It takes the extender ok, but it will lose to the 70-200L f/2.8 IS II in IQ/IS.  If you don't have 70-200L zoom, then 135 + extender is a good way to extend the focal length range.

Do you think it is better than the 70-300?

Tony - do you feel like you need the IS?

So I finally made the jump and upgraded my T2i to a 6D.  I am LOVING it.  I know that there are lots of critics out there that have negative things to say about the 6D, but being an amateur / hobbyist, I could not be happier.  The one downside (which I obviously knew going into this) was not being able to use my EF-S lenses (Canon 10-22 and Tamron 18-270) so I am in the process of selling those. 

I currently have the Canon 24-105 and the Canon 50 f/1.8 lenses for the 6D.  I don't have a substantial budget, but I am thinking that I need to get a zoom lens as well.  What do people recommend?  I am currently between the following:

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM Lens
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens (I know there are always rumors of this lens being upgraded - but let's put that aside for now). 
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L USM Lens
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM Lens

Would appreciate thoughts of the group and especially experience from those with the Canon 6D who own any of the above lenses. 

Thanks!

EOS Bodies / Recommendations for 6D
« on: June 25, 2013, 12:58:30 PM »
So I just received my new Canon 6D -upgraded from a T2i - very excited!  Was wondering if any other 6D users out there have recommendations for settings  (coloration, etc.) I should be thinking about for portrait photography. 

Would appreciate any other recommendations that folks have regarding the camera!

I am looking to upgrade my equipment and looking to sell a few items.  Which sites do you get the best price for your products?

Not sure where that question is coming from.  Are you asking for yourself? I have a 24-105 currently and its a great lens to go along w/ the 10-22.

Another question for the group.  If I go with the 6D upgrade from the T2i (rather than the 7D), what is the most portable and lightweight speedlight that you would recommend?
