Lenses / Re: wide angle needed

16-35 f4 is definitely what you want. Canon did an excellent job on that one.

Spend the 200 on a canon check and keep running your business.

It is an amazing lens no doubt. I would suggest getting it over the older lenses. I did but again I upgraded from the venerable 20-35.

Newer had any issue with my canon gear. However purchased a new fuji x100s and when I opened the box the lens coating was cracked. Back to BH it went. Now awaiting the X100T

Lenses / Re: What do you use your wide angle lens for?

Use to get really close and wide or for landscape. The 16-35 f4 is indeed a very fine lens.

The lens user value is way more than 400$. Don't give it away.

Definitely the 24-70 f2.8 II. It is amazing and even lighter than the old version.

Use what you have and get on with it. If you need a cheap solution why not the 50 f1.8

Photography Technique / Re: Night Shot- Brooklyn Bridge

The long exposure obviously gives motion blur in the sky and water. The static elements should be sharp. The subject will change so color, time of day, time  of year, traffic on the river and so forth are what basically will make your picture - not removing the carousel or other parts of reality and not you CS5 capabilities. My 2C of course. I think you did well.

Sell it and buy the 6D.

Lighting / Re: Canon MR-14EX I vs II?

Hi you can the MkI version mich cheaper on Ebay than 400. Actually I have one for sale at 300, but that's another story. I do agree with the other reply that the ring flash doesn't produce the best lighting.

24-105L with a 5D3. Then 100L, 70-300L, 70-200LII, 50L which was sold again regrettably, 24-70LII, 135L. Probably I should have stayed with 24-105 and the 70-300L.

Lenses / Re: Distance-dependent AF behaviour of Canon 35/2 IS
« on: May 30, 2014, 07:09:56 PM »
You may also need to be aware that AF one shot mode is more precise according to Canon. There was a link to that in a post not long ago.

Lenses / Re: 24-105 vs 24-70 2.8 ii
« on: May 30, 2014, 07:05:09 PM »
Both lenses are great. The 24-70 II is much better though at f2.8 and in the corners. Since I bought the 24-70 I haven't used my 24-105. Anyhow, I will keep both.
