Sell it and buy the 6D.

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.

I even take my 5D3 and pancake out on long distance running slash street shooting on the go.

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.

Have had no issues with the 24-70 II at MFD. It is a great lens but heavy for a 60D in my opinion, so unless you want to go FF you may be better served with the Canon APS f2.8 lens that also gets very good reviews.

If that is the lens you are looking for you may get it even cheaper as refurbished from Canon. I did buy refurbish from BH once and have had no issue what so ever with my purchase.

If you purchased the lens from an authorized dealer and have the receipt, you should not face any problems with warranty. If the lens works to your satisfaction I would not worry about when it was build.

Lenses / Re: Waiting for the 35 1.4L II

I have the 35IS and it is a beauty. Highly recommend it.

The 24-70 II is a very fine lens indeed. Now is a new option if one did not get it during the Xmas sale. I did get it back then and I am very pleased with its performance as I am with Canons products in general. I have not used the 24-105 since getting the new lens. Kind of illustrate its potential to me at least.

A New York too. Safety will not be a concern, if acting with slightest common sense. Go take the East River Ferry - 12$ day pass - and visit LIS, Williamsburg and Brooklyn Bridge Park (be sure to try the vanilla Chocolate Chip at at BKL Ice-cream Factory) and then pass the bridge by foot and proceed to city hall, WTC, Battery Park, Wall St perhaps a heli ride before heading back to midtown from pier 11. Enjoy 

Lenses / Re: 70-300mm F/4-5.6L IS or 70-200mm F2.8 VC?
« on: February 20, 2014, 10:31:40 PM »
I have both. They are very different though and for different purposes. The 70-300L is a super general telephoto lens. Very much recommendable. The 70-200 has f2.8 and is much heavier and clumsy. If weight matters you will be happy with the 70-300. If f2.8 and best possible IQ matters then 70-200 us your choice.

Lenses / Re: 35mm f2 IS for city photography at night?
« on: February 18, 2014, 01:18:55 AM »
I use the Canon 35 IS for low light shooting in NY. And it is a very good lens for that purpose as well as in general. Compared you to the 24-105 you will gain in IQ and handiness but of course loose some flexibility. I would probably just stay with the 24-105 for your travel.

Canon General / Re: Spot to take pictures of skyscrapers in NY in the dark

The suggestions already mentioned by others are top notch. Also roof top bar at 230 5th avenue is a very good spot for Empire State. Personally I would opt for Top of the Rock.
