Canon General / Re: Have G.A.S. and can't to get rid of it!!
« on: July 11, 2014, 06:40:26 PM »
There are only four possible outcomes from a severe case of G.A.S. - (1) near happiness once you get enough gear, (2) bankruptcy, (3) divorce, or (4) bankruptcy and divorce ;D

If you can stay on the edge of (1) while coming close to, but avoiding (2) and (3), you're doing well!
Well put..LOL. Have 1 trying to avoid 3. I wouldn't let it get to 2 or 4. If she knew how much $$ in gear I had I would at 3 and 5. (5=DEATH)

Lenses / Re: Canon L or Tamron/Sigma advice
« on: August 20, 2013, 10:36:15 PM »
Thank you everyone for your input. I appreciate everyone's input in making my decision since this site allows me to get advice from those much more knowledgeable than myself. This is truly just a hobby for me but with 4 young grandchildren... I ordered the Sigma 35 1.4 to compare to my Canon 35L . Everyone says the Sigma is sharper at 1.4 but some people prefer the bokeh of the Canon. Guess I will find out in a couple days.

I am leaning toward the Canon 24-70 mk II will probably have to wait just a tad bit longer unless a real nice rebate or refurbished with 20%+ coupon from canon hits.. Seems like more quality issues on the Tamron than the Sigma and fewest issues with Canon.( Maybe it is just me but that's how it seems to me.. Nobody is perfect and they all have failure/DOA units).  I am highly considering renting both of them for a couple days to compare how they perform to make my final decision. ....Everyone's agrees the Canon 24-70 mkii  is that good or at least better than the other choices.. so I must ponder this longer.
   Maybe its me but I got used to having all Canon lenses  (Used Tokina/Sigma in past but preferred Canon L glass) Got rid of everything not  Canon and now I considering going back to Sigma/Tamron. The competition seems to be getter better to give Canon a run for the $$ it seems.

To Everyone THANKS for your input!

Lenses / Canon L or Tamron/Sigma advice
« on: August 20, 2013, 11:03:54 AM »
Hi... I  have the Canon  5D markiii and I already have the Canon 24-105 f4L, and the Canon 24-70 2.8L markI and Canon 35L. My question is.. should I keep these or trade them for the Tamron 24-70 VI DC and Sigma 35 1.4. Don't know if I can justify the 24-70 markii  at $2299 when I can get both tamron 14-70 vi and Sigma 35 1.4 for less than the 24-70 markII. Is the MarkII that much better than the tamron??
Appreciate your input!!

Thanks in advance,
Joe
