Thanks for the suggestions.

Site Information / Money for something
« on: August 19, 2013, 12:53:05 AM »
I take a great deal of pictures at my Kids' sporting and school events. Many parents ask me to try and take some shots of their children. I had an idea of posting these event photos on a website much like the companies do in various running races (5k, 10k, marathon, etc.) and earn some money for my gear. What's the best site to accomplish this task?  Or would be better to pay someone to develop a website for me?

I totally agree on the 24-105 f/4.  I own it and it's a great lens in good light, a good lens in fair light and a poor lens in poor light.

Lenses / Re: 24-105L or 70-200L f/2.8?
« on: April 08, 2013, 07:46:54 PM »
I really like my 24-104 f/4 for general purpose; it's not too heavy and is easy to maneuver. However, at f/4 is does struggle with low light and it often requires a flash. The 70-200 f/2.8 is large, heavy and not easily maneuvered. I didn't think that would be an issue when I first bought it, but the more I used it, the more ease of movement became a factor in selection given a particular project. Both are excellent lenses, however if the 24-105 is your first L lens, you won't be disappointed and can always get the 70-200 in the future.  In addition, the "whites" draw a lot of attention.

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Autofocus not impressive

No elflord, I strictly used it in a custom setting sarcastic mode.

I was on a ski trip away from my kids so I had plenty of time to use the 6D.  I shot it with several different modes and AF adjustments. Too many to list. I rented it for 10 days and did a variety of shooting. My point is for a current Canon model the AF was no improvement over my 550D.

I did rent a 5D m III on a trip to NYC last Thanksgiving and it was everything it was cracked up to be.  My purpose for renting the 6D was to see if my needs could be met with a less expensive body. They were not.

If you read my original post, I rented the 6D to try it out. I did not buy it.  I was seeking other opinions because many have said the 6D's AF was in the same ballpark of the 5D m III. I found this not to be the case with the kit 24-105 f/4.

EOS Bodies / 6D Autofocus not impressive
« on: March 25, 2013, 10:56:53 PM »
I rented a 6D camera body to take helicopter skiing in Canada. I brought my 24-105 f/4, 40 f/2.8, and my 50 f/1.8 lenses. I found the autofocus to be slow with all 3 lenses, especially in lower light. I really experimented by changing many of the autofocus parameters and resetting the rental body to factory settings to make sure nothing was amiss. I found the 6D autofocus to be for the most part as good as my Rebel 550D with each of my lenses. I was really disappointed because a want a new body to replace my Rebel.  Lensrentals.com checked the 6D and found it up to factory specs.  Looks like I may have to pony up for the 5D m III.  Does anyone think the climate and elevation had anything to do with the slow AF?  Or does the 6D really have a mediocre AF?

How can I sign up the price drop notifications?  I want a 5dm3 and my budget is below $3000.
