My 50D and the 28-135 kit lens that came with it.

you slowly start buying gear and one day your gear is more expensive than your first car.
…and then one day, you buy a single lens that is more expsnsive than your first car.
In fact, if you want to really pick nits, consider that an SLR stands for Single Lens Reflex. The fact that it is a Single Lens camera must mean that it should be set apart from what? Multi Lens cameras? I'm guessing yes, since there were cameras made way back that did indeed have multiple lenses, esp movie cameras. So the Single Lens part has been somewhat redundant for even longer, correct?
I was wondering if anyone out there is using a Canon 17-40mm lens with a high (i.e. 10 stop) ND filter. I'm thinking of building a small set of 82mm ND filters (separate, not variable - probably a 4 and a 10 stop to start with) along with step rings so I can use it on all my glass.
I guess the question is two-fold:
Is anyone using strong ND filters with this lens and do you see any vignetting on the 17mm end?
Any ramifications to using an 82mm ND filter and step ring to put it on the 77mm thread of the 17-40 lens?
TIA for any info.
FWIW this lens has a rear 'gel' filter holder so you can use tiny gel filters that cause no vignetting at all
Never tried it though myself
I'd wait a few months if I was you for Nik.
I suggest that you upgrade only to a larger sensor body.
It is just a waste of money to buy another camera having the same size sensor IMO.
I regularly carry my 5d3 and 70200 2.8 ii on a black rapid strap (both the double and the spot version) with absolutely no problems or worrys.
I usually keep it attached to the tripod mount just so that it is more evenly balanced
ditto, I carry the 100-400L with the 5D3 (similar in size to your combo) with the RS-7 and jave absolutely no issues or worries. I leave it on the tripod mount at all times. Its just so much more comfortable with a 5+ lb setup on your shoulder as opposed to your neck like the canon strap.
