thanks guys for all the replies . I'm gonna go with 100-400 . so whats the lowest price you've seen on them ? If i remember , last time during christmas time it was 1350 $'s ?

Hi Vikram, I am glad you made your decision which lens you wish to buy, the Canon EF100-400mm is a very good lens for wildlife photography, I have been using it for about 4 years, the "dust hog" you have been hearing from the others aren't true. The lens is partially weathershield and have dust and moisture resistance. Trust me you will love the lens.

While I can't say much on Sigma because I dont owned one, I recommend either the Canon EF100-400mm L IS USM or Canon EF400mm f/5.6 L. If you want flexibility go for zoom 100-400mm because of the zoom, IS and weathersealing, where is the prime 400mm will give you slightly sharper image and better bokeh and cheaper compare to the first. I used tripod for most of my bird photo when I used the prime.

But at the end of the day, which ever lens you use, you must learn to familiar your self with the lens. As for me, since I have both, the lens selection is very much depends when and where either lens will give me a better images.

Attached is sample photo using the Canon EF400mm f/5.6 (1/80, f/10, ISO 640) using Canon EOS 7D.

I think you need to upgrade the lens firmware.

I have a 60D...

I think you need to go to Canon Authorised service center to upgrade the firmware if you dont have 5D3.

I think I will get the 24mm - the focal length will fit the majority of shots I want to do.

You can probably stitch in the few cases where you might need the 17 then. That is quite a big investment to keep in your bag for occasional use.

Or rent if ever needed.

I loved my 45 mm TS-E. I still have the 90, never had the 24 or 17.


I would like you advise, for product or food, which is better the 45mm TS-E or the 90mm TS-E?

Appreciate your feedback.

EOS Bodies / Re: 1DX or 1D4

Thanks Everyone

I think I might be going for 1D4 due to price, it is still a good body and as far as the price is concern, it's half of what 1DX is currently. I could save some money as well.

EOS Bodies / 1DX or 1D4
« on: July 31, 2012, 10:14:47 AM »
Hi Everyone

I just want to hear an opinion from the forum readers, before I decided to buy which camera. Currently I am looking to buy the 1D bodies, I shoot birds, wildlife & landscape and I am not a wedding photographer.

I like the 1D4 because it offers good AF, reasonable ISO and autofocus available at f/8 and I don't mind getting a used body (it's cheaper). On the other hand the 1DX a new AF (autofocus only up to f/5.6) and ok I admit I like the new feature such as built in HDR for my landscape and multiple exposure (something interesting), but it's pricey.

So, in your opinion which one is better to get the 1DX or 1D4?
