Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 50 Art "squeaky" AF sound

Ugh sorry to read - went through the same rigmarole with the 35mm - highly recommend if you're in the 2 week time frame to get a 3rd replacement lens or opt for the Canon 50mm 1.2!! :)

Sigma 35mm Squeak!

EOS Bodies / Re: Thinking about upgrading to a 6D from a 60D. Thoughts?

I own both, still shoot with the 60d & 6D - both yield excellent images -  at this point I've learned each bodies limitations and where they excel...if need you cash to cover the 6D then sell it - but if you dont the need money - why not keep them both:

Lenses / Re: Filter price disparity
« on: December 08, 2014, 09:22:43 PM »
So, when the Canadian dollar got larger than the American a few years back, it pulled the pants down on the publishing and auto industries' price gouging of Canadians. Seems that camera/lens makers got the message too in large part. But why not filter manufacturers? Why are most filters two to three times the price in Canada what they are in the US? Anyhow, I'd never, ever buy a new filter in Canada. It's ridiculous. Rant over.

Preach! As a Canadian who happens to reside in the US - why does it cost 4X-5X the amount to fly directly into Ontario?!?  - while I can simply pay 200 - 300 round trip to fly to DET, BUF or ROC and rent a car and drive over...I agree with your stance, I highly recommend you purchase all your camera gear in the US! (but STILL rent your gear from Lensrentals Canada!!)

return of the polar / arctic vortex (in Minnesota):


-1 Not true about f2.8 and faster lenses!  We have had this discussion before.  Stop making assumptions from reading specs and rent a f/2.8 lens and try it.  I currently own 5 f/2.8 and faster lenses and the 6D autofocus is extremely fast and accurate with the center point and OK with the outer points.  I've owned and sold f/4 zooms (24-105L and 70-200 IS) and the f/2.8 versions I own now focus faster and more accurately.  My keeper rate for non sports/action is excellent.

Shhhh stop telling everyone, lets others continue propagating the myth!

Hey guys. I would like to upgrade to FF, but I don't know which camera I should get. I make much photos ans videos. Videos often in good light, photos often in bad light. I would like to have the 5D III for sport photography, but this one is way too expensive for me and so I prefer the 6D. My Question: Would it worth the money to buy the 6D? Is the 6D faster than the 60D?

Any suggestions for me?  :-\

Hi I own both models, and use both extensively - as you may now know the 60d is faster than the 6d, faster shutter, and no flash sync limitations, however the 6d yields superior image quality that is on parity with 5d3 - keep your 60d and get the 6d if you discover that you No longer need the 60d for extra reach / speed then sell it!  Ping me if you have any questions, thx.

Also just checked out Dustin's video portion of the review and it was concise and excellent. Good speaking ability there!

Beautiful shots with that 135L, hanifshootsphotos!
It's one of those lenses that always deliver. If I owned one it would follow me to the grave.

Its a fantastic tool, overall image rendering is top notch, am considering getting the 200mm 2.8 II (or if I get a bonus the f2 version)

Usually when I travel for business I check the local Craigslist ads for Camera gear...and ran into this one for Columbus OH...according to the ad:

" wife was mad at me then she thrown them on the floor "

Here's the original advert:
