at least its got a lens hood as part of the package, a lot that canon could learn from on many lenses possibly    :P
As far as I am aware, all "L" lenses come with a hood (if one can be used with the lens, anyway) and a pouch or other container. (The 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II comes with a very nice zip-up white semi-stiff-fabric carrying container.)

Also, some time ago on here, it emerged that in some markets (far-east, IIRC) at least some of the non-L lenses come with hoods, but not here in the UK.


Its the Non L Series lenses I was meaning mainly......but I'm sure I cam across an article not so long ago on a site selling on eof the L Series lenses where the hood was extra

congrats, enjoy it :)

I also went from 350D to FF camera (but 6D) in January, aaand... its different  ;)
my 350D now sits on the shelf and I'm playing with the idea of converting it for IR photography, I'm just not sure I like IR photos that much and whether I shouldn't rather keep the good old 350D unmolested as a backup should 6D break, or for my girlfriend, or for going to some sandy beaches, shabby places etc. I don't want to bring 6D to


yeah,put the equipment up for sale...but still wondering whether too keep it myself seeing theres a Sigma 150-500mm with Optical Stabilisation (and with the crop factor is effectively 240mm-800mm)...have got some decent photos when sat at the opposite end of a playing field

I'm not sure the 8mp crop camera will give you more reach than when you crop the picture of a 22pm FF to the same size, the IQ will be even better (as explained in many Neuro's posts) and so far I'm right that the sigma is FF compatible I don't think that reach is a reason to keep 350D... then again, for what I could now realistically get for it I wont sell mine and rather keep it (for what I wrote earlier)


Cheers Stig, for reminding me to check the lens.    ;D......As the Sigma only has a 'white dot' at the camera mount end, I was in the full belief that it would only work on the 350D which has both the 'red and white dots' on the camera body mount to align the lens......doh!!      ::)

Well, thats me not selling the old equipment any more!   8) ;D ;D ;D

Loch Katrine - Scotland 2010

That is beautiful! What a treat!

It was, luckily the 1st day of a 5 day stay around the Lochs (but so cold on the front of the steamship on the loch).....as we had snows in April that year, didn't even think I was going to get to travel to the hotel never mind drive round the place.

Only a little saturation needed on the photo to bring out the colours of the treeline

Congratulations! May I ask why you went with the 5D MIII instead of 6D?

It was a coin toss....but seeing I mainly do sports photography, went for the FPS and as the camera is going to be with me for a while...I opted to go that little extra  (still have my original film camera Olympus OM-10 - stuck in a cupboard, and have the Canon 350D which has just been put away or for possible sale with its lenses)


Rienzphotoz: got the 24-105 F/4 IS USM

Watch out ! They drive at the wrong side of the road !

Its the rest that drive on the wrong side of the road....the reasons behind driving on the left is back to the old horse and carriage, knights day where most people in the world are right handed and therefore hold their weapon (sword, pistol etc) in their right hand and hence the reason to drive on the left

If you are born in England (part of Great Britain) doesn't that also make you British? Wasn't it called the British Empire and not the English Empire? I watched the video...informative and entertaining. :)


The British Empire comprised the dominions, colonies, protectorates, mandates and other territories ruled or administered by the United Kingdom....(places like India, some of the Carribean Islands etc)

with various reviews of the 6D video stuff, I can only presume a lot of post-processing was done on this
