I bought the 16-35 over the 17-40 on the basis of having buyers remorse had I bought the 17-40 :-/

I'm not looking forward to the choice between the 24-105 and 24-70 f2.8 as I suspect I'll end up with both, but current plan is to buy what I really want when I can afford it, rather than work up with intermediate models.  Currently working on prioritising over the next few years a 8-15 & 24-70 f2.8 to add to my 16-35 & 135, then hopefully add a 24/35 f1.4 and a 100-400 further down the line

Hmmm... of the top of my head, I'm thinking, confirmation of the 200-400 1.4x shipping, plus a 50mm f1.8 IS & 85mm f2.0 IS

I tend to share the view of TDP on this one, why buy into a system like Canon who are in the business of "glass", then go buy a 3rd party lens - I can understand with basic DSLR's or specific lenses that canon don't do, like the 200-500 f2.8, but a 3rd party 24-70 or 70-200 just strikes me as odd when the Canon options are so good.

Folks, not looking for a 70-xxx, I shoot wide and portrait mainly - the 135L suits my "L" telephoto needs just fine ;-)

To clarify, I'm talking about the. 24-70mm f2.8 not the f4 IS, which as said above, although I'm interested in this lens, I'm struggling to see the advantage over the 24-105

Lenses / 24-70 or 24-105
« on: January 06, 2013, 12:43:01 PM »
Recently bought myself a 6D, stepped out a few days later and picked up a 16-35mm, I held off the 24-xx lens as I'm unsure what I really want or need.  So I've a 16-35, a 50 (f1.4), a 135L and a 70-300 non L

I like the idea of IS and reach on the 24-105, but can't help but feel I'd get buyers remorse if I got that over the 24-70, so struggling and coming to the conclusion that I'd like to have both...  But which first, would the step from 24-105 to a 24-70 be so small I'd get buyers remorse, would a reverse of this make me feel I'd got more in the IS & 71-105 extra reach ? 

Help !!!!

I'm really hoping for a new 50mm EF lens.

My bets are on a 50mm soon, but a f1.8 IS in a similar design and price range to the recent 24, 28 & 35 IS lenses

EOS Bodies / Re: Camera (Body Only) or Camera with Bundle Kit
« on: January 04, 2013, 09:39:18 AM »
I would defend the 18-55 against the 15-85 and 18-135 on price alone.

The kit price over the body only is 10's of dollars.

Agreed, for the extra cost, the 18-55mm is almost a throw away lens and pretty good for the money.  I later upgraded to the 15-85 for extra width and reach when I had learnt the basics and felt ready to move on.  Still got the 18-55mm, which I'm about to sell with the camera it came with as a kit, perfect starter camera for a newbie.

Any movement on this ?  Does anyone know if Tapatalk works with Canon Rumors forum database ?

Lenses / Oops, did it again !
« on: January 04, 2013, 07:42:57 AM »
So there I was, nice looking deal on a second hand Canon 17-40mm lens, down to the shop, the lens offered just the right focal range for me on my 6D, but the lens looked well used and had loose rings...  Asked how of tern they had them in, quite often came the reply, what about the 16-35 I asked, oh we don't get many of those second hand...  Can I try one please ?  Out comes a 16-35mm II, onto the camera, snap, out comes the credit card for a new lens. Naughty me. ;-)

I'm guessing many of us do this with camera equipment, what's your tale and did you get into trouble with your significant other half ?

The conclusion about sums up my view of the 6D, great picture quality without the complexity of the 5DIII

Have you tried the 50mm on your 6D, mine feels very usuable now compared to on my previous crop camera.  Alternatively, you could try a cheap and cheerful. f2 35mm or the 40mm pancake ?
