Oh, believe me, the 100L is PLENTY versatile.

Would love to get the MkII, considered the 100-400 too, but they would cost a lot more than £200. And I'll still have a sharp, fast 70-200 for not a lot in comparison.

So I think I'll just get it serviced. It's with Fixation in London who are very reputable.

Hi all.

I put my 17 year old EF 70-200 2.8L lens in for a repair estimate last week and got the quote today.

The problems I was having were the autofocus being a bit shaky and indecisive, plus some strange coloured highlights at the end of hairs in bright sunlight. And, of course the usual calibration stuff.

They are saying that they would like to replace the focusing assembly and a couple of smaller parts to clean it and lubricate it properly.

The trouble is the cost of these repairs... Just under £200 ($300)

Now, I can pick up a brand new one for £825 or a 2.8L IS II for £1350 from overseas.

Is it worth just getting the old girl repaired for a quarter of the cost of a new one?

What would the forum do?

Are those LED head lights? Might not be such a good idea having them shine straight into the lens. I'm thinking about the damage that lasers are known to do to sensors.

To be honest, the last time I saw that effect, it was over the whole image and it meant the sensor was screwed.

Definitely keep an eye on this.

Now that's HDR. Love the bed pic.

ProCameraShop.co.uk has the 500 f4 II for £6984 (after the 3% discount).

And they are based in the UK.

All the time. Tv set to the minimum and the aperture can do what it wants indoors.

Outdoors in good light, Av with Auto ISO.

I'd rather have a some noise to clean up than miss the shot altogether.

Always export as sRGB for use on the Internet. Some browsers and sites will handle ProPhoto but most won't.

Come on, you must have a scanner in the house..?  ;D

There are trials for just about all of them.

Skip them and buy the Nik Collection.  8)

Dear Darson

Please don't take your baby on a plane.

Yours, the rest of the plane.

Yeah, London Drugs is just like Shoppers Drug Mart here in Canada, except London Drugs as an usually great electronics section for a drugstore.

I'm sure I'll become acquainted with it soon, as I'm moving from London, England to Mississauga soon. :)
