Lenses / Re: 16-35 f/4L IS with EF 35 f/2 IS
« on: February 25, 2015, 10:36:05 AM »
It totally depends on your needs.
I used the 35 f/2 IS for indoor photography of ice sculptures at 800 ISO. With the 16-35 the ISO would be higher though it is not really a big issue for a 6D but if you like to keep ISO low...

Lenses / Re: Introducing the Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II

It is a wonderful lens. Though vignetting is more present than the 70-300L but not so much to worry about. I also noticed that the IS is more noisy than with the 70-300L. Did anyone (who owned the 70-300L) noticed that as well? Or is that my copy of the 100-400L II? Is that something to worry about?  :-\

...... http://photoinf.com/General/Johannes_Vloothuis/landscape_composition_rules.html I don't think it makes sense to do art or photography by a set of rules, but it's an interesting read because for me it's a different way to think about paintings/photos.
Agree. It is very subjective. If everbody in the past would stick to 'rules', there would not have been a development in art.

Any comments are appreciated.

I'm  not commenting individually, but you gotta watch this before doing "from behind" shots, floating heads or teal-orange posters :-) ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXJiBkFgprQ

The 70-300L is of 2010. It is an excellent lens with modern IS, great IQ. It can handle high resolution as well. I don't expect an upgrade for this lens in the next 10 years.
The combo 70-200 plus TC seem to yield better results at aprox 300:

Soo... ā€Lā€ does not stand for exeLense?

The 70-200 is about 2000 euro. The 1.4x is about 400 euro. Together it makes a whole different price class than the 70-300L. The 70-300L is aimed as quality telezoom for travel. It is light (much lighter than a 70-200+1.4x), short and the IQ can compete with the more expensive zooms like 70-200, so it may not be that good but IQ is close to that. An excellent lens.
