Lenses / Re: What's your favorite Canon lens and why?
« on: February 22, 2012, 06:14:29 PM »
That is really tough! I have an EF 70-200 2.8 L IS II that I LOVE for its versatility & amazing IQ (sharpness & bokeh). I just bought my first prime though.... an EF 35 L. That lens, attached to my 7D, is a GREAT lens!! Image quality, check, super thin DOF, check, AWESOME bokeh, check & all in a good & usefull focal length! So, as for now I have to say my favorite lens in my 35L. :)

To the best of my knowledge, the last time there was an annular eclipse sunset in what we know as the United States was on December 18th, 1740! This is a RARE event!!

Is there anyone else that is planning on shooting this rare event? Is anyone traveling to be better centered with the alignment, &/or to a better photographic location? What locations are you thinking about?

I own a 7D & a 17-55. I am very pleased with the 17-55! Image quality is VERY good!! I would say that it is L quality optics. Even at f/2.8 I still find myself bumping the ISO up to an undesirably high range fairly often. I also own a 35 L & that lens is just an AMAZING lens!!! Attached to a APS-C crop-body it is equivalent to a 56mm on a FF. So, it is a good normal focal length lens, it just lacks the versatility of the zoom.

Lenses / Re: What lens for 7D EF-S or L

I own a 7D, 17-55, 35 L & 70-200 II L. The 17-55 is a GREAT lens! The optics are L quality & the body is rugged....just not L rugged. You definitely do get what you pay for! I have shot with my buddies Tokina 11-17 & it is extremely wide! I love that lens! The 17-55 is a GREAT general purpose lens & I think that it would make a good landscape lens, but the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0 L USM Lens would probably be a better lens for what you have described your needs are. Plus, it is $300 cheaper. The L quality is VERY ADDICTING!! Lenses are the real investment! Canon might make the same version of a lens for 10 years or more, as long as you take care of them the resale value is always better on a lens than a body, bodies wear out & need replaced more often & the image you take can only be as good as the lens.

Did anyone else notice the paint brush button & the "RATE" button on the left side of the camera? I'm wondering if it will have a frame rate that is selectable like the 1DX?!? Also, it looks like the CF card door isn't wide enough to enclose dual cards.
