Lenses / Re: Educate me about why 70mm <> 70mm...
« on: January 05, 2013, 02:14:18 PM »
They cheat ... a little.

Canon's 100-400 at 400mm is reported to have less magnification than fixed focal length EF400mm f/5.6L.

The reported focal length is 360 to 370mm. So it is about 10% less!

10% less at 70mm means 63mm (I guess this is worst case).

All the same the 16-35mm f/2.8L (version I) is reported to be wider that 16-35mm f/2.8L II.

Maybe I should write an article for the site on TS-E use as few people seem to know how to get the best out of these extraordinary lenses

+1
+1 (actually + 1000000)  When it is done not when it is simply announced  ::)

Calling it the Canon 1Ds mk IV makes more sense to me than calling it the Canon 3D
Or 1Ds X

and my workhorse 70-200 2.8 (I never ever leave home without that.)
OP said: Traveling light is a priority so can't really take a big tele and to be honest I don't really shoot over 100mm that often(not yet anyway).

Wow! It's now official!  ;) Enjoy with your camera. Did she find out about the charged battery? I guess not  ::)

It is awesome, especially paired with my 70-200 IS II...  Nope, she had no idea, but i think she charged it too, as it was not put in the box as i had put it! :) all is good!
In that case she must have really wondered why the battery has charged in no time at all  ;D

I'd get at least a TS-E lens (17 or 24) a 35 1.4L and 13mm 2L.

13mm 2L?

Now there's a lens I'd sell a kidney for! :P

I dunno what it is....but I want one  :P

"2L ...the final frontier... Where no L has gone before".
OK OK I meant 135mm f/2 L But you knew that ...   :-[
