Canon General / Re: Europe trip, 1-2 months
« on: September 13, 2012, 08:57:01 PM »
While 4-8 weeks seems like a long period of time you are looking at decent size continent that probably couldn't be more diverse. It's kind of the same question that you get from Europeans traveling to the US. They often do the same thing where they either drive cross country (without much time to actually see and experience much) or criss cross from coast to coast to check of the stereotypical tourist attractions from their list.

If that's what you want people have given you the list already. And I'm not saying that Paris and Zermatt aren't worth visiting. Quite to the contrary. Only I would stick to 2, maybe 3 places that really interest you and get to know them better and beyond recreating the pictures and mental images that you already find at your local travel agent or on "Rick Steve's Europe" show.

To me traveling has always been about learning how places tick and where they're coming from. And I personally have a thing for putting things into historical contexts to understand the world a bit better. The one time I did one of those "20 countries in 10 days" undertakings with two very good friends we actually followed the path of one of the crusades with the added bonus of one of the friends being quite the expert on this subject. Not that the local food, drink and girls were dismissed along the way...Those were the days...

And I would stick to the 50 and the 24-70 and leave the rest at home.

I understand what you mean but, i'm only 20 and will be 21 when I'll star the trip so I will have a looooot of time (I hope so haha)  to do it again.. I'll try to choose maybe 10-15(max) places with my Girlfriend to have enough time enjoying it. And for the gear, I'll bring the 8-16 because of the unique perspective it can achieve,for landscapes I'll do some panos with the 24-70, and the 120-300 is a Huge lens I know, but considering the 24-70 as my second longuest focal, I can't not bring the 120-300 because if I miss some long shots, i'll be a little mad at myself

Again comparing oranges to apples, the canon zoom's brand new, with a better camera that is also almost brand new, compared to 2 lenses that went out some of years ago and a brand new camera that is ''worse''

Thank you all!
i'm starting to plan the trip, it's gonna be from april trough may, since it's the least expensive season and there's less tourists(even tough I know there will a lot anyway).
I know this is not a long trip for all Europe but I will choose the places(cities and countries) I will go to  (with my girlfriend) by looking where there's more opportunity to take picture and have wonderful memories. So for sure I will miss a lot of stuff, but I want to enjoy every place I will go.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sony A99 24MP Full Frame Press Release

IMO If Sony continues like this and extends its lense line up, it could steal the camera market to Nikon and Canon. They do everything consumers are asking for, if only canon was doing like this

Canon General / Europe trip, 1-2 months
« on: September 12, 2012, 01:51:28 AM »
Well the title says it all. I'll do a trip in Europe (all of its countries including Russia) for a period of 1 to 2 months and want to know where you guys have been and where would you recommend me to go, places that worth to go and take PICTURES.
 I'll take a (almost)universal train pass so I can go everywhere.
Beautiful landscapes, train stations, cities, zoo's, library, castles,nice architecture,bridges,historicals sites, waterfalls,mountains,nice cruises.. as you might understand, everything that makes a nice photo is welcome in suggestions!
Even if you've never been into the old continent I want your ideas!
I'll bring all my important photo stuff(tripod,remote,8-16sigma,24-70 tamron,50 1.4 sigma,120-300 60D) so no type of pictures is excluded.
Thaaank you.

Lenses / Re: new ziess 55mm, redefining?

I'm sure it will be a great piece of glass, but will likely be around 2500 and more

EOS Bodies / Re: Nikon user Swapping to Canon with a 5D3
« on: August 31, 2012, 04:23:09 AM »
Really? Nikon doenst have good FX lenses? I thought it was pretty similar to Canon..minus a "few" special ones…
But there's 1 lens i wished Canon's not the best lens but i think it makes a great travel lens for FF…the 28-300…that's something i wish Canon had..something similar at least but none..
Joke right? anyway the only lens a lot of canon shooters are missing is the 14-24 as previously said.Also the 200-400 but the canon one exists.

Lenses / Re: Canon500mm f4 IS II - should I order from Camera Canada
« on: August 29, 2012, 08:14:28 PM »
I just bought sigma 120-300 from them. Only a 7 day return policy but anyway the lens is under a 10 years garanty from sigma canada. Great service and shipping you'll have the  Canon canada garanty which is the same of the USA one .

I'd be a bit concerned about the lack of support from Canon.  As you note, Canon no longer sells parts or services the lens, so you will need to go to a third party and hope they have parts if you need one.
I'd tend to look really hard at the Sigma zoom, maybe even rent one to try.
I agree with this, I just bought the 120-300 (and here in canada 10 years warranty) donnu for the USof A. It's super sharp ansd I know theres a lot aof complains about issues with sigma lenses but I have 3 of them (8-16, 50, 120-300) and they're all perfect (except focus jumps a little bit on the 50. The 120-300 meets a perfect focal range for fiel sports as soccer football rugby etc. focus is fast and the 2 IS types are  great. Couldn't ask for more, and the lens is 2999(here in canada) and 3199 at BH. the cheapest 300 2.8 available

Im am myself an enthusiast and I learn a lot here. and even if people are wrong about something they're not here to be  insulted or to be pretentious, they are here for the love of taking pictures and to add some knowledge or giving people some of their own knowledge, this is a rumor site to know everything little thing about future canon stuff,  and it's wonderful as it is. these are forums, if you don't like those "amateurs work" just tell them by giving constuctive comments.And YES there are photographers. (sorry english is not my first language) Help us by showing  your work ;) :)

I can't return it I work in the great North  and I ordered it in an ontario store(aden camera) and their policy is 10 days.. and I'm from Quebec so..Ad yes it does decenter the image.. I'm gonna  try it with Tamron canada when I  come back home.

Ok  I just cheked and it's the VC.. no I was not using a tripod.. it always does it

I just got the new 2.8 VC lense. Everything is perfect except one thing. When the auto focus is on, it is fast and focuses well, but the image jump to the right a little..Right after the focus as stopped, the image makes a little jump t the right. I have a 60d, so no micro adjust...
