Lenses / EF 200mm f2 , how much do you use it and for what?
« on: July 07, 2013, 04:11:35 PM »
Hi guys!

Do you feel the 70-200 f2,8 II gets more use than the 200 (if you own both) or is the 200 SO awesome you find uses for it anyway?

I love the 70-200 II, but always had a thing for the 200 f2, but never owned it. I owned the 300 f2.8 (so I'm used to the weight), but that was too long for me.

And forget, "if you really need the extra stop" I want it if it's awesome as it looks  ;D

Thanks!

If you have your camera personally insured wouldn't that policy cover your equipment if it is returned by common carrier to an authorized service facility?  My policy does extend such coverage so I never purchase extra insurance from the carrier.  I am just careful to keep all documentation and receipts so I could prove loss if something were to occur.

I realize all insurance is different but this is something you might want to investigate.

My insurance isn't valid when I send the gear away, and not having it with me under
My supervision...

I was about to send mine in when I discovered there is NO insurance at all with the shipping provided by Canon!

My son has decided he does'nt want have his face on cam AT ALL. But I managed to get a couple today. Here's one shot with the 24-70. Wanted a really punchy light. One 580 in a 60x60 cm softer.



I like it Viggo!

Thanks a lot!

Eml58, that shot with the fire is simply NatGeo quality, truly one of the best nature shots I've seen in years.

Care to share the story behind?

Shot with the 24-70 mk2, it's obviously through glass, so some reflections, but it's still pretty sharp through thick glass. And I worry about filters, lol.

Mine is +1 at both ends, and it was 0 at 35 and 50, and real world shots confirms this as well.

Mine is 2012 edition (with the old style lens cap) and it is much more consistent with sharp results than the 2013 I exchanged due the infamous clicking noise with the zoom ring.

Up close the 24-70 mk2 is noticeably softer than at a meter or more.

Is it build like a squeaky box of yoghurt, or is it metal now? It looks cool enough.

Thanks to everyone who posted their experience with the repair here. It seems it will go without a hitch. Mine is shipping on Monday.

If the sensor came back with dust and hairs I would clean it myself, it was the oil that was the concern.

Too late!  Look what I bought today... my first non Canon.

Just out of curiosity, how does the build quality feel? Is it a solid build like a Canon lens? How does the focus ring feel? (Just interested in knowing how a modern Sigma lens compares in the less-talked-about aspects of lenses...)

I hate everything that's not Canon and I felt the Siggy 35 was VERY well built, beautiful focusing ring and a bing chunky heavy lens that feels as it will take pretty much any abuse except for water .

I almost felt it was a bit too heavy for a 35 though.

Got mines back today, receipt says mirror box modification and repaired faulty/damaged parts lube hook.I gave it a good run at 12fps with no issues sensors spotless :-)

Nice! That's great news! Glad it worked out for you. Mine is going in Monday and I'll update my experience here.

I get mines back tomorrow :-) i asked them what happened they told me the modification was complete so lets hope it comes back with a clean sensor and still properly weather sealed.

I would really appreciate if you would share any findings regarding oil drops on the sensor, and hopefully it's clean. I'm sending mine in on monday, so I can get it back between weekends.
