The lens cap of the 8-15 is pretty good. I would not stop buying the lens I want because it can get scratched. Get insurance. Is cheap. And enjoy your lens. Unless you don't really want it. Is a great lens and a lot of fun to use it.
Timmy the 8-15 is a fisheye-zoom, and there's really no way of putting a filter in front of the lens.
Just use duct tape and cardboard to build some kind of "cage" around the lens front and then duct tape a filter to it. Or build some (acrylic)glass cage and put ur camera inside if u wanna go real serious
I enjoy portraits of family & friends mostly on my old 450D, and planning to get an indoor portrait lens addition to my EFS 15-85. Does Sigma 35MM F/1.4 DG HSM really worth the price or should I get the cheap EF 40 f/2.8 STM?
For those of you who have an Ipad.... Canon Singapore has put out a very interesting (and free) app called CanonSGLens, you can searh for it on the apple store...
It gives lens specs, drawings, MTF charts, allows comparisons, has a FOV simulator, depth of field simulator and calculator, etc etc....

i love portraits, one of the reasons why i do photography...
Excuse my ignorance, but what kind of sports is it that you feel that I cannot shoot?Sorry, I don't really get your question.Are you looking for only used cameras?No, but I am looking out for FF cameras which can be used for sports. It's time to upgrade, but I have a major examinations in the coming year which means that I will have less free time to shoot. This also means that I do not really have a pressing want for a new camera.However, some of my friends do the the D700 and love them so much that they will not give them up.I understand why they felt that way. I was reluctant to return the D700. For me, high resolutions are not required since I shoot as a hobby. Also, I am comfortable with high ISOs on the D700 (I would go up to 6400 for theatre since no flash was allowed). The small file sizes (lesser MP) were also welcome. My only regret was not having an opportunity to try shooting sports with the D700.I used to own the D700 with the Nikon 28-300mm lens, which made for a fun all in one set-up, which produced some good results, if you're not pixel peeping.Used to? What do you use now then?
On an unrelated note, is it possible to shoot sports with a 5D2? How much harder is it compared to using a 7D?
I bought the Lens something from spyder. Either my eyes are not good enough or....
I have that Issue, I can not see the fine differences once the setting gets close.
1) do you have to buy a new program for each body ( their website asks you to order for a specific body). My camera is a 5D II, but I have and am still borrowing a 1Ds III for the last three years. Hence would I need two payments and two programs for those. The questiens becomes even more pertinent if I finally Get the 1Dx.
Your purchase allows you to use FoCal on 5 different bodies. You can add or remove bodies a limited number of times, which is to prevent users from cheating, but you can have five at a time.
2) does the program do the callibration for you? (Of course you need to set it up and so forth) But will it set the appropriate values for you in the camera, or would you still have to go through with shooting many shots,to narrow the gap down as with the solution i have today?
The answer depends on the camera body. The 7D and 5D MK II are full automatic, but the 5D MK III and the 1D X cannot have full automatic calibration due to limitations in the Canon SDK. So far, a way to make the calibration fully automatic for those bodies has not been found. You have to follow on screen instructions and change the AFMA value manually between shots, otherwise, its automatic. This actually goes pretty quickly, since they have improved the ability of the software to find the right value with a minimum number of shots and AFMA settings.
they are very tough but not squirrel proof!
