So please explain how that is "outperforming" it?

You won't/can't get images like that from either of those two lenses.

I see two options for you if you want to make the jump to FF..

Sell 7D and lens, buy 5D2 + a lens or two

KEEP 7D and buy a used 5Dc (they can be had for 500 or less) + 17-40L.

Lenses / Re: Question regarding constant aperture lenses.
« on: January 23, 2013, 06:28:04 AM »
 "An f-stop is the ratio between the focal length of the lens and the *apparent* size of the lens opening as viewed through the front. It must take into account the magnification factor of all lens elements in front of the diaphragm, because it is the size of the opening that the light "sees" as it passes through the lens, not the actual physical diameter of the diaphragm opening. It is this fact that allows companies to make constant aperture zoom lenses which maintain a constant f-stop when the focal length changes, because such lenses are designed so that the magnification factor (diopter value) of all elements in front of the diaphragm changes as focal length is changed to hold the aperture value constant."

Lenses / Re: Step-up Ring, Filter...

Larger Filters on Smaller lenses with a Step Up ring, you're never going to have a problem, except if you want to use a hood. Sometimes you can get the hood on and *then* mount the filter, sometimes you can't even do that. But if you don't want a hood, there's no problem at all. (I'd recommend getting another lenscap, $2 on ebay, the size of your filter, so that you don't have to unscrew everything to put the original lenscap on).

Hell, a filter with a step up ring is kinda a hood!!  :P

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D - How bad is it? Really?
« on: January 23, 2013, 06:21:50 AM »
but I also realize that the standards on this forum is VERY high.

Wrong. Most of the people on this forum are pixel peepers who don't enjoy photography. The 7D will be a huge upgrade over that 30D in exactly the areas you need it to be. Buy one and enjoy for years to come...

People forget that the man makes the tool, not the other way around... Catch my drift?

If not, I know someone who runs a very profitable business on a twice outdated camera, the Canon 5D... Seems to do just fine.

Maybe instead of tubes, get the 45 or 90 ts/e lenses..

Lenses / Re: Buying used lens
« on: December 26, 2012, 06:40:20 AM »
buy it in person. try before you buy... price seems in line to me though.. According to google that is 1855 dollars which is only 145 less than I bought mine new last christmas from Adorama...

So maybe just buy a new one...

1st world problems...  ::)

I have a 14mm 2.8 II and the 24mm 1.4 II.... Would I get rid of them for the 14-24 zoom? Tough thoughts there..

Lenses / Re: New Tilt-Shift Lenses in 2013 [CR2]
« on: December 08, 2012, 11:01:30 AM »
But I don't quite get why someone would choose the 45mm TS-e over the 50mm f/1.2?  Autofocus, bokah, low-light...

because one is a TS and the other is not... Two completely different lenses. I don't quite get why anybody would consider those two lenses to be competition for each other...
