Lenses / Canon 24 70 2.8 L version I or Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC
« on: July 26, 2013, 02:13:32 PM »
Dear friends,

I have just ordered a 6D body (refurbished) and have around $1K left to buy a lens for it. I am seriously consider to buy a 24-70 range F2.8 zoom lens and cannot decide on which one of the above is better in term of IQ and value. A 3 yrs' old used Canon L is asking on the Craigslist for 1K to 1.2K and I will be able to buy a grey market Tamron for around $900.

Which one should I choose ? Please help.

I owned a Benro travel angel A2682TB1 and it costed my US$200 when I purchased it in Hong Kong 3 years ago. I In general, I like it at lot. Recently, I need one extra for a rather heavy Glideshot portable 4' crane so I searched in the Craigslist and I found One like this - http://www.kamera-digital.com/forum/viewtopic.php?TopicID=11421

Its listed for $15 and I bought it for $10. The only defect I found on this old tripod was a defective screw which I replaced it for 35cents. It was very, very sturdy and could load my camera with battery grip and a 10lb counter weight with no problem. It doesn't come with a ball head but it's fine, I used it for video and I put a video head on it.

If you wanna save some money for you lenses,check in your local Craigslist, and find one like this.

Don't ever attempt to download and put it up for sale. I have the copyright of it. I am serious.

I think the strap is for this camera. hehe

BTW, if you want a camera strap for 2D, 3D, 4D, 8D, 9D or whatever, you may custom order one easily nowadays.

anybody compare this device to the DSLR controller app which can be used on ios as well as android and support wireless with wifi direct feature.
Dslr controller app beta costs less than $10 if you just wanna try it out. However reliability of the app is unknown cos I have not used it myself.

I would suggest a Lytro.  She doesn't have to worry about focusing with this new toy.

The third party grips have a reputation of lasting from 3-6 months, depending on use.  Just buy 10 of them and you'll be set for 3 years.

sources for such a bold claim?

i would love you write not such biased nonsense all the time about third party gear, you propably have never used yourself or any experience with.

i bought my 5D MK2 over 4 years ago and the BG grip i bought for it is still absolutely fine.
the phottix BG for my 550D is from 2010 and the 550D is my cheap "throw around" camera.
the BG is also still absolutely fine.
and im not a weekend shooter....

Lenses / Re: Buy EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS II now or wait until September?

Why do you want a petal hood? Just get the ET-60 that's designed for it...

The EW-63II might fit, it's designed for the 28 f/1.8 (among others) which shares the 58mm filter threads, so it should be close in size. Won't be as useful, since it's not really deep enough though. That's probably the closest you'll get... or just take the ET-60 and cut it to a petal shape if it's that important.

No, the EW-63II won't fit - the number in the hood designates the mount diameter for the hood itself, and a hood with a 63mm diameter hood won't fit on a lens that's got a 60mm hood mount.

As stated, just get the ET-60 or a knock-off version of the same.

ve just looked at this adaptor for the tamron and in the description it seems to start off by saying that even though it will be manual focus, it will confirm focus by the indicator but lower down it says it doesnt confirm focus?


Contact the seller by email and ask if you have a doubt. Normally, they will answer in one or two days.

The shop where I am getting the 1D X does not sell any spare batteries, and my Google skills seem to have deserted me over night. How much is a spare battery for the 1D X, and what model number are they please?
