Hi All,

I though it would be nice to start a Topic based on favourite spots around the internet people use to help them decide, which Canon gear to get.

I found inspiration for this Topic from a post I just replied to. If this has been done before, it doesn't hurt to get get a fresh update.

To start this list is from Rienzphotoz:

1. michaelthementor.com
2. the-digital-picture.com
3. Dave Dugdale's youtube channel
4. thecamerastore tv youtube channel
5. digitalrevtv youtube channel
In addition I also, follow/watch at least dozen other reviewers, infrequently.



I've added these youtube channels:

Matt Granger - (He's a Nikon guy in Canon Clothes... but his views have help me with my 70-200 purchase)
Jared Polin - If you like Kai, this guy must be his US counterpart with substance.
Dan (Learningcameras.com) - Nice and clear. Great video on Canon 5DmkIII vs 6D
Indy Mogul - Top for Indie DSLR film makers! If your into that stuff.

actually the best camera review site is Amazon.com(not DPR crap, I mean Amazon user reviews)
Amazon is great but not troll proof!! I use it frequently!!

Colonial Photo & Hobby is the only camera shop in Central Florida worth a look. They are really nice and carry a good range of stock but can't match B&H prices due to sales tax, having said that B&H didn't use to ship to hotels.

There is another store Southern Photo near Melbourne, but they concentrate on Nikon gear, they are a Nikon Pro agent and have very little Canon gear and their prices are high.
I enjoyed shopping in Colonial. I agree they're the best game in town

F4 sucks, well it does for me personally. Sure I use the 17 TS-E, an f4, a lot, but it is specialised and no real issue as an f4. As a general purpose ultrawide upgrade to the 16-35 f2.8 the focal length is very interesting, but f4 kills it for too many situations. Iso performance does not replace aperture, neither does IS, I want all three.

If you need the wide aperture for boke, certainly. I would still like to see a 14-24 f/2.8 L from Canon at some point in the future. Especially if it can top Nikon's IQ corner to corner.

I wish it was f/2.8...

The price might go near $3000 for that...
I understand that.  ;)


I don't really understand that, but I expect that ... even if it is f/4 ;D
I know that type of glass won't cheap but I'll settle for the f/4

I would not be surprised if this f/4 lens went for $3K given the size of the first few lens elements!

Just out of curiousity, why?  I mean, practically, and not just because you want a collection of f/2.8 or faster lenses :)

24mm is too wide for events & people (where you might want the speed) due to the distortion, so odds are 99% of the use of this will be for landscape.  Landscape is f/8+ most of the time...  And the wide side we already have the 16-35mm f/2.8 for events & people - whose focal length is actually long enough to shoot people without unflattering distortion.

It is possible the f/4 design might reduce cost, size, weight, and actually improve image quality at smaller apertures where this would be used 99% of the time.
I've used the Nikon 14-24mm for events and people. I hoping was that Canon make a zoom similiar to that..yeah yeah the 16-35 good glass but the Nikon outshines it. The 16-35 mm I've tried it and "meh". I agree it would be used mostly for landscape. I have a streak of creativity.... I'm buying it regardless anyhow if this glass become reality. ;D

Animal Kingdom / Re: Where to go near Halifax Nova Scotia?

Peggy's Cove is nice and if you have some time and don't mind doing a little driving, go up to the north island of Nova Scotia and visit Cape Breton National Park and Meat Cove.  It is very pretty up in that area.
If you head to Cape Breton, try to hit the Cabot Trail on a weekday, far less traffic. Louisberg is a nice visit as well.

Peggy's cove is another nice spot. I like the drive in from Head of St Margaret's and the glacial erratics as you get close. You can wander around the area, then have supper in the restaurant near the lighthouse, and wait for sunset.

There is a place near Kentville, I think it's called eagles roost or something like that, where the feed chicken carcasses to the eagles so you can get interesting pictures....

Further down past the Annapolis Valley there are whale watching tours (Digby and Briar island) and I believe they have some bird rookeries tours too.
Thanks Don I plan to travel there in the very near future

Nikon and their legendary 14-24mm f/2.8G ED..

The only wide-angle zooms that Canon makes that come close are 16-35mm f2.8L II
The 16-35 is not close at all. The focal range yes, but not the performance, esp in the corners!
