"The 24-70/2.8 II and 70-200/2.8 IS II are my two most frequently used lenses for my three kids"

These are the only two zoom I have and if you have the funds then go for it. They will work really well with your 6D.

stick some black tape across each side of the VF? :)  :P

What would we ever engineer without black tape (or duct tape)?

+1 for DIY black tape masking.

Saw this beauty parked next to my car in our staff car park - had to get a shot.

It was really dark and was worried someone might run me over as i was almost horizontal on the tarmac.

85mm, 1/160, f1.2, ISO2000.

I have only had mine for a few days but so far I think its great. I love the look it gives wide open. Its plenty sharp and the AF accuracy has been dead nuts on. In short: its a lot better than I was expecting with all the interweb negativity out there.

Glad to hear it - do share some photos :)

I posted a few in the lens gallery yesterday.

Cool - looks like you had a nice day out :)

Hey someone's out to get me!  Seems I've been stuck at 819 posts for a long time - is there no hope of getting beyond a 1DMark 4 >:( :( ;)  What gives?

Jack

You have yet 178 posts to go to get to 1Dx. Next target is the 300mm f/2.8 II  ;D

Thats 2000 posts and at 4000 its 400 2.8, 8000 is 600 4.0 II and finally at 10k one joins Neuro as CR Geek!

Why jump to the conclusion that it was irrational?  Maybe he deserved it.
No man deserves this. This is more worst than having his wiiwii cut off  :-\


Ha ha but seriously!

Don't get me wrong, I'm very attached to my Canon gear but I'm even MORE attached to my wiiwii!

As much as this is a golden opportunity for some ghoulish more or less-humour, I'll simply opine that a divorce seems imminent.

Jim

...and after the divorce he lived happily ever after with his shiny new 1Dx and an assortment of Ls.

The end.

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70 f/4L IS disappointing?
« on: July 27, 2014, 10:11:17 PM »
I too have both 70-200 f/4 L IS and 70-200 f/2.8L IS II for the mere reason that when I bought the first the second didn't exist yet!

However there are cases where I need the 2.8 and cases where I don't so I can do with a lighter lens.

So I keep them both!


Indeed...  I bought the 70-300L as a travel telezoom, after owning the 70-200/2.8L IS II for a while.



I bought the 7-300L first - as travelzoom (occasionally sports in good daylight) and only after that I bought th 70-200 f/2.8 IS II - what a great zoomlens with wonderful IQ. It came very handy when shooting indoor musicals with limited and changing lights.
I have a few lenses in the same focal length but all for different reasons and pusposes....ok I suffer - a bit - from GAS  ;D


I've got the 70-300L for travel too. It collapses to a very manageable size and has excellent image quality too  :)
Can you please stop mentioning how useful for travel the 70-300L is?  ;D


70-300L on travel:



Hi tron,  did I mention that 70-300L is a very useful for travel - relatively light and compact too?  (Just kidding)

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D now marked as DISCONTINUED at Amazon
« on: July 27, 2014, 09:59:07 PM »
I heard Canon is going to one-up the mirror less crowd by delivering the 7D2 as the first mirrorless *and* sensorless camera.

Bingo.  Nikon has made spotting scopes for years, and Canon will use the 7DII as an entrĂ©e into the spotting scope market.

The key difference is, Canon's offering will use revolutionary technology to allow you to save the pictures through MemoryVision.  Each 7D2mv camera comes with a sketch pad, professional colored pencil set, and a lifetime subscription to a collaborative interactive training website developed in tandem by Luminosity.com and Canon... because the human brain has INFINITE MEGAPIXELS!

... and infinite DR too ;)

Lenses / Re: Help me to decide: 35 vs 50mm
« on: July 27, 2014, 03:55:24 AM »
For my type of photography,  I'd prefer the 50mm focal length.  Ditto to members who have suggested checking your exif data to determine your most used FL.

I'd like to see a high MP FF -  something to replace my 5D III for studio use. But I'm in no hurry as I'm perfectly happy with my current gear.
