Lenses / Re: Recommendations

If you are doing events especially weddings, its good to have two bodies.  70-200 with 2x should be ok until you need longer than 400 then you can look at one of the super telephotos.

17-55 f2.8 has superb image quality and you can get the 16-35 if you want to go wider.

Also, do you have speedlite(s)?

Duty free in Hong Kong will prob give you the biggest saving. Just make sure you check prices of both high street stores and eBay / amazon for comparison.

Buying in Hong Kong / Oz will give you an International warranty as opposed to a Uk one so something else to consider.

Also, buying overseas on your credit card may incur currency conversion charges that will add to your final cost.

Good luck. Let us know what you decide to do.

Great shot. Well done

5d III + 300f4 will allow you to shoot with higher ISO to stop indoor action whilst 7d will give you slightly longer reach with 70-200 f2.8 ... interesting dilemma.

Personally, i'd go with the 7d combo esp with the 8fps.

Its normal behavior. After a fair bit of use the memory structure in the card goes awry and the camera takes much more time to access and/or read/write the files.

This is more prone with the SD cards than the CF cards.

The flashing goes away once you do a low format the cards. It is advisable to use the option of a low level format with the SD card in the camera.

When EOS M was first launched, the local Canon shop guys decided to attach it to a EF500 f4 - Looked funny but the images were stunning  ;D

Pretty unlikely I'd say too.

Get the 40d now so you do not miss the shots this season. Keep saving on the side and try to upgrade to a 7d next year.


Lenses / Re: How low will it go? (50L)

How long have you waited to get this lens? Are you missing shots by not having this lens? If you don't need it urgently then by all means wait and see if price drops further.

Personally, I won't be able to put off buying a new L lens for a chance of possibly saving an extra $100 when I'm already paying $1299/$1399.

Hope you get the lens soon and start enjoying it.

IMHO as always

Third party (Chinese) are much cheaper. Initially all you need is a radio transmitter on your 6d and a receiver attached to your Ex430 somewhere off camera.

Try something like this:


Have fun

Yep, get them to spell it otherwise chances are they'll be upset when they see their names in print but spelled incorrectly :)

eBay or Amazon is probably the best bet as stated above. just make sure you give yourself enough time prior to the wedding to get used to the camera controls etc.
