I bet that the Ti will be left collecting dust now that you got the 6D, so there is not much point in keeping it.

I would save for the 70-200 2.8 IS II. Although I also love the 135L (which is half the price), the 70-200 will give you more versatility. During receptions or ceremonies you can not always move around without constraints, a good zoom allows you to capture more moments that could have been gone if you would have to move into position first. As said by others, the IQ of the 70-200 II is great, only donwsides are price, weight and the fact that is quite conspicuous.

Just got this lens a couple weeks ago to compliment my 600II and hopefully mostly retire my 100-400.  These shots are from the Yukon Wildlife Preserve near Whitehorse, Yukon Canada.  The sheep is bare lens, the arctic foxes and the Canadian lynx are with the 1.4IIITC and the Caribou is with the 2.0IIITC.  All shot handheld.

Great shots; It seems you could get very close to get these shots.

HDR of St Mary's Cathedral in Sydney.

The building pops out nice, but you might want to fix the slight pink color cast in the right overexposed part of the sky. Have you tried a b/w version of this image?

Very nice. Reminds me of some of the things I saw in the National Geographic Masters of Photography series in iTunes University. Anyone else watch these series? If not, I can highly recommend!

I like the 3rd one the best; I has the most balanced composition in my view.

Depends on the size of the items and your working distance.


Whenever possible I would use something longer than 50mm to get minimal distortion. With a longer lens (e.g. 100mm) you can always revert to stiching multiple images if the items are too large at the available working distance to capture then at once.

17-55 2.8 is the one to go for

As said by others the 24-105 is not wide enough on crop.

I would fancy a very sharp 50 1.4 with the same IQ as the recently announced Nikon 58mm. If it is sharper than the 24-70 ii and offers 2-stops larger aperture with fast AF, i wpuld be willing to pay the same pricetag as the Nikon 58mm.

Animal Kingdom / Re: Birds on 100-400L with 70D
« on: November 24, 2013, 09:51:00 AM »
I have always loved the 100-400L. It used to be my most used lens.

I posted some older pictures (with a 30D) here: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=12203.msg339490#msg339490

Since I upgraded to ff I bought many extra lenses, so I use it less often. Here a more recent one from a finch taken in Madeira in a rainy semi-cave with a waterfall (not much light there). I chose to bring the 100-400 over the 70-200 2.8 on that trip as I wanted to travel light yet remain versatile. No regrets.

Some older images from a safari to Kenya and Tanzania in 2007. Best holiday in my life!

All from my good old 30D (I upgraded for that vacation from the 10D) and 100-400L (which I still own).
