Lenses / Re: which lens to keep
« on: April 23, 2013, 09:03:07 AM »
I m new to this, ok I have 24-105 f/4L IS and 24-70 f.2.8L, which one should I sell, I only could keep one lens and want to keep the best
Thanks for help

 Forgot to add I have 1D Mark lll and 5D Mark iii, I like to do Landscaping Buildings and Portraits
Since you "like to do Landscaping Buildings and Portraits", keep the f/2.8 and sell the 24-105 f/4 ... but if you sell both of those lenses you can buy the new 24-70 f/2.8 L II, which is a far superior lens than either of your lenses.

Agreed!

Stay with the current kit. Spend the money on travel.

In your case... 1DX will make more of a difference than v2 of same super telephoto

This lens sounds fishy. Same as Canon's 14-24, or Canon's high megapixel body. Vaporware.

Nothing any time soon, rent a 400 f/2.8

I stand corrected  ;)

Only at 15 mm

Consider the Sirui K range of ballheads, build quality similar to BH-55 at half the price.

Second body maybe, and then either 8-15 mm if you want a speciality lens, or a 24 mm TS-E II. Or just go Nikon and get a D800E and a 14-24 f/2.8 goddess of a lens!

Lenses / Re: Shooting a Rock Concert. Which Lens(es)?
« on: March 31, 2013, 03:24:43 PM »
The 70-200 mm will stay on most, ultrawide for other shots.

57
So, I throw this question out there.  Does Canon make a body that is just flat out great? 
Errrm...the 1DX. Have you used one?

-PW

Seconded. That body is flat out impressive.

Canon General / Re: Think I need a 12 step program
« on: March 30, 2013, 08:05:37 AM »
I think the huge majority, at least the frequent posters, have a bad case of Canonitis requiring a 12 step program... I am looking at us neuroanatomist, bdunbar and me actually...

The TS-E 24 mm version II. I caress that lens on every landscape and architecture shoot. Love it to bits.

The 24 mm TS-E II is noted to be sharper than the 17 mm and can accommodate filters, something which is still possible with the 17 mm albeit with special adapters rather than standard Lee/Cokin/Hitech setups (Lucroit anyone?).
