I am aware that handling f4 and 2x might be beyond the 7D's capacity.
I now use the Canon 2x III on a Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II, and I am very pleased with the match.
[ It's very common to take a spill on a bike, and just one would wreck that lens.
its not that common to take a spill. I've actually seen a birder around my area with a case built onto his bike frame for carrying either a telescope or a big lens.
I subscribed to Photo Plus when I first started in photography and it was nice, since I needed something basic but technical. aGree with others, after exactly one year, noticed the material was basically recycled, so stopped then. The video tutorials were nice, though, as I started working with Elements. Now I pickup a few here and there from the bookstore when something catches my eye. Usually at the airport, when waiting for a flight.
+1 on the recommendation for a class. The best money I invested was a Saturday class at the local community college. Enough to get started well and a chance to ask questions from a professional.
Enjoy the new found hobby!
Of course. You paid for it you have the right to demand what you expect from it. It is just some people expect unreal things. Of course a lens is a +/- 10 has a serious problem. I tested 5 with focal and no one was more than +/- 1 so I stopped because got bored of testing them.
Really? Every one of my lenses is out by at least 4.
My 50mm f/1.4 is out by +7, my 70-200mm f/4 is out by +5 wide, and -1 tele. My 40STM is a +4.
My 70-200mm f/4 is tack sharp, and even before the +5 fix, it took fabulous photos. Some of which grace my office walls at 20x30". There's no reason I'd send it back for being out by 5.
Similarly, the 50 f/1.4 is a great lens, it just needed a little adjustment.
There's also the extra weight to factor in, there's a reason the 150-500mm is called the Bigma . [/quote]
So the question is, should I get:
- The 1.4x III extender for my 100-400L
- The Sigma 150-500 mm lens. I intend to keep the 100-400L.
What experience do you have on the Canon 100-400L + 1.4x
The sigma 150-500 mm Lens
Thanks in advance.
I've just upgraded from a 7D to a 5D III. Will I get any noticable difference if I upgrade my 60mb/s compact flash cards to 90mb/s cards?
