Lenses / Re: EF 24-35mm f/2.8L pure wide angle zoom

The 24-35 exists, but it is called a prime and requires just a little bit of foot zooming (28mm).


24-35 is too close for a zoom imho.

Still no one answered my question lol. Is it safe to clean the lens and LCD screen with alcohol wipe ?

Yes it is, though i would avoid stronger solvents without checking. Ethanol is fine....

:P All the above posts apply and explain...  :) No problem with the camera, but maybe the user! Luckily for you, it is cheaper to fix than there being a problem with the camera! :)

70-200...  awesome lens! :) Will give you versatility...  don't worry about the weight considering you will be on a road-trip.  Don't forget to get adequate travel insurance for your gear though! :)

Have a great trip, will look forward to see your shots on your return (if you post them here)! :)

Could not agree more! Come on EF(-S) 22mm!

Nice lens...  very jealous! :)
Nice that Adorama sorted out the problem...  there is nothing worse than buying something for it to be reduced the next day!

EOS Bodies / Re: Which Canon Picture Style(s) do you use (for photos)?
« on: August 22, 2013, 12:18:20 AM »
I use the RAW picture format.  I use the preview image on the screen to check exposure, but that's about it.

No, you don't.  There's no 'RAW format' - a RAW 'image' can't be viewed.  What you're looking at on the camera's LCD is a JPG image, converted in-camera with whatever settings you have (picture style, ALO, high ISO NR, etc.).  Those settings don't affect the RAW data directly (with the exception of long exposure NR and sort of but not really HTP), but they do affect the JPG preview image stored inside every RAW file, and the histogram is based on that JPG.  So, to the extent that you make exposure decisions based on that review image or histogram, your selected picture style, etc., can affect your RAW images.

Again, another useful comment by Neuro...  here was me thinking because i shot raw, picture styles in camera were unimportant. so...  neuro, which in-camera style settings do you use?
