No, but welcome to a world where you wide angle lenses are wildly expensive or wildly bad. You will cry for your 10-22 again...

It will be sitting on my 450D until i can get a wildly expensive WAL to go with a wildly expensive camera! Well, that would be the plan! :)

Thanks all for your help! :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Dumb question?

Hey this is probably a dumb question, but here goes...

I want to go FF, but loosing the length i get from a cropped body worries me. But I had a thought...

I am using a 450D (12MP) and am thinking of getting me a 5D MKIII (22MP)...  If i were to crop the FF image to 12MP, what is the crop factor? 1.8 (22/12)???  If this is the case, with a 5D MKIII image cropped, i will actually be getting more magnification than i would with my 450D...  and a lot better quality (i would hope)...

Am I barking up the wrong tree here? Am I being dumb (i'm not renown for my maths skills)?

Hmmm...  :)

I am looking for a prime around here...  lets see how the 35 f/2 IS stacks up with it...  still, maybe a shorty40 is still the best option? who knows! :) Too many options drives me mad, but too few is worse! :D

Shouldn't we start seeing reviews now that the lens is officially available for purchase? I can't seem to find any


Someone go out and treat yourself...  then let me know if it is worth me doing the same! ;)

Sigma 35/1.4 seems definitely worth checking out:

Off-topic a bit, but is the new sigma meant to be weather sealed?

I'm starting to warm to the idea of a 6D, but I'm going to see how it handles in the wild before I pass final judgement!

24-105 would go great paired with a 10-22 (or equivelent).

Are you going to go FF soon? What kind of photography do you do? 24 might be a bit narrow for you at times.

Ask yourself if you need the extra width from the 15-85, if not, the 24-105.

Not very helpful i know, but it all depends on your needs.  What other lenses do you have?

Arrived in India and thought i would let you all know i ended up with the 70-200..  in fact my Wife surprised me with it as a late wedding gift...  :D

Bought it in India from a Canon store for 2014 Euro...  so cheaper than in France! :)

thanks for all the advice!

Just for my curiosity. How much does the Kenko tubes cost in Indian Rs. (I am Indian, but right now in USA for studies, have never bought any camera equipment in India, so just want to know). If you want you can send me a personal message.

11,500 INR http://www.gadgets.in/kenko-dg-extension-tube-for-c-af-s-lens.html#
About on a par with EU prices...

Thanks for the advice and comments guys...  think i'll the Kenko ones as I can actually buy them here in India! :)

reversing my nifty-fifty is great 2 lenses for 100€, both getting good results! no brainer for anyone (like me) who wanted to give macro a bash! :)
