Lenses / Re: lens recommendations for a vacation
« on: September 11, 2012, 03:44:59 AM »
Honestly, i would consider just taking the 24-105 and the 14...  you will prob not use the 70-200 much... i guess it depends on how much you want to carry around with you...  generally when i am doing the whole city site seeing stuff, i stick with my 17-55 (APS-C user), which covers 90% of my shots... flash is up to you, depends on how much you use it normally!

hope you have a nice trip!

With this I end my test, because I have a lot work to do and want to earn some money.

I hope you all enjoy my test and it helps you to make your decision.

Thanks, we appreciate the effort...

Lenses / Re: Wide Angle for Crop and FF?
« on: September 10, 2012, 10:07:46 PM »
I'd recommend buying a 10-22 for now, and once you get a FF, get a FF lens. 
Besides, by the time you go FF, Canon may have a new wide lens that you will want for your FF body.

+1 the resale value is pretty good on the 10-22...

I have the 10-22 and think it is great...  i tried a Tonika, but i found i just wanted the extra range the canon offered. I usually shoot landscapes with it, so 2.8 isn't needed!  save up, it has great resale value!

I think there will be a high end Crop... just my 2c

Sensors and bodies will come and go, but great glass could last you a career.

Couldn't agree more...  Isn't this what everyone says, all the time...  sure nikon is winning the war on bodies at the moment, but i doubt Canon will lag for long!  It is an arms race after all!

Thanks for the info...  i'm looking for a camera for me...  errrr i mean my wife...  a small camera for my wife! :)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: A potential Tamron 24-70 problem
« on: September 10, 2012, 11:51:39 AM »
Thanks for the information.  I will keep my eyes on it.  The good thing is Tamron provide 6 years warranty for repair and adjustment.

6 years....  and it is better than the 24-70 I, has IS and is cheaper....  depending on how often this happens, i don't think it has put me off too much...  not that i'm in the market to buy one any time soon!  :)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Samyang 24mm f/3.5 Tilt-Shift Announced
« on: September 10, 2012, 11:48:31 AM »
As soon as i saw this i was excited... If they pitch it for sub 1k $, and the quality of the lens is what we expect from a Samyang lens I think they will be on for a winner.

Lets hope it isn't DOA! though i would presume a tilt-shift has more room for errors then a normal lens...  here's hoping Samyang pulls it off well and at a good price!

Lenses / Re: A New EF 400 f/5.6L Before Photokina? [CR1]
« on: September 10, 2012, 09:42:11 AM »
i would like to see both a new 100-400 and 400 is....  debating which one will be better at this stage is mute.... to me it would only make sense that they released the 400 is first, with a big improvement in IQ, then released the 100-400 6 months later with a better than current but not as good as the prime IQ... or if the prime was in fact a couple of hundred bucks cheaper!

This is a lens i am constantly on the lookout for on ebay...  the fact i never see it on their tells me that all the owners really like it! :)

EOS Bodies / Re: Is a 46mp Canon EOS-1 on the Way? [CR1]
« on: September 10, 2012, 09:17:29 AM »
ANY news is better than none! :) Bring it on! Will be interesting how well it will do vs the d800...  really canon will have no excuse not to seriously out do it !

EOS Bodies / Re: Announcements Before Photokina
« on: September 10, 2012, 05:03:12 AM »
6/7/70D - any or all of them, I just want an announcement! :) I'm keeping hold of my beat up and temperamental 450D till it dies or a fantastic offer comes along.... So i don't care which is announced now, they won't be reachable for months anyway!

One thing is clear, canon needs to put a stop to (or at least slow) the tide of "Nikon bodies are better"! :)

Interesting...  very interesting....  lets see what the resolution will be like! :)
