Lenses / Re: Thinking about a 17-40 f4L USM. Thoughts?
« on: November 03, 2012, 09:43:32 AM »
I'm using this lens on my 5d3.  It's great.  I was worried about the sharpness from all the reviews, but its not as bad as I thought I would be.  It's focal range is really meant for a full frame sensor though.  I wouldn't pair it with a crop body as the main walk around lens.  It does distort alot on the wide end, but thats what wide angle lenses do.  It can be managed with software.

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: Philly Open Air light show
« on: October 16, 2012, 09:19:39 AM »
Nice shot.  Yeah, I live here and wasn't really thinking the light show would be anything too look at so I didn't bother to go until the last night.  Turns out it was pretty interesting!  I'm not sure if you knew this since your not from the area, but the whole idea is that the lights are hooked up to some voice recorder.  People leave messages at a voicemail and the play it back and the lights flash along with the voicemail.  People left goofy messages they sang or had their child laugh.

Canon General / Re: How do you sell your gear?

So, I'm at almost a week of having stuff up (CL), and I refreshed it once.  I got one reply, which I took as phishing (asked if I was sure about condition of item and there were SEVERAL clear pictures and if it was still available just after posting) so I let it go without a response.

Today I got two identical messages from a similarly named guy/email at gmail but it said that the e-mail only traced back to CL's server.

Since I asked for a phone number in the first response, and these don't appear to be written in clear English; is it better to give a pass on these?

Is there a way to respond (didn't see one) with a hidden address like Ebay does?

Thanks folks.

I get a lot of those too.  They say things like.  "Is your item still available?"  They don't mention what you are selling at all and aren't written in proper english.  They are tempting to respond too.  Especially since I'm not getting any legit offers.

Just ignore them and only respond if the person says they live in the area or mentions what you are selling in their initial email.

Lots of scammers and spammers on CL.

Lenses / Re: 24mm on a crop body?
« on: September 27, 2012, 12:05:20 AM »
I currently have a 7D.  Lenses i own are the Canon 17-55, 10-22, 70-200L f2.8 non IS and 100 mm L macro.  I DO want to go to a full frame body.  But the 5D3 is pretty expensive now.  So I figure I'd slowly upgrade as I save.  So I'm trying to figure out how to go about it.  I was thinking of selling the 17-55 and 10-22 and getting the new 24-70 and a 17-40.  I have a lot saved up and figure I can get those for what I sell the 17-55 and and 10-22.  Then probably get the 5d3 next year.  I just want to get a sense of what that 24mm will mean for my photography which includes landscapes, architecture, macro, and occasional portraits.

Lenses / 24mm on a crop body?
« on: September 26, 2012, 08:09:38 PM »
Is anyone using the 24-105L or 24-70 on a crop body?  If so do you find 24mm to be limiting on that wide end?

Thanks

I just drop a hint on that CanonRumors Forum site, sit back and wait for the offers to roll in!!

Oops.

As George Costanza said: "Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing, because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing is frowned upon... you know...."

Seriously, CL now that I'm in a metro area again. Up in the Sierra foothills, not much market for L glass!

Yeah,  I could see how I pulled a Costanza :). But if it works then that lens gets a good home and I do t have to deal with all the emails from spammers and scammers on CL.

Apparently the Canon 17-55 is one of that doesn't sell!

I sold mine the day after I listed it on CL (and that was only because we couldn't fine a mutually agreeable time on the day I posted the ad).

I've sold plenty of things on Craig's list that sold immediately in my area.  Mostly furniture.  I guess I need to be patient.
