Lenses / Re: Thoughts on 70-200 f/4 vs 70-300 vs 100-400?

I think that, all things considered, the 70-300 might be the winner and then maybe, in the name of GAS, a 400mm prime for the next Alaskan trip (which won't be for awhile).
Thanks for all the insight and more is very welcome.

Thanks very much.  Might wait just to see, but the do-it-all size of the 70-300 plus the 67mm threads (matching my 10-18 and 35 2.0 IS) make it the likely winner.  Might order today so that it and the superzoom will cross in the mail and timing its arrival while my wife is at work.

Lenses / Thoughts on 70-200 f/4 vs 70-300 vs 100-400?

Just tried a new superzoom on a vacation last week to a lot of "blah".  Rented a 100-400 last Summer which was AWESOME.
I have a 70D with indoor sports telephoto needs met with a 100 2.0 and 200 2.8II.
So I'm looking for that one special telephoto zoom for outdoor sports/activities, travel, etc. and am slightly leaning towards the 70-300L.  400mm would be useful at times, but 70-100 might be attractive and the rest up to 300 probably good-to-go 95+% of the time.
70-200 is likely enough most of the time so I'm willing to make a "focal-length" sacrifice for the most image quality possible.
Is there one of the above that really shines above the rest in image quality?  Of course, there's the upcoming 100-400 which is somewhat of an unknown and the 70-200 4.0 non-IS maybe the bargain of the bunch. 
Thanks for any direction even though this has been discussed a lot.  The latest thoughts can't hurt, though, I guess.
Much appreciated.

Tamrac MX5383 M.A.S. Flash Accessory Pocket

That one doesn't have a strap included but a velcro-release belt strap in the back. Fits the 430EX II with Sto-fen perfectly with no wasted space, batteries/business cards/other stuff in front.
Thanks. That one looks pretty good too. Tough call.

Lowepro Quick Flex Pouch 55 AW.
That's absolutely perfect. Thank you. Ordering tomorrow after returning from the big Aruba trip. Little bit of a "photo" fail, but might have got a few good ones by accident.

Can anyone recommend a case with a shoulder strap and/or belt loop that a 430EXll Flash barely fits into?  It's for travel/street when using my EOS M.

Would you mind a few details of settings, etc.? 
NICE one.

EOS-M / Re: Next official EF-M Lens
« on: July 12, 2014, 03:24:49 PM »

What I want, would be a compact 55mm f/2. IS would seal the deal.

Between that and the 22mm f/2 you basically have the EOS M equivalent of 35/85 which is a small light versatile kit with fast glass. And still pocketable!

Anything wider, or more tele, and the length of the lens has to increase significantly, which makes it much less pocketable.

+1 for a small 55 f/2 with or without IS. I find the M great at the wide end but for real telephoto work I much prefer the OVF of a proper DSLR. 55mm on M is about as long as I would like to go.

Photography Technique / Sunset/Ocean Techniques?
« on: July 11, 2014, 06:01:00 PM »
     Any words-of-wisdom for sunset/sunrise shots over an ocean?  I've got the usual stuff down, but would a graduated ND filter be something to consider?  Any other thoughts are very welcome.
     The gear will likely be a 70D/35 2.0 IS and then maybe a 10-18 for sunrises.  In this case the sunsets will be at the beach and the sunrises over rocks with water breaking all around.
     Thanks for any and all responses.

Have some found an EOS M/22mm lens a good solution for a big trip (one not including wildlife)?  Just got my M/22 and Aruba is just a few weeks away.

Software & Accessories / Small Bag Recommendation?
« on: July 02, 2014, 02:24:11 PM »
Is there a favorite small bag for one DSLR w/small lens + an additional small lens?  In this case it's the 70D, 35 2.0 IS and 10-18.  Looking for something as concise as possible, but still a bit snazzy.  Nothing over-the-top, but with at least a little bit of style.

Thanks and would my 70D software work for importing pictures onto my computer from the M (will my current EOS Utility recognize the M) without downloading the software that comes with it?

Thanks.  Ordered it today with the least expensive B+W CPL and a Lowepro Dashpoint 20.  After the most research in the history of compulsive purchases I think I did the right thing.

EOS-M / M+22mm for Travel/Street?
« on: June 27, 2014, 10:24:56 AM »
Could the EOS M with 22mm lens be "it" for a do-it-most travel/street solution when wishing to travel light?  Just back in stock at my friendly retailer.
I like prime lens, by the way, the EOS software already on my computer and ability to use my Canon flash if necessary.  Not sure how I feel about no viewfinder, but probably can't have it all.
