Greetings from Aberdeen.

Moved up from my 450D to the 5D Mark III.

I took the plunge right in the deep end and I'm struggling. Anyone local looking for a shadow?

I'm in rural North Monmouthshire. And not running the central heating (or eating much) in a desperate effort to save up enough for a 5D Mark 3!

Hello all, I'm from South Staffordshire.

Current cameras are in my sig, mostly used for my travel photography and usually when on the high seas some where on a cruise ship, always a new port to stop at and find something to photograph  ;D

Due to travel flight weight allowances on the handle luggage over the last ten years getting slowly reduced it's altering my camera set-ups.

I've probably just bought my last Canon lens the 16-35 f2.8 (previously had the 17-40 f4) I've invested in the Fuji range, the X-E1 and lens which I like for portability and photos of course. Looking to add the X-E2 and the 23m 1.4. My Nikon D600 was my jump into the dark side. For a one camera setup for travel, the Nikon D600 with the 28-300 and the 16-35 Nikon lens shooting raw has been a great one camera setup.

I do like the new full frame Sony 7(R) range but as an example below, it's not cut and dry.

Both cameras have the 70-200 f4 equivalents, the sony 7(R) still ends up being bigger than you think.  It's all good fun  ;D

Any one in the midlands would like a meet up, I live near the National Memorial Arboretum, makes an ideal place to visit for photography.

Both are fine lenses. When I find I'm in a quandary with two lenses in different ranges...it's becuase I actually need both. So my advise is to get the 16-35IIL and then begin the next save / phase for the 24-70IIL.

Hi folks, originally from Glasgow area (hence the daft user name  8) ) but living in Dubai last 8 years.
Planning on buying a 70D and a 24-105L shortly, also fancy the Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 and a 300mm f4L with a 1.4X and a 2X in the future, I think that little lot should serve me well.
I mostly shoot motorsports as we have two very nice tracks here in the UAE (Yas Marina and the Dubai Autodrome) and there’s loads of birdlife to keep me occupied too, a bit lacking in the landscape department right enough!!!
Love CR as everyone’s very helpful, which of course means I too log on with alarming regularity!!!

Cheers

Stewart
