    Computer Advice

    LensCoat and Canon 400mm f5.6

    I have a LensCoat on my EF 300mm f/4L IS, which also has the retractable lens hood. The LensCoat extends past the end of the hood, but the hood still retracts without an issue.

    Time to replace "Mirrorless"?! (camera description term / wording)

    questions in regards to stabilizers for traveling

    I also have the 5D mark IV and needed to purchase a travel-sized tripod last year. I have a nice carbon fiber tripod (1.9 lbs), but at 20" its folded length was too long to pack. The biggest lenses I was took were the EF 16-35 f/4L IS and EF 200mm f/2.8L II. I finally selected this Oben model...
