    How does a dead fly in a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II affect image quality?

    I upgraded my old 70-200 f/4L a while ago to the new II version. I had hoped to sell the old one in part exchange, but when the shop checked out the lens they noticed a piece of broken glass stuck somewhere between the rear lens elements. They showed it to me so I could see for myself. No...

    White balance, how to determine?

    The best way by far, is to use live view (if you have it). Set the camera to live view and point the camera at your subject. With one eye on the lcd and one on the subject, adjust the white balance until what you see on the lcd looks the same as the subject. Works every time!
