    Canon EF 85mm f1.4L IS vs Canon EF f1.8

    I've seen lots of comparisons from Sigma, Tamron and the Canon f1.2L but nothing noting how the new Canon 1.4 L compares to the 1.8. Obviously the IS and slight f stop difference but what about CA, vingetting and sharpness? Anyone have both lenses?

    What is a focusing screen??

    I sent in my camera to Canon service center as my 24-70 F2.8 II seemed to have erratic autofocus being soft in some instances. My other L's were perfectly fine. The 24-70 seemed to be ok then not with no particular lighting or situation I could Id. I tried micro adjustments and still didnt...

    I wanted to ask the group their thoughts on sharpness with Canon 5DIII. I notice it most strongly with my 24-70mm 2.8 II in low light and at 70 mm. Some with other lenses with low light or contrast. I've tried live view focus that helps some. ISOs aren't maxed out generally above 1000-5600...

    Canon 7D II

    I have a 5D Mark III and wanted to get input on the 7D Mark II as a second body. Besides the focal length and fps, are there any other reasons to consider this as a second body? Are there situations you use one more so than the other? Thank you!

    Two cameras??

    I currently have a 5D Mark III. I shoot mostly kids activities/sports and landscapes. For those of you who shoot with two bodies, do you see significant advantages to having a crop sensor camera like the 7D Mark II as a second camera? I miss the focal length difference but are there any...

    5D Mark III sharpness or focus lock

    I notice when I am shooting with my 5D Mark III, that it lacks sharpness at times. I am not sure if it is where it is locking (location of the object front vs back object, but it seems to persist even when I open the f stop to increase the depth of field). When I focus manually I can get a...
