  • Hi I m toying with the idea of selling my 5d mk2 and 7d and buying a mk3 ,the fps are now nearly the same , and the autofocus on the mk3 has been greatly improved , can anyone see a downside ?
  • I was thinking about a samyang is there done that I could use on both my cameras ?
  • I have a canon 7d and a 5d mk2 and I want to get a fisheye lens ,I 'm not convinced how much I'll use it so I don't want to spend silly money on it ,has anyone got any ideas .
  • So overhead what your saying is that a with a f2.8IS I might get away with it but not with a f4 IS....with 2nd hand prices at the moment I could sell both lens for 1000-1100ish which is about the price of a 2nd hand f2.8IS and then get a extender 2nd hand for 260ish 2nd hand. Does this sound reasonable?
  • I don t want to lose quality the question was would I ? the answer would appear to be yes ,I was trying to get the same focal length from one lens that I already have with a extender to save space the answer was never gonna be spend 1800 on another lens.
  • Thats all very well but I m then turning it from a swap without any real outlay into a swap + 1000ish?? or am I missing something.
  • I have a canon L 70-200 f4 is and also a sigma 120-400 f5.6 which I use on a Canon 5d mk2 and a 7d ,Im thinking about selling the sigma and buying a mk2 2x canon extender to cover the loss of the sigma ,space is a issue and obviously I would gain some space but will I lose quality . I d be grateful for some advice.
  • I ve got a 24-105L I m looking for something faster for inside no flash pictures..museum,weddings etc ...if I could find a 28-70L second hand for 500 I would buy one but I can 't and thats about my top range.
  • I m thinking of buying a Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8 SP XR ZL Di LD for my 5d mk2 I ve got a couple of L series lens but nothing fast and I can t really afford a grand for canon on a lens that would rarely be used. Anyone got any other ideas.
  • I bought 2 300 watt heads and am attempting to buy a third ...the products are great very impressed with them however the company/website/delivery etc are the worst I ve ever come across and althought the lights are great its just not worth the hassle.
  • Just rang to place order some charmless bird said if the website shows no stock then no stock there is,asked if prices would go down 2.5% from monday and you'd have thought I'd mugged her granny! Oh well that answers my questions I suppose..Bowens for me!
  • Its a known fact that Gods own county is berkshire where the sun always shines,it never rains,theres, no credit crunch,and petrol is free... but that aside they seem to have trouble with being out of stock on the flash kits ,also whats the build quality like compared to Bowens.
  • Thanks for the offer but Im in Newbury.
  • Has anyone bought or used any lencarta ElitePro 600 Compact flash heads 199 as Im thinking of buying some as the spec seems good and they're cheaper than Bowens.
  • Decided to buy my mates 1d mk3 got it yesterday very very happy with it,looks brand new all the paper work from canon on auto focus fix 1600 pounds..well chuffed.
  • Whilst it is true that the 1d isn t usually thought of as either a portrait camera or for days out with the kids I was trying to say that it would have to do many DIFFERENT things.Anyway 1d went back to canon in april for fixes and clean etc
  • I understand what your saying and if I could define what I would shoot then it would be easier to decide its mainly portraits but also kids days out family stuff etc.It is the 1d not the 1ds and my decision is futher complicated by the fact that a friend has a 1d in mint condition 1 year old that he s willing to sell me for 1600 notes so he can buy a 1ds! from what I hear the new 5d will be at this price point maybe higher!So if price isn t the issue what do to ...my head hurts.
  • I shoot mainly portraits but didnt want to buy a 5d because of the old tech and wanted some of the new bell/whistles althought the 1d is over kill Iwould rather go over the top than regret it even thought 1d seem to be 2400 pounds .Until the maybe 5d mk2 there really wasn t much of a choice so it was easy but now.......
  • Hello any help would be great, I finally decided to buy a 1d but am advised by the shop I should wait as there is a annoucement from canon expected.My questions are these even if it happens will a new camera really compare to a d1 and anyway will it not take ages for stock to come throught?Ive spend the last 2 months buying and selling lens (had ef-s) and now Im lossing my nerve!
