I went ahead and pulled the trigger on a 70-200 2.8. I had been looking at the v3 but to save $500 it was worth just getting the v2. To the guy that says he purchased the v3 for $1500 let us know where that deal is.

You'll be good as long as you're not doing any astrophotography with it. Possible but not optimal I guess.
I won't be doing any astrophotography, so I won't really need a super fast lens.
Of course, I much prefer faster lenses, but right now, price is a bigger factor.

I'd be using the lens mostly for people shots in tight spaces. And some landscape.

Yeah I may cancel my 10-18 order, found a local used Tokina 11-20 for under 300. I want the option of both, as much as I would like IS on canon.

Definitely right about the value of canon glass if you're going to spend that much $. For me it was that I got sick of knowing I would never be able to shell out enough cash for the really nice lenses. If I were a pro, I might not be switching from canon for the reasons you give.
For $700, you can snag a 7d mark II or 70-200 2.8 (700 each). The original IS is a few hundred more. The 1DX is down to 1900ish used.

I still use my 1dx after 1.5 million clicks or so (and 3-4 shutter swaps). It still works great. Outside of non-LED indoor events, it's 95% of the camera of the 1dx2.


I would not buy a rebel for a friend, I'd have them go mirrorless, but once you bump up a notch or two, the mirrorless has not caught up in those tiers. It's getting closer (particularly for non sports).

Sorry for going off topic but I have a basic 18-55 canon lens. Now I wish to upgrade for better photography basically some portraits of children etc. Could anyone suggest what next lens should I upgrade to. Also is there any generic cheaper good quality lens available if Canon are expensive. Thanks

Seems a little random. Do I need a 52mm lens cap when it already comes with one?
You will if you lose one...But his point was adding the $8 gives you free shipping and ends up being $4-$5 cheaper than buying the lens by itself. Or you can sell that lens cap and save a few more dollars.

Sigma mc-11 works very well, better than metabone in my experience.

if you have to get one lens, try to get 24 - 70 f2.8 II, the sharpest lens Canon ever produced.
While an excellent lens and the standard zoom I am using on my Canons, the 24-70 II is nowhere near the sharpest lens Canon ever produced =). It is perhaps the best standard EF zoom lens Canon produced, or "was" before the RF 28-70 f/2 L was out.

If sharpness is all you are after, a 50mm f/1.8 STM stopped down to f/2.8 will be sharper than the 24-70 II and a wide-open EF 40mm f/2.8 will be really close for the same frame. Forget about Canon L and Sigma Art primes in that same range - which are also practically the same size and weight as the already huge f/2.8 zoom), and typically longer primes are even sharper.

If you're looking for a total replacement for the 18-55 kit lens I'd suggest the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8. At around $300 it's a nice third-party alternative to the $800 Canon 17-55 f/2.8. Tamron lenses come with a six-year warranty and their customer service has been great...

If you're interested in "real" portraits (off-camera flash, umbrellas, etc.) you'll probably want something between 55 and 70mm. You could experiment with your kit lens or a telephoto zoom if you have one. I'd suggest looking at the photos you've taken and figuring out what focal lengths you most frequently use. That may help you decide what to upgrade to.

Looking to buy a nice starter camera and am on the fence on mirror less or dslr. You are saying mirrorless is the way to go? If so what should I look at around the price of a T6i and T7i?

Decent deal, for a decent, entry-level, lens.

Is the 80D with 18-55 lens a good deal with the code? Any suggestions? TIA

Can anyone tell me what size lens cap I need to get for my Cannon Power Shot SX530 HS?

Neither 67mm or 58mm fit.

I see that it should take a center pinch 58mm cap - that's one that fits inside the lens +/or filter.See: https://www.amazon.com/PowerShot-...B00SWGK8QK
