question, if you bought the 80D with the 18-135 lens, how do you like that combo? is that lens any type of sharp?


Cheers,
Joe

I have the 80D + 18-185. No complaints. The lens is plenty sharp (for me anyway).

i also have the 15-85 (very sharp) and just bought the 85 1.8 which is really nice. Still getting used to the fixed focal length.

Love Dustin's reviews. This one is for the most current nano USM version. Note that there are 3 versions of this lens(IS, IS STM, IS nano USM). The STM was just 'replaced' with this new nano version but I'd bet there's still combos being sold with the STM. If you're comfortable with variable aperture zooms(I hate them personally) I'd recommend making sure you're buying the new nano USM.

Bought a Canon 24-70 f4L IS USM today. I've had my eye on one for ages and Canon UK have just introduced a £165 cashback offer on it, so I took the plunge. Probably a MkII is on the way, but reviews of this lens, including one in the latest PhotoPlus Canon UK magazine, all say its image quality is superb. It's less than half the price of the 24-70 f2.8L and has IS, which the f2.8 doesn't. I'm going to try it as a walk-round lens. The macro is a bit weird, though. You have to push a fiddly button on the side of the lens, which may take some getting used to, and there are no proper instructions. Well, there is a leaflet headed "Instructions" but all that tells you is stuff like "Don't look at the sun through this lens." Hmmmm.... Here is my first micro effort with the lens - the best of a bad bunch, I'm afraid. Not up to Michael 456's high standards with micro by a long way, but it's a learning curve. It's a bee, by the way, but the darned things won't keep still!

The door shot is really crisp, and has some nice contrast to it.

The 24-70 f/4 is a nice little zoom, definitely a sleeper in the Canon lineup. Super versatile, affordable, and with solid IQ. The macro mode is pretty awesome to have for walk-around use too. A few quirks when dealing with the macro mode, which I never go around to figuring out; such as, why is there a "zoom range" in macro mode, and how is it supposed to be used? And, there is some focus shift at MFD, when shooting at 70mm, f/5.6, but switching over to macro mode overcomes this. Not to mention, it's actually sharper when doing this vs. "normal" 70mm.

I hear you on bees not keeping still. Sometimes they're so hyperactive that you just cannot get a shot. Before you get a chance to focus, they're gone again...


I tried BIF again today, this time using the center AF point zone only. That worked way better than before - the ratio of sharp shot vs soft ones went up quite a bit. Unfortunately I didn't get any really great shots as the birds didn't let me get close enough.

Note to self: never ever use line sensors for tracking again ;-)a
Thanks a lot for the help, everybody!

Bees have super vibration characteristics or something, as they seem to require more SS in order to get them tack sharp.

Your BIF shots are coming along nicely! Better than mine :lol: I don't think I've nailed one yet, as I stick to perched birds instead!

ISO 12,800... works for me!

I thought I'd hate variable aperture zooms too, but the 100-400 II put that preconceived notion to bed :) With the great ISO capabilities of the 80D, the loss of light isn't all that big of a deal as it once was. If shooting in good daylight, just use auto ISO, and you won't even notice the aperture changing.

I liked the way these clouds looked, with the sunlight filtering through them. Processed it a bit to make it look more dramatic.

Got the ef-s 10-18mm IS STM, love it so far. Sharp in the center, but less so at the edges.
