Question for anyone wanting to reply.
I was wondering if I could get away with buying a step down ring for my 24-105 in order to use my
58mm CP filter. Or will that result in vignetting? Would be awesome because I really don't want to
shell out the cost for another expensive CP filter.
I also was wondering what the popular choice amongst everyone is as to what filter to buy to keep
on my 24-105 for protection purposes. Thanks in advance to anyone that cares to give their thoughts.

do a search here, some report vignetting with step down rings but it depends on the millimeters. I use a relatively cheap Sunpak CPL filter but I question whether it affects AF and/or image quality so I use it infrequently

2. i love my 70-200 f4

I did a quick edit of the shot with the eagle out of curiosity. Lowered exposure, sharpened, and recropped it. It works very well and it is a great shot.

A stepdown ring should be fine. You shouldn't have any vignetting issues.

On protective filters, I use a Hoya super multi-coated glass skylight on each of my normal lenses. (I don't use one on my Lensbaby.) The last I bought was from Adorama in April for my 85mm prime. It was $36.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for replying. I can handle 36 bucks. I just didn't know if I had to buy a really expensive one or if the cheaper ones were ok to use. I don't want to cut any of the 24-105
lens quality.

Thats why I was asking because I hate the thught that my Canon 140 dollar CP is just
sitting in my bag doing nothing. I bought it early on not thinking I would ever own a piece of glass with the infamous letter L
Going to go search on step rings on here now. I much appreciate your reply thanks.

I didn't realize that. Sorry, and thanks!

I don't think it cuts quality. My best lens is my Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM, and I don't seem to have any issues with the skylight on that.

Here's one of my "cat" :D, my pride and joy, shot with my other passion, the 450D.

Yup and very nicely done getting so close to such a beautiful animal.

I wish the cropping and exposure was a little better though. So much potential in that stare.

i was about 5 feet away and it was at the la wild life park so thats why i got so close .i believe i got a couple more full shots but i gotta look

You haven't set "image editing OK" in your profile so that's why I didn't post it at first.

Here it is:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: NOT FOUND | MIME changed to 'image/png'


You could do even more working on the RAW file. Especially to get more detail out of the eagle while toning down the background.

Went to the zoo yesterday and got my 450D for over a year now but it blew me away. I am always a bit careful with high ISO shots and usually I dont go over the 400 but here ISO 800 was required to keep the shutter speed fast and it worked like a charm :D.

Those pics look great at full res. I've been wanting to take my XSI to the Palm Beach Zoo for a while now, but it's sooo hot here.

Great shots! I especially like #1. High ISO works well when there is enough light.

A few from a maternity shoot w/ my cousin last night... my first attempt at this. It was harder than I thought it was going to be!! I think they did it for my sake more than theirs... but they were happy with the pictures!

Got the Canon 55-250 lens for my bday yesterday and had a nice bonfire!


Nothing like a torch attached to a propane tank to start one up!
