Do you still have all those primes, it is impressive. impressive if you actually used them and it is impressive that you actually acquired that many primes, what pulled you away from zooms. Did they have any fast zooms f4 or f 2.8 zooms 34 years ago.

Yes, I used all of them.

No, they are all long gone. But I sold most of them for pretty-much what I paid for them. In 1976 there were very few zooms, all slow and heavy. And there were no super-wide-angle zooms at all.

None of them would fit either the EF-mount cameras I switched to in the early eighties.


Canon 80D, 60D, Canon 10-22EFs, 15-85EFS IS, Sigma 18-30, Sigma 30mm f/1.4DC, Canon 60mm EFs Macro, Rokinon 8mm fisheye, 550EX flash, Olympus TG2 underwater P&S
Postprocessing: DxOLabs, DxO Viewpoint 3, Paint Shop Pro X9
Speak softly and carry a big zoom.

I see that you want the sigma 70-200 2.8 OS (stabilization) in your signature. Why? I heard its going to be priced at about 1600 bucks and for 1700-1800 you can get the canon IS version or for 1200-1300 you can get the canon non IS. I had used a friends sigma 70-200 2.8 for about 3 months before i got a 70-200 2.8 and IMHO the canon 70-200 2.8 (non is) blows away the sigma 70-200 2.8 (non os). but that can all change if the new sigma has changed optics, but sigma is know for its notoriously bad quality control. Just my input.

I didnt mean the OS the lower one, wahaha, I wasnt paying attention. And as for the canon 70-200 IS if I had the money for that I would definitely use that one :D

Oh okay, i would definitely get the sigma 70-200 2.8 over a canon f4L (non is), but you should really save up for the canon as it noticeably more accurate and auto focusing.
Though im not sure if my comparison is accurate cause when I used the sigma, I used it on my friends Nikon d300 (the 7d equivalent for nikon) for three months (i did use this lens extensively), and of course i use my canon 70-200 2.8 (non is) on my 7d, so autofocus accuracy and speed may be different between nikon and canon. Still though youll be kicking yourself in the leg if you buy the sigma over the canon when you could have saved a little longer.

Um...ALL of it? It's not like I'm carrying to shoot the Olympics or the World Cup, but you never know...

Last time I went on vacation I took everything I had (minus my primes and TC because I didn't own them yet) in a Vertex 300 AW and carried along a Tamrac Pro 8 shoulder bag for when I didn't need the Bigmos. It worked out.

I have been carrying 2 bodies + 5 lenses, but I am now trying to travel light and bring what I need. We are now in Indonesia visiting some relatives. Not expecting any special shot opportunity, so I took 5D2, 35L, 135L, 1.4x and 580EXii.

If I couldn't bring it as a carry-on, I wouldn't bring it at all. The idea of putting expensive glass in check-in luggage... does not sit well with me. If it's not stolen, it ends up being broken.

So far, here in NYC, I've been using the 16-35 90% of the time, Zeiss 35 and 24-105 the rest.
