That is an awesome idea!! I had a problem with getting two young boys to look at the camera yesterday and something like this would of been perfect!

I was wondering how you knew your 24-70 needed calibrated?? Also how long were you without it when you sent it off to get fixed??

Just over time I could see the quality diminishing. I'm a pixel peeper, big time & the quality wasn't there.

I tested it on f/12 hooked up to my studio lights, on a tripod - and still the focus was out. Then I knew i wasn't imagining it.

I was quoted 15 days, but had a tanty (I'm good like that) and got it back in 7 days with a cost of $401.80.

It's so great now it makes me do a happy dance. lol

Seona, this is a great thread and I appreciate your tips.

I have similar camera bodies and lenses. So my question is, which lens do you use on the 30D ( I have the 40D) and which one do you prefer on the 5D mk II.

I'd like to experiment a little and perhaps go into the shoot with the two bodies loaded and ready to go. Last photoshoot I had, the baby woke up while I was trying to change lenses and testing out the distance and angles.


Newborn, Baby, Family Photographer:
My Gear: 40D | 5D Mark II | 24mm-70mm f/2.8L | 50mm 1.2 L | 28mm-135mm IS f/3.5-5.6 USM | Saving up to get the 70-200mm IS f/2.8 lens (Ouch)

which lens do you use on the 30D

The 24-70, the 85 is way too close for me on the cropped body for my day to day shootng.

If you have the space to keep the 85 on while photographing babies then I'd choose it over the 24-70, I'm buying the 50 1.2 this weekend, it will be my baby photography workhorse.
