^^ 100 shots in three week? Are you sure you like your 7D. 100 shots is done in 2 days or less for me :p

You should switch to the 60D ;)

Gorgeous Photo and beautiful subject :)! Did you do any photo processing or was this straight from the camera with just a few tweaks?

Thanks!

Yes, I post process all of my pictures. Pretty much run down the list in lightroom and I tweak a lot of them.

helped out a friend shooting a wedding but since i didn't have an id issued by the church, i wasn't allowed to go close to the ceremony so i stayed by the church entrance and took snaps there. was very happy shooting away with the 60D @ ISO6400 since the church staff didn't allow me to use my speedlite as well :)

I've had my 7D now for almost 3 weeks and I can't stay out of this 60D thread. Loved the 60D while I had it and am starting to think of selling my 7D and getting back into a 60D. Wow, I said it - felt like what it must feel like to introduce yourself at an AA meeting.

Im fairly new to photography and have limited time to shoot and learn as much as I'd like (have taken 100 shots in 3 weeks with my new 7D). I already have three lenses I enjoy shooting with (Tokina 11-16, Canon 15-85 and now a 50mm1.4) and with the recent price drop on the 60D (and knowing that I can't shoot as much as I'd like) i'm thinking I can pocket that difference in price and still have a solid camera. hmm...

It is a solid camera and if you don't need the fast burst shooting then 60D is the choice. I was debating to get a 7D but after careful review of my shooting style I will actually loose some of the new functionality the 60D has. Articulating screen - I tend to use it quite a bit especially for video. The 5 FPS on the 60D is plenty since I don't shoot sport that much.


5DMKII or 5D MK III
Enough gear for now... need to get out and shoot more.

Same here. My 24-105L is on my camera 90% of the time also. It's a wonderfull lens.

Seriously? You like it better than the 17-55 on a crop? People are always basing the 24-105 on a crop and worshipping the 17-55. I was hoping someone had a better opinion based on experience............​...

That was part of my point. I'm never going to be someone that shoots a ton

It's definitely a solid camera. I do dog sport stuff but even then I'm training my dogs more than I am taking pictures. For the limited shots I'll take in that venue I'm guessing the 60D will suffice? I too used the articulating screen quite a bit.

I don't entirely understand what you are saying here.

Are you comparing the two? Because they have very different ranges, and consequently different uses. A better comparison might be the 17-55 to the 17-40L.
If you're suggesting I drop my 24-105L, then come up with a lens with the same range to replace it.

I would never suggest that my 24-105 has the best resolution. But I have certainly found it to be the best lens to have in the widest variety of situations. The most versatile. I seldom have need to dig out my 17-40L. I shoot almost all of my pics on the 24-105L or the 70-200 f/4L.

Von, a couple of questions about this: "Picture Style, select User Def 1, Set style to Neutral, Sharpness to max and others to 0." Are you shooting RAW and do you use this setting all the time, or just for checking front and back focus?
Thanks!
Larry

Hi Larry!
RAW images are not affected by camera's settings, such as sharpness, contrast etc. I have now used this User Def profile for 2-3 days all the time for 200 pics and it works well, especially when ISO is low - 100-400. Usually all digital photographers sharpen their photos in Photoshop. This just another way to do the task, in an easy way.

Have great pics :)

I do like the 17-55 2.8, But you have got to remember, I just got it. I guess the 24-105 fits my shooting style. I am going to work a lot with the new (17-55 2.8) lens and try to open up my photo taking style. I'll be able to give a more proper report on the new lens once I use it for a while. Right now there's nothing to shoot except snow, and I am getting sick and tierd of it. praying for spring, and the colors it brings.

For me, I'm really liking the 24-105mm on crop for walk around and the sigma 10-20mm for my ultra wide landscapes. Throw in the Sigma 30mm for low light indoors and video and I have a nice travel package.

Ill 2nd the opinion of "i wasnt happy with my 17-55". Shots sooc were decently sharp but the colors and contrast and bokeh just was no where near as nice as my 24-70L's. Also, imo 55mm is just way to wide for any portrait work. I dont like having to be in somones face for a tight headshot. Also the IS is whats mainly responsible for the somewhat sharper shots in comparison to the non IS L's. I do not have the problem of shakey hands so I stick with the best. Also 17mm isn't wide enough for me as well. I use a 10-22, 24-70 and a 70-200 to cover my focal lengths.

You are right, it is indeed a nice travel package. I have thought of that setup (switch the 30mm for the 50mm) but decided to get the 5D instead. I love portrait shooting and I figured that a 5Dc would fit my need more than the 24-105.

I still have my eye on it tho, but I'd have to sell a prime to get it and I'm not sure I'm ready for that ;)
