Hello Everyone!! these last couple of months have been pretty exciting. Just a couple of months ago I was posting in the 40d section, then last month I sold the 40d and picked up a 60d, now I sold that and finally picked up my mark 2. It is such an amazing camera and such a huge difference from the crop frame.

One of the first pics I took with the mark 2. Opinions, comments, etc. are welcome!!

I'm looking at either the new 24-70 f/4 or the 24-105 for my walk-around, and I think the length of the 105 is what I'll use.

Who cares if Hitler says it's for panzies...

hehe

Re: the weight of the brick: YEAH! I have that, too! I used one for a 14-hour shoot the other day and my arm was sore and I had a kink in my neck the next day (I was shooting video the whole time - behind the scenes stuff). I think people who say they don't mind the weight only use it for 5 mins a day.

Yeah deff agree or must have bionic arms haha

I don't understand the need for a 24-70 F4 when you can get the 24-105. The tele end is very usefull.

Simplistic wrote in post #15239652 (external link)
The main difference people talk about is having 2.8 for DOF.

But, per the DOF charts I can find, 105 at f/4 is thinner than 70 at 2.8... Correct me if I'm wrong...

The new lens is f/4, NOT f/2.8. That is why some are wondering what would be the reason for replacing the 24-105 with this lens.

My thought process is the 4 stops IS, and macro capabilities that make it desirable.

OK - I have to ask - what does "4 stops IS" mean? I know what stops are and I know what IS is, but does IS not work at every stop? Sorry for a very 'dumb question'... :o

Are you sure you know what stops means? Its not just apertures but also shutter speeds. 1/250 is a stop less than 1/500 and 1/125 is yet another stop. So if the normal handheld shutter speed on a full frame camera is 1/focal length a 200 mm lens without IS would need 1/200. 4 stops of IS would be 1/12.5..

(The light comes on) - yes I know what a stop is, but when I hear "4 stops" I thought it meant only capable of 4 stops, rather than 4 stops 'better'.... :D

Thank you.

I apologize for summarizations. Sometimes I abbreviate because it is assumed the parts missing are understood. However, gonzogolf is correct in his explanation about image stabilization and how it works.

Oh no need to apologize. I am sort of new to DSLR world, got a Rebel a few years ago and then my 5D Mii early this year. I have read and studied and tried to learn, hang out here for information; I knew what "stop down" meant and other similar terms; but from early on when I would hear "4 stop" lens or something similar, I would wonder exactly what that meant. So I am very glad to have it explained to me.

:lol:SO thanks to all that help us to understand.
