QUOTED IMAGE

No, I will not pose for that crop camera and cheap 50mm lens.

If you want to take my pic, get out the 5DII and some L glass!

:lol: Cats are such divas. Dogs would be fine with a point and shoot.

Yes, my observations and opinions are similar to yours on the two issues you described . . . except for the line about sherpas and mules - I don't understand people complaining about size and weight, unless it's a huge white supertelephoto one is carrying, such as the 400 f2.8, 500 f4. 600 f4, or 80 f5.6. I find that all of the other lenses and bodies are actually rather easy to carry around, and I am not big, strong, or fit.

Come to think of it, the 500 f4 and 800 f5.6 are actually rather easy to lug around, compared to the other two I mentioned.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

+1,

Those with health issues aside, I'm making an offer right now to personally come and train anyone that complains about the weight of any lens smaller than the 400 2.8.

If we train for 1-2 months or less, I can guarantee that the weight will no longer be a problem.

However, you will hate me and say terrible things about my mother before we're done. :lol:

Haha, I agree with both observations actually, especially the 2nd one.

I was at the F1 race in Austin in November. I had my 70-300L and 400 5.6L with my 7D. A guy a few rows down had a 7D with a rented 400mm f/2.8..and talked about how "no other lens is going to give the IQ this one will". Based on the shots we were both trying to get (panning shots), there was absolutely no advantage to f/2.8 over f/5.6 at 400mm, he said himself the lens was stopped down to f/7.1 or more on a lot of them....yet he HAD TO HAVE the big lens...and no, he didn't even have TC's with him.

I think some buy gear before they really have put thought into what they are going to use it for...

I once had a 300/2.8 (too heavy) and I gave it up for the Canon EF 400/5.6. Wonderful, light, precise, sharp, etc.

The way it goes, it will be the number of ART lenses you have.

What drives me nuts is somebody will post about a malfunctioning camera or lens, a thousand (non camera repair technicians) will throw up a wild guess, a week later the camera is finally sent off to Canon or another repair facility. Why waste the time and the wait for responses on a forum, when it could have been on its way to being repaired days before the response wait time?

Get two dogs; they'll eat each others poop, and you'll never have to pick it up again. ;)

everyone seems to need a full frame camera and L glass to shoot crummy pictures of their cats.

Hey! Full frame cameras and L glass take great cat photos! :p

Uh, no. They eat each other's poop and then vomit it up on your carpet at 2:30 a.m. But be thankful because it will make the chore of picking up the yard look pleasant in comparison.
