Did you find yourself shooting more zoomed out on the 24mm wide end, or zoomed in at 70mm?

What, not updating! Miss out on those Norwegian menus? ;-)a

The devil's in the hidden detail perhaps?
Issue 1 - The lens data registartion function is the only bit of Canon software that writes to the camera setup using the API vs all other Canon software that is just reading back images or setting exposure. Those of us who use FoCAL and have an 80D will no doubt tell you that there is an intermittent problem with the software and the camera losing communication during the writing of AFMA values that I've not experience with my other bodies that support AFMA. Both of these (Canon lens & FoCAL) use the Canon API. The 80D is not the only camera to have got a firmware update to fix this same issue in the last couple of weeks either, the 5D4 has this too. Not having a 5D4 I cannot verify the FoCAL issue, but I suspect that there is a lot more to the fix in issue 1 than meets the eye. Canon are obviously not going to reference 3rd-party software in the fix list though.
I updated mine on the 80D without issue 2 days ago but haven't had chance to check the issues with FoCAL yet, but I'd bet a pint on it solving the problem. Once I get some time to re-check some lens calibrations using FoCAL I'll report back.

So you want something wider than your 50 f/1.8 then? What's your price range?

Knowing that you seemed to gravitate towards the wide end of the 24-70, and you're wanting to do portraits, look at lenses in the 16-50mm range. If f/2.8 works for you, and want to stick with Canon, I'd go with the Canon 17-55 f/2.8; Canon primes to look at: 24 f/1.4, 35mm f/2.0 IS. Again, your price range will dictate a little what you'll be looking at for options.

Another lens to look at is the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8. That would not be stepping on the toes of your 50mm, and you get the fast f/1.8 in a ZOOM instead of buying multiple primes.

EDIT: good video comparison for lenses that may fit what you're looking for: https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=T3UfbsdfUu8 (external link)

One anoying thing with my 80D is when changing ISO the change is not instant. There is a small lag before ISO number is updated in the viewfinder. I am using the upper wheel for ISO settings. There are times when I turn the wheel and get wrong ISO because of the lag. Never experienced this on any other Canon body before?

Do you have the same behaviour in your 80D?

Fell off my bike the other day and broke a bone in my knee, so I'm immobile for a month or so. What can you photograph when you can't get out of the house? Here's a couple of BW efforts from my lounge. Taken with my 50mm f/1.8 lens, which I bought last year and have hardly ever used. It's an inexpensive lens and not a bad one for the money. Both taken with the lens wide open. The second pic is of a mural we have had for years. Thought I'd explain that as it looks rather weird! I'll now be looking for more subjects. Any ideas?

Sorry to hear that. If you don't have a dedicated macro lens get some extension tubes and add to your 50mm. Macro stuff around the house is fun. Also a good time to test/learn lighting, do (self) portraits and more. Food photography is another genre. ;)

Thanks. I do have an old 60mm f2.8 macro. It stopped working on autofocus ages ago - it just started continually hunting forward and back - but I shall have to see if I can use it on manual focus, which is best for macro work anyway. I asked about a repair but the cost seemed prohibitive. Still, you've given me some ideas. Cheers

Pleased to say that my old 60mm macro lens works on manual focus. I tried it out on a model train. Depth of field? Very tight!

Hello Kezug.

I have just purchased the 80D about a week ago. I also have the 70D for about a year and a half. I purchased the 80D mainly for my Sigma 150-600 C. We have a trip planned for May at Yellowstone so I was wanting to use the 70D with a Sigma 18-300mm as mainly landscape and the 80D on the 150-600 for wildlife. One thing I noticed right away is the shutter noise is a lot quieter than the 70D at high frame rate. Also get a bigger buffer when shooting RAW than the 70D. Oh, and the 100% viewfinder is awesome! Once I did AFMA on the 80D with the 150-600, sharpness and iq looked a lot better than the 70D did but I must admit I have not done any AFMA on the 70D with either lens. More intuitive layout of the menus on the 80D verses the 70D. I know these are just a few things but they are what I noticed in differences right away. I will have more insight once I played with it a little more but for my situation getting it has been a good idea!

I used an 80D and Sigma 150-600C last May in Yellowstone. I think you'll like the combo. I'm hoping to go back this May. I haven't really played with video yet, but I'm hoping to shoot more this year - I like the idea of 600mm with the 3x@1080p.

I have an album on my smugmug page for Yellowstone (link is in my signature). Most of the wildlife shots are with the combo.

Congrats on getting to go to Yellowstone!

edit: One thing I learned about video last year was if you are using a tripod, be sure to turn off your OS on the lens. I know it's common knowledge, but I didn't think about it and the OS caused shaking that ruined some videos. Rookie Mistake!
