Is this lens will be good on my 500d ? I mean the result....? :rolleyes: thanks

No, you have to buy either 1D4 or 7D or 5D2, hehe :D

It will be great on all Canon DSLRs but newer is better for some reasons.

erh a lens that costs a couple thousand $ and then a tripod made for a point and shoot :) sorry but couldnt resist why not get a tripod thats sturdy enough to handle such set up?

I had a long convo with someone who works with canon,didnt see the point in getting a £150 tripod if im never gonna use it,still it seemed to handle it ok.

Edit,handheld at 1/10 2.8 1600iso

It worked well with my previously owned 450D and I don't see it not doing good with the 500D.

Pretty much :lol: the 70-200 2.8IS will never get use on that tripod cause i know it would struggle with the weight it was only that one time it was used on it i don't intent to use it on a tripod.

the only time a tripod ever gets used is when doing the writing in lights and when doing that its fitted with the kit lense and the tripod has no issue with that.

Correct - you can buy the lenses and then change the body and usually "most" will work with the newer bodies.

If you're shooting Interior Design you might want to consider a wide angle or Tilt/Shift lens rather than a zoom telephoto.

I was just kidding, this lens will be great on any body including your 500D, i was using it on my 350D or 30D and had great results, so i am sure your 500D will be good enough, aren't all people saying that it is the photographer not the tool?

Good luck!

I already have sigma 17-70 f2.8, and planning to buy Tokina 11-16 f 2.8,,,but this white lens is for my other interest, like street photography ..;),,, I like combine my hobby and my job, when I built the project, there is so much things to photograph,,,the labour, the material,,,thats just like a story board of project process from A to Z....and the happy ending is when the hand over of the project happened.,,,, ;)

Hoff, I just saw that you joined in here, welcome! It'll be interesting to hear of your impressions, being as you are used to those great primes.

I use this lens as a "workhorse", getting versatility in changing conditions, like events, sports and street photography and such. To me, it delivers very nice results, but not neccessarily as an "all-in-one" walkaround lens or for the stuff primes are cut out for. The IS is nice though when called for.

I use it on a monopod if I'm doing something like sports, but I don't think I've ever used it on a tripod:).
