A mate & I got "encouraged" to attend this years' Baby Expo by our respective better halves. Turn lemons into lemonade I say, so I brought the 500D along as well :p And I never thought the Sigma 24-70 would turn out this damn good. Really, really, really liking this lens a lot.

Thanks. I could lie and say that I did that on purpose when I took the photo. But then I'd lying :)

And thnx luke. If you got something covered for the wide stuff (below 24mm), then this range is proving to be very good. I'm really enjoying the extra 20mm or so for portrait stuff (on top the regular kit lens replacements; tamron 17-50/canon 17-55/etc). It's built real solid too. Only weighs slightly less than the 70-200. Also it's turning out to be pretty darn sharp wide open when I can focus that shallow dof properly on what I want :p

Not to forget the pseudo macro shots you can make with it. And all at a really reasonable price. It's now the official #1 lens on my 500D:cool:

the only problem is I want HSM or USM and IS or OS in my next lens >< so I'm thinking 17-70 OS HSM even though its "fake HSM" and the 15-85 EF-S USM, bleh lens choices.

in Other news, I went to best buy today and tried a 7D, it was a mistake.... its beautiful... and amazing.... and wow.... :[lol

Whoof there are a LOT of T1i cameras in use from the pages here. I just registered here and can see I am going to enjoy the forum. This is my 1st Canon but not new to photography. I started out with a Minolta SRT101 back in the 60s as my 1st SLR while in the military. I gave my Minolta to my youngest daughter for her to learn SLRs on. She got a EOS XSi for a gift and that provided feedback for me to buy the T1i. I can see I am going to learn a lot here

From my experience with it at a camera store, the viewfinder was the coolest part :D Nice and big, AF points, grid, etc. look much more impressive. It felt a bit sturdier and more ergonomic. The shutter sound is better :cool: and the 8 fps is awesome.

Here are some shots from my recent trip to Italy. I was pretty impressed with my T1i, and was even more impressed that I stayed out of auto mode! Thanks to everything I have been reading on the site...it has helped me improve a lot.
C&C welcome.

Yep...kit lens is all I have, so far.

I am going to try and do some Post Processing to get rid of the crane in the top left of the first one, but I am still doing the tutorials for photoshop! Small steps... Last time I was into photography, I was helping my dad develop in the basement...no PP back then ;)

I feel the same. It will probably just turn out to be user error, but I keep wondering if my lens isn't calibrated as good? Even on a tripod I can only dream of getting shots as sharp as Dankata's at full zoom (yes even with PP). I printed out some autofocus test charts the other day and there doesn't seem to be a front/back focus problem.

I feel the same way. Its either me or the camera though, as i get the similar things with all my lenses. :(

haha I cant help you with the first step, my laptop's moniter apparently doesn't have contrast control, just brightness, eek

I can't even find on my laptop where to adjust the brightness and contrast. No matter where I look I cannot find it! It has windows Vista, it's Toshiba Satellite. Any ideas anyone?


Gripped T1i and lots of other Gear

I posted this in the pets section, but I thought it should be here also.
This is my Weimaraner named Abby.
I know I cut her foot off, I rushed the shot and was zoomed in across the yard.
I know I didn't use the rule of thirds, I wanted her to be in the center.
