That's exactly how I feel about the 24-105. I need that wide angle stuff, as that is where most of my shooting occurs, and it's a great all-around lens on top of that.

Yeah, I've been looking at them. Of course reviews say they're not on par with the Canon or Tamron stuff even, but I'm super happy with the IQ from my Vivitar S1 and I'm sure it's at least on par with that only with AF, and OS if I go that route.

I'll post some samples of my Sigma OS. I've been more than happy with the AF and sharpness.

I find the 24-105mm to be quite bad at the wide end due to the distortion.. the 24-70mm II is a much better option. Or even the 24-70mm f4.

I might have an interest in your 70-300...Maybe. Although I think it would be redundant with my 70-200...

the funny thing with the 70-300 tamron is that it's quite good from 70-200, nearly as good as the L, but once you're @300, there's not much more improvement. @300, you've got to stop it down to F8 to get good sharpness, and it wont be razor sharp, but will be better than the 70-200 and rescaled.

AF is no where near the level of the L either, I've owned it before, but if you can live with the quirks, it's a great value. My personal opinion is that I would buy the 70-300 before the 70-200 F4, simply because I dont do sports, and super fast action is not my priority.

I have shots where I pushed the absolute limits of the lens, like here (near 100% crop from a crop camera!):

and just normal shots here:
https://www.flickr.com …022187226/in/ph​otostream/ (external link)

not completely decided if I will sell it yet, will take some soul searching.... if I do sell it, it'll be like $250.

I should let you try out my ultrawides.... you might fall in love.

it sees stuff your normal eyes dont really see, but you can adapt to it. Samyang 14 + beach rocks = altered perspective. huge downside is that our filters wont work..... another option is something like the 17-40 that owen has.... that one works with filters.

a real expensive one is the 17TSE, which is stupidly amazing, and can work with filters. I'm currently borrowing this lens and when I do have a chance to use it, it's like no other lens. It takes time to appreciate such a lens.... Truly the best ultrawide I've ever used, hands down, nothing else compares.

I also have another very inexpensive ultrawide, the 17-35 tamron.... very very good lens. Soft corners when wide open, but stopped down, it's very sharp all around, takes filters.

I correct for the distortion on the 24-105 in Lightroom and can't really complain. You've seen my landscapes.
I'm sure the 24-70 is better, and it will probably be in my future. I'm just saying I'm satisfied with what I have.
Being new to photography (going on 1 year now) I still have a lot of lenses to try out. What may seem good enough today may look like crap once I try the 24-70'or an ultra wide like the 14mm.
I'm trying to be patient and go through phases of trying different things. Trying all lenses under the sun would be a bit too expensive for me :)

For instance, I don't quite even understand what a tilt shift lens does, but i will try out the TSE17 one of these days.
I'm very intrigued by the dam yang 14 as well. All in good time :)

lens distortion correction can be easily corrected with lightroom, and with minimal loss to resolution.

but what a tilt shift does is in a whole different league. It fixes perspective distortion, rather than lens distortion. While you can fix perspective distortion in lightroom, you'll lose a lot of your actual image due to the resize.

yeah.... a tilt shift totally blows away normal lenses, especially with architecture.... but it can also be used as a normal lens too. Stitching is really easy too.

I don't always like the effect on architecture. As a human walking down the street, shifted is not how you naturally perceive buildings. You perceive them like a typical wide angle does, as you're looking up at them. Straight lines can look quite unnatural.

Mostly you are not viewing the whole building in one go, which is what a wide angle lens does, so it does look wrong. if you can see it in one go, you are further back and there is less lean.

Besides which photographs are not what we see, and we shoot to make things look the best we can, converging verticals are often a negative point, especially with landscapes (trees etc).

Well, I had been trying to decide between the 6D and the 5DIII. I decided to rent the 6D this weekend since it's my daughter's first birthday. I've rented lenses from my local store probably 20 times. It's normally like 40-50 bucks for the weekend. Well, I went to pick up the camera this evening. The guy rang me up and already had my card. He said it'll be $165.xx as he swiped my card. I went, "WHAT?! $165 for a weekend rental?" Long story short, I decided that was too much to spend on it just to see if I wanted it. I knew there was a very good chance I would end up with the 6D anyway just because I don't think the benefits of the 5DIII are worth it to me. So, I asked him if he would match the Amazon price (they were $100 over). He said sure and I took it home. :)

I should have some pics to share next week sometime. I'll be taking a lot this weekend, but I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to process. I've been putting in a lot of hours at work.

Anybody here use a 40mm pancake with their 6d?

I've been trying a bit of street stuff recently, I love my 85mm for the portraits I've been doing, but feel I could do with something a little wider.

Looked at the 35mm f/2, but it's about £400 - the 40mm is only £110.

Anybody any experience with this combo?

I love my pancake. If it weren't for the 85 I'd keep the 40 on my camera all the time. It's perfect for street photography, landscapes and I've used it for portraits too and liked the results. Check the thread in the lens section and you'll see a bunch of 6D owners I'm sure.

Hi everyone. I'm Brittany. I just started shooting a few weeks ago with a 6d and am also playing around with a Fujifilm Instax 210. I wanted to share some of my first shots from the three shoots I've done. What I want to capture in my photography are the ideas of feminine attitude and bucking the concept of traditional beauty. I'm extremely inspired by Danish singer Mo's album and I've been trying to capture themes from her music in some of my photography.
