that was a different time. machine gunning back then probably meant shooting more than 24 frames in a day.

to capture the decisive moment HCB might be hammering 10 fps or shooting video.

i know ansel adams would be a lens testing, pixel peeping measurbator and a monster with photoshop :D.

What you say goes against everything HCB was about. And how do we know this? All ya gotta do is read.

Adams would have perfected a zone system for digital and still be shooting large format with a digital back.

For me it'll be the Tokina 11-16 f2.8 Canon EF-S 17-55 f2.8 I.S. and Canon EF 300mm f2.8L I.S.

Nice trinity! I might replace the 300 with the 400 f2.8L I.S. if I had the money too. But I wouldn't complain with your choices!

It depends on the person and his/her shooting style/necesities. In my case:

- Sigma 10-20mm / Canon EF-S 10-22mm
- Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS
- Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L

24, 50, 85?

It will be the same as any other APS-C IMO. If 7D has super resolving powers with its packed CMOS, then I'd go for L versions of the above.


dont you guys think 85mm is too narrow angle of view for a crop? the 85mm is usually for portraiture on a FF body... but on a crop body, its just way too tight and hard to hand hold no?

I'd get the 11-16, 17-55, and 7-2 2.8 IS. Very sharp and fast.
