  1. The biggest difference between the 70 & 105, is F stops. I prefer the 2.8 for shooting concerts to allow more light in… Very rarely when I use the 105, do I actually zoom to the end of it. Ideally, if you do a lot of studio work, the 24-105 F/4L is ideal depending on how many lights you use. If you're on location, the 24-70 F/2.8L is (while heavy) ideal for a strobist like setup, or wanting to get as much light possible from the camera. IS would have been a nice addition to the 24-70…

  2. The comparison between the 24-105 and 24-70 is there somewhere. I was curious though which one is sharper? How does the 24-70 compare to the 24-105 at F4? I traded my 24-105 for a 24-70..and in some ways miss my 24-105…the is was nice and you could get the subject isolation by zooming in…..curious what the thoughts are on sharpness…hands down the 24-105 at f4 is sharper the the 24-70 at F2.8 …but what about at F4?

  3. With 24-105 you losing only 1 stop of light. Less weight, IS ( 3 stops of stability ) + 35mm extra is much more better choice. If you want big F number go with the lens which have 1.8 or 1.4.
    By the way 24-70mm mark II is out with redesign optics.

  4. My friend has this same exact setup, so I got curious to find out just how different this was to the "regular" set up, (entry level camera plus an 18-55mm 3.5-5.6) at the same settings. In terms of image quality, there was hardly any difference at all. This proves that it all depends on the person holding the camera, not the equipment.

  5. I'd love to share them but unfortunately, I haven't uploaded them and they were taken some time ago so I've lost track of the files. But to describe them, there was really no difference in the QUALITY of the image, I made sure that they were taken with both the cameras on even ground, the only real edge the 5D had over the entry level was it's 21 megapixels, so you could crop deeper in to the images it produced (but why would you want to do that anyway?). But everything else?. SAME.

  6. It's not the lens that sound different. In live view mode the mirror is already flipped up to expose the sensor in order to provide the live view. When looking through the viewfinder, the mirror is down to redirect the light from the lens into the viewfinder. So when releasing the shutter in live view with the mirror already up, it will sound different 🙂

  7. Hello, are you familiar with "MagicSFXphoto" (google it)? On their website you can watch a good free video featuring the right way to make fantastic pictures. It made it possible for Daniel to make pictures that have that jaw-dropping-effect while you take a look at them. Hopefully it will help you as well.

  8. It's an ok lens. It's just not sharp. If your trying to take any serious fine art landscape photos with a lens like this, you might run into trouble. I can't wait to try the new one.

  9. Hey there, have you heard about "Photo SFXart Tricks" (search on Google for it)? On their website you will find a useful free video showing the way to shoot better photographs. This made it easier for Joe to shoot pictures that have a jaw-dropping-effect while you take a look at them. I hope it will work for you as well.

  10. whats the exact setup you guys film videos with? what mic, camera, and lens for this shoot or your other shoots? I'm looking to shoot a documentary and need to know a decent setup thank you.. I have the rebel t3i

  11. Hi, are you familiar with "photo SFX art" (google it)? On their website you can watch a nice free video explaining the best way to take brilliant photos. It made it possible for Matt to take photographs which have that wow-effect while you take a look at them. I hope it will work for you as well…

  12. I bought this lens in February 2006 with an EOS 20D. This lens is still spectacular after 13 years. Not a mark on the glass anywhere. Very little indication of wear elsewhere, either. The only drawback is the lack of IS. I use it mostly on tripod shots, these days. It is great for portraits.

  13. That's a nice looking video made with 5D2 I guess. And here we are, 20 years later all people do is whining about lowlight performance, apparently because Sony can see a bit better in a darkness.
