Hi Digga, your congratulations are well deserved, you have a wonderfully gallery where you only select the best shots that you take. This is beautiful and a great tribute to your 5D, though I am not sure about the ISO1600!!! Fai on July 28, 2008

Thank you for your kind comment Fai. The quality of the 5F is amazing, this is really ISO1600 and it is still okay. The problem is that my tripod is to fragile for my big lense, it was not possible to expose more than 5 seconds. So I decided for ISO 1600.

I see, you are forgiven :p Sometimes using a tripod is a pain with a big lens (although my biggest compared with yours, the 24-70 F/2.8 is not that heavy). on July 28, 2008

This was the 100-400 lens, it is quite heavy for my tripod. The 24-70 lense is one of the best lenses of canon in my opinion. The quality and sharpness is very fine.

Thank you that you forgave me ;-)

Thanks Digga, the 100-400 is a giant! I wouldn't be packing that in my cabin baggage lol. I like the 24-70, but I am struggling a little to get it sharp, at the moment, its about the same as a 24-105, but I am still learning about it :) on July 28, 2008

I have the 24-105, it was in the kit with the 5D. The 24-70 is the more expensive and better lense in my opinion, a friend of mine has it. But for me the lens aperture is not so important because mostly I have a tripod with me.

I think I agree Digga, I don't take too many sports shots and from my experience it is not that sharp at f/2.8, and I really like the Canon lenses with IS, plus its easier to carry around. I am determined to figure out why the 24-70 costs so much more though!!! =) on July 28, 2008

Yes the Canon lenses with IS are great, it is always an advantage. The f/2.8 is very expansive but with this aperture it isn't really sharp. If you want to compare lenses you can do it with this hompage.

That's a cool site Digga, thanks! I have extensively used the 24-105, and my saving grace is probably the performance at the wide end especially the distortion and the light fall off (see this shot, the image is almost straight from the CF card; though I must admit it kind of makes it look better!)

Cheers, Fai on July 29, 2008
