[quote=Mr 100-ton;21732]anchorman, glad to return the help
I have several cameras, semi-pro, you should look at the
sigma 70-200 mm f2.8 when you want more range add a 1.4 extender.
look at www.bhphotovideo.com in new york, they are one of the largest camera retailers and wholesaler in the world, they have several thousands lenses and cameras in stock from 20 dollar cameras to 120,000 dollar lenses…
the sigma is compatible with the canon L series lenses, with the extender you get longer range which turns the lens into a f4.0.
to give you an idea about my equipment I have over 15 different lenses and have 7 camera till a crack head stole 3 of them.
get a UV polarizer and a lens protector. UV is about 60 dollars(cuts out the sun glare on the water and you can see through most windows without a glare. the lens protector protects the glass about 20 dollars, if you scratch the glass on the lens you mine as well buy a new lens, with the protector you just buy a new on for 20 dollars, make sure the UV polarizer is the type that turns.
any questions you can pm me or email me at email@example.com
just for your information I have had several photos of food and models published on various food products and skin care products
Thanks. I have several filters for what I have. All Hoya, multi-coated, and circular polarized for the L lens that I have now. Having just got this stuff, I’m still learning, but one thing I know for sure - I need more focal length. The big question is the image stabilization on a vibrating boat and a decent focal length for capturing vessels or rigs from 3 miles out.
Seeing all of these great pictures kinda peaked my interest, so now I’ve made an investment, but need to add a good zoom for the pictures I want.
I’ll email you later after I do my morning paperwork ritual…I’m interest in a Sigma lens as well.
Thank’s for the input. Now I just need to get good taking pictures in manual modes.
