When I was growing up, my favorite place to be was Toys R Us. Now that I’m grown up, it’s B&H and Amazon. Speaking of which, there are massive rebates on toys photography item going on right now. Here’s a comprehensive listing (with reviews), but be sure to check out our holiday gift guide too.
Canon Double Instant Savings
And so it ends, the Sigma 70-200mm F/2.8 EX OS for Canon EF mount is ready to be shipped back after the loan period. After exhaustive tests and trials on both the Canon 5D Mk II and 7D, we’ve come to a couple of conclusions about this lens that place it far ahead of anything we’ve seen before from Sigma.
Would you want to shoot a wedding or engagement session with the Sigma 70-200mm F/2.8 EX OS for Canon mount? I asked myself that same question recently. After getting our first impressions with the lens, we found sharpness problems with it. We shot ice skating and night scenes. We shot wildlife with it. And in two different tests, not many of you were able to tell the difference between this lens and a 20 year old Canon lens. So here’s the question: why not?
What do you do on a Saturday night? Do you ever go out to shoot just for leisure? The chances that you do this during vacation are very great. If you are considering renting or buying the Sigma 70-200mm F/2.8 EX OS for Canon, a couple of tests doing touristy-things were conducted using this lens and the Canon 5D Mk II + 7D. Video, landscapes, and even ice skating were shot. If you want to catch up on the rest of our postings then take a look at our impressions, our sharpness test, and shooting squirrels.

Go to DXoMark, and try this out yourself: you’ll see that the Pentax K-5has beat out the Canon 5D Mark IIand the Nikon D700DSLR cameras with full frame sensors. Mind you, the K-5 has a smaller APS-C sized sensor. After that, pit the K-5 against the Nikon D300sand the Canon 7Dand you’ll start to become even more amazed. Not long ago, Pentax disappointed many of their customers with the K-7. Then the K-xcame out and it began to wow them. After this, the company released the 645D along with the Pentax K-rand the K-5. With the results of what the new sensor is capable of, it seems that the company is poised to fight back. The cameras now rank very high up on DXo’s highest score listings. More after the jump.
We believe that the Canon 7Dand Canon 5D Mk IIcomplement each other very well, but questions have arisen as to which one is better to get all the shots on your wedding photography checklist. Go onto the most popular photography forums and you’ll see this question appear at least three times a month in one way or another. We’re aware that in some ways this is like comparing apples to oranges, but it is a subject that is well worth exploring. David Ziser concluded that he’d rather go for the 7D; but is that right for you? We’ve noticed readers typing this into the search bar of the site—so since the 1D Mk IV is out of range for many of you, here’s your answer.
