Hi,

Can somebody PLEASE kindly post some pictures taken using 5D and 7D. Pictures speak 1000 words than any reviews. It would be really nice if somebody can help me out with some link.



One important question,

Has anyone tried a 50-500 sigma on the 5D or the 7D . If so can you tell me how good the AS works at the long telephoto @500mm or with a tele.



thanks

Hi VAtechtigger,

Yes i did. I was looking at users picture than just the reviewers. The reviewer is a seasoned photographer. And most of the photos are tailored ones for the review meaning not random shoots.

Real time pictures of events and surprise ones add more value to my personal perception and thats why i was looking at someones posting. No offence meant.

And i was particularly looking at the ability of the AS at the long end of the zoom, and specifically the 50-500 from sigma. I may get a 5d or 7D pretty soon and wanted to get a simple two lens kit that would cover from 18-500.

I would be greatly interested to see some long telephoto shots from either of these cameras. I am confident of the pictures being similar in both these cameras. Hence was looking out for a specific users pictures than the review pictures.



thanks

SVB

Jinkage...

Nice pix! I was especially interested in your subject material, as I live in the B'ham area (Hoover, actually), and have been considering a 5D, due to ownership of a pretty good collection of Maxxum film equipment. Can you tell me what lens(es) you used on the featured shots and, if you have the kit lens, what your impressions of it are? My most-used lens on my film Maxxums is the 28-85mm, and will need a replacement for the wide end of that range, due to the 1.5x multiplier. The kit lens looks like it would fit 80% of my shooting needs, but I'm concerned about soft IQ.

Have a great day; enjoy our "early spring".

Nooner...

Very nice shot; thanks for posting. When the planets and my checkbook align, I'll probably order the 5D with 18-70. I've got a bag full of Maxxum lenses for my two 700i film bodies, and it would be a shame to let them go to waste...

50mm/1.7
24mm
