Don't bother with a ball head on a monopod, I tried it out and it's ridiculously difficult to keep steady. The 323 was a perfect addition to the 680B. The combo is possibly good enough to be used as a "deterrent"/motivator should an altercation arise.

Why not just get the tubes then? confused.gif

The tubes that support CPU are like $100, or more. I want to get a Tele anyways, seems like a waste.

How much do you have to spend?
post #12467 of 29551
Around the same. $500ish, Would love to keep it around $350. I cant decide what I want more, UWA, or something around 25mm~ ..or even telephoto

25mm is not very wide on a crop. You're better off with something like the Sigma 10-20, or saving another 150 bucks or so and hunting a 10-22 on POTN.

That is, if you're set on a wider lens. Hell, if you check Canon refurbs, I got my 70-200 for just over 500 -- a steal.

I don't think I can get the refurbs in Canada? ..not sure though. Will check out.

I'd definitely get the Sigma over the Canon. I do want to be able to landscapes and such, but I think I'd have more fun with a telephoto, preferably the 70-200.
