Uh, I've had the console since November. And I got Forza 5 for free -- which is pretty much the only reason I bought it in the first place.

So, I'm finally being a bit responceable and backing up my photos.
( good thing my roomie has an 8tb NAS server )

Also, my camera is about a year old this month.

Started out with a kit t3i I paid $500 for, and a year later I end up with this. lol.


Never would thought I would have wound up with all this.
T3i
50mm 1.8
17-40 f4 L
70-200 f4 L
ex430 flash
several mem cards
ipad
several other little accessoreis, and my own website and I've gotten a few paid jobs, and have more in the future. ( a few prom photo shoots, a family shoot, a 50th wedding anniversary party, and high school graduation photos )

I also love this bag, the shoulder straps are kinda weak, It would be nice if they were more padded, but overall, holds all my stuff perfectly, and It was nice that it has a dedicated ipad slot instead of a laptop slot so my ipad does not get too beat up.

Also, I looked up MotoGP tickets today, and all the good seats that were left are in the $200 price range per ticket, so it looks like i'm going to be camping general admission this year. Shots won't be as good, but hopefully I'll run around and get some. Really thinking of getting qualifying tickets just so I can use that day for photos, and spend the race day actually watching the race not through a view finder.

What suggestions would you guys have for a lens that is somewhat comparable in image quality to the canon 70-200 f2.8 that wouldn't require me selling my second rig or my son?

Edit: similar zoom as well. Sometimes I can't get up close and personal as I'd like with my 17-55 kit lens.

As of similar zoom range and budget 70-200 F4 L would give you what you need. Can you give us more of a define budget? Also what Camera are you shooting with?
post #25457 of 29551
yeah, i got my 70-200 f4 L for $400 (used) and love it. New it retails about $700

Alternatively, there is a 75-300 IS that is good (not L quality, but still good and more zoom ) and a cheaper option would be the 55-250 that can be found bundled in some kits.

I'm shooting with a t3i. I don't have a budget per say, I just don't want to go crazy expensive. 70-200 f4 seems like a great option.

I've the same body, the 70-200 f4l works amazing with it.
It can be hard to steady in the long end, but I don't have the extra $400 so spend for the IS version.

Its one of the cheapest L glass you can buy, and along with the optics you get a closed body, exelent contruction, and even on the t3i, super fast AF.

the only bad thing is the f4, which can be a bit limiting indoors. ( but you can make up for it once you learn the feel of the lens )

I think self-plugging websites is against TOS, but if you want i'll PM you my website that has full size photos I dd with it last weekend on a shoot.
( and I can't link the image URL as I have anti-downloading stuff on my website. )



Not sure how great of quality you're going to get on OCN, but here ya go.

shot at f4 100iso on my t3i and I'm pretty sure of the 70mm length.

I'd recommend the 70-200 f/2.8 rather than the f/4....f/2.8 is sooo much better imo :D

 

I'm actually tempted to sell my 85 f/1.8 and get a 135 f/2 soon...now if only someone would by my 15-85.
