Well, few of my favorite shots from my trip to Spain in July.







I wish I had a UWA lens by then... a 10-20 or a 10-22 would be golden...









I know I commited a newb mistake of leaving the camera on Shutter speed priority when I shot the landscapes... let me know what you guys think, and I appreciate a few pointers

They look nice Dragoon, I like the first two. Where in Spain did you go? I've been there a few times myself. A few pointers though: have a prominent foreground object for you landscapes to draw the eye in, also consider leading lines (roads, streams leading in). Not having to foreground represented can make landscape shots seem distant and empty, but a good foreground makes the viewer feel like they're "there."

The foreground looks underexposed in the third shot and there's a large blown area of the sky. I also would increase the contrast in those first three shots to bring out the definition in those clouds.

Looks like a great place though, I've been only to the coast lines and never up north.

Thanks.

I went to the peaks of Europe and Cantabria, it's a beautiful place indeed.

Ah, so you suggest having something "up close" caught up in frame with the landscape, like floor or something? Thing is, I was on top of a hill when I took the first two shots, the 3rd, I was in the bus on my way to the top.

Thanks for the tips Gone.

Can't wait for my next trip... Prague


One thing, I admit... I caught the "disease"... I was looking for a substitute for the EF-S 18-55mm... so I looked into a few candidates, the 17-85mm, the 17-55 f/2.8 (expensive!) and the... 17-40 f/4L USM

Seeing ISO 12233 comparison photos(on "the digital picture") I was shocked when I saw that the 18-55mm IS was matching or really close to the 17-40 L at the same settings (sharpness wise, because in CA, the 18-55 was ran over)

I really considered adding the 17-40 to my want list, but the focal range gap between the 40mm and the 70mm might be more needed than I think lol.

The 17-85 loses to the 18-55 in alot of ways... especially in corner sharpness, that's why I barely considered it, unless I'm mistaken.

Hey guys, I should be getting my Canonet this Friday and I was wondering if anyone here had any tips or anything I should know about the camera. I have ordered a pair of Wein Cell batteries as they no longer make the mercury batteries.

Anyone have shooting tips for Rangefinders in general? Also, since I don't know much about film does anyone have tips for what kind of film to put through the camera?

I'm in the market for a zoom between my 10-22 and 70-200 myself. Ideally, I'd like to have the 17-55 f/2.8, I hear nothing but good things about it, but it is very expensive indeed. If I ever find a decent deal on it, I may grab it, but most likely I will get a copy of the 17-40L, which I've seen used in the $500 range.

And the new 18-55 kit lens is remarkable, Canon really listened to gripes about the old one. It's dead sharp, I was really impressed when I had my copy. And it is funny that it rivals the 17-40 in sharpness, but the 17-40, like you say, has better CA control. Besides that, the 17-40 focuses faster and has much better color reproduction and contrast. When I used my 18-55 in low light, I always got this greenish cast to my shots.

The 17-85 isn't a great performer as you've discovered, I never considered after reading reviews. One lens that I'm keeping an eye out for is the Canon EF 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM that's coming out with the 7D. It's also rather expensive, but has impressive specs (except the variable aperture of course).

Ooh, I've heard about the 7D kit lens! It looks awesome, but yeah, as you said quite expensive, but imho, if it is an awesome performer, it's worth the price, IIRC it's not as expensive as the 17-55mm f/2.8, but I think the price tag on that one is because of the constant aperture.

Why don't you consider the 24-105mm f/4L IS USM? If I had £800 to spend I would be all over that lens (Well... I do have £800 to spend, but they are already destined niiiice 70-200 )

I would like to have that one too! Really though I would love an f/2.8 wide angle zoom like the 17-55 f/2.8. But I'm also watching for the reviews on the new Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 VC lens.

my 17-55 f/2.8 lens is actually one of my least favourite of the lenses that I own. I don't know why, but for some reason I've never really liked it that much considering how much it cost, don't get me wrong though, the picture quality is very good.

I took a night tour of the infamous Waverly Hills Sanatorium last night, and it was pitch black (only tourers had flashlights, no internal lighting). So I did all hand-held and improvised supported shots (knee, ledge, ground, whatever ) with 1,2 3 seconds or more shutter speed. I haven't looked at them yet, but we'll see how they look on the monitor!

If you want, you can send me that lens so you don't have to deal with the frustration of it. I'll shoulder the burden with a nice F to EF adapter.

17-55mm and thereabouts is a focal range that I find myself wishing I had. I use my 10-22 for UWA type shots, like interior spaces, landscapes, etc., then I use my 70-200 for wildlife and distant people/objects. Yet I find myself wishing that I had something in between. I use my 50mm as my "in between" lens, but I wish I just had a nice wide angle zoom.
