Hello all first post with new camera... Just bought a Canon 5D Mark II with a 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro Lens.

I have a couple question below if some of you could help.. Thanks..

1. What is is the best MODE DIAL to use when shooting Micro shots? (With or without tripod)
2. Looking for new Tripod something versatile for Landscape, Micro, and some HD Video shooting 720/1080P. (I like Manfrotto but open to anything that has carbon fiber)
3. Next lens I plan on buying is the new Canon 70-200mm 2.8F IS II (I think these new version II lenses from Canon really bring out these Full Frame cameras)
I was thinking of going this route with new lens..
16-35mm f2.8 II, 50mm & 85mm (canon or Zeiss going to rent to see what I like) Canon 100-400mm? What would you recomend?
Also here is my first test shot of my new Micro 100mm 2.8F IS (hand held IS on no flash)

Thanks for your help...

Thanks for your help...
1. Is this your first DSLR? For macro shots, it's like other shots, just at a much closer distance. Support is often a must for macros, unless there's plenty of light (and IS might help). I like to use a monopod often for macro.

As for the mode dial, I use either M or Av typically for macros with the center AF point selected (or one of the others). Usually narrower apertures. Your fly shot looks blurry or OOF. EXIF?

2. Manfrotto, Slik, Gitzo, Benro are all good tripod brands. Consider the weight of the tripod and how mobile you will be. For me, I hike a lot with my gear, so I have a very light tripod (3 lbs.). The Manfrotto 190 and 055 series are good places to start. You'll also want to look into what kind of head you prefer.

3. Before you start dropping a lot of cash on L lenses, you need to spend some time with your camera and figure out what you like to shoot, and at what focal lengths. If you wanted to buy any lens in the mean time, go for standard zoom, like the 24-105 f/4L or 24-70 f/2.8L. Renting lenses is a great idea to see if it's something you'll use.

1) most people shoot macros on M mode or AV so they can control the DOF.

2) Gitzo, Benro, Manfrotto and Slik are all good brands to start with. but even with CF you have to consider how much weight you want to carry, if you like to go on hikes like Gone 3lbs (with head) would be an ideal setup. but theres no free lunch in the world. heavier tripods are most stable. right now i am using a CF (benro c269 or soemthing) which weighs about 3lbs without head, its stable enough for a 5d2 + 70-200L.

3) 70-200L is definably one of the best lenses for canon. but its heavy and kind of awkward to shoot (everyone stares at you since its big and white). 24-70 or 24-105 as Gone said might be better.

100-400L is a very very dated lens, and personally i cant stand the pump zoom. but its hte only canon in that range so you are stuck between a rock and a hard place(unless you want sigma or tamron)

Zeiss primes on canon do not AF so be aware of that when you rent.

Well, managed to find a sweet deal on a Nikon AI-S 28mm f/2.8 Series E lens and EOS adapter. A bit older and I need to manually adjust aperture and focus on the lens, but for the price I don't think I could have passed this up. In short, very excited
post #8947 of 29548
yay all equip is here ! now waiting for accessories before i start burning thru non-rechargeable batteries xDDD

B+W filters and batteries/diffuser should deliver today =]

*edit*

side question...

if like every once in a while, i find 1 or 2 pictures of sets have a partially corrupted picture (funny i can tell the corrupted part.. it was taken somewhere else at one point in time..)

does that mean the card is getting "used" =3 need to be replaced ?

My Crumpler The Industry Disgrace just came in today! So far, I am loving it! Absolutely better than my stock neckstrap.

Now I'm just wondering whether or not I should get a handstrap for my battery grip... I'd love it for portrait shots, but of course, if I do get a handstrap I can never put my camera upright.

On a related note, does anyone know if its possible to attach a handgrip to the bottom of my battery grip?

Just got back from a trip to Pittsburgh... The best of ~550 pictures will be online sometime tomorrow, most likely.
