I've not tested it good yet. Only a few shots to figure out the settings etc.
And now I'm in bed haha

I've got the 50mm f/1.8 lens, so need to save some money so I can buy a tele lens.

Sorry! Bad english.. feel free to correct me (:

What kind of Canon is it? You need to post some pictures you took with it sometime for us!

Now you know you'll have to post examples ;)
Congrats on the new purchase!

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

I shoot all Canon. To think Nikon is "more professional" is a mistake. IMO, Canon has much better lenses, and that is what makes the difference. Just look at the equipment used by the real professionals...see all those white lenses??


Nikon has lost it's footing.

I shoot mostly underwater so my equipment has been limited by the money it takes to upgrade. I still use a D-400 (small and compact for travel/weight purposes). I really want to upgrade, but the waterproof housing for a new camera is over 3,000.00. Not going to happen soon.

My favorite lenses are the 60mm macro, the tokina 1-17 fisheye, the 70-200 f2.8 L with doubler, and my 50mm f1.4 lenses.

A few of my photos from the trip I just took;

10-17




Macro (this seahorse was the size of a grain of rice)






You won't be sorry with you canon!!

I don't agree that Canon has better lenses then Nikon. And definitely not MUCH better lenses.
Both are very good, there are some points that Canon has better, but there are some other points that Nikon has better.
Canon used to be THE sport photography camera, but Nikon is now comparable with Canon, is what I read.
And I did a LOT of reading, for reasons why I should go to Canon :p And to be honest, I didn't really find good reasons why I should switch from Nikon to Canon. But it was just this feeling that I had so I just did it! :P
I also know a very good, professional, horse photographer, who's using a Nikon.

Although, I love my new Canon
I really want the 70-200 f2.8 too! So expensive :(
Very nice underwater photo's! So you dive? Cool!

Yes, I have a housing and two large strobes. I also have a large focus light. And, I have a gopro video that attaches to the top of my housing.

This is a similar setup that I had with my old point and shoot camera



My DSLR rig is a bit more complicated.
