  8. Have you ever tried using the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens on a 60D or even a rebel series body?I bet you still get great images.

  9. Or become a sniper, lol.  I subscribed solely because of your sense of humor (not to mention you gave great information), thanks

  10. No problem…glad it was helpful to you!

  11. Ok so this is very helpful. Thanks guys

  12. Unfortunately, the only way to get USM is to shell out the extra dough and buy a lens that already has USM. It's part of the inner workings and gears of the lens itself and therefore cannot be fixed by an extension or filter. Sorry….

  13. Hi, Ive just bought an EOS 7D with the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III which as you mentioned does not have USM. What exactly am I looking for extension wise to give it USM?


  14. Ha, thanks for watching. I'm glad it was helpful to you.

  15. Thanks Ray. U made learning very enjoyable. I love ur delivery and I love u!!! Thia helped sooo much!

  16. Sounds like a plan! Take care.

  17. Thanks alot for your suggestions.. Im gonna take a deeper look into the 35mm and the 50mm lens and see which is more appropriate to my needs.. Thanks again, it was great amount of help!!

  18. All that to say, those are MY recommendations. The question you must ask yourself is: What annoys you about the kit lens? Or, what does it feel like it's missing that you need?

    Does it not let enough light in? Does it not zoom in enough? Does it not have a shallow enough depth of field? The answers to these will help you figure out what to look for in your next lens.

  19. If you can afford it, I'd say go for the 35mm f/2…it rarely leaves my camera body. It's great in most lighting conditions, pleasant bokeh, has a great viewing angle for the crop-sensor cameras, and is a great quality build. The 50mm f/1.8 would be my 2nd recommendation. The price is much better than the 35mm, but you get a lower build quality with it and a more "zoomed in" angle. It rarely left my camera after I got it, and, mainly did because I needed a wider viewing angle.

  20. Hi.. i have a Canon 600D with the 18-55 mm IS lens kit… I've had this for quite a while now and i'm looking forward to move a step up.. Im looking for a good all-rounder lens which is not too expensive.. Can you suggest any options?
