  1. <p>Many thanks William , Marcus and Mike for an insightful discussion. It appears that the Tamron lens deserves serious consideration as it seems to offer a good balance of cost and quality. Buying the Canon may offer a marginal advantage in quality. I did find a used EF 24-70 2.8 L in good condition for less than 1000 but with Tamron I will be getting a brand new lens for that price. I do like the idea of prime lens as they always appear to be distinctively sharper than the zoom lenses' and I have a 400 5.6 which I love, but I feel that the zoom may be better suited to this focal length range in my opinion. Besides my camera bag is literally bursting at the seems. Perhaps some day William .</p>
  2. <p>Many thanks for all the responses. I own a Sigma 12-24 mm f/4.5-5.6 AF II DG HSM and Canon 70-200 L US. I am mostly interested in lens quality and sharpness . Image stabilization is not a huge thing as I mostly will use a tripod. I reckon the older version Canon 24-70 2.8 is available as well and could offer cost savings without compromising image quality. I have never used a Tamron lens but Marcus seems to be impressed with it , so will consider that as well.</p>
  3. <p>I am planning a trip to Northern Arizona .I intend to use Page as my base to explore adjacent areas including horseshoe bend and the slot canyons. I am considering Toroweap and Alstrom point as well but i believe it requires a high clearance 4x4 vehicle. I would appreciate any photo tips , does and donts in regards to that area and the photo opportunities that it offers. Thanks.</p>
  4. <p>I am looking for a midrange zoom 24-70 , to fill in the gap between my wide angle lens and 70-200 2.8. The camera body that i currently own is 5D Mark III. What are my options ? I am not averse to Non Canon lenses . I do possess a few Sigma lenses and have been pretty satisfied with the results. Many thanks.</p>
  5. <p>Slightly off the subject , going by this weeks TIME cover story , I was amazed to learn that Cuba boasts a literacy rate of almost 100%. The city is devoid of gun and drug culture and hence low in crime unlike its neighbors. Pretty cool !</p>
  6. <p>Thanks for correcting me Dieter. I am planing to visit the adjacent areas in Switzerland and Germany. Thanks for the info Charles . Will the location provide the mirror image reflection of Matterhorn or is it else where. What other photo opportunities would you recommend in the area. Thanks ~ Anis.</p>
  7. <p>I am planning a trip to Germany to photograph Matterhorn. I would appreciate any suggestion on planning such trip. What other photo locations should one consider in that part of Germany. Thanks ~ Anis.</p>
  8. <p>I am keen to go on a trip to take wildflower images and landscapes within continental unites states. I would like to entertain ideas and suggestions to help me decide on a location. Thanks - Anis.</p>
  9. <p>I recently noticed an option on photo.net allowing users to sell their images. Just wanted to know how others feel about it and what the experience has been so far. I looked around but did not find any images marked for sale. I would like to try the option but not having done it previously would like to know the dos and donts. Thanks.</p>
  10. How long does the fall colors last in Snowmass and Maroon bells area . We are planning a visit in mid October . Live there still be good

    amount of fall colors on display . What is the best time for foliage in the rest of Colorado ?

  11. <p>Sarah you might have just convinced me to go with the new Sigma 18-35 1.8. It has some excellent reviews and features very desirable and hard to ignore. Besides the price is right ; however it is on backorder at the moment due to high demand. BTW there is a lab test on Pop Photography - Nov 2013. which also gives raving reviews to this lens. The only flaw noted by an occasional photographer is autofocus problems in a few lens's.</p>
