    Of course! Though I call them "teachers" and "role models," not competition.

    What he said. You can see shadows, and into them. It's almost as if you had a fill flash going at that distance! Great composition, color, clouds. Make a nice big print.

    The tamron 28-75 is my workhorse. If the 18-50 f/2.8 is the same quality, though, I'd recommend it instead... As others have noted, 28 isn't that wide on a crop camera. While I haven't used any L...

    Your instincts lead you to interesting subjects, and that is an invaluable asset. Google "rule of thirds" for one idea that might help you with composition.

    Gotta pitch in with the naysayers here. I got the 50 f/1.8 for low light stuff, and it just doesn't focus worth a damn. I have a Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 that focuses fine in most situations, and it...

    I have the 28-75 f/2.8, and it is a wonderful lens. If I were buying today, however, I'd go for the wider 17-50. Eventually adding the delightful cheap IS-ed 55-250 makes a killer kit. Most people...

    If it's a good version, it should be a nice lens. Check out this review on Fred Miranda. I'd wonder about focus speed on an older lens, but hell, an "L" is an "L".

    Archiving old film digitally

    Cheap all-in-one-zoom lens wanted

    Ok,

    My perfect set up would be the 24-105L with assorted primes, a 35 f1.4, 50 f1.4, 100 f2, 200 f2... Maybe a 10-22 for wide stuff... Heck, if I had those lenses, it'd be silly to use my Xt,...
