Pros:Sharpness, silent AF, contrast and color rendering
Cons:Vignetting on TA but nothing you can not remove, and in some circumstances does not hurt
Opinion:I had into permanent loan. Then the day of the refund prematurely arrived, so I ordered it, I could not live without. I recommend it not only to experts or to the lovers of the fixed lenses, but especially to the novice photo enthusiasts who want to try a fixed lens. This lens will amaze you.
Pros:Speed ??AF, AF points cover, Good ISO estate Tropicalization, Dual CF / SD slot, Customize buttons, Ergonomics.
Opinion:I can only advise. And now the price is more than reasonable. You can safely forget about the annoying Vertical Banding Noise of the 7D. The chart at ISO 3200 files are still very valuable and workable than meet the usual suspects of dense sensor limits. The battery life is slightly less than that of 7D. It is most noticeable using the LP-E6 battery (those of the 7D for instance), its LP-E6N last longer.
Pros:Construction, durability, friction, quick release, panning, good accuracy.
Opinion:Solid, steady and precise. And it is. Initially even with clutch released the movement is not smooth but after a few sessions of use is a pleasure to place the camera. The 360 ??° movement is precise and very comfortable. Tightening thanks to the clutch is precise, I did not notice deviations noteworthy but perhaps because like others close the clutch and then block. The attack RC4 is great and safe and quick release works dovere.rnNon is light so strong shoulders or short walks;) rnLo buy back with eyes closed.
Pros:Overall, very stable, tiltable central column at 90 °, screw sections
Cons:Nothing ballast also has the hook :)
Opinion:I come from a Hama to 19.90 € and a Manfrotto supermarket to € 29.90. This paid € 161.60 online is absolutely another planet. Also tested in windy day and I can not complain stability despite being a 4 sections. It does not have the hook in the bottom of the center column, but the height of the mechanism to turn the column has a hook where you can hang your backpack (or other) to ballast (I am convinced that his purpose is just that) .rnL ' maximum height we want to clarify with the extended column is 152 cm and mechanism to reverse the center column is metal and not plastic. The screw is very practical and safe. One of the legs, on the section thicker, has a plastic sleeve for taking anti 'freezing fingers' and 'non-slip' very well curata.rnUsato with 498rc4 head 7dII and 70-200 f4 L (the heaviest goal I I have) and I never had a hint of instability. rnCon the 90 ° column or lower than 2 rear legsthose front or sinker to the hook above otherwise with the machine weight and goal is too unbalanced forward and just a breath to do damage. Its 45 cm when closed and 0 dimensions of screw allow me to keep it in your backpack. It is a feather ... is in fact is a tripod;) rnrnTornassi backwards .. well .. I would have taken before!
