Doubts About Lenses With Canon 50D. Tips Please

Hey Fellas,

How are you. Well, I always recur to you guys as you seem to know a little bit more about some subjects. I have some doubts about new camera gear, and I thought you might be able to help. I currently have these

Canon 400D with 18-55 Normal lense (Selling cam with 18-55 lens)
Canon L Serie 100-400 IS USM EF

Now, Its about time to change this and I was looking at the 50D as I find it a perfect step up to change from the 400D as the 30-40-50D series are nice and from what Ive read, great cams. Now, here is the deal. I see there is a pack for the 50D with Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Standard Zoom Lens. I am interested in this pack specifically.

The 18-55 in my current cam SUCKS..... bad, and beside i have a gap between 55-100mm. This one seems better, as it is a good range from 18-55. I do a lot of cockpit shots on the jumpseat flights so I would need a 18MM at least as I have now, and also, some good range to cover, 200MM. So, I like this one. I always had the idea to buy a fisheye or the 10-22, but they are way to expensive right now, and still, I would need something to cover that from 55 or 22-100mm!

So, my question is, on the canon side, what lenses can you recommend.... I really want something similar to this, with a good wide angle range covering at least 18mm, on forward. As I said, I do a lot of jumpseating and I need a wider angle lens and enough to cover at least up to 100MM. Please, can any one recomend some canon lenses, Image stabilized preferred as well please. Thanks!

Stefano

•I will be doing an air to air photoshoot from a C130 to a 727 from the back door. With the 100-400 itts too much to start with, but 18-55 is too little!
• I need a lens that has some good range
• I consider the 18mm because I use it in cockpits a lot and I cant necesarilty afford a separtae lense for cockptis only Example, 10-22, 15mm fisheye etc

1) 50D+18-200 = $1850

2) 40D+10-20+18-200 = $2028

Difference = $178

Why buy a 50D? The difference in price is only $178 and you would have all your focal ranges covered. Just a thought.

Interesting thought Matt. Hmm, well what i thought is this. The 40D is 10MP as well as the 400D...... what are the real advantages? Now, the 40D is dropping prices, here in my country cameras loose value a lot as well, so If i could buy the 40D which already has some time, I would sell it say in two years for a VERY VERY low price which is unfortunate. Therefore i thought of buying the 50D which can have a higher resale value in the future and use it more time, thats the only thought.

Then again, you have a good point.....

They didn't really rip it, it got Highly Recommended(Just) which is mainly because it's too expensive. Image quality was on par with 40D after they had used the proper conversion program version. Problem with the comparing images on DPR is that they are differently focused so it's not that easy to compare them with 40D.
What is true is that 40D is super value at the moment, and even if you look at a lower resell value in some years there is a $500 difference to start with.

What I have found from the 18-200 is that it has some serious vignetting at 18mm. Other than that is a nice light weight lens to travel with, but I am not sure of it's capabilities when it comes to spotting. Also a tad noisy, but that is not something we generally care about when those P&W come roaring at us  Wink

The 50D needs top notch glass, don't spend money on the 18-200.
Like most Canon consumer lenses it sucks.
Take a look at this comparison between 40, 50D and Nikon D90.

So you are admitting you would buy a canon product, interesting.  Smile

Seriously though the fact the 50D has a 920,000 pixel LCD screen on the back and 5 more mega-pixels would be worth the extra $178 to me.

Here are some quotes.

in terms of per-pixel sharpness the 50D cannot quite keep up with the better 10 or 12 megapixel APS-C DSLRs in the market.

the smaller photosites are clearly producing more noise (as shown from our RAW comparisons) and so Canon is having to apply more noise reduction to keep to acceptable noise levels, this of course means a loss of detail from ISO 1600 upwards.

Considering the disadvantages that come with higher pixel densities such as diffraction issues, increased sensitivity towards camera shake, reduced dynamic range, reduced high ISO performance and the need to store, move and process larger amounts of data, one could be forgiven for coming to the conclusion that at this point the megapixel race should probably stop. One consequence of this is that the 50% increase in pixel count over the 40D results in only a marginal amount of extra detail.

We're by no means saying the 50Ds image quality is bad but it's simply not significantly better than the ten megapixel 40D. In some areas such as dynamic range and high ISO performance it's actually worse and that simply makes you wonder if the EOS 50D could have been an (even) better camera if its sensor had a slightly more moderate resolution.

Read between the lines. Amazon doesn't want to upset Canon. The 50d is a dud. Buy a 40d, it is cheaper and easier to use.

I started with a 400D and moved to a 40D. The difference is night and day. Despite having the same megapixel count, the 40D image quality is way better, especially in high ISO situations. The 40D feels much better (at least in my hand), I can shoot faster with it, the screen is nicer, and the viewfinder is bigger and clearer. It also has many other extra features that have come in handy (live view, highlight tone priority). I can go on and on... In summary: the 40D is a very nice upgrade from the 400D. Just looking at the megapixel count doesn't tell you much about how good a camera is.

If you read Reply #1 more carefully, which I assume you are referring to, it claims that for an extra $178 you can get the 40D and the 10-22.

There are not many lenses that start from 18mm and have good range. My personal recommendation, if money is not an issue, would be to use the 17-40 L or the 10-22 for the wider stuff (depending on what you want; the 10-22 is ultrawide-only, the 17-40 is a very nice IMHO general purpose lens on the 1.6x sensors) and either the 24-105 L or one of the 70-200 L (there are four to choose from! see the separate thread on them; my personal preference would be the f4 IS) for the longer stuff, depending on what focal lengths you want to reach. Also note the the 24-105 L compliments the 10-22 nicely, and the 70-200 compliments the 17-40 nicely.

If money is an issue, consider getting the latest 18-55 IS kit lens (which might not be great, but apparently it has decent sharpness and is cheap) for the wider stuff and one of the 70-200 L for the longer stuff.

The only lens that's reasonably wide and has some range that I can think of is the 17-85:

But, again, it's a compromise.

Anyway, good luck and happy shooting.

Ive read some rather good reviews on it, but then again, its an all purpose lens, good for family, etc, but maybe not the best for me. First, I have already 100-400. so why cover 200 again, (Regardless of the air to air shooting) and this lense could be replaced by a Ultra wide angle and a mid range instead?


I have done the following investigations and here are some interesting lenses I have considered so far.

Mid Range:
Canon 17-85 IS
Canon 28-105mm

Ultra Wide Angle:
Sigma 10-20mm
Canon 10-22mm

Fish Eye:
Sigma 8mm
Tokina 10-17mm (Great pics and reviews!)

Supposing I would buy the body of the 50D, I have considered the 28-105 and the 10-17mm Fisheye..... Thats one possible combination? I would have to see some more lenses like the ones SNATH recommended.

Trust me and don't put an Canon consumer lens in front of the 50D with the 10-22 as an exeption.
The Sigma 10-20 works very well as does the Tokina 10-17 though I would sell them both in favor for the Tokina 11-16 which is setting new standards.

The Canon 10-22/3.5-4.5 optics might be comparable with the Tokina 11-16/2.8 but the build quality and speed are not, on top of that the Canon is over 100,- EU more expensive....... over here anyway.
So that should be no brainer.

The 50D price goes down rapidly in the Netherlands.
Initial list price was about 1600 EU, in the first week(when I got it) it was already down to 1150 and now one month later it's 1049.

I see the term "big prints" thrown around a lot. Just how big are you talking? A 40D will go 14 x 20 at 180ppi. I have seen prints from a D100 ("only" 6mp) @ 12 x 18 that are as good as anything you will ever find.

Still only 18mm with your 1.6x crop factor.

Personally I am addicted to wiiiiiide angle. Full frame at 15mm is so much fun that I am saving to get the 14-24 f/2.8. You just can't go wide enough!

Mind going into greater detail about these so called flaws? I own the 24-105 f4L. I have owned it for almost a year and have shot almost exclusively with it since I bought it. I love it, and I have yet to find anything wrong with it. When I researched before buying, I did see a lot of mention of bad copies early on but that Canon had addressed the issue.

What's wrong with the 28-135 that comes with the 40D? I mean, compared to my 100-400L there is a pretty big difference but I've seen plenty of photos on here with that kit lens. And it covers a good range except the wide angle stuff of course.
