i'm new here but i am already used to airliners.net! my screen saver is since a long time a plane or an helicopter from a fabulous airliners.net photographer!
I'm french, 30 and i work for the french army, i'm in the Balkans at the moment.
I'm very fond of photography, i love taking pictures during my flights and i love shooting planes around airports!!!
I have a Canon 350D with a 18 55 and a 55 200 (basis kit!) for 4 or 5 years i think which today doesn't fit me very well anymore.
I would like to change my configuration, and i have found the following items:
- canon 7D
- 70 200 f/2.8 L IS USM
- 17 55 f/2.8 IS USM
or - 24 70 f/2.8 L USM
and a canon x2.0 teleconverter
i am always taking pictures that's why i would prefer a f/2.8 because i don't only shoot planes! (my family, portatraits, landscapes...)
What do you think about such a configuration?
Thanks for your help!
I will try to buy my new configuration during my trip in Balkans in order to make an order in America because a friend can provide me his American APO adress and prices are less expensive than in France. I think i will only buy the 7D in France.
I hope i will have my new canon before coming back to France because there are a lot of great things to shoot here! Yesterday, a german Bell UH1 landed in the snow, in a great IMC weather with all the lights switched on!! i was regretting to not have my canon with me!
