Which Combo Is Better?

Mon Jul 04, 2011 12:38 am

Dear all,
Please advise which combo in your opinion/from your experience is better in terms of giving clear, sharper images. What about high ISO performance of these combo's? Which one gives faster/better focusing? Combo's are Canon EOS 50D+Canon 70-200mm F4.0 L USM and Nikon D90+Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR.

Thanks in advance to all!
Brgds,
Yerbol
With best regards from Almaty

Although I shoot Nikon, based on what I know the 70-200/f4L IS should be considerablly sharper than the nikon 70-300. so if you only consider these two lens, I would suggest go with Canon, remember take the IS version of that.

I thought you were already using this equipment? Good equipment helps, but it's the person using it that makes the most difference.

well said. I've been shooting the same gear for 6 years now, can outshoot pretty much everyone with more "modern" equipment who doesn't know what he's doing and buys new gear every few months because of course their failure is due to their gear rather than themselves (and no, I no longer post images here after some episodes with overly zealous and brand religious screeners several years ago, just FYI. Don't know if things have changed, don't care. Come here to read and chat only now).

You're talking a semi-pro Canon lens vs. a cheap amateur Nikon lens. Try to get equivalent equipment in both brands and you get very equivalent performance.
Any difference is more than compensated for by operator skill, it'll be marginal.

Hi Darren!
Yes, I am Canon guy! This is not for sake of the change. I had a discussion with my friend who got Nikon combo and we were comparing combos. No doubt Canon combo with 70-200mm f4.0 is much better.

In the right hands, then maybe but equipment is only a part of the story.
