Canon EOS 1D Mark II

1D2
Review Date: Mar 22, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $700.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Amazing feel to it. Fits perfectly in my hand. Iso 1600 is incredible looking at the age of the camera. It's incredibly fast and the 8,5fps is pure satisfaction.
Cons:
User interface is something to get used to, but I've just had it for one evening and I am already getting used to it. ( switched from canon to nikon, no back to canon ).

Yes it's true, I only paid 700 bucks for this 1D. More incredible is the fact that it only had 15000 shutter actuation's. That is incredible!

I now understand why this series of cameras is so addicting. It just gives you this feeling that's unbeatable. I've never been more comfortable with a camera in my hands and I'm sure that even though it's an old model. It will shine.

AWESOME!

Nikon 85mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor

1931NCP_180
Review Date: Dec 29, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $350.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Incredibly sharp, good isolation and just amazing quality. Focuses very well on my D200, even in dark situations.
Cons:
It's way too good, makes me want to replace the rest of my gear =)

Recently bought this amazing piece of glass, and I'll tell ya, it already is doing an incredible job in the studio, if you're looking at this lens, just buy it, I mean you really should.

It's incredible.

Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX APO IF HSM

Review Date: Mar 29, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $600.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Awesome price-quality ration. Fast AF, great build... And yeah, I might be a rare photographer saying that the weight is a con!
Cons:
Nothing really! Maybe the fact that the IF versions are quite rare down here in the Netherlands!

I speak of the IF version ( older ).

Wow! Just wow! Just got this baby in a few days ago but my first experience with it is amazing. Photos are sharp all the way through, from F/2.8 to F/16 with minimal differences!

Before getting this lens I was kinda itchy about getting the F/4.0 from canon or this one. So I put my faith ( once again ) into Sigma and really made a good decision.

Main complaints I have read about the lens is that it's so heavy and it might get tiring after a day.
...I have it mounted to a 400D without GRIP! And I find it quite light, maybe near 2KG in total. But totally nothing bothering for me! I really love the weight actually, gives me a sturdy good tough feeling and makes me hold it much steadier, and I don't mind holding it up for ten minutes or so!

The black finish is of course amazing and the focus hasn't hunted yet! Unless I focus on a subject at less then 1.8m, that's logical.

I am one happy camper with this lens, and with my newly aquired backpack it couldn't fit any better (with lens hood on).. No fussing when I take it out!

If you want to choose between the F/4.0 and this lens, take THIS! Even now I have been saved with the F/2.8!
