Canon i9900 Photo

i9900_586x225_1_
Review Date: Feb 3, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Stunning colours, supports A3 and A3+ Results alone sold me this printer.
Cons:
none.

I think all has been said already about this stunning printer.
I have used and recommended Epson printers over the last 10 years but due to clogging print heads and banding turned my eye to change.
The very first print I saw from one of these printers had me sold, I read the reviews and bought one the very next day and can only praise its incredible results.
I use nothing but genuine Canon BCI 6 carts and use Canon PR-101 Super High Gloss paper in this printer and cannot give it anything but 10/10 with my vote.

Stunning results and the finished product has to be seen to be believed.

Pros: This lens is everything you read about it. Tack sharp, Beautiful contrast, Lighting fast AF for 500mm
Cons:
If I had to have a negative it would be the price here in the UK. Not Canons fault but the goverment but at the end of the day you get quality, You have to pay for it.

I have had its baby brother the 300mm f/2.8L IS for 3 years now and didn't think it could be matched, This awesome beast matches it in every aspect.
Works with both 1.4x and 2x converters and my prints at A3 have to be seen to be believed.
Quite a heavy lens but can be handheld for a decent sequence of shots before you tire, Using a monopod is a dream with perfect balance mounted on the lens foot, Make sure you have a sturdy monopod as the cheap models are definitely not for this lens.

I have marked this lens as I think it duly deserves. 10/10 in every aspect. I love it.


 
Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L USM

Review Date: Mar 24, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Tack sharp beyond belief. Colors..Contrast..Bokeh is everything that makes this lens simply awesome.
Cons:
I wish I could fault it.. I can't.

People talk about this lens being heavy and relatively slow Auto-focusing. I bought this lens for Candid and Portrait shooting and cannot fault it in either weight or AF. It is simply head and shoulders above the rest of the field.
I was certainly waiting for the MkII version of this lens to arrive, but after viewing so many good reports and seeing so many superb pictures from this lens my mind was made up.

If the MkII comes anywhere near this it will be fantastic.

Review Date: Dec 27, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: 100% tack sharp and balanced very niceley. Superb focus range for my needs.
Cons:
Canon converters will not physically fit this lens.

My lens collection consists of nothing but quality Canon lenses and never even considered buying a third party lens until I read all the reviews on this latest offering from Sigma.

Having had the Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM for over a year for some reason I never got to grips with it. I cannot fault the canon lens but I really never had the success I wanted from it.

Within the first hour of having this Sigma lens I was overwhelmed with the overall quality.. build and suberb results I was acheaving straight out of the box.

I know its always the man behind the camera but this is a fantastic lens.
Buy one now..
