im about to pick up 3 lens for my 7D my self
Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS USM
Canon 50 mm F1.8 (or should i save a little bit more and get a 1.4?)
Tokina 11-16 F2.8
Think they should be perfect for all my Filming and photography needs
What are you shooting that you'd use IS?
If it's paintball save your money and get the non IS and put the saved money into the 1.4 50mm
Most people get convinced by the people that work at camera stores that IS is essential when really it's not, as long as you're not shaking like a dog IS is just an extra couple hundred dollars you can save by not shaking a lot.
no. but yes
EKK has turned into a marketing thing, the old EKK was legit and meaningful. New EKK is all about $..
heres what OLD EKK was:
EKK IS A WAY OF LIFE, BOTH ON THE FIELD AND OFF. IN THE FALL OF 2003 TWO FRIENDS CAME TOGETHER WITH AN IDEA. THEY DECIDED TO GIVE PAINTBALL PLAYERS A WAY TO UNITE AND SUPPORT EACH OTHER. USING A DESIGN THAT HAD BEEN DOODLED ON SOME LINED PAPER, THE TWO PRINTED A SMALL RUN OF T-SHIRTS AND HEADBANDS THAT THEY SOLD UNDER A TRAILER DURING CUP. THE FEW OF US WHO WERE THERE THAT WEEK CAN ATTEST TO THE FACT THAT THIS WAS SOMETHING DIFFERENT. WE REPRESENTED EKK ON THE FIELD, IN THE PITS, AROUND THE EVENT, AND OUT EACH NIGHT, AND WHEN WE SAW ANOTHER PERSON WEARING THE MARK, WE KNEW WE COULD SAY “HEY” AND INSTANTLY HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON. THAT’S WHERE WE STARTED...IT’S ABOUT THE GAME. IF YOU WANT TO BE “IN” EKK…JUST GO PLAY PAINTBALL. GO LEAVE YOUR HEART ON THE FIELD EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU PICK UP YOUR GUN. DON’T WORRY ABOUT HOW YOU LOOK, HOW WELL YOUR GEAR MATCHES, WHO YOU PLAY FOR, OR WHO’S WATCHING. GET OUT THERE AND PLAY FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME…AND ONE DAY, WHEN SOMEBODY COMES UP TO YOU ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON AT WORLD CUP AND SAYS: “HOLY **** DUDE! YOU WERE WRECKING PEOPLE OUT THERE TODAY. WHERE ARE YOU FROM?”
…YOU CAN TAKE A SECOND TO WIPE OFF THE MUD AND THE BLOOD AND SMILE WHEN YOU SAY “THE EAST KOAST.”
