I find it interesting that my lens, 17 - 85 Canon, has bit the dust. The auto features built inside have failed and now a rebuild is in order to the tune of $240.00 which includes a replacement motor as well. My question is, "Has anyone else experienced this situation? If so what was your solution?"

Thanks Mike.

Thanks Mike. That shot below was shot in jpeg. NOW here is the RAW format pic that I edited. It is more accurate as to how I saw the truck. It was a cloudy day & the truck had a darker shade of purple (THAT is what caught my eye) than the one below...

Hi Mike I attached a photo to this message. I shot this with my lens zoomed to approx 300 mm. I was some distance from the truck. I used the editor I have (I still have the RAW image unedited to work on). Anyway this was hand held. For em anyway, I don't think it's too soft. All I did on this was crop & adjust contrast SLIGHTLY..

Comment by Karl Rose on June 9, 2014 at 5:55am

Yes I agree. Also the reason I upgraded is that my digital point & shoot has only the BIG lcd viewfinder to shoot with. It is nearly impossible to shoot outside especially if it is bright outside. I prefer to look through the lens to see what I am shooting.  

Comment by Karl Rose on June 8, 2014 at 11:08am

Hi Mike. I just shot a couple of classic trucks in a parking lot. From what I can tell in my playback on the camera, it seems to work well at the 300 zoom hand held. I could not see ANY camera shake. I'll know more after I start uploading pics. Now I have my settings where each image is captured in both jpeg & RAW. This is going to be very nice for me. I really want to learn about RAW but at the same time I can at least shoot jpeg while learning a new option for me.

Comment by Karl Rose on June 8, 2014 at 5:53am

Thanks Mike. I also got the 75 - 300 mm telephoto lens. In addition I got the fisheye & super macro items that I can screw on to the 18 - 55 mm lens & A 2x converter. There some very specific things I want to shoot. Family & vacations are not what I plan on shooting.

Hi all. I just got myself a Canon T3 as a birthday gift for myself. I would have got the T3i but my budget would not allow it. So far I am satisfied with it. Any comments and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Oh, not to be a bugger or anything, but I was really looking for a Nikon DSLR but for what I wanted the cost for that was like the national debt. I am happy with my choice so far.
