It's a great lens if you only got one. I also have a Canon 70-200, Sigma Art 50 and Canon 10-22. I only started a few years ago, and only for the cars. It's a lot of fun, but it is a good bit of work to learn how to properly use the gear. But totally worth it for the long term.
    Nice,Seems the lens and add ons cost more then the camera itself ! Lol

    I think I'm going to buy one,If you were to get a camera and one lens. You would go with the 60D and the sigma 18-35 to start with ?

    The lens is what matters most. You want to buy a body only. None of that kit lens poop. For you I think the Canon 17-55 2.8 is best. 60D is fine. Even T5i. I'm honestly not up on the latest bodies at all. I loved that 17-55 though. I'll post a pic taken with it.

    @bknewtype Please add. I'm about to hit the road. Actually going after a new MBP 15. Anybody have one?

    Crap. Those don't look good posted from the phone. Look for those in my flickr and pop them open.

    While 60d is a great camera for what it is/at the time, it is also very old. Discontinued and can only get it used. If u could drop a few more pennies, id def suggest getting the 70d , which is a 60d replacement

    18-35 is a great lens but very limited for an only lens. As mops suggested a 17-55 would b better as the range is larger.

    At the end it really depends what kind of style u wanna shoot. I personally prefer primes ( fixed lens) so i have a few lens i carry with me. 50 1.4 is a great starter and all around prime lens. But for a super beginner primes might not be easy to use


    These are shot with a 50 1.4 prime lens

    Those look great! I have to do some research and learn a bit more. I didn't realize the lens was so important. I thought the camera was the biggest part lol

    So basically I would buy the 70D camera and then just add different lens to it for specific shots ?

    What's the difference between the 17-55 and the 50 1.4 ? Im assuming clarity and zoom capabilities. I love when people blur the surroundings like that. Looks awesome


    @Mops They definitely look better on Flickr. But the motorcycle on here is still pretty damn clear. Better then I can accomplish from the iPhone lol

    There is a lot to learn with photography. If you are just into point and shoot, id suggest a sony mirrorless camera

    They sell both body only and body with kit lens. Usually kit lens are very basic and quality is not that great ( colors, sharpness, etc)

    Correct a 17-55 2.8 has the ability to go as wide as 17 and zoom as much as 55. Lowest aperture is 2.8 ( lower the number the more blurry the bg is ). The 17-55 cant mimic the 50 1.4 as it can only go as low as 2.8. However since it can have a constant 2.8 it may b very valuable to b able to achieve pics zoomed into 55 and zoomed out with 17.

    At the end it really depends what kind of style u want but most def as a beginner to photography id choose a zoom lens. 17-55 is pretty versatile.

    Mike I'd get the 7D and that 17-55. 2.8 will provide the blur you're looking for. While you're at it, grab the 50 f/1.4. It's only like $325 I think, and it's a fun lens. You should visit B&H sometime. That is where I like to order most of my stuff from, and you can visit in person. I ended up ordering the MBP from them earlier today.

    I always push out to the fender. The SQ actually has some poke at the rear. Looks are improved from every angle. Spacers are fun to play with :)

    Thanks! We ended up getting at least 7 inches. I've had my fun, and I'm ready for it to go haha. I'd like one more of the same, so I can take the SQ out.

    Photography can get expensive real quick buying nice stuff. I've got a T2i with 18-55 and 70-200 lenses...purchased with Marriot reward points

    It could take much better pics if I spent the time to educate myself. I did once a few years ago to take night pics while in key west and it paid off...

    It can for sure! I have like $3,500 in my 4 lenses alone. But like I said, they're really important. You should really consider a new lens at some point. That 17-55 would really impress you. Editing software helps a ton too. I have Lightroom and love it. It's everything a hobbyist needs, and around $100 IIRC. I'm certainly not great, but it's a lot of fun to shoot and edit.

    Hahaha! Would be a blast. Think I'm mostly hung up on the cost of entry and if I ended up not keeping up with it. Need more fun coupons

    T5i and 17-55 would do you just fine. $1,250 and done. And we could help you find refurb or slightly used too.

    Mike - This said, the Canon refurb program is great! And this spot is killer for gently used gear at 30% off.... http://photography-on-the.net/forum/

    It is! And never any shady crap or BS. I actually bought mine there.

    No a clue, unless @agautohaus can help.

    Hmmmm new ECU is tricky, @Karbon unfortunately I may be able to get you the hardware but the flash will be an arm and a leg at the dealership. I have a guy who can clone ECUs but I'm not sure if he can do it for every model and he probably won't guarantee that it will work shoot me a PM with more info if needed, I can look into it.

    I'm not sure I will need to flash the new one. I want to flash different tunes on the spare one and do some testing :)

    I'll shoot you a Pm! Thanks

    I'll shoot you a Pm! Thanks
    PM replied before I saw this unfortunately whatever ECU u get will need to be cloned and flashed off your old ECU with the immobilizer removed. That's about the only way to not go through Audi.

    ^^^ I miss the old days when I could just swap the ECU out for my B5S4 during warranty work...not so easy and convenient nowadays.

    Do you have pics of an RG-R on an Audi? I like the "idea" of forged rims, but I like your CH-R's enough that I may compromise...

    EDIT: duh, just google Audi RG-R. This thread has got me so conditioned to seeing the best pics possible that I end up forgetting to do stuff myself. It's like what GPS did for people's sense of direction

    Lol!! These are not only forged rims, but SUPER light (19.8 IIRC) die-forged rims. Best of the best. That 19x8 ET42 would work great. Only needs a re-drill. 8" on 245 with 5mm spacers would look so hot.

    Mops, why do I want forged rims? Are NJ potholes a good enough excuse to justify the increase in price? I'll be comfortable financially either way, but I can't stomach wasteful spending

    Because baller? In this case, I can sell you the RG-R for the same price as the CH-R, which is nuts. Lighter wheels improve acceleration, handling and mpg. And they're super strong.

    I am, but I got the SQ5 4 days before the S6. That was in the beginning of your thread. Actually from your other thread, this picture and redheads plague me like Kryptonite.



    Loving the progress you are making with the S and the SQ buddy.

    That's funny. I suppose I'm doing my job correctly.

    Thanks! Loving this S3, and pumped to scoop the new SQ.
