Stuff I’ve said goodbye to:

Canon 7D – Great camera, fast burst rate, video@60fps, awesome focus system (compared to the 5D2). Unfortunately for it, it was time to join the full frame crowd. The burst on this camera was great for motorsport/action sports, which is something I miss on the 5d2.

Tokina 11-16 Fisheye – Awesome lens, Used it a lot when taking skating/sports photos – Not much use for anything else though. Very sharp, focus distance is insanely close.

Sigma 10-20 – My trusty wideangle for a long time – Upgraded for a Tokina which is 2.8 constant. Still, the lens served me very well and I’d recommend it to anyone wanting a wideangle on a crop body but doesn’t want to splash out on the Canon one.

Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS – Great Walkabout lens when you don’t want to carry a lot of gear around. Light weight and pretty sharp for such a lens.

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 – Beast. Awesome wideangle to get for 1.6x crop sensors. Does work at 15mm on full frame too.
