comment Why won't my new Canon Rebel T3i take a picture with the 18-55mm lens in autofocus mode?
did you hear the click it makes when the lens is completely fitted to the camera? also, i am not really sure, but maybe the camera wont take the picture if it's on AF mode and the lens can't focus (i.e. you're too close or too far)

comment How needed is the Image Stabilization on the Canon 70-200 f2.8 L USM lens?
hah. just read the letter to George, Hakon. It's actually wise. I was going to start with a Canon T3...and after following a friend's advice, I went with the T3i. I'm happy I did. I could buy the 2.8 L with IS...if I were not to buy the completely maxed out macbookpro with retina display. although after reading about their ghosting issues..i might just wait a few more months and end up getting the 2.8 L with IS....thanks.

comment How needed is the Image Stabilization on the Canon 70-200 f2.8 L USM lens?
thanks Hakon. I just want to make sure that if I get the 2.8 with no IS, that i can still shoot handheld pictures of my kid in the school's auditorium. What if weight is not a problem? I dont care if the f2.8 no IS is that much heavier or bigger..im just concerned about being able to shot without a tripod and still enjoy the 2.8 aperture. probably at the end of next year I will upgrade from whatever i get now (f4 IS or 2.8 no IS) to the 2.8 IS...but right now it's not a possibility. So..what do you suggest?

that's why I wanted to see if anyone had actually played with both the 2.8 no IS and the 4 IS...of course I'd love the extra aperture...I just want to make sure I could still take decent pictures even with no IS if I'm doing handheld.

comment Why would the Canon EF-S 55-250 IS II be cheaper than the first version?
so version II would actually be logically better (improved somehow), right? Also if you want to post your reply as an Answer instead of a comment, I can accept it Bart. Thanks!

comment What is the correct resting position for a camera with a long lens and a battery grip?
jrista, do you have a battery grip installed? what i wanted to know is, if there's a battery grip and the body is now taller, the lens is relatively long and when rested on at able, the weight of the lens falls on the hood tip, there might be pressure applied on the lens connection to the body because of the position. that is what i am concerned about. it only happens if you have a battery grip, cause it does make the camera considerably taller. without the grip, i agree with you there should be no problem.

comment What is the correct resting position for a camera with a long lens and a battery grip?
thanks jrista, but i'm talking in a resting position. say, if the camera is not being used and is resting on a table. what would be the right way for it to rest there?
