For far too many Christians, life is little more than a series of mishaps, defeats and disappointments. Indeed, life can be difficult (Rom. 5:3), but it was never meant to be the hopeless grind and empty existence that many believers endure. To be sure, God has endeavored to take us on a journey-a magnificent journey; from hopelessness to hope, from emptiness to fulfillment, from worry to peace, from failure to victory, from regrets about the past to anticipation about the future, from resentment to acceptance, from darkness to light. Would you like to go? Well, you'll need a passport. The Passport to Life is a guidebook for exploring God's Word. It is the printed version of France Brown's life changing class on Transformational Bible Study using the skills of observation, interpretation and application. Here, he draws on decades of teaching youth and adults around the world how to interpret Scripture and how to apply biblical truth to every life situation. In this step-by-step workbook, you will be guided with tips, tools and techniques that will empower you to think biblically for yourself, to nurture your own spiritual growth and to guard yourself against false teaching and false ideas. In short it will bless you immeasurably. You will live with stronger faith, greater hope and a deeper love for God, for others and for yourself (Mark 12:30-31). What people are saying about Passport to Life: As a result of learning these methods and techniques, I now feel equipped for service in Christ. Scripture no longer reads like a foreign language but like a favorite book that I not only understand but love. -R. Gensheimer If you are ready to be equipped with the right tools to combat Satan, this is the Full Metal Jacket -J. Eaglin This is a must for any believer -V. Pena

The Securitization of Migration and Refugee Women

Humanised accounts of restrictions on mobility are rarely the focus of debates on irregular migration. Very little is heard from refugees themselves about why they migrate, their experiences whilst entering the EU or how they navigate reception conditions upon arrival, particularly from a gendered perspective. The Securitization of Migration and Refugee Women fills this gap and explores the journey made by refugee women who have travelled from Somalia to the EU to seek asylum. This book reveals the humanised impact of the securitization of migration, the dominant policy response to irregular migration pursued by governments across the Globe. The Southern EU Member State of Malta finds itself on the frontline of policing and securing Europe;s southern external borders against transnational migrants and preventing migrants; on-migration to other Member States within the EU. The securitization of migration has been responsible for restricting access to asylum, diluting rights and entitlements to refugee protection, and punishing those who arrive in the EU without valid passports -a visibly racialised and gendered population. The stories of the refugee women interviewed for this research detail the ways in which refugee protection is being eroded, selectively applied and in some cases specifically designed to exclude. In contrast to the majority of migration literature, which has largely focused on the male experience, this book focuses on the experiences of refugee women and aims to contribute to the volume of work dedicated to analysing borders from the perspective of those who cross them. This research strengthens existing criminological literature and has the potential to offer insights to policy makers around the world. It will be of interest to academics and students interested in International Crime and Justice, Securitisation, Refugee Law and Border Control, as well as the general reader.

What happens when you receive a piece of information that changes your life? Mum's the Word is not just one way to react, but also a 40,000-word memoir that takes you through how the author handled such news. Suspense builds as a story of family secrets, unknown adoption, and an amazing search to find answers, the real truth, unfolds. This journey reveals the complexities of love, relationships, and coming to terms with unexpected life events. Within these pages is a true story of uncertainty, joy, pain, and faith in overcoming obstacles in order to make miraculous connections. Mum's The Word exposes what had largely been a quest in silence. After 30 years, a secret is revealed while applying for a passport to attend, of all things, a family reunion. A birth certificate request sent to London results in a document stamped certificate of adoption.

Your Soul Remembers is proof positive that answers to questions about your past lives are at the tip of your finger. Author and past-life specialist, Joanne DiMaggio, conducted a groundbreaking research project, combining past-life regression and a form of inspirational writing she calls Soul Writing. With the help of fifty volunteers, ranging in age from 23 to 81, Joanne regressed each to the past life that was having the most impact on them now. After the regression but while they were still in an altered state of consciousness she placed a pen in their hand and a journal on their lap and instructed them to ask their soul for information about that lifetime that eluded them in the regression. While they wrote, she also wrote, asking her Source for information she could share. The results were astonishing. Starting in the first century and ending in the recent past, Your Soul Remembers is a veritable past-life passport that takes you to countries across the planet from obscure hamlets to desolate fortresses, from the quiet English countryside to the wild, wild American west. History comes alive as you read firsthand accounts of what it was like to experience the destruction of Pompeii; persecution in Tudor England; abduction during the Holocaust, and how those experiences still are affecting lives today. Your Soul Remembers includes fascinating accounts of clusters of soul groups who came forward with similar stories; of spontaneous healings after discovering the origin of a physical karma; of recognition of individuals today who played a similar role in the past. It is said all answers lie within. Every thought, word, and deed from previous lifetimes is recorded and stored in your soul, making it accessible to you at any time. Through soul writing you can apply this transformative technique to your own life, and begin an ongoing dialogue with your soul to uncover and resolve the issues that may be plaguing you today.

  5 Lenses You Must Have for Nikon D7000 (or D300S)  

5 Lenses You Must Have for Nikon D7000 (or D300S)
by Raphael Chieza


Last week, I wrote an article about 5 lenses which you must have for the Canon 7D and from the some of the comments we've received, there seems to be a great interest for me to cover the 5 lenses you must have for a Nikon D7000 as well. So with the kit lens quickly put on the second hand market, here we go with our lens selection. Keep in mind that as the D300S is also a DX format body like the D7000, the lenses selected will be valid for the D300S as well.

 

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G Prime Selection - Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G

It will come as no surprise to anyone to see the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G in the selection. This beautiful walk around lens on a full frame body turns into a lovely portrait lens with the 1.5x crop factor on the DX format body. There is of course the cheaper Nikon Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.4D also available for consideration but I am sure you will find that the G lens is worth the extra money. There will be some of you who feel that the upcoming Nikon Nikkor AF-S 35mm F1.4G should also be included but given that I am only selecting 5 lenses, I will be depending on my choice of the standard zoom to cover the 50mm equivalent focal length.

 

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VRThe Standard Zoom - Nikon Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR

If you have read my earlier article on the Canon selection for the 7D, you will no doubt expect me to choose the Nikon Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom for its ideal coverage of the standard range of focal lengths. However, as much as it's a lovely lens, I find its price a bit too steep for a DX lens even for its amazing performance and had to choose the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR. The addition of VR in the 16-35mm also helped make the choice. Since most of my shooting in this range is done hands free, I find that vibration reduction to be something which is highly preferable even though most shooting in this range does not need it so much. The limited focal range means that anything over 35mm (52.5mm in 35mm equivalent) and less than 70mm (105 in 35mm equivalent and the focal length of the next selection) will have to be taken on by the 50mm prime though. Of course, if you can afford to splash out, either the 17-55mm DX lens mentioned above or better still getting both the Nikon Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S Zoom and the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED could be options.

 

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR IIThe Telephoto Zoom - Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II

This choice is really a no brainer. The Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II and its predecessors and smaller aperture brethrens are the most popular zoom for both DX and FX bodies alike. With a large aperture of f/2.8, you can use teleconverters without suffering much from the 2-stop penalty, especially if you choose a good one like the Nikon TC-20E III Teleconverter. Of course, you are also benefitting from the new VR II technology from Nikon which offers better performance.

 

 

Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX ZoomThe Wide-angle Zoom - Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom

With DX format bodies, there is really no choice than a DX lens if you want to achieve proper wide-angle focal lengths. In the Nikon range of lenses, the best option has got to be the Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom. The lens delivers a satisfactory wide-angle range of 18-36mm in the 35mm equivalent and while the focal length is not the widest option, it is certainly the best for the job. The alternative would be the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED but the image quality would be inferior.

 

The Super Telephoto Zoom - Don't bother...

To be honest, if money was no object, I would definitely pick the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 200-400mm F4G ED VR II as the lens of choice but given the high cost of the lens, it has got to be considered a luxury option unless you have a highly specialized use and don't mind the weight of this beauty. However, lesser mortals like myself will most likely content with the Nikon Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF Zoom. However, if you consider the significant overlap with the 70-200 and teleconverter combination, you may be tempted to ask yourself why bother with it? Of course, this is given that you have the 70-200mm lens I mentioned above?

 

Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR MicroThe Macro Prime - Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro

The best macro lens from the Nikon range has got to be the Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro. Don't get me wrong the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX Micro 85mm f/3.5G ED VR is a very good option for the DX body but the 105mm just offers more in terms of both short term performance and long term possibilities (as in if you wish to shoot with a FX body as well in the future). If you are into shooting the creepy crawlies around your garden than the 105mm stands out even more?try it and you will love it.

 

Why just Nikon lenses??

Some of you may question whether third-party manufacturers may offer additional options and I will provide some answers in a follow up article to give both Canon and Nikon users of cropped sensor bodies some extra options such as Sigma, Tokina and Tamron. For those who don't mind trading the autofocus feature for better image quality, there are some really nice lenses out there from manufacturers like Carl Zeiss, Leica and Voigtlander. Stay tuned for the follow up article and do comment on this article's selection as well as what you would like included (whatever the brand).

5 Lenses You Must Have for Canon EOS 7D

5 Lenses You Must Have for Canon EOS 7D
by Raphael Chieza

If you've got a Canon EOS 7D, you've either got the body only version or one of the 3 lens kits with either the EF-S 15-85mm lens, the EF-S 18-135mm lens or the EF 28-135mm lens. They are all decent options but you have to be honest that kit lenses are just not on the same par as most of the lenses you have to purchase separately. I will make one exception with that being the 24-105mm L lens that is sold with the Canon 5D Mark II but let's digress. Our pick for the 5 lenses you must have is balanced between quality and budget. Look to the end of you want to know what to get regardless of price.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM LensPrime Factor - Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens

There is no doubt that every photographer worth his salt will have at least one prime lens and the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens is definitely one which you must have. With an APS-C sensor where the 35mm equivalent would set it to 80mm, this lens is extremely useful for portraiture photography as well as situations where a fast lens would be required such as indoor, low-light photography.

Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USMThe Standard Zoom - Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM

While at first look, the price tag may be high for this non-L lens but the quality of the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM is definitely as good as any L lens that you can buy. Considering the focal length when used with the Canon 7D and you will be getting the equivalent of roughly 27-88mm. This is pretty much (and a bit more of) the focal length of using the 24-70mm f/2.8 L with a full frame body. The barrel of the lens may not have the L lens finish but for the price difference (from say a 16-35mm f/2.8) and the quality the lens can deliver, we think it's a good buy.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM LensThe Telephoto Zoom - Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens

The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens may be the priciest lens from this selection but it is definitely worth every penny. Using the latest image stabilization technology from Canon, this lens takes on the mantle of most popular telephoto zoom from its predecessor with full aplomb. Great for a lot of different shooting scenarios and even with the crop factor, it still allows you to take great portrait shots. With its large aperture, you can afford to lose 2 stops of light for the extra reach when used with a 1.4x/2x teleconverter especially when the IS of the lens is supposed to give you a 4-stop advantage.

Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM LensThe Wide-angle Zoom - Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens

With a full frame sensor, you could use the 16-35mm f/2.8 to capture wide-angle shots but with a crop sensor camera, getting wide-angle shots is only possible from a much more limited range of lenses. The Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens is really the only Canon zoom lens up to the job. While the aperture may not be as very wide, it does deliver solid performance that makes it a necessary inclusion in your camera bag should the need for wide-angle shooting arise.

Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USMThe Super Telephoto Zoom - Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM

While a ultra telephoto prime can give you more in ways of image quality as well as maximum aperture, shooting wildlife may call for a bit of flexibility with a zoom lens. This is especially true if you can't move from your position to recompose at a further or nearer position. The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM combines image quality and flexibility neatly into one package to satisfy your creative freedom.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
Alternative to the Super Telephoto: The Macro Prime - Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

We understand that the final choice of the list may not appeal to everyone. After all, the 320mm equivalent reach of the 70-200mm is not too shabby for most general situations. The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is a top notch macro lens which delivers excellent sharpness. An L lens which delivers better image quality than its non-L counterpart as well as image stabilization for handheld shooting. This lens allows you to shoot within the studio on a tripod or out in the field handheld.


If money was no object? Try the "Best 7" Instead

Well, while the above lenses are my top choices to have with the Canon EOS 7D, I would go with the following lenses if I didn't have to worry about my bank balances:

Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM instead of the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens because the image quality of the L lens is much better while the larger aperture allows you to go just that little be faster.

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM instead of Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM because no matter how good the 17-55mm, there is an allure to being the proud owner of the "Big 3 Zoom" from Canon. You may need to use 2 lens for segments of the standard range but the images will tell if you use them right.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM instead of? instead of what? Sorry, this is still the best! Non-negotiable and definitely what you want to see.

Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is the same story. As I've said, to get these wide-angle focal lengths from a cropped sensor DSLR, there really are no alternate choices unless you go to third-party brands. Mind you, if you ever move on to shooting full-frame, this lens will become redundant just like the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM.

The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM and Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM remain great choices for Super Telephoto and Macro shooting respectively and so would definitely earn a place in my must have collection.

How The USDA Grades Your Steak

Making The Grade: The USDA And Your Steak

For steak lovers, suppliers, and farmers alike, the USDA’s grading system is the holy standard for all things beef, from ribeye to New York strip. 

But for those unfamiliar with how the USDA grades beef, the different grades and what they mean can be somewhat mystifying. It doesn’t help that certain restaurants, supermarkets, and suppliers are doing their best to confuse you so they can serve you inferior steaks.

To make sure you’re getting the best steak possible, it’s important that you understand how the USDA’s system works. With this guide, you’ll learn about the different grades of beef, including Prime, Choice, and Select. You’ll also learn what the USDA looks for when judging cattle, and why marblingand age are so important to quality cuts.

What To Look For And Why

When purchasing steaks, always look for the USDA shield.

Crafty restaurants, supermarkets, and wholesalers might say that they use their own, in-house ratings, or will call their steaks “prime” cuts, without using USDA certification. The best way to avoid getting cheated on your steak is to look for the USDA seal.

For restaurants: Ask for the USDA rating. If your server skirts the topic, that’s a warning sign.

For supermarkets and wholesalers: Look for the USDA seal. If you cannot find it (it might be on the bottom of the package), the meat is not USDA certified.

The Upper Cuts: Prime, Choice, and Select

The USDA has eight grades for beef, but you will probably find only three labelled grades at your local supermarket or butcher shop. These are Prime, Choice, and Select.

USDA PRIME is reserved for the best cuts of beef. Just 3% of steaks get labelled Prime. Steaks of this grade are quickly bought by five-star restaurants and upscale wholesalers. Because of this, Prime steaks are rarely found in supermarkets or grocery stores. Prime cuts are sourced from younger steers, and are abundant in marbling and reddish-pink in color. They are the most tender, juicy, and flavorful steaks on the market.

USDA CHOICE is the step below Prime. USDA Choice cuts are available in most grocery stores and medium-priced restaurants. A Choice steak often has the same reddish-pink color of a Prime cut, but lacks the same level of marbling. The amount of marbling found in Choice cuts can vary widely. It is wise to inspect a Choice steak to see how much marbling it contains. Depending on the cut, a Choice steak may require slower cooking or a marinade to bring out its tenderness and flavor.

USDA SELECT steaks sit at the lower end of the quality cuts. Because of the low level of marbling found in Select cuts, they usually require marinating. Salt-rich or acidic sauces/marinades can also help tenderize Select steaks, as salt and acids soften and help to break down tougher tissues. Select steaks also benefit from longer cooking times at lower temperatures.

Grading Criteria: What Makes A Great Steak

USDA grades are based on what makes a steak as tender, juicy, and flavorful as possible. There are two main criteria that help graders determine which cattle produce the best beef.

Marbling, also known as “intra-muscular fat,” is the most prized feature in steaks. Marbling is characterized by thin streaks of fat between muscle tissue. When cooked, the fat melts. This gives the meat unparalleled tenderness and a rich, buttery flavor.

Age is another important factor in steak quality. Younger steaks are more tender and flavorful than older cuts of meat. Because of this, most Prime and Choice steaks come from steers 1 to 3 years in age. Steak age is usually determined by the color of the meat, as steaks turn a deeper, darker color as they age.

The “Other” Grades

There are five other grades of beef used by the USDA.

The two medium grades – Standard and Commercial – result in lower quality cuts. For steaks, these cuts are usually left unlabelled, or get turned into ground beef. Many stores will sell unlabelled Standard or Commercial grade steaks under in-house labels, which is why it’s so important to keep an eye out for the USDA seal.

Cattle that receive one of the lowest three grades – Utility, Cutter, and Canner – are used for cheaper ground beef, hot dogs, or pet food. Luckily, steaks of this grade are rarely (if ever) sold by grocery stores, butchers, or wholesalers.

Any of the five lower grades should be avoided when purchasing steaks.

Prime Time: Grill Meets Grade

Now that you know how to find the best steaks, it’s time to put knowledge to practice. With a firm grasp of the USDA grading system, you’ll be able to find a wholesaler, butcher, or grocery store you can trust to deliver high-quality cuts. And remember: grade-A steaks deserve grade-A grillers and recipes.

Nikon D800 vs. Nikon D4 - Which one to buy?

  5 Lenses You Must Have for Nikon D7000 (or D300S)  

5 Lenses You Must Have for Nikon D7000 (or D300S)
by Raphael Chieza


Last week, I wrote an article about 5 lenses which you must have for the Canon 7D and from the some of the comments we've received, there seems to be a great interest for me to cover the 5 lenses you must have for a Nikon D7000 as well. So with the kit lens quickly put on the second hand market, here we go with our lens selection. Keep in mind that as the D300S is also a DX format body like the D7000, the lenses selected will be valid for the D300S as well.

 

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G Prime Selection - Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G

It will come as no surprise to anyone to see the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G in the selection. This beautiful walk around lens on a full frame body turns into a lovely portrait lens with the 1.5x crop factor on the DX format body. There is of course the cheaper Nikon Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.4D also available for consideration but I am sure you will find that the G lens is worth the extra money. There will be some of you who feel that the upcoming Nikon Nikkor AF-S 35mm F1.4G should also be included but given that I am only selecting 5 lenses, I will be depending on my choice of the standard zoom to cover the 50mm equivalent focal length.

 

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VRThe Standard Zoom - Nikon Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR

If you have read my earlier article on the Canon selection for the 7D, you will no doubt expect me to choose the Nikon Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom for its ideal coverage of the standard range of focal lengths. However, as much as it's a lovely lens, I find its price a bit too steep for a DX lens even for its amazing performance and had to choose the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR. The addition of VR in the 16-35mm also helped make the choice. Since most of my shooting in this range is done hands free, I find that vibration reduction to be something which is highly preferable even though most shooting in this range does not need it so much. The limited focal range means that anything over 35mm (52.5mm in 35mm equivalent) and less than 70mm (105 in 35mm equivalent and the focal length of the next selection) will have to be taken on by the 50mm prime though. Of course, if you can afford to splash out, either the 17-55mm DX lens mentioned above or better still getting both the Nikon Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S Zoom and the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED could be options.

 

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR IIThe Telephoto Zoom - Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II

This choice is really a no brainer. The Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II and its predecessors and smaller aperture brethrens are the most popular zoom for both DX and FX bodies alike. With a large aperture of f/2.8, you can use teleconverters without suffering much from the 2-stop penalty, especially if you choose a good one like the Nikon TC-20E III Teleconverter. Of course, you are also benefitting from the new VR II technology from Nikon which offers better performance.

 

 

Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX ZoomThe Wide-angle Zoom - Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom

With DX format bodies, there is really no choice than a DX lens if you want to achieve proper wide-angle focal lengths. In the Nikon range of lenses, the best option has got to be the Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom. The lens delivers a satisfactory wide-angle range of 18-36mm in the 35mm equivalent and while the focal length is not the widest option, it is certainly the best for the job. The alternative would be the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED but the image quality would be inferior.

 

The Super Telephoto Zoom - Don't bother...

To be honest, if money was no object, I would definitely pick the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 200-400mm F4G ED VR II as the lens of choice but given the high cost of the lens, it has got to be considered a luxury option unless you have a highly specialized use and don't mind the weight of this beauty. However, lesser mortals like myself will most likely content with the Nikon Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF Zoom. However, if you consider the significant overlap with the 70-200 and teleconverter combination, you may be tempted to ask yourself why bother with it? Of course, this is given that you have the 70-200mm lens I mentioned above?

 

Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR MicroThe Macro Prime - Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro

The best macro lens from the Nikon range has got to be the Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro. Don't get me wrong the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX Micro 85mm f/3.5G ED VR is a very good option for the DX body but the 105mm just offers more in terms of both short term performance and long term possibilities (as in if you wish to shoot with a FX body as well in the future). If you are into shooting the creepy crawlies around your garden than the 105mm stands out even more?try it and you will love it.

 

Why just Nikon lenses??

Some of you may question whether third-party manufacturers may offer additional options and I will provide some answers in a follow up article to give both Canon and Nikon users of cropped sensor bodies some extra options such as Sigma, Tokina and Tamron. For those who don't mind trading the autofocus feature for better image quality, there are some really nice lenses out there from manufacturers like Carl Zeiss, Leica and Voigtlander. Stay tuned for the follow up article and do comment on this article's selection as well as what you would like included (whatever the brand).

5 Lenses You Must Have for Canon EOS 7D

If you've got a Canon EOS 7D, you've either got the body only version or one of the 3 lens kits with either the EF-S 15-85mm lens, the EF-S 18-135mm lens or the EF 28-135mm lens.

Of course, you are also benefitting from the new VR II technology from Nikon which offers better performance.

 

 

Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX ZoomThe Wide-angle Zoom - Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom

With DX format bodies, there is really no choice than a DX lens if you want to achieve proper wide-angle focal lengths. In the Nikon range of lenses, the best option has got to be the Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom. The lens delivers a satisfactory wide-angle range of 18-36mm in the 35mm equivalent and while the focal length is not the widest option, it is certainly the best for the job. The alternative would be the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED but the image quality would be inferior.

 

The Super Telephoto Zoom - Don't bother...

To be honest, if money was no object, I would definitely pick the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 200-400mm F4G ED VR II as the lens of choice but given the high cost of the lens, it has got to be considered a luxury option unless you have a highly specialized use and don't mind the weight of this beauty. However, lesser mortals like myself will most likely content with the Nikon Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF Zoom. However, if you consider the significant overlap with the 70-200 and teleconverter combination, you may be tempted to ask yourself why bother with it? Of course, this is given that you have the 70-200mm lens I mentioned above?

 

Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR MicroThe Macro Prime - Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro

The best macro lens from the Nikon range has got to be the Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro. Don't get me wrong the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX Micro 85mm f/3.5G ED VR is a very good option for the DX body but the 105mm just offers more in terms of both short term performance and long term possibilities (as in if you wish to shoot with a FX body as well in the future). If you are into shooting the creepy crawlies around your garden than the 105mm stands out even more?try it and you will love it.

 

Why just Nikon lenses??

Some of you may question whether third-party manufacturers may offer additional options and I will provide some answers in a follow up article to give both Canon and Nikon users of cropped sensor bodies some extra options such as Sigma, Tokina and Tamron. For those who don't mind trading the autofocus feature for better image quality, there are some really nice lenses out there from manufacturers like Carl Zeiss, Leica and Voigtlander. Stay tuned for the follow up article and do comment on this article's selection as well as what you would like included (whatever the brand).

5 Lenses You Must Have for Canon EOS 7D

5 Lenses You Must Have for Canon EOS 7D
by Raphael Chieza

If you've got a Canon EOS 7D, you've either got the body only version or one of the 3 lens kits with either the EF-S 15-85mm lens, the EF-S 18-135mm lens or the EF 28-135mm lens. They are all decent options but you have to be honest that kit lenses are just not on the same par as most of the lenses you have to purchase separately. I will make one exception with that being the 24-105mm L lens that is sold with the Canon 5D Mark II but let's digress. Our pick for the 5 lenses you must have is balanced between quality and budget. Look to the end of you want to know what to get regardless of price.

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM LensPrime Factor - Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens

There is no doubt that every photographer worth his salt will have at least one prime lens and the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens is definitely one which you must have. With an APS-C sensor where the 35mm equivalent would set it to 80mm, this lens is extremely useful for portraiture photography as well as situations where a fast lens would be required such as indoor, low-light photography.

Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USMThe Standard Zoom - Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM

While at first look, the price tag may be high for this non-L lens but the quality of the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM is definitely as good as any L lens that you can buy. Considering the focal length when used with the Canon 7D and you will be getting the equivalent of roughly 27-88mm. This is pretty much (and a bit more of) the focal length of using the 24-70mm f/2.8 L with a full frame body. The barrel of the lens may not have the L lens finish but for the price difference (from say a 16-35mm f/2.8) and the quality the lens can deliver, we think it's a good buy.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM LensThe Telephoto Zoom - Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens

The Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens may be the priciest lens from this selection but it is definitely worth every penny. Using the latest image stabilization technology from Canon, this lens takes on the mantle of most popular telephoto zoom from its predecessor with full aplomb. Great for a lot of different shooting scenarios and even with the crop factor, it still allows you to take great portrait shots. With its large aperture, you can afford to lose 2 stops of light for the extra reach when used with a 1.4x/2x teleconverter especially when the IS of the lens is supposed to give you a 4-stop advantage.

Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM LensThe Wide-angle Zoom - Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens

With a full frame sensor, you could use the 16-35mm f/2.8 to capture wide-angle shots but with a crop sensor camera, getting wide-angle shots is only possible from a much more limited range of lenses. The Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens is really the only Canon zoom lens up to the job. While the aperture may not be as very wide, it does deliver solid performance that makes it a necessary inclusion in your camera bag should the need for wide-angle shooting arise.

Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USMThe Super Telephoto Zoom - Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM

While a ultra telephoto prime can give you more in ways of image quality as well as maximum aperture, shooting wildlife may call for a bit of flexibility with a zoom lens. This is especially true if you can't move from your position to recompose at a further or nearer position. The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM combines image quality and flexibility neatly into one package to satisfy your creative freedom.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
Alternative to the Super Telephoto: The Macro Prime - Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

We understand that the final choice of the list may not appeal to everyone. After all, the 320mm equivalent reach of the 70-200mm is not too shabby for most general situations. The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is a top notch macro lens which delivers excellent sharpness. An L lens which delivers better image quality than its non-L counterpart as well as image stabilization for handheld shooting. This lens allows you to shoot within the studio on a tripod or out in the field handheld.


If money was no object? Try the "Best 7" Instead

Well, while the above lenses are my top choices to have with the Canon EOS 7D, I would go with the following lenses if I didn't have to worry about my bank balances:

Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM instead of the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens because the image quality of the L lens is much better while the larger aperture allows you to go just that little be faster.

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM instead of Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM because no matter how good the 17-55mm, there is an allure to being the proud owner of the "Big 3 Zoom" from Canon. You may need to use 2 lens for segments of the standard range but the images will tell if you use them right.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM instead of? instead of what? Sorry, this is still the best! Non-negotiable and definitely what you want to see.

Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is the same story. As I've said, to get these wide-angle focal lengths from a cropped sensor DSLR, there really are no alternate choices unless you go to third-party brands. Mind you, if you ever move on to shooting full-frame, this lens will become redundant just like the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM.

The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM and Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM remain great choices for Super Telephoto and Macro shooting respectively and so would definitely earn a place in my must have collection.

Nikon D800 vs. Nikon D4 - Which one to buy?

  5 Lenses You Must Have for Nikon D7000 (or D300S)  

5 Lenses You Must Have for Nikon D7000 (or D300S)
by Raphael Chieza


Last week, I wrote an article about 5 lenses which you must have for the Canon 7D and from the some of the comments we've received, there seems to be a great interest for me to cover the 5 lenses you must have for a Nikon D7000 as well. So with the kit lens quickly put on the second hand market, here we go with our lens selection. Keep in mind that as the D300S is also a DX format body like the D7000, the lenses selected will be valid for the D300S as well.

 

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G Prime Selection - Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G

It will come as no surprise to anyone to see the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G in the selection. This beautiful walk around lens on a full frame body turns into a lovely portrait lens with the 1.5x crop factor on the DX format body. There is of course the cheaper Nikon Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.4D also available for consideration but I am sure you will find that the G lens is worth the extra money. There will be some of you who feel that the upcoming Nikon Nikkor AF-S 35mm F1.4G should also be included but given that I am only selecting 5 lenses, I will be depending on my choice of the standard zoom to cover the 50mm equivalent focal length.

 

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VRThe Standard Zoom - Nikon Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR

If you have read my earlier article on the Canon selection for the 7D, you will no doubt expect me to choose the Nikon Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom for its ideal coverage of the standard range of focal lengths. However, as much as it's a lovely lens, I find its price a bit too steep for a DX lens even for its amazing performance and had to choose the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR. The addition of VR in the 16-35mm also helped make the choice. Since most of my shooting in this range is done hands free, I find that vibration reduction to be something which is highly preferable even though most shooting in this range does not need it so much. The limited focal range means that anything over 35mm (52.5mm in 35mm equivalent) and less than 70mm (105 in 35mm equivalent and the focal length of the next selection) will have to be taken on by the 50mm prime though. Of course, if you can afford to splash out, either the 17-55mm DX lens mentioned above or better still getting both the Nikon Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S Zoom and the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8G ED could be options.

 

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR IIThe Telephoto Zoom - Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II

This choice is really a no brainer. The Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II and its predecessors and smaller aperture brethrens are the most popular zoom for both DX and FX bodies alike. With a large aperture of f/2.8, you can use teleconverters without suffering much from the 2-stop penalty, especially if you choose a good one like the Nikon TC-20E III Teleconverter. Of course, you are also benefitting from the new VR II technology from Nikon which offers better performance.

 

 

Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX ZoomThe Wide-angle Zoom - Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom

With DX format bodies, there is really no choice than a DX lens if you want to achieve proper wide-angle focal lengths. In the Nikon range of lenses, the best option has got to be the Nikon Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom. The lens delivers a satisfactory wide-angle range of 18-36mm in the 35mm equivalent and while the focal length is not the widest option, it is certainly the best for the job. The alternative would be the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED but the image quality would be inferior.

 

The Super Telephoto Zoom - Don't bother...

To be honest, if money was no object, I would definitely pick the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 200-400mm F4G ED VR II as the lens of choice but given the high cost of the lens, it has got to be considered a luxury option unless you have a highly specialized use and don't mind the weight of this beauty. However, lesser mortals like myself will most likely content with the Nikon Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR AF Zoom. However, if you consider the significant overlap with the 70-200 and teleconverter combination, you may be tempted to ask yourself why bother with it? Of course, this is given that you have the 70-200mm lens I mentioned above?

 

Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR MicroThe Macro Prime - Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro

The best macro lens from the Nikon range has got to be the Nikon Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G AF-S VR Micro. Don't get me wrong the Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX Micro 85mm f/3.5G ED VR is a very good option for the DX body but the 105mm just offers more in terms of both short term performance and long term possibilities (as in if you wish to shoot with a FX body as well in the future).

5 Lenses You Must Have for Canon EOS 7D

5 Lenses You Must Have for Canon EOS 7D
by Raphael Chieza

If you've got a Canon EOS 7D, you've either got the body only version or one of the 3 lens kits with either the EF-S 15-85mm lens, the EF-S 18-135mm lens or the EF 28-135mm lens.

We understand that the final choice of the list may not appeal to everyone. After all, the 320mm equivalent reach of the 70-200mm is not too shabby for most general situations. The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM is a top notch macro lens which delivers excellent sharpness. An L lens which delivers better image quality than its non-L counterpart as well as image stabilization for handheld shooting. This lens allows you to shoot within the studio on a tripod or out in the field handheld.


If money was no object? Try the "Best 7" Instead

Well, while the above lenses are my top choices to have with the Canon EOS 7D, I would go with the following lenses if I didn't have to worry about my bank balances:

Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM instead of the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens because the image quality of the L lens is much better while the larger aperture allows you to go just that little be faster.

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM and Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM instead of Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM because no matter how good the 17-55mm, there is an allure to being the proud owner of the "Big 3 Zoom" from Canon. You may need to use 2 lens for segments of the standard range but the images will tell if you use them right.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM instead of? instead of what? Sorry, this is still the best! Non-negotiable and definitely what you want to see.

Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM is the same story. As I've said, to get these wide-angle focal lengths from a cropped sensor DSLR, there really are no alternate choices unless you go to third-party brands. Mind you, if you ever move on to shooting full-frame, this lens will become redundant just like the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM.

The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM and Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM remain great choices for Super Telephoto and Macro shooting respectively and so would definitely earn a place in my must have collection.
