Thanks, for the advice, I have both 5D Mk3 and 7D Mk2, I found that F4 hand held at night was a challenge and just felt I could do with a faster lens. Also would like to explore more with prime lenses.

Since you already have the 24, I would suggest the 20. I have one lens that does not accept filters and I have been able to work with it for many years. I hear you about the speed but, with today's cameras I'm wondering why an F4 isn't enough. Without additional information such as camera body and type of shooting you want to do, it's had to give any more advice. What is it that you need/want to do with your existing lens that it won't do for you? Best of luck.

I was thinking the same, purely as protection for the front element, but would be good to get views fro any owners of the 20mm.

If you have the filters that fit the 24 and it received equally well reviews compared to the 20, I don't think 4mm will make that much of a difference. I'd go with the 24 so I could use the filters. But that's me.

After returning from my trip to NYC, I am debating getting either the Sigma 20mm or 24mm f/1.4 prime (B+H was shut whilst in NYC) after finding my Canon 24-70mm f/4 wasn't great with low light shots, despite the IS. I have read numerous reviews as we all do but struggling to decide between the two, i.e either the wider 20mm but not able to take filter for lens protection/Polariser/ Grad filter, against narrower 24mm, which has the ability to accept filters.
I would be grateful for any comments from owners of either lens with their opinion, or suggestions.
Thanks.. Richard

It was a shame we couldn't get to visit B+H, but probably saved me some money as intended to look at a few prime lenses.. never mind with current state of UK £ the price difference between UK and US isn't that great at moment. The weather was good anyway lol.

That's a long way to travel, only to find the stores closed. At least you got to take some great pictures.

When you come next time, contact Herschel at B&H, and he'll arrange a tour.

Thanks, Just hand held with 24-70mm and stood opposite the intersection.... lucky with the timing!

Super photos, of a super city. I gotta know how you made that shot of the traffic on 6th ave. (no native of the city will ever callit Avenue of the Americas). I'm guessing you had to be in some kind of vehicle. Amazingly sharp-had to be hand held. Can't stand in the middle of the intersection and live to tell about it.

A few shots taken whilst in New York last weekend. Great time with only disappointment that both B+H and Adorama were both closed due to holidays. Highlight was the Top of the Rock, which I would recommend to all, queues way shorter than Empire State Building and whole experience far better!

Once again thanks for all your posts. Photography is a totally subjective art form so any positive critique is greatly appreciated.

There you go, I though B+w captured the mood better than colour as the light wasn't great at that time of day.

Love the 1st shot with the castle and the ship. You have got to repost the 2nd one in color. It would be so cool!

Thanks, it is a stunning country, but you have to have a little luck with the weather.

Nice photos, I'm jealous...
My fathers family was originally from the island of Lewis. Someday I'd like to tour the country of my ancestors.

Thank you.

I can usually pick out a favorite shot, however, I am hard pressed to choose only one since all your shots are very good. Compositions and execution are wonderful in your shots.

Eilean Donan Castle, close to Isle of Skye and Glen Sheil. Great location and has been used for numerous film locations.

Next time leave some space in your carry on.

Well captured.

I agree the 24-105mm is interesting and could be a good replacement for the 24-70mm f/4.

I would consider the Mk IV, if it's capabilities allow me to sell my 6D and 7DII. I'm not going to rush out to be the first to buy it though. I'll wait for the user reviews to come in and for the holiday season to roll around to see if any deals show up. The EF 24-105 L II that is going to be announced is interesting also. I could sell my 24-70 f/4 L and my current 24-105 f/4 L and replace them with a lens with the IQ of my 24-70 (hopefully) while still having a very handy focal range.

I have seriously considered a new 5D Mk4 when it it available, but beginning to think that getting a 7D Mk2 plus 100-400mm Mk2 for same money would compliment my existing 5D Mk3.
