    Help mounting vintage lens to DLSR

    Hey guys! So I have a Canon EOS 1100D(Rebel T3) and was looking to mount a Helios 44-2 onto there - which outside of an adapter I can do, no problems. But as my 1100D(Rebel T3) is a crop sensor I wanted to get an focal reducer to make the most of the lens but I am struggling to find one - I'm new to this sort of...

    Canon EF-S 55-250 mm f/4-5.6 IS STM vs Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM White

    I really want a zoom lens for portraiture. I understand one is an L series lens but it has no IS on it (the ones with IS are way out of price range for me.) but the cheaper one has IS which one should I get? Thanks.

    Focus Breathing

    Hi there, Just come across the term focus breathing. Somebody told me a 70-200mm , 2.8 lens, that focus breathes is actually closer to a 150mm lens at the long end. My question is if I fully extend the lens to 200mm and focus on the subject in the distance, would that bring the lens back out...

    Canon 24-105 or Canon 24-70

    Hi All, I am looking at getting a new lens (I currently have nothing wide), and torn between the 24-105 F4 or 24-70 F2.8 Mk1. I will be purchasing these second hand. They come in roughly at the same price, so unsure why the 24-70 isn't that much more for that extra stop of light. In an ideal...
