Lenses / Re: Canon 300mm f2.8is II with 2.0x teleconverter III
« on: April 14, 2014, 02:44:03 PM »
For me the 300 with the 2 x extender is a perfect combination, yes it is slightly slower attaining focus and there is a little image quality loss but you gain so much more. The 300f2.8 mk11 is probably Canons sharpest telephoto lens, hook it up to the new extenders and you have a very versatile lens combination.
I recently posted the Robin image, the first one with no crop, the second image is cropped from the original. Make up your own mind.

Well  I tought I contribute here something too :)
I'm kinda new to this forum, but I love it already!
Personally I shoot models, but I go often to the zoo.

Here are some of my shots :
Great images, the zoo can offer plenty of photo opportunities.

Surely the contract is with the original pro photographer, his price would have included the shoot as well as providing a specific number of images with any additional photographs charged for separately. I would find it hard to believe there are no images that the bride would not find acceptable.
The bride should pay the original photographer for the contracted work, providing of course they are not sub standard.  There would be no obligation for the bride to buy any additional images from the pro photographer leaving the guest photographer to supply photos to the bride at whatever cost is agreed.
Remember you asked for a favour and got invited to assist the pro at the wedding, he thought he was helping you. Never look a gift horse in the mouth.

Congratulations on your purchase, it is one heck of a lens. You have got to get the 1.4 and 2 x extender Mk111, this will give you a superb 420mm focal length, there is really little quality loss with this combination and the 2 x extender will give you a 600mm which can produce outstanding images is the right conditions.
I would also get some sort of lens cover in the UK I use Outdoor photography gear, this has already been mentioned, quality of neoprene is very good. This will protect your valuable equipment.
In terms of bags I use Kata Bug 205, very well made and light. Can get all my equipment in this.
enjoy your purchase.
