Canon General / Re: Spartans, What is your profession?

I am a self-employed advisor with main focus on operational excellence. I help (advice, implement, optimize) organizations with the implementation and management of transition and operation processes. Goal is to improve the reliability of delivery of services, the relationship with customers and empowering employees.
This leaves me with less time for photography as I wished for (also since I am gratefully busy with my 2 children)
However I booked some days in a hiding hut for bird photography, managed to sign-up to some different kind of workshops and will be again on a photography trip to the Middle East - next to my spare time of going out in the field every moment I can find.

Lenses / Re: 16-35 f/4L IS with EF 35 f/2 IS
« on: February 25, 2015, 10:36:05 AM »
It totally depends on your needs.
I used the 35 f/2 IS for indoor photography of ice sculptures at 800 ISO. With the 16-35 the ISO would be higher though it is not really a big issue for a 6D but if you like to keep ISO low...

Lenses / Re: Introducing the Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II
« on: February 25, 2015, 01:29:11 AM »
It is a wonderful lens. Though vignetting is more present than the 70-300L but not so much to worry about. I also noticed that the IS is more noisy than with the 70-300L. Did anyone (who owned the 70-300L) noticed that as well? Or is that my copy of the 100-400L II? Is that something to worry about?  :-\

...... http://photoinf.com/General/Johannes_Vloothuis/landscape_composition_rules.html I don't think it makes sense to do art or photography by a set of rules, but it's an interesting read because for me it's a different way to think about paintings/photos.
Agree. It is very subjective. If everbody in the past would stick to 'rules', there would not have been a development in art.

Any comments are appreciated.

I'm  not commenting individually, but you gotta watch this before doing "from behind" shots, floating heads or teal-orange posters :-) ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXJiBkFgprQ

Lenses / Re: 70-300L mark II soon?
« on: February 22, 2015, 04:40:36 AM »
The 70-300L is of 2010. It is an excellent lens with modern IS, great IQ. It can handle high resolution as well. I don't expect an upgrade for this lens in the next 10 years.
The combo 70-200 plus TC seem to yield better results at aprox 300:

Soo... ā€Lā€ does not stand for exeLense?

The 70-200 is about 2000 euro. The 1.4x is about 400 euro. Together it makes a whole different price class than the 70-300L. The 70-300L is aimed as quality telezoom for travel. It is light (much lighter than a 70-200+1.4x), short and the IQ can compete with the more expensive zooms like 70-200, so it may not be that good but IQ is close to that. An excellent lens.
