I'm the kind of customer that's perfectly happy without any of those thingymebobs.

I only ask as I frequently go for walks in the woods I find their trails often enough, I have a 200-500mm tamron antique and the temptation to just sit down and wait for one has hit me. Theeeeeeen I think other then the few times where I bumped into one and it ran away and the the info from books I have no insight into how they behave in the field. So lets stick to macro shots of mushrooms.
What is the etiquette of bear photography?
I appreciate the humour, at 6'4 my stride means I have plenty of slower companions.
The tammy would make a wicked blunt instrument I might add.
For those who went out with the intent of photographing bears, other then your photography gear what else to do you bring? Witnesses? Bear spray?Just bring someone that is slower than you, and tastier...
And I believe he came ashore from this ship ...Went walking today on the Beach, found this Guy, not as pretty as the recent shot by Eldar, less well fed perhaps.Oh, this is massively good!

I find it very difficult to decide whether the format should be square or not.The warmer colour tones and the square format works best in my opinion.
I like to know what your opinion is and why?
Did the drug lord really shoot Canon, or is it just a movie prop?
I wouldn't know, but I do know just because you're a mass-murdering bastard doesn't mean you cannot acquire good taste along the way :-o. The interesting question is: If you've really got so much money to spend, what would you buy? Leica?
What do you mean? The company or a camera?
Can't really vote on this one. The one I have and use a lot is my only EF-S, the 10-22. I only regret that it's one lens I never will be able to carry over to a - imagined, and longed for - FF camera. If they release it with EF mount and make it slightly faster, I will be all over it like flies on a turd.
I was in the same situation when I moved to FF. However, I realized 24mm is a lot wider than 17mm on an APS-C (I had the 17-55).
When I need to go wider, the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 and TS-E 17mm both offer more unique options. I might still get a UWA zoom but I will wait well into 2015 before I do, and it will possibly be a 16-35 refurb'd.
Thanks for your thoughts and input, guys! It's much appreciated.$710 for a 600EX-RT? Not any more. That sound like maximum RRP. Shop around. You should get them for under $500 now.
pwp: Metz is cheaper here than Canon SpeedLites at comparable GN's.
Canon 600EX-RT -> $710
Metz 64 AF-1 -> $535
What about pre-owned? Good 600 EX-RT's can be picked up for under $400 if you're patient, and mint condition 580EX II's can be bought any day of the week for around $300. Canon Speedlights tend to be amazingly robust and reliable bits of kit. I absolutely hammered my pair of 580 EXII's for years until an update to 600 EX-RT's and I've been hammering my pair mercilessly for over 12 months now. They 100% pass the tough-test.
