Really happy with how this turned out.  Five shot panorama with Canon 5D MKii and Sigma 105mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro at F/13 iso 100.

Very nice. Lovely sky. Well done Andy.

Thank you for the kind words.
In this picture he seems to be taken up by you and saying "strange looking human twins in the pram!"


He really posed for you!

I agree with the folks here. Get a FF. No point getting another crop camera.

This poor gal must be old, look at the chunk missing from her beak.

7d Mk II, 300mm f/2.8L
ISO 400, 1/500 sec @ f/4.5
Cropped to about half its original size
Wow! Nice! So do you have a blind that you shoot from? How do you get so close?

Boy you guys are puffing me up with pride but since it only spurs me onward, I guess it's OK.  To keep all this in perspective it is a setup.  On the other hand I've invested a ton of energy in my observatory, so lucky to have had the little barn where a wonderful group of mature trees now reside and it's near a creek as well so maybe this summer I'll have more to show for it.  A wise move to go off my deck even though that was still quite good.  For anyone that didn't notice my props previously and want to know what I'm up to there are old postings.  Or PM me.

Excellent shots Jack!

Hi There, has anyone encountered this problem on a 5Diii and knows of a 'fix', please? When I use AV or TV I cannot apply any exposure compensation using the rear quick control wheel. I can apply Excomp via the Quick control panel but I don't want to be constantly looking at the back of the camera.
This standard feature of applying Excomp works fine on my other 5Ds but not this >:(

What is the position of the Lock Switch? (Just below your quick control wheel).
Good point! Today I coul not change the aperture when in M as I had the lock switch on!

Although I voted for the 100-400, if money was not the limiting criteria, I would  get both. The 100-400 would be used more.

Don't tell me we are still reading the beeping manuals! Real photographers don't read manuals! We just shoot!  :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P
