the only reason to use smaller raw for me was to shoot single pics for panorama stitch and have the completed panorama file inmanageable size.

Some of mine from Frankfurt Main (Germany)

1. 5D Mark III + 100-400
2. G1X
3 and 4: 30D + Sigma 50-500

The tiger in 2 looks quite sad.

Love 3 and 4. 3 looks just about to pounce.

Since I was a kid I loved all the big cats, esp tigers. So sad that they most likely will become extinct in the wild soon.

Love the shot of Zeus (first page) especially. *sigh* wish I had the time for a pet again. Grew up with all kind of animals.

Toby dug in the sun looks like he is having fun. Makes me smile just watching :-)

Yes, 7D. In fact that was one of the main reasons why I got it, hoping to be able to catch moving animals in focus.

LOL, yes I know what you mean Mr. Bean. The camera needs some IQ to read my mind what I want to have in focus and what not. Thanks to digital age I just take more pictures and usually at least some of them are useable, esp when using spot AF and spot metering.

I also love the 3 custom settings you can register so I am able to instantly switch between apropriate settings for a bird just flying over me and the flower I am spending time with on the ground.

Most closeups where done with 400mm (2x200mm). The "faster" ones without the extender.

Went on the photohunt with my 70-200 2.8 II testing my new E2xIII.

As I consider myself a passionate amateur I am happy about tips and feedback to improve!

Could now check the photo details at home.

Wolf: 95mm f/2,8 1/60s i3200 (it was too dark for the extender under the trees)
Nandu: (2x) 400mm f/6,3 1/400s i400
Cheetah: (2x) 400mm f/5,6 1/80s i400

Yes this combination is ideal for me both in respect to price and weight. I was unsure in the beginning about the extender as I heard so many negative comments esp. About the 2x. But from what I have seen I am very happy with the results.

I only felt curiosity from the wolf but I was happy there was a fence between us. :)

70-200 2.8 II plus 2x III extender, but I don't remember where I have used the extender. Have to check when I get back home.

I just want to finally know what the 70D will be so that I know if I can get the 60D now or should wait for 70D as backup/alternate to my 7D.

First time here! Hi everybody :)

After fooling around and studying photography as a hobby for a couple of years I am feeling comfortable enough to start sharing images.

So this was an evening at the zoo. Thunderstorm was about to happen, so it was a little dark. I am amazed what 7D and LR can do with ISO up to 3200.

Chris
