And now Dylan a tough question. Actually a very tough one: Does your wife know? Does she even know about this poll?
If the size and color is same as my 400mm f2.8 IS II, she couldn't tell the diff. That why I ruled out Tamron
24/70 2.8 @ 7.1
great grandson came over to visit so I had to get the camera out for a few fast ones
I think the prize winning photo you refer to is the one above. Now better understand the combination of factors that led to the accident. I thought about how it was dangerous for the "runners", but now I think it is even more dangerous to unsuspecting photographers. It is ironic that poisonous snakes and lions kill fewer photographers that hippos "cute". Should I put the bulls on my list of danger from now.
Be able to visit places you mentioned above would be a dream come true for me - maybe one day when the kids grow up a little bit more.
I live in California, 10min -15mins away from Huntington Beach. It's very well known place for surfing. The summer here is quite special. Be able to capture the pro surfers will be interesting in my photography collection.
Sigma 50-500 or a plain Canon, which one would they take?
Great pictures EML. But one thing I do not understand. The guy who had crushed D4 and 800mm was so close to the bulls, and could fit even two huge animals in the camera viewfinder, or he attempted a portrait "head and shoulders" of the animal and did not realize the actual distance? Should he have used a 1200mm?
Stunning images Edward! The speed, sound, splash, mud and excitement can really be felt.
Poor Chinese though. But I suppose, when you provoke the bulls with a Nikon rig, you only have yourself to blame ...
However, given how I sometimes worry about my gear, shooting with expensive stuff like 1Dx & 200-400f/4, D4 & 800f/5.6... in Sumatran mud and water, with bulls running around... must be an adrenaline sport on its own
Superb ! I love the subtle colours you're getting.
BULL RACING you have to love it. wonderful shot !
To me the question is a bit odd. The 600mm is made for a totally different use than the 200-400. They are both exceptional lenses and outstanding for their use. When going on a trip, where I don´t bring both, it has not been difficult to choose which one to bring.
It would be more difficult to compare the 200-400 with the 300 f2.8L IS II, with the 1.4xIII and 2xIII extenders. The 300 is clearly less flexible, but it is smaller, it gives you exceptional IQ, AF speed and a stop advantage and also very good performance with the extenders. You also have significant money saved for something else.
It´s a substantial cost to get both the 200-400 and the 600, but it would have to be for something really exceptional if I were to part with any of them.
Sony a7r, Zeis 35f/2.8 + Zeiss 24-70f/4.OOps, just read about the "light leak" on the a7/a7r, haven't noticed it in mine but from reports it pretty well affects all the a7/a7r units produced and Sony have owned up quite quickly that it is an issue & they are working to resolve it, another Camera that will need to be shipped back to the Manufacturer.
Small, light weight, excellent 36MP back up Camera.
I use this now to back up my 1Dx, has almost replaced my 5DMK III, only drawback is small selection of Lenses, so I use the Metabones Adaptor & my Canon Lenses when I need to.
4fps is the only other drawback if your wanting to shoot Fast Action.
Thanks for all the comments
eml58, the fish lifting rainbow trout out of the water is an Osprey
CarlTN, the foreground and background were the heath and gorse hence the colour
ahab1372, it was taken on overcast day and no any other artificial lights was used here
