I got the 500L II about a year ago. Needless to say it blew my mind. What I got since then are an awful lot of fantastic images (see some examples with and without TCs here: http://www.focrates.com/gear/gear.html - just scroll down to the bottom of the page), and suprisingly my GAS was cured... If you already have the best of the best what is there left to excite you?
Get it if you have the money AND are prepared to spend A LOT of time and effort!
Nice website. I found it fun to read and informative.
I would have a hard time justifying the price tag to the new wife on the mkii. I probably could on a used mki.
Very nice travel log.
It's been a few years since i've last entertained the idea of going in that part of the world, but you've revived my interest in it.
Hello fellow peoples,
I was at Melbourne Airport a few weeks ago photographing commercial aircraft coming in to land with a strong northerly wind. When I saw this clown* with his ipad trying to photograph a 777 coming in too land at 150kts, his ipad had no chance but he was convinced of getting a good shot! I said hello, we chatted a bit and I then suggested that a proper camera would do a better job!! He then started talking about photography and how he used to own a studio and do weddings and stuff, but all you need nowadays is a iPhone/ipad, his words this guy had no idea! I strutted back to my car and opened my boot/trunk and pulled out my 1d4 with 70-200IIL(hood attached) strolled back and started shooting at 10fps and showed him what this beast can do!!!!! all he said was nice camera, he stayed for one more landing got in his car and drove off, I haven't seen him again> true story ... I think Neuro had a similar experience
is there some reason its so narrow? it only fills the middle 1/3 of my screen. (16:9)
disregard "malicious website" warnings from antivirus programs. its not 1995 not sure why people even have them. they just breed complacency and cause people trouble with false positives.
Love your articles (great writing style BTW), excellent shots of course, and the site itself is well structured and easy to navigate. Loads nice and quickly too!
The only thing I would say, and bear in mind that this an entirely subjective thing, is that the "boxed" style (clearly outlined fixed width content area) along with the finish and arrangement of the navigation links looks a little retro to me. Like I said though, this is just my personal preference.
