Wow! Look at the muscles! On the Paws, Cheeks, Neck... Is it a male? Claws are retracted. Seems very much at ease. Must be "Fed up" ;)

And you shot it @300mm? Not your 200-400L @400x1.4? What were you thinking? Or may be you noticed the claws were retracted...

Hi RPT, I had the 200-400 with me but happened to have the Strobe set up on the 300, so shot with the 300 as this Guy was Laying on the Rock but in shade & we were able to get so close to him.

Young Male, but Oldest Son to the Dominant Male Leopard in the area (A large 8 Year Old called Tyson), this Guy was substantially larger than his Dad, but at around 3 to 4 years Old lacked the experience to unseat his Dad as Dominant Male.

Tyson (see attached Image), is a Beautiful Male, apparently beats the crap out of any Male Leopard that enters the area (hence the name Tyson, although looking at is ear he possibly should have been called Evander), but let's his 3 Sons remain in the area unmolested (Real Family Guy), this is a face that just tells a story and only a Mother could Love.
Please stop posting photos Edward i cant afford to buy the 200-400 and a trip to tanzania lol!awesome work yet again :)

Matt granger just posted a video about how to do AFMA now if he is doing it correct then i am doing it all wrong what you think?

Lots of mistakes for a "pro".

He doesn't know the difference between back focus and front focus. 

Testing at 5-10x the focal length, he's using the wrong distance for general shooting.  The AFMA is often different near the MFD, so unless that's where you're always shooting, you shouldn't calibrate there.  Things even out as you get further from the subject/target.  In his defense, he's actually following the SpyderLensCal recommendations from when the product was first released.  They subsequently fixed their mistake, and updated their recommendation to 30-50x the focal length. 

His blanket statement that the DoF is 1/3 in front and 2/3 behind not a general rule, but applies with wider lenses and/or at closer distances (in the case of his 50mm lenses, he was actually at ~1:1 front:back, not the 1:2 he stated).
Yeah a lot of mistakes Neuro and he should have had it on self timer if that new camera has that or a shutter release cable,it seemed like a rush 2 min job :/.People out there are getting bad information though thats the bad thing.

I hate this forum lol as after my purchase of the 85 1.2 i am now considering the 300 2.8 2 and 2x extender to get me started on wildlife so thanks guys :P i tell myself its an investment as the lens if kept well will retain much of its value :)

Timbavati South Africa 2013

1Dx 400f/2.8 L II, Shot @ f/2.8 & 1/1000th ISO200

This was one of those Shots where I'de pretty well dicked it from the start, forgot to change the ISO, Forgot to change the Shutter Speed, came around a corner, Sun pretty well set behind the Trees, and saw this Guy resting inside the Trees, shot from the Hip as they say, 3 shots & he was up & away.

The 1Dx & 200-400f/4 was also on the seat, didn't look at it for this shot, this is where the f/2.8 is sooooo handy.

Saved in Post, almost.
wonderful work again edward :)

Here is one from my new 85 1.2 before AFMA,turns out it needs +7 on the 1dx and +4 on my 5dmk3.

Aye! That is one bonnie lass! Eyes like that should be unlawful on a beautiful woman - removes all sense from a man's head!  ;)

Love to see you using the 85L, born, that's my next piece of glass, lord willin'...

Question - how are you using that beast? One shot/focus & recompose or One shot/select AF point & don't move or AI Servo and let the camera deal with any movement?
Hey old shooter :-) thank's she is a bonnie lass i will give you that lol :).I was just using one shot spot AF but this was the 1st time i used it so will take a bit of getting used too,i do use back button af also not sure if this would make any difference :/.

Each to there own :-) i bought the 85 1.2 because i love such shallow DOF :-) all i want is the eye in focus here :)

Love the Image Bornshooter, subject in this instance would appear to make it easy, lovely Lass.

My experience with the 85f/1.2 L II has been at f/1.2 you just don't have leeway for any movement in the subject, so I'm always cranking up the Shutter Speed, higher ISO, but your right, keepers with this Lens are fewer, but what you get are generally pretty good.

As I said, this Lens was made for you.
[/quoteYeah it's going to be a harder lens for me to get used too but i think it will give me something that no other lens will :) now time to save for 2014 the year of the lens according to CR :P

Shot with the Zeiss 50@f2. Wonderful lens for tight crop portraits, imo. VERY tricky to nail focus of my kids up close wide open.


Cracker,love the expression!

Thanks! I tried to get him to smile, and he pulls out this crazy forced smile, that's actually quite funny, but I wanted something else. I started to scream and told him to do the same, lol.
Good idea :-) and keeping kids attention for more than 5 minutes is challenging for me anyway if i come away with one awesome shot i am happy :-) you have did that viggo :)

Personally speaking I don't like her chin being out of focus; depth of field is too shallow. I like to see beautiful girls in sharp focus - all over  ;)

Each to there own :-) i bought the 85 1.2 because i love such shallow DOF :-) all i want is the eye in focus here :)

Does not seem to be anything wrong with neither lens nor subject there ;)


Thank' eldar,i noticed from using it on the shoot my keeper rate was very low and it seemed much worse the further the distance i was from the subject,so i have calibrated it today so will give it a go over the next couple of days and see how it goes :) amanda is flawless though ;)
