Car charger an option?
Thanks, but no. The car charger just replaces the AC cord as a way to power the battery charger itself. The issue is that, uike the compact charger for many other batteries, the 1-series dual battery charger is the size of a paperback novel.
I would also see it being used for automated bird photography setups. Such as hummingbird flash photography...
Flash photography at 14 fps? How does that work? Are there flashes that recycle that fast? Also, you can't get 14 fps at max Xsync, you need at least 1/1000 s for 14 fps.
PS - as another suggestion, maybe a 17-55 2.8 IS if you can find one within your budget (maybe look 2nd hand)? I liked it a lot on crop (well, it does have to be on crop after all!) and the IS can be useful. If it was me shooting with your gear, I think I'd be looking at the 17-55 2.8 IS, the Sigma 18-35 1.8 or a flash (subject to budget of course).
I could justify the price of the 17-55 (around $900, same as the Sigma 35mm 1.4 that I'm already considering), if I could convince myself that I wouldn't immediately begin wishing I had faster prime glass for indoor shooting.
I've never rented a lens before, but at that price I might go the rental route before I commit.
