Looks smaller than the 7D ...no?

My first BIF's with my new 100-400 :DL, managed to use it for about 30 mins tonight, loving the AF speed!!!
At the start of last weekend I headed down to the mouth of the Tijuana River to hopefully catch something. A trio of Black Skimmers kept me entertained, at times coming in so close I couldn't focus.
You've seen photos of absurd urban scenes like this? The sign says:
Watch out! Of burglary zone.
As DXO has given a near perfect score to the D810, they may have painted themselves into a corner. Their proprietary scale doesn't give DXO much room to heap hyperbolic praise on the next Nikon release.
Hey guys, just thought i'd weigh in on my experience with the clicking lens too. I got my canon 24-70 2.8 II about 3 weeks ago (grey coloured box manufactured in March 2014) after returning a tamron 24-70 and the first thing i noticed when i got into a quiet room was that damn clicking.
I thought something was surely off, and then i found this thread and saw I'm in the same boat with a lot of other members. *shakes fist*
In any case, I popped off to the Canon service centre in Shanghai (where i live) and the guy first tried to palm me off by saying he couldn't hear it, and then after he could hear it, he said it was normal. After i pushed him a bit further, he said he would need to get a copy of the same lens to try (apparently the fact that my 70-200/17-55/18-55 zooms don't exhibit clicking isn't enough proof that zooms shouldn't click. Instead he said he could only base his conclusions on lenses of the same type, ie if his one clicks and mine clicks, then it's not a fault, it's a design feature... )
In any case, he said this noise didn't warrant the service centre opening up the lens.
In the end, the engineer said he didn't have the same lens on hand but he would request one from the marketing team to test later. After a week, he called me saying his one clicks too. He then said he would escalate it to his head office because he admitted clicking is a bit strange and he revealed another customer had come in with a clicker too.
Well i just heard back again today and the engineer said that the head office said it was normal, and it will not affect the function or usage of the lens. Go figure, eh? I guess Canon thinks if they close their eyes and ears long enough, we'll all get bored of waiting for a response from them.
On the bright side, the lens IQ is absolutely stunning, and it's my new favourite lens. I felt it wasn't worth pushing it further since i guess i can live with clickety click if it means i can have great photo quality.
Another Bald Eagle photo haha
I LOVE my 20mm 2.8 lens, but man is it showing its age. I still haven't seen the perfect wide prime from Canon, but I'm hoping for a 20mm refresh. If not, I'd buy a 16mm or 18mm in a heartbeat.

All Sigma lenses have focusing problems! I had two of the a 24-700 and 70-200 last versions - I sent them to be calibrated with my body and then everything was ok.
This is FALSE. I have two Sigma lenses that have had no focusing problems. (I don't consider improving AF accuracy with in-camera AFMA to be part of a "problem.")
But the 50 Art that I received did have erratic, unreliable AF that could not be helped with AFMA.
So, if online chatter can lead to Sigma fixing the problem, we aren't helping by using sweeping, ranting statements such as "All Sigma lenses have focusing problems!"
That's the best I can get out of the Canon EF 75-300 USM III, soft lens, given to me almost for free. Gonna upgrade my tele soon, as I'm starting to use it more and more.
@candyman, thank you.
The Mosedale valley had a village in the middle before it was flooded and dammed to make a reservoir in 1929, creating a supply of water for Manchester. They removed and relocated the village, there was a church and made the water tower out of the old church. The water tower houses the Dam control.
