Blue-and-yellow Macaws. Photo taken in Tambopata, Peru.
Camera: Canon 40D, Canon 300 f2.8 IS mk1

Very nice.
Is that sunlight / beam that colors the wing?

Very nice review. If I would not already own the 16-35 f/4, your review would give me a lot of reason to buy this UWA lens instead of another.
You made some excellent pictures

Very nice indeed.
The dark hat and black shirt work well on the dark background because of the skin-tone. Very good lighting.

Seems to me that 1Dx Mark II is coming in 2015. 8)

You mean it is about time to start a rumorthread about the 1Dx Mark II  ;D

I finally upgraded my III to a IV and this shot is from a night game tonight.  This was shot with a 70-200 IS at 1250, f/4, ISO4000.  It is a jpeg out of the camera and just cropped and unprocessed.

I wonder if the 7D Mark II will give me a shot better than this

If you keep the same shutterspeed, my guess the 7D MKII will be one stop ISO higher to get the same result. It is just a guess. I am curious about the comparison between the two AF-systems.... will the 7D MKII be more precise - better keepers, faster.....?

I own the 200-400 1,4x And that is  realy the most verstilde I know. It s heavy. That's true. Hard to handhold for a longer period. However to deliver the range of 200 to 560 mm is really great. The 300mm 2,8 is another great lens. Incredible sharp and fast. I will not sell it now I have the 200-400, but to be honest it is used less compared to a few months qgo

Do you use it - if needed for a longer period - icw monopod or tripod?
If monopod, how much time did you need to control the balance on the monopod? It seems to easy to loose the straight horizontal line (while being in landscape mode) Thanks
