Yeah, great shots! What a lens. Dreaming about it!

The beautiful Lake District, Lake Ullswater, Penrith, Cumbria UK

Having this 2 miles away is a photographers dream and my inspiration to be a photographer.

Great shots Tom. Love it!

I live in the Netherlands in the city with the one bridge too far.

Some Greater Yellowlegs shots from earlier this week, Washington shore.
Those are awesome! I like them very much.

If you get one, pick up the oddly shaped lens hood (I got mine cheaply from eBay). You are that close to a subject that flare is a potential issue.

Use mine a lot with a 1Ds3 and 100D (higher effective magnification)
I have it mounted on a stackshot rail driven via Helicon Remote.

One other thing - I live in an old house with floorboards. I have to ask people to stop moving round when doing a stack at maximum magnification if not using flash (mt-24EX)

Here it is when I was taking photos of some very small chips (the observant amongst you may notice that the camera lead is not connected ;-)

That's some setup! Can you show us the result? Thanks

I am back from my trip.  (BTW, it was with Overseas Adventure Travel.  A good balance of cost and quality, IMO.)

In the end, I took two bodies, a 5D Mark II and a 5D Mark III.  They share batteries/chargers, which was convenient.  I brought a half-dozen batteries, but 3 would probably have been enough, even with no electricity on some of our stops. 

I brought the 70-300mm, the Kenco extender, and the 24-70 f/4.  (At the last minute, I decided to bring that one over the 24-105.  It's smaller, newer, has better macro capabilities.)  I was pretty happy with that combination, but if I had to do it over again, I might take the 16-36mm f/2.8 instead. I missed going really wide.  Not really for landscape vistas, but for interiors and for stuff like the kopjes. 

300mm plus Kenco extender was generally long enough.  I didn't miss my 600mm f/4.  I did miss the speed of my faster lenses.  But considering weight and all, the 70-300mm was perfect.

Thanks for the advice, everyone.  It was really helpful.  Especially the tip about the filters.  I did not need my rocket blower.  I never used the circular polarizer.  But those B+W filters were gold.  Dust stuck to everything except those filters.

The 70-300L is truly a great travel lens.
I like your pictures. Especially the secretary. Most have been relatively close considering the OOF. Well done!

Big Lake, Strathcona County near St. Albert Alberta

Nice colors nineyards. Great picture.
Are those fish causing the circles?

Thank you candyman
I believe it's floating vegetation

I took a look again and I think you're right.[size=78%] [/size]
