Hour and a half under a camo cloth.
Canon 1D4 100-400II +1.4III
They still wouldn't come any closer, so they are cropped a bit.

I see that I am not the only one suffering from strange HTML behaviour here at CR....


Anyway, I am more interested to see a 135mm preferable with OS

I've been a lurker for a while on this forum but I started reading through this thread and got inspired to post a few landscape shots.  :)



Those are some very nice photos. I like the first one

[...]we'd better tell Eldar!
I was thinking the same thing!

I am trying to research if this new eyecup will fit the T3/1100d.  If so, when can I get one? ???
Yes, the MG-Eb model fits crop sensor bodies (MG-Ef fits full frame) and it is available for pre-order from Canon, B&H, Amazon, etc.  It looks like it will be out in April.
Well....it says it fits DSLR cameras that are compatible with the Ef eyecup


My 5D MKIII uses the Eg eyecup  :( 
Edit: but the 6D is covered  :)

The link to the PDF is not working for me...

When I surf to the Hongkong (english) Pressroom, I see all the published press releases 2015 (I filtered on 2015). Don't see the one for the 5Ds / 5Ds-R and also not the press release of the Magnifier  :-\
I just tried it again and it works for me.  The full details are in the screen shot above, which is from page 9 of the PDF.
Viola...yes now it works for me too. Must have been a hick-up in my internet connection... ???

I don't normally shoot swimming either but did occasionally indoors when my children were practicing. Now this was a swimmingpool that has the size of the competition pool. I used the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II with the 7D & 5D MKIII. It is actually short to cover the full pool length unless you are allowed to move yourself around the pool. The aperture is the least you need because of speed of your subjects and - probably - the artifical light that is different from outdoors light. (btw I also had to deal with changing light because of few windows that allowed sun to shine through)
Flexibility of zoom is good. If they allow you move - than ok. Otherwise put yourself in a good position.
Maybe a 400 f/2.8 can do better, but it is big and heavy.
I wouldn't use the extender on the 70-200 because the loss of a stop.


edit: something wrong with the html-tags/fonts - first attempt of posting resulted in rediculous small font.

Most important for me is: EC in Manual when using Auto ISO
