Northern Pintail making a final course change prior to landing.


Wonderful photo. I like the colors too.

Very nice comparison video.
I must say that I am just a little bit shocked about the quality difference between the 24-70VC and the 15-30. Makes the 24-70 look poor in IQ. I had it compared with the 24-70II of Canon and the difference between those two was not so big as here between 24-70VC and 15-30VC. I love to see the comparison between the tamron 15-30 and the canon 16-35 f/4 IS

Well, my copy of the Tamron has obviously gotten decentered (I've taken it to countries all over the place and I'm sure it's gotten knocked around a bit).  I'll send it to my buddies at Tamron here in Canada and get that looked after.

Still, I know the Tamron 24-70 VC to be a very competent lens, so that the fact that this new lens leaves it in the dust bodes very well for it.

I only have the 15-30 VC for another day or so, so a direct comparison like this is out of the question for now.  I do plan on purchasing the 15-30 VC for myself, though (although I'm not sure how long it will take for me to get one), and I will have B&H send me a review copy of 16-35L to do a direct comparison with.


Ok. Very kind of you to plan that. Good luck with centering the Tamron. They have good service, at least with my experience.


Thanks again for the review, I enjoyed it.

I want to take a week's break at the end of March for bird photography in Cyprus, most probably in Paphos. Any suggestions for a hotel etc and advice, please?
Alan


Not a specific hotel but I would locate myself in Poli Crysochous. That is in between Paphos Forest and Akamas Peninsula National Park. That is if you are mobile by car

Chinese Goose... For some reason it looks like crap unless you click on it.
I had the same issue. I changed to sRGB and then it worked.

At the risk of sounding stupid, where would I change that? Thanks a bunch!


Good question. Cause you can change it in your camera, you can change it in your PP software program, you can change it as setting in your Monitor....
I guess it is the PP software.. :-\


I like your Goose!

Lenses / Re: Review: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II

I gave up reading for the annoying facebook, twitter, google+ and linkedin redirects down the left side of the page where the text is, insecure much?

Nothing like that on the page I just read, no ads at all

Great review, thanks. Not going to stop me enjoying my 70-300L but...... Hmmmm


True! And, not to forget, the 100-400 II takes the canon extender - the 70-300L not.
This wonderful review of the 100-400 has strengthen my interest in this lens - though the 400 DO II is still nr 1 on my list.

One for Valentines Day  :)

Lovely B&W Image Jeevz

They do appear to be a pair of young Males though, but on Valentines day I'm convinced any show of emotion is fine.

In keeping with the B&W Lion Theme & Valentines Day.
Wonderful couple, great photo!

1Dx Tanzania

Hello Edward, that's a beautiful close-up photo of the elephant.
That red eye.....it is to express he didn't like you taking his photo? Or you were too close?

Thanks for sharing this interesting story and those photos.
For me, personally, the second photo is a tiny bit too much HDR look. To capture enough details must have been a challenge considering the amount of clouds.

A F-22 Raptor doing some heavy banking.

Awesome photo. In that angle it looks like something not from here...
