Lenses / Re: My New "L"
« on: January 16, 2015, 01:11:24 PM »
No kidding, my first L was the 70-200 F2.8 mk II.   I was blown away with the quality of pictures it could produce compared to my 70-300 IS USM.   Now I've got the itch and expect to have a total of 3 L's added to my kit this year.
Ouch, that's not a good one to start with.  Killer IQ, build quality, IS, etc.  My first L was the 135 f/2, which is understated, but proved to be equally addictive :).  Only bankruptcy can save me now  ;) :o ;D ;)

Especially because you got infected with the 800 that you have rented  8)

The Tamron has deteriorated somewhat vs the sharper 300 series.


What a lens - the 300 f/2.8 II!
Still, I see you added the zoom (100-400II) to your collection. Is that because of the zoom? What is the benefit for you in the field?

...........It looks like Smugmug has oversharpened the web version.................
Did you check the settings in Smugmug? I believe there is a default setting that is set to sharpen the picture once you upload it to smugmug. I am sure you know about it

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

..........Unfortunately, I have lost my 7DII and 100-400 - my wife has appropriated them.  We now both take bird photos.  She uses the 7DII while I have to lug around the 5DIII +  300 mm f/2.8 II + 2xTC. Frankly, t don't get much extra for the additional weight and cost.

But that's nice to share this wonderful passion together.....no?
Absolutely yes. I think she needs a 400mm DO II for her next birthday.

I see...
