My only problem with the 2.8 is that it is too heavy to carry easily . . .
Some taken this afternoon in my yard of Japanese White-eyes (Mejiro). 5D3, 100-400L.
Purple Sandpiper in the surf zone - Martha's Vineyard. ( taken by hand while standing in the surf )
Usually very shy. A flock had found something tasty on the rocks and ignored me. Took about 100 shots, each one better than the next, great fun.
60D and 100-400mm
Oh, oh, look what I've started.
I feel for you. Come over to Pune, India and we can drive 60 miles to a lake where a number of migratory birds come. You can have your pick of birds.
I sold my F4 a while ago - to get the 2.8, and now wish I had the F4 back. I'm contemplating buying another copy, but someone said there may be a Mk II version coming quite soon. Does anyone know if we can expect a 70-200 F4 MARK II in the near future? If so, how would it differ from the current version?
I cancelled my pre-order Sony a7 + zeiss 55mm
Congrats Dylan... So you did beat me to this lensThanks jr.
I rented last week. Love it. I cancelled my pre-order Sony a7 + zeiss 55mm and went with this.
Hint: If you love your 70-200 f2.8 IS II, then you will love 300mm even more . This is hand-on experience feedback. I'll add x2 TC III soon.
BTW, not everyone who posts here has English as their first language. So basically calling a less than perfectly worded post "a mandate of trolls" is myopic.Et godt poeng! Jeg har med undring lest hva som skrives her, ikke minst av de som åpenbart har engelsk som morsmål. Noen ville vært nær strykkarakter på en vanlig norsk/svensk/dansk ungdomsskole
Jeg tror jeg selv forstår engelsk rimelig godt, men uttrykket "et mandat av troll" er definitivt ukjent og høres passe meningsløst ut. Ha en strålende dag
PS! I checked what google translate made of it and it is pretty close
I shouldn't have to read posts carefully if they are written out clearly enough....tricky posts are the mandate of trolls...
Absolutely right ... I stopped reading your post right after this sentence.
Yep, I thought I was wasting my time with you....now I know I was
At f/1.0, depth-of-field isn't paper-thin, it's vapor-thin. Don't expect every shot to have bang-on-perfect focus unless you're using the latest camera and have a lot of practice with it.
When photographing people, always focus on the nearer eye.
I'm impressed that I get results as good with any of my 5D Mk III's AF points, not just those marketed as "high precision." Likewise, I'm impressed that I can recompose after focusing and get swell results.
If you don't like Canon's offerings, take your money elsewhere, get the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8, get a Sony A7 or whatever else you find best. What is the point in continuously moaning?
Don't worry, I'll do just that, as soon as "my next camera system" becomes available.
Until then I am not moaning, but just stating my opinion. Like you and everybody else.
