here is a kookaburra shot with the 600

Has anyone else skimmed the "" site for other info?
The 3D will be the monster megapixel studio camera - due later this year - Photokina?  BUT also the photoshopped image to have eye-control (bottom right corner) "".  Fun, but bring on that truckload of salt for now. :o
Lets get through next week first.

hehe beat me to it
also the 40mm f1.2L lens on it...


they present stuff that is guesswork rumours or wish list as a little too factual for my taste

I really hope the high MP camera isnt integrated gripped

Typically the 18-55 kit lens and body sell for about the same as body only or only a tiny difference.
probably best to just get the kit and then you have the kit lens to sell with the body down the track
from what everyone here says the 15-85 canon zoom is a stellar lens so you might want to look at that
also since there is no AF micro adjust on the rebel range I would be hesitant to go sigma and stick with canon as tolerances seem tighter.

Not of surfing, per se, but in Carlsbad, CA whilst on vacation I caught this young boy with surfboard in hand.

I know, I know, not as cool as some smoking hot girl catching a wave, but it was what I could shoot in front of my wife.
not bad but you should rotate it so the horrizon is level and crop to suit also what is the big black patch at the bottom?
love the colours and nice composition though

Lenses / 600mm f4.5 FD

I went out last weekend and did some shooting with this and I have to say for a lens of it's age it is amazing
I would be posting pics with this thread but during the week my hard drive in my laptop seems to have taken a dump and killed lightroom I hope to get it fixed tonight or over the weekend then i can post up some pics.

but onto my question, wide open with bright background there is very heavy CA and obviously LR doesnt have a preset for this lens. so my question is how do you make you own lens profile to fix this stuff in LR (I'm quite new to LR so be gentle)

The other scary thing that happened was i nearly dropped my 1D when it detatched itself from the edmika adaptor, not quite sure how it happened as the camera seems to lock on fine and not come loose when i checked it out afterwards so I dont think its a fault of the adaptor. maybe it was the way i was carrying it with the lens strap over my shoulder and camera still attached i felt it come loose and caught it between my arm and body which was very lucky!
Anyone else had a lens and body detatch unexpectedly? its damn scary  :o

I don't have one but everyone I know with them love them, the other lens to consider that lot of people rave about is the tokina 11-16 f2.8 its supposed to be killer on a crop

While I like the 70-200 I have found since getting the 85mm that the 85 has taken over for shooting portraits, I typically use the 70-200 as more of a walk around general purpose lens now (and keep the 16-35 with me too). I would say get the 85 first. I just recommend testing the f1.2 in a shop first to see if you can live with the AF speed. but as for IQ goes Its awesome

I can't believe gudun74 has only got +3 karma after posting a shot like that... :P

Well, after all I think this is simple... just shown some gratitude!!!

You are suspicious, that's ok... but after all of that there was no gratitude at all.

Sergey did a great job for free !

I'm gratefull!
thanks Sergey!
Sorry I didn't say it before. I was kind of hoping it would work on the 1Dmk3 but not expecting it too as those things have proved impossible to get shutter counts out of except for sending it to canon
It works great for the 5D2s though :D
