I just got the 50Art.
It is raining outside. And indoors I could not find a model....so I just got those 2 guys......and for once they have nothing to say....because this is an awesome lens!
Maybe not the best example but I just started to play with the lens.

Return it...AF seems off. The subject on the right is oof ;D

Congrats....on your toy

I should start a thread on how to purchase equipment and sneak it into the house without your wife knowing  ;)
That's what I'll be doing today - sneaking, not writing a thread, that is 8).

My wife already giving up tracking my lenses :P

Last weekend, she saw me setting up the flashes and umbrella at home office. She looked at me and asked "have you seen my new Fendi bag?"

It was a HAPPY ENDING for both ;D
I'm just glad your story wasn't set in a massage parlor :o.  And I bought my wife a new laptop this week, so if she catches me, I'm okay.  I'm guessing she tracked your big whites, though, I know my wife sure did!

LOL...... ;D

@Dylan777,

my pleasure, I don't think you can go wrong with either Wimberly or RRS. If I may suggest, if you do consider RRS do look at the side-mount gimbal as well. It would be ideal for your 400mm and after using both full-gimbal and side-mounts, I have complete confidence in the side-gimbal for my 200-400mm. (Works beautifully with the RSS replacement foot).

If you later really desired the full gimbal version, you could conceivably purchase the components later to make the side-gimbal a full gimbal.

Anyway you've probably seen this but a short video that explains the difference. Most manufacturers make the traditional full gimbal so some may not even be aware of the side option.

Thanks again winglet for the info

The full gimbal package got me interest more. Trust me, I believe in "buy it one & buy it right" theory ;)

It does sound like "the year of lenses"

I'm not excited about a 16-35mm F4 but would be about a 12-24 or a 14-24 F2.8.

I like the idea of 16-35 f4 IS or 17-40 f4 IS. Be able to use thread mount filters is a plus on the field. Just make sure this new UWA is good as Nik 14-24 or better. Having IS on UWA is nice, especially when we don't have a tripod around - be able to shoot 1/10 will be awesome.

SOrry to hear that....but this is Canon Rumor site. We love our L  ;)

You might want to post a thread here: http://nikonrumors.com/

I'm inclined to believe this, since I've got a 17-40 f4 ordered. :)

On the other hand, this will probably be significantly more expensive anyway.

IQ & build quality will define the price tag

5D III,  70-200 2.8L IS II - West Auckland,  New Zealand.

Awesome shot Menace  :)

1015
Speaking of timing. These where all shot West of Ireland while fishing for blue whiting.

Beautiful series Faroes,

Thank you for sharing. Welcome to CR ;)

Love my Lexar cards!

+1...shooting with 2 Lexar 32GB, 1000x Speed Rating, so far so good

I'm been thinking about x2 TC III for my 400mm f2.8 IS II. It would be nice to have 800mm range for wildlife. I'm little concern about IQ loss ???
Don´t be. It is still great. Take it to a store and try it out. You will be very pleased. The attached image is a 100% crop
5DIII, 1/1000s, f5.6, ISO400, handheld.

One of the best bird photographers I know uses the 400/2.8 II + 2xTC to get spectacular photos.

Thanks Alan & mackguyver for the encouragement. I'm very happy with my x1.4 TC III.

I can see the x1.4 TC III on my 70-200 f2.8 IS II and x2 TC III on my 400mm f2.8 IS II for mid-to-long wildlife shooting ::)

1018
Here´s another one. Not quite 100% crop, but less than 50% of full image.
5DIII, 1/800s, f6.3, ISO4000, handheld

Thanks Eldar for providing sample photos. Both photos look promising.


1019
5DIII 300mm f/2.8 II + 2XTC III at f/5.6
All 100% crops and at the very limit of what is possible for me. The images are miniscule.  The images aren't great, but they captured my birding yesterday. I was asked why I carried such a large lens, but a smaller one or bridge camera couldn't have done these. The lens was worth every penny for me.

Good capture Alan,

"P... off!"
Great Crested Grebe on her eggs, not to happy with the company.
1DX, 600mm f4L IS II + 1.4xIII
1/500s, f6.3, ISO320

Ummm...this photo reminded me of my ex from HS ;D ;D ;D

Good timing Eldar
