Congrats Dylan...  So you did beat me to this lens   :'(

Have fun
Thanks 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 ;D. This is hand-on experience feedback. I'll add x2 TC III soon.

Congratulations. It´s an awesome lens and I´m sure you´ll put it to good use. The only problem is that it is addictive. You may as well start saving for the next one sooner rather than later ;) Enjoy!
Thanks...800mm next  ;D

Nice, never really played with the special effects package... Ill have to give it a try now. Not sure where to open a thread for X100S pictures. Was thinking about naming it "Fuji X-series photos from Canon Guys" though.

Here is one of my son in the backyard using Cactus V triggers and Lastolite Softboxes with 580exII's. All manual with the internal ND...



Fast enough for rope jumping ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Add battery grip to maintain 6fps on 5D III
« on: November 19, 2013, 10:32:00 AM »
I’m shooting with 5D III. When the battery is full, I have no problem getting 6fps. However, when the battery is at half or 1/3 drops, I don’t get that 6fps anymore.

Will extra battery in battery grip helps? Have anybody try this before?

Thanks
Dylan

...The coach asked to see the photos and I showed him my pictures. He offered to pay for all 500 photos for $350(about 1hr of fun for me). I took the offer and gave him all JPEGs...

Man, congratulations!  That is... incredible, actually.  Almost unheard of in the photography business world to have someone offer to pay that much on the spot for unsolicited pics!  So uncommon that my brain is trying to rationalize it: maybe the coach and his kid are in Witness Protection program and bought the pics to keep them off the internet.  Of course if he does post them on his site, my theory is blown :(

In all seriousness, that's great!  No, I'm not jealous.  Not at all :)

Whatever the reasons were, I got $350 CASH ;D

My 2cents: he truely will post the photos I gave him on his website. Why? I saw he has little Nikon P&S in his jacket ;)

Thanks for info. Did you get a chance to play with A7/A7R with Zeiss 55mm? - if yes, do you find this combo still at compact level?

Unfortunately no, they ONLY had the 35mm lenses on the cameras. They didn't have any other FE lenses to test with. They did however have a whole load of metabones adapters to attach your own lenses and the Sony Amount SLT adapter.
However, i did ask them about the size of the 55 and the 24-70f4 and since they had ALL the A mount lenses on display,  ithey were able to give a rough example of their sizes and all i can say..it's about the size of the 17-40 from Canon so it's NOT small at all. the 35mm is the ONLY small compact size lens.

I tried it with the Canon 50mm f1.4 and the metabones mk3...it's soooo slow it's impossible to really use for work..average 2 sec AF.

I also tried the A mount adapter with the Zeiss 24-70 f2.8. This is SUPER fast..like a 5d3 but it's basically the same AF as a99 so it's expected. however, it is soooo front heavy..it's super uncomfortable to hold.

Again...thanks for the info.

I think most know what lens I want.

You've made no secret of your desire for a 40mm f/2.8 MkII.
Black or white?

Yes. ...received cash at the field.  He will use my photos to post on his site.

Congrats, that's a really cool surprise!  But that's a lot of cash for him to be walking around with! :o
None of my business,  but he seems to have more than $350 cash on that day.
