Lenses / Re: Before you buy your next prime...

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 with a smile and said "have you seen my new Fendi bag?"

It was a HAPPY ENDING for both ;D

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  :)

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 ::)

1253
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.

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,

Good timing Eldar

Ruddy shellduck, female
This is a very rare visitor. It is actually the first time I have seen one. I suspect it is a runaway from a duck farm from somewhere south of here though. But a very beautiful duck it is.
1DX, 600mm f4L IS II + 1.4xIII
1/800s, f8.0, ISO800

+1...interesting color

I thought you said you done with lenses ;D

Congrats...on your new toy mackguyver ;)
I guess I'm done with lenses the same way that 300, I mean 400, I mean, 600 or 800mm is long enough for you ;)

Just kidding, hope you're enjoying your toys as well.  I do hope to make some money with this - my 16-35 II has worked well for interiors, but is not great for exteriors and the TS-E 24mm is frequently too tight to shoot big buildings from the optimal position.  I have a handful of spec (as in speculator) shoots planned for some of my existing clients and a local architectural society.  If they go well, I should be able to pay for the lens and make a good profit pretty quickly in addition to building some business.

Sounds awesome mackguyver.

Look forward to see your photos, Best Dylan
