I'm surprised, considering just how good this Lens really is, that the Thread for the Lens doesn't have more Posters showing Images from this possibly best ever Lens made by Canon.


I know at least two CR members just bought this lens. As I saw their other photos in the past, you will see their works with this lens soon.

Not a bad lens to capture this type of photo - TED, the train captain at Santa Ana Zoo

Duba Plains Lions, these amazing Animals are some of the only Lions that do all their hunting during the day, mostly using the water as a method of stalking & hunting their prey, and almost exclusively Hunt Buffalo. I've spent a week twice now at Duba, the 2nd fortunate to see these Lions make 2 Kills, unfortunate for the Buffalo of course.

As always, I enjoy your wildlife photos, especially photos on the 1D X thread.

Maybe one day I will join that group ::) For now, I need to save $$$ for 600mmish ;D

Stay tune ;)

Hi Dylan, finally found something you asked me about re the 300 + 1.4x

The attached isn't possibly the best example, but it was shot after actual Sunset, so still some light, but quite dim.

5DMK III 300f/2.8 L II + 1.4x V III, Shot at 420mm f/4.5 & 1/640th ISO1250

Majority of Grain was introduced in Post, I was wanting to give the Image that Old World Look, not always successfully I should add.

Looking good  ;)

Yes...I'm having a lot of fun last couple days.


Hi Dylan, well done, have a look at getting yourself a drop in Circular Polariser for the 300, it's not too expensive and is a huge benefit when shooting bright sunlight & especially green foliage.

I'm surprised, considering just how good this Lens really is, that the Thread for the Lens doesn't have more Posters showing Images from this possibly best ever Lens made by Canon.

Have Fun, look forward to seeing more from your current Lens Passion.

Thanks eml58 ,
Any suggestion on the drop in Circular Polariser?

Thanks surapon,

Will use this lens again tonight, as my daughter performs her last time in junior ballet. She will be moving to next class, bigger kids.

Nice shots Dylan
Congrats on your 1st big white lens
This lens is on my wish list I just have to be patient and collect money to my piggybank  :) ;)

Thanks DARSON,
It took me 1.5yrs in saving to get this baby. It worth every penny.

I know some CR members recently purchased this lens. We going to see more great photos from them. Stay tune ;)

Amazon bird - don't recall the name, too busy shooting

Roseate Spoonbill

From Wikipedia:
The Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea ajaja) (sometimes placed in its own genus Ajaja) is a gregarious wading bird of the ibis and spoonbill family, Threskiornithidae. It is a resident breeder in South America mostly east of the Andes, and in coastal regions of the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, and the Gulf Coast of the United States.

Thanks serendipidy,

I have little bit of zoom and prime lenses. Prime lenses create more pop and isolate subject(s) from back ground better - more WOW factor.

Very nice Dylan. Good composition, focus just right, great color and excellent bokeh!

Thanks Eldar,
Never done wildlife before. That was my first time going to the zoo, to test the 300mm :)

I the had the ISO setting wrong, should be 100 not 1000. I'm glad I'm shooting with FF ;D

Expect to see my next question soon - BIGGER-LONGER WHITE ::)
