400mm, 1/400, f8, ISO 2500.

I'm guessing your 400mm working hard lately  ;D

Great shot Menace

So cute  :)  Beautiful light.  Another great shot Sir.

Thanks Click, this Image is the Mother of the Cute one, not so cute when they get to this size, this Mum was also the Alpha Female of the Pride, 14 Lions including the cubs.

1Dx 200-400f/4, Shot @ 560mm f/6.3 & 1/320th ISO125

Tanzania Serengeti

Short story re this Image, this was around 0800 in the Morning when I shot these Images, the pride had finished a Kill, after shooting these Images this particular Alpha Female left the Pride & her Cubs & headed off towards a Hill in the distance, after following her for about an Hour she came up to a thick section of Bush and another of her Cubs came racing out & jumped all over Mum whining and crying with what was clearly happiness, when the Pride had moved the previous day this little Guy was left behind by accident, the Cub stayed hidden knowing that Mum would back for her at some point, it was one of those heart warming moments where I simply didn't even think to shoot the Images, just being there & witnessing nature at it's best was enough.

incredible photo eml

I am thinking... wrapped in a box under the Christmas tree this year...  I am not a professional, but this will complement my other two zoom lens.  I love IS... too bad the 24-70 II IS is  not yet.

Soon or later, it will come  8)

Today I installed an Eg-S focusing screen in a 5DIII body. It was a very simple operation, even though the focusing screen is not a perfect match. Focusing with the Otus through the view finder, wide open, became a Lot easier. I was even surprised how well it worked also in dim light.

I have done comparisons between the two 5DIII bodies I have, the other with the standard focusing screen. With the Eg-S I got a 2/3 stop over exposure, which I compensated for. So the only consequence of using this focusing screen, as far as i can see, is that I cannot shoot manual with auto ISO, unless Canon provides the same option as they did with the 1DX.

Auto focus worked just fine.
Eldar, thanks for sharing your experiences with the screen and I'm happy that you're having a better time focusing the Otus 55 now.  As for the lack of auto ISO in Manual mode, I doubt that's as big of a deal with that lens as it would be with the 200-400 1.4x or 600.

So you have to select ISO in M mode with 1D X? This is one the reason I didn't like about 5D II + AF of course.

I see an awful lot of bitching, complaining and general brand hatred in this thread.  Let me add:

- If you want a Canon/Nikon camera like the A7/A7R to use with all your Canon/Nikon lenses, buy an adapter!
- If you don't like the A7/A7R, don't buy it.
- If Sony doesn't make the lens you want, use someone else's!

If you want a really great full frame camera, buy the Sony A7 or A7r and enjoy it.

I've been a Canon user for years and a Pentax user before that.  I now have an A7R with adapters for all my Canon, Pentax, Minolta, M42 and T2 lenses and love it.  I own one Sony lens, the kit 28-70mm fit lens for the A7 (because someone didn't like it and gave it to me).  BEST lens I've ever had for the price!

Stop bitching, go for it and have fun...
Not quite the post one expects from a first time poster ... nevertheless Welcome to CR!

Ummmmm, Yes, I agree with Rienz, welcome to CR, I think.

I've had my a7r for a while now, handed it to my eldest lad who likes it, but I recently re appropriated it to use with the Otus 55f/1.4, I must say that combination is quite remarkable, the Focus Peaking on the a7r is hugely useful with this Manual Focus Lens, I prefer this combo at the moment over the 1Dx with a Manual Focus Screen in place, especially in Low Light.

A7r + FE 55mm = 50L sold on ebay. I have no plan adding 50mm to my current gear. The primary reason I haven't place a pre-order on Canon 16-35 f4 IS is I'm waiting to see what Sony/Zeiss has to offer on their rumor FE 16-35 f4 OS.

$3499....same IQ as 200-400mm

There will be a lot of 200-400f/4 Lenses going cheap if this was the case   ;)

I think the 3.5k price Tag is pretty well ballpark though, the Nikon 80-400f/4.5 is selling for around 2.7k so you can safely bet the Canon will be close to 1k more expensive, be worth it as well if they can maintain a constant f/4.

Would work perfectly on the 1DMK IV.

I was on 2nd bottle of red  ;)

It's a NOT typo. 50L f1.2 II will be the sharpest 50mm ever in Canon line up, most accurate & speedy AF, best of all no more focus shift. Price tag $2300.

I love my 1Dx and 5DIII combo esp using both simultaneously  ;D
+1, I've tried several body/body combos like the 5DII and 7D, but none of them come close to my 1D X/5DIII pair.  They are a perfect match 8)

It's a "fantasy" for many of us(including myself) to own this combo or just a 1D X. Maybe one day gents...  ;)

Minimal - and I mean it - CA (you can hardly spot them)
Excellent sharpness from center to corner
Very low barrel distortion for an ultrawide zoom lens
Simply unbelievable resistance to flare - reminded me the 24-70II (perhaps even better)
Very nice ergonomics - built quality - smooth focus/zoom rings
IS only a fraction louder than the one inside 24/28/35 IS USM
Beautiful bokeh!

Vignetting at f/4 at 24mm and especially at 35mm

Definitely a classic!!!

1st shot 16mm, f/11

2nd shot 16mm, f/8.
The 2nd shot comes with details from bottom left and top right to help you evaluate how minimal the CA are... I haven't correct them..

3rd shot 16mm, f/5.6.

Music to my ears. Thanks for an early info MrPhotoEditor

Couple questions:
1. How is the AF? in term of accuracy and speed?
3. Do you find IS is helpful for UWA?


Great shot Zwek! 

Too much time at work lately to really even check this site out or take any new shots but here is a common Western Scrub Jay about half a second after takeoff. 

Good timing ERHP

Thanks for sharing

Today is our National Day, May 17th. And it is not just any national day, it is No.200! I celebrated at Eidsvoll, in front of the building where our constitution was signed on May 17th, 1814.

The National Day is special here, because it is the children's day. No military parades, but endless parades from all children schools and all the brass bands in the land. Quite spectacular.

This little girl represents the final year from her kindergarden. They carry these pink caps and ride in the parade with the high school graduates. She┬┤s at the end of the parade and I believe at the end of her energy to blow her whistle ;)

Priceless Eldar. Her parents would appreciated this photo

@ Menace and Eldar - this is just a "want" thing, hope it stays that way  ;)
