Many may be surprised by this but this is my first owl, ever. So pardon the rather ugly image quality.


Philippine Scops Owl (Otus megalotis) by alabang, on Flickr

The Philippine scops owl (Otus megalotis) is a common owl, endemic to the Philippines, belonging to the family of the typical owls Strigidae. Everett's scops owl and Negros scops owls were formerly considered conspecific.

Philippine scops owls prey at night on insects. They live alone or in monogamous pairs. They breed throughout the year, laying clutches of 1-2 eggs. They nest in trees holes in lowland forests of Luzon, Catanduanes and Marinduque.

I think if your purpose is to do group shots and hand held landscape this is the lens to get. I'd only consider a f/2.8 if I was doing action shots.

Coppersmith Barbet,(Megalaima haemacephala), by alabang, on Flickr

The Coppersmith Barbet, Crimson-breasted Barbet or Coppersmith (Megalaima haemacephala), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat which is best known for its metronomic call that has been likened to a coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in the Indian Subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia. Like other barbets, they chisel out a hole inside a tree to build their nest. They are mainly fruit eating but will take sometimes insects, especially winged termites.

This is how rumors start. ;)

I regret not jumping ship to Nikon when the 800e came out. Now Nikon comes out with an update and canon is still dragging their feet with a high mp camera. I loved my mk III , but I see the limitations when I print anything larger than 30x40. I never thought canon would sit back and twiddle their thumbs and scratching their heads for two years, let alone almost three years for an update.
That could get Canon to do an update.

It must be truly great because I can't really imagine needing anything better than is offered by the 5DMkIII.
This is always said until the next latest and greatest shows up.

Canon General / Re: CF CARDS

I think cf has another ten years of life... but smaller with universal support is big.

The day is coming, but I wouldn't sweat it now.
No one's saying CF cards will disappear overnight but it will lose relevance to newer cameras once a CFast-based Canon body starts shipping. Whatever sales CF cards has within the decade will be for legacy hardware.

CF5.0 spec allows for 116,415TB data storage but at 167MB/s it would take more than 23 years to transfer all the data.

Nothing inherently wrong with the previous version. Canon will service it for about 1-2 decades more.
