Wide open with the 200 f2.0 L. I should have had a 400 or 500 because it is heavily cropped  ::)


Very nice Viggo

Cheers!

If you hadn't mentioned I wouldn't have known it was a crop from a shorter lens.

Hehe, it holds up quite well despite the measly 18 mp  :P

Lovely shots Viggo! I love the colour and lighting.

I think I have to try out that lens.

Thanks guys! And yeah, Eldar it's by far the coolest lens I have owned ever. It simply is.. Razor sharp anywhere in the frame and the epic blur combined with no ca and no distortion and tje wonderful color and contrast and, and..  you get the idea  ;D

From an outing today. 200 f2.0 at f2. I had a few colorful leaves directly in front of the lens as an overlayed color blur that I shot through.

...the kind of wicked pincushion you'll get at 11mm.

You keep using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means. 

Good grief. I know what it means. With the 10-22 on my 7D, at 10mm things appear "pinched" towards the center. Trees also get a much more significant tilt towards the periphery of the frame than with my 16-35mm.

From TDP:

"To cut the chase, I must say that I am very impressed by the lack of strong barrel and pincushion distortion in the 10-22. It is not perfect, but very good for this extreme wide angle focal length range. There is some barrel distortion at 10mm moving gradually to a slight pincushion at 22m. Slight enough distortion for me to be happy with the results."

Have had some calibration/AF issues with the 200 f2.0 L lately, after my camera was serviced. So today in the heavy winds, cats&dogs rain, thick fog, I went out to see if I could find some birds to try.

First one here is uncropped (yes they were very close) at f2.0 2500 iso.

Next one also uncropped, f2.0 and 1250 iso.

it seems I have gotten the calibration right this time. Loving this lens again after hating it for a couple of weeks.

Very nice Viggo. Those photos look razorrrr sharp.

Thanks! Yeah, things are looking up. Still very difficult with the kids faces, especially now with bright colored jackets that zip up to the chin and beanies that go down to the top of the nose, lol. Combine that with Case 6 movements and NO depth and you have the recipe for destroyed-delete-button-thumb syndrome.

Love the images I get from the 1Dx. Early morning shot into the light, it catches focus somehow. This one is a slowish shutter speed to get some movement in the wings and water.

First of the day by Tom W W, on Flickr

THIS! Omg, this is the kind of shot you dream of getting close to. Choice of shutter, timing, and that gorgeous light, just wow!

Thanks Rpt and Skulker  ;D

Today I used the 1DX again. It is clear that it is easier to do manual focus with the 1DX. Whether that has to do with the quality of the viewer or the quality of the Ec-S focusing screen vs. the custom made 5DIII screen from Focusing Screens is not yet clear to me. Keeper rate with the 1DX is higher.

Never a new lens without a test on The Local Lion. As everyone can see, he is a very enthusiastic model :)

1DX, 1/4000s, f2.0, ISO100

Love that shot! And looks to be really nice bokeh at f2.0 also. Love everything about it! The colors are stunning. Do you make your own color profiles or which one do you use, if you use Lr.
