the RAW files, yes.

Yes, RAW.  Those are huge files!  My 5D3 files run 24-30mb, 240 images on an 8 gig card, approximately.

At 6:20 did he say the Nikon files are 70mb?

Looks great, same as what I'm getting.  Thanks for posting.

Boom, exchange.

Yes, confirmed, my 200/2 makes the noise in servo.  Rock the camera a bit to make the IS work hard and the noise gets worse. 

200/2 + 5D3 = around $10,000  Canon best get this fixed.

Did you try manual, how were the restults?  I have the same three flashes minus any soft boxes.  Once you dial it in in manual it's all good.

The +6 14-24 f2.8L would be expensive!

The 400/5.6 with 1.4TC and crop a little in to that awesome 5d3 and you'd be set.  But the lure of a 600/4 is tempting and sometimes you just have give in.  :)

Still, most of my bird photography is not done on vacation but is done almost every day.  My office is within walking distance of an area that has quite a few birds and I take walks there every day during lunch.  Therefore, whichever lens I pick up will likely be used at least twice a week.

Ok, I can't imagine you taking either of these lenses to work twice a week, especially the 600/4.  I think the 400/5.6 might be lighter, add the 1.4 tc or 2.0tc and boom.  Plus you have the 70-200.

I find the AF of the 50L to be much better on my 5D3 than it was on my 50D.  What body are you using?  I have both the 1.4 and 1.2 and they are both great, but they need to be used with a little care wide open.  The 50L is amazing when you hit it, and on full frame the bokeh and what I call 3D look are unique.

The dof at f1.2 is thin, so some shots are missed because of camera or subject movement, so shoot lots!

 *please remove suck from the title, they don't suck.

but I really like my 24mm/1.4L. It's neat to have a wide-angle with the ability to give serious bokeh.


Worth its price right there.
