kinda sorta waterscape. I got really lucky with the time of day on this tour at Hearst Castle.

Geez, you guys and your 5DIII's No one who wants to shoot sports primarily is ever going to be satisfied with a 5DIII. You need the high frame rate to maximize the chance to get the right shots - intense facial expressions, ball just leaving the hand, two faces and that sense of conflict and emotion, etc. that you can't get with proper timing alone. This is literally what the 1 series was designed for and y'all are telling him its not the right camera?
but anyway he said because the 5dm3 is not a sports camera. Wont give me the 10fps, is rugged but not as much since I told him some games are in the rain and i mean down pour.
It is very slow and the focus by wire manual AF isn't great, either, but not so slow as to be unusable. The trade off is exceptional image quality, and it is every bit as good as you've heard. If you don't need/want to shoot below f/2.8, the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II makes a lot more sense from a practicality standpoint, but it's those f/1.2-2 shots that are amazing.Quote from: Andrew Davies Photography

It focuses as quickly as you can turn the ring. Unless you're too lazy and use autofocus
BH Photo is still listing this as a pre-order, and it isn't even on Amazon (it always sends me to the -500mm). Where did you guys buy yours, and how long did you wait? I'm ready to pull the trigger.
Also, what size quick release plates are you using?
i'm using a P120
Actually I did read it, but I'm not wasting my time reading this new one. Try to help some people out, and they bite your head off. Irrational? Indeed...and you're extremely guilty of outright insulting me and trolling me, many times over. Again...I asked a simple question, how about a simple answer that is less than 100 words, with no insults and no whining? What is the reason you would not buy an A7r, to try for astrophotography? Is it the ghosting? I could understand that, if that's what it is. It can't be the cost, because we both know how upset you got when I suggested you would not "buy a $30k lens right this moment"...and you said you would, if you thought it would help your photography achieve new heights of greatness. You could also use the A7r for static bird photography, something a $1995 CCD imager couldn't do.
Just caught this guy out of the corner of my eye. Wasn't prepared for BIF at that moment. Some motion blur but not too bad.
