On the High ISO, my experience was that on the 5DMK III 1600 ISO was about where I felt Maximum IQ/Grain was achieved, anything Higher and the Grain was starting to impact too much on IQ.

With the 1Dx I found I could push to ISO 5000 to achieve a similar result, at night the brighter viewfinder on the 1Dx was a big advantage.

But most of my 70-200f/2.8 II work was done on the 5DMK iII, these two seem made for each other.

White Rhino: 5DMK III 70-200f/2.8 II, Shot @ f/4 & 1/5000th ISO250

Bad Boy: 5DMK III 70-200f/2.8, Shot @ f/8 & 1/200th ISO1600 + 600EX RT (Set at -3 & 200mm)
I love your rhino shot! B&W makes all the difference from my perspective. No confusion. All one sees is the rhino in this pic (and the baby  :) ) . If it were in colour there would be brown, green, blue and some white and the eye would wander...

Having said that, I am a fan of all of your shots. They are great!

Because if I draw a rock and a tree, I have to label them so you can tell which one is the tree.
Same here. In the seventh grade I drew a bird and people thought it was a frog! This way if they think a bird is a frog it is their eyesight that is in question :)

I love tack sharp, so my fav is the large eye.

I love that shot too.

Lenses / Re: Speedy Manual Focusing?

I miss the AE-1 split prism every time I try to focus manually.

+1000
I really miss it. Oh! The other day I loaded film into my AE-1 and shot a few pictures. The funny thing is that I have got so used to seeing the image on the LCD screen, that after every image I took on the AE-1, I turned the camera and ended looking at the backplane! LOL! And that is where I keep the tab of the film roll paper box that identifies the ISO and the number of shots. It was hilarious.

This is such a great little vacation lens! And, according to FoCal, the second sharpest lens in my bag ahead of some L glass and my 50mm macro...

Here are some Jeepneys waiting at the ferry landing in Sabang... They always make me smile - like a Pixar film - I can just imagine them talking... ;D

Nice colors ... I like it  :)
Yes, fabulous!

Central Washington this past Saturday night, was looking to shoot the Northern Lights...ended up with this creepy cabin:

Pretty nice consolation prize - that's a cool image!

I think so too!  The forecast was very un-optimistic, I almost didn't drive out there.  Really glad I did!
My 2c - it's a lovely picture. Not a consolation prize. :)

Why do you breathe.
Absolutely!

And because it is there (to be photographed)

BR RS7. I will never go back to neck straps. Come to think of it, I used the neck strap as a shoulder strap several times before getting the BR.
