I have used my 100-400L @400mm as a "landscape" lens when I was shooting some of the features at the Grand Canyon. So yes. But I mostly use it for birding...For me, wider angle lenses seem to be the choice for landscapes, but every now and then a long lens is usefull, things like trees and grasses on the other side of a pond, or other places not easily accessable.... so my comment is yes, it is usefull, depending on what you wish to shoot.I've been eyeing the Canon 400mm f5.6 L lens for a little while now. I love the sharpness of the lens and that it's a bargain for it's range.
Would this lens make for an interesting landscape lens or it mainly for birds and sports?
A lot of people use deep telephoto's for landscapes; I however, am not one of them...but don't let my style dissuade you.
+1More Heron fishing from today. Six duck pirates quickly raided us and refused to leave, stealing most of the bread. Heron still caught about 6 tilapia, 2 big ones. The biggest one he stabbed (I've never seen him stab a fish, before he always grabbed them like using chopsticks). It fought vigorously, getting away once, was quickly recaptured, and then, finally escaping back into the water.
7D, 100-400L, f/7.1, ISO 320, handheld
Great pictures Serendipidy. Keep doing photo of your heron friend. It's always a pleasure to look at them.
There is a currently running Post re "Canon Sensors" that is both informative and interesting, the fact that it is currently at Page 2 and moving forward in a Positive & Informative manner is due entirely to the fact that this particular chap has been removed from CR.I wondered about that. Now it makes sense why the thread is still alive and informative.
Amazing! That is the exact look my dog cuddles gives my mother-in-law when she wants dog biscuitsAnd three more, could be much better, I know, but I have taken a lot of worse photos
Hah! Love that last shot! Looks like my cat when she's begging for a morsel.
I got a chance to shoot a bday party, baby portrait, corp event. And wondering where do I go from here.I liked your pictures but macro for the baby? Very confused! Could you explain?
Started a site (work in progress) but just not sure where to invest next for props advertising etc. any suggestions would be helpful
Could have used props for the baby. Could have used a macro for the baby but want to spend my money wisely. Gear is in my sig.
And finally, the stare from about 8 feetFantastic pictures!
Serindipidy, I'm a little confused. The bread you buy is for other birds, I take it, since you said the heron doesn't eat it. So it's a true friendship, assuming he doesn't get anything to eat from you??I think he baits the fish with the bread too.
Amazing how animals and humans bond.
get the kenko tubes. They are relative cheap and give a wide range of extension stacking options+1 on that!
Lovely shot.Mountain Goat on Quandary Peak, Summit County, Colorado (5D Mk II with 400mm F4L DO IS)
Awesome shot, Doc! He's bringing you a flower!
Lovely shots. All of them. As usual
The Performing Bear shot is an iconic Polar Bear Pose.
Could have come straight from Fox's Glacier Mints !
It was shot @ 200mm on the 200-400f/4, I was backing down the side of the vessel trying to get the Bear + Berg in the Picture, I had my 70-200f/2.8 set up on the other 1Dx Body but didn't want to change Cameras at this Point, others onboard got the larger Picture which looked good as well, but at times this Lady performed like she was Circus Trained, amazing stuff to see in the Wild. Fortunately my Lad was with me & got the whole thing on Video.
Ha! Ha! Ha! I am sure Paul will have something to say about thatQuote from: eml58Huge apology RPT, Being an Aussie we generally call Brits similar but possibly worse things, terribly sorry, wont happen again.Hey! I am indian! We have a 250 year old bone to pick with the Brits. I don't care what you call them. You can call them French or Irish for all I care
You would have to apologise to sporgon, Paulwalnut et all...
When the ashes are on, I am on the Aussie side. Has not been fun the last few times though...
Paulwalnut ? He's Scottish for heavens sake ! Why do you think Hadrian built his wall ??
I purchased the kenko extension tube set last year and have been really happy with them despite:ETTR or manual exposure.
more ISO noise
more light required to get proper exposureYup! Light 101 - the intensity of light is inversely proportional to the square of the distance... So expect that to happen.
more sensor dustDon't know about that...
losing infinity focusYup! So only works for macro work...
You might also want to look into a macro focusing slider.+10000! You may want one that moves along two axis. If you ask neuro he'd say get the RRS one...
Here are a few pics i took with the kenko tubes and the 5D II + canon 100mm 2.8 USM macro lens.Lovely!
