The weight is a habit with the 1dx + 200 f2, the results from it makes it lighter
Yes, results like that are very 'bearable'
And very cute lady model there too

Quick update: went to local camera shop today(by myself this time) looking for a backpack to fit 24-70 II and 70-200 combo. Some how, my American Express got charged @ $6,000ish
Local camera shop has one left - display unit. My freshly brand new 1DX should arrive next tues or wed - with 3yrs Canon US warranty for less than $6200
Hope the wife is not reading this thread...
Thanks all, I have about a thousand images of him, so I could feed you for a long time. And with the risk of being boring, here´s one more.
It is "bokeh panorama" or so called Brenizer method. Google for that, if you don't know abaut it.
I made 40 shots with 200 mm at f/2.8. Subject was covered with 4-5 shots in landscape composition. Other shots were made around the subject. That final image is cropped a lot, because some of the shots were not overlapping, thus, when I make a panorama, the output was in 2 separate images.
Would you return it?
I was thinking it would affect retail if I wanted to sell it on in the future.
I would, for that reason.
After getting some money together I bought the EF 70-200mm F2.8 IS L MKII.
Upon arrival the lens seems great but upon further inspection there is a rather large piece of dust, I say dust it is reflective. It is in the back of the lens looks between the 1st and second element.
It doesn't effect the IQ nor does it show up at all by shooting a longer exposure as a dust mark.
Im just a little disappointed after spending so much for it to arrive like this. I have a 70-20mm L 2.8 and is 20 years old and has no dust inside it so how does a brand new one have it?
Am I being over the top? Or should I be sending it back. Kind of taken the shine off the new purchase.
Here is the pic comments and opinions welcome.
Whilst photographing a lion, I turned around and spotted this cupe couple taking a selfie - couldn't help myself!
Showed them the pic and they loved it too.
Cameras are awesome devices, but they don't work by magic. Knowing a little bit about how the body and lens interact can be helpful in understanding and evaluating potential problems. The body detects how much out-of-focus an image is and sends a signal to the lens to adjust it, in one go in case of phase AF.
A bit of positive news from my side, for once! The replacement 50 Art seems okay. I'm not ready to give it the all clear, but three days and 1500 images and I haven't really had a missed shot that wasn't to be expected or my fault. It tracks nice, no crazy misses and sharpness is there for all the shots.
Can't wait to hear from Eldar and what his 50 Art replacement is like.
This place is definitely on my future travel plans.
I checked the website but didn't see any flyers for Photography specifically, the arrangement you had was with an external 3rd Party ??
Did you go on your own or participate in their photo course with Tom Svensson?I attended the course. That way you get a lot closer to the animals and you have access to them ouside of regular working hours. It's worth every cent.
