still JPG OOC with custom WB, and LR editing - a little trouble with skin tones/WB
Did have the anti-flicker function active for these shots - and it probably dropped fps to 6-7, writing to 2 cards (RAW to CF and JPG to SD) and had to do quick on-site edits in between sets to give to my editor....so this is as close to real - life sports shooting as you can get. When ACR recognizes these files, I may go back and push the post processing to see how much better it could have been, but given the fact I shot 400+ shots in 1 1/2 hours, then quickly picked 35 best and did quick edits on-site with my laptop, the JPGs were surprisingly usable. I shot RAW with my other bodies
and I'll post the 'comparisons' once the I can process the 7d RAW - just to keep it fair

I really like photographing wild bears. Shame I don't live anywhere near them!

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but I heard there were still some issues with the 70-200mm F2.8L II IS. For example, the lens does not mount tight against the body. Some owners experience some 'play' if the lens is gently twisted back and forth against the body. There were complaints that some of the lenses were not sharp compared to other 70-200 ... possible quality control issue with Canon(?). Does anyone know if these issues have been resolved? Are these issues a real concern?
I am also looking into purchasing the 70-200 F2.8L II but the shops here does not allow us to open the boxes to test the lens. If you want to open the box, you need to buy it. If you have problems, send it back to Canon. This is what they tell me. It would be nice to spend >$2200 on a lens and not have to worry about 'potential' problems. I guess it depends on your luck!
I've been looking over the shots from the speedway. There are so many that I like! The old 1Dx was great for getting focus in poor light.
So here's one more from that night, last on this thread I promise.

Hi North Star.
Could you kindly tell me if you copied the files from a CF card or an SD card? I've been looking for a solution to the same question & the Apple Camera Kit is only compatible with SD cards. Since I don't use a SD card, the other option - lightening to USB cable supposedly (internet tells me) can't power a card reader to copy content from CF card to iPad. And I want to avoid connecting my camera directly to the iPad ( even though thats possible with the charging turned off) if I can. Is there a way around?
Thanks for you help.
A few online:
I'm not planning on getting an iMac, but I hope the advent of large Retina displays means we'll see the return of the 17" MacBook Pro before mine gets too much longer in the tooth (but then, it's still running fine, and with the 960 GB SSD I put in it's quite snappy).

I am getting 70-200 f2.8 II for the same price as the following set 100 f2.8L, 135 f2 and 200 f2.8. I currently own a 60D and am planning to purchase the 7DII once it is available here in my country. What do you think is a better buy - the zoom or the set of primes? I love to shoot my kid (a very active toddler, her ballet recitals, outdoor sports, etc) and wildlife.
Would love to get opinion from folks here.
