This particular shot is just fantastic...would you care to describe how you got this shot?

Hey everybody :)

Got my 24-70 mk II yesterday, no clicking at all.

From Canon Europe though

Zoom ring is a bit tighter than I imagined it would be though
Mine too, tight like my 24-105.  I was expecting it to be more like my 70-200 II or 16-35 II.  Maybe has something to do the with the design of external zooming to maintain weather seal.

The stiffer zoom is a little disappointing to me as well.   I also was hoping for it to be more like my 70-200.

Tawny Frogmouth with baby. A week ago, I found the body of one chick, on the ground, beneath this nest. Fortunately, they had a second one to show off :)
5D3 with 300mm f4 + 1.4x TC

Nice shot!  At first glance I didn't even notice the baby in the shot. 

I wish I could blend in that well with my couch when the wife comes looking for me to do some chores...chuckle.

Nice! Monopod isn't enough?  :)

monopods can get in the way

I know for sports, I much prefer to hand hold my 300 2.8, easier to track, especially for football and if going up and down sidelines too.

Totally agree

Just watched the imax 3d space movie that included some pretty good info on the Hubble space telescope...awesome tech. 

I'm hoping a smaller version of the Hubble is coming from canon in 2014...ef mount "L" of course....red ring optional.

Anyone see that video of the photog butting heads with an aggressive male elk for 7 minutes in Oct 2013 in the Smokey Mountains Park? I was worried about him, but it turns out OK. Scarey :o

Here is a link to the video.

Wow..that guy could've been seriously hurt....not very smart.

first L glass purchase! just ordered this from b&h. :D :D :D

you'll love it!  congrats!

Congrats to the new buyers of this great lens!

It truly is a fantastic lens if you need to shoot in the 70-280 range (awesome still with the 1.4x)

Canon used to be the undisputed leader of designing novel AF lenses.  This is the company that gave us the TS-E 17/4L, 50/1.0L, 85/1.2L, MP-E 65/2.8, 135/2L, 200/1.8L, and 400/4L DO IS, among other amazing technologies.  But all we see these days are uninspiring, conservative, incremental designs.  Nothing that pushes the envelope, nothing that makes us feel like we just *have* to try this lens because it will let us get the shot that no other lens can.

I think the new 200-400 w/ built in extender is, in your words, a "novel" lens that  "pushes the envelope ".  8)

Silica gel packs can help.  These are cheap and help control moisture....throw a couple in your camera bag to help maintain a dry mini micro climate.

I'm from the north and I deal with this issue frequently....don't sweat it too much.   Eml's suggestion of slowly making the temp change helps.
