Thanks.  I used a EF 70-200 f/4L IS for both photos (no teleconverter).

Animal Kingdom / My new 7d (a few sample photos)

Well I took advantage of Adorama's sale and picked up a new Canon 7d last week ($1199).  I finally got a chance today to snap a few photos.  I had a family of cardinals move into my backyard this spring and figured they'd be the perfect subjects.  Snapped these two pics of a male this morning.

Coming from a T2i, I have a bit of learning to do, but I'm quite happy with my first few attempts.

The June edition of What Digital Camera (interactive magazine) reviewed both the Mark III and the D800 and gave them equal scores of 92%.  For what it's worth, they also reviewed the Sony A57 and gave it a 90%.

Yeah nice photos for sure.

Here's a couple I took with my Tamron 70-300mm.  I wish it had a bit more reach.  I think some of the ducks in the first photo look like decoys, but I can assure you they are not.

WOW, great photos folks!

Here's a goldfinch visiting my neighbors feeder.  Snapped this yesterday with my T2i and a Tamron 70-300

Animal Kingdom / A day in the marsh

My first photo post so please be gentle.  I took these photos the last couple of weekends in a marsh not far from my home.  All photo were taken with a Canon T2i with a Tamron 70-300 attached (I'm working on getting some better equipment).  ;)

Lenses / Re: !00mm macro L or non L
« on: April 02, 2012, 04:13:53 PM »
I have the 100m non L and the Tamron 90mm macro and I enjoy both lenses.
If you're going to do a lot of non-tripod work, I agree with the other that the added expense of the L with IS is probably worth it.
