Very happy with my Blackrapid 7  - highly recommended.

Re wait, you'll get used to it. I used to think it was heavy too (years ago) but it feels like a feather weight after hand holding my 1Dx + 400 2.8 II !

Shot some women's volleyball yesterday...tough sport to shoot because the net/players always seem to be in the way, and they tend to move quickly and unexpectedly.   But also a fun sport to watch.

1dx and 300 2.8IS
f2.8
1/800th
ISO5000

Nice one Northstar :)

Went to the Balboa Beach last weekend with 5d III + 40pancake. At the end, it took 4 bottles of drinking water to rinse off ocean water and sand.

Lovely images - Well done :)

That should be your new avatar - that monkey sure looks Menac[ing] to me!  Cool photo - hope you didn't get bit!

Ha ha - Thanks mackguyver. I was well away from his reach (560mm focal length) :)

Thought I was looking into a Mirror at first, Love the shot, sort of Planet of the Apes look, mean & ready to Kick Butte.

Thanks eml58 - you are right of course as he looks a bit mean!

400mm + 1.4x, f4.0, 1/800, ISO800.

Very nice Menace. Love the light.

Surfing forecast is good this week in california. I'll spend few more days at the beach. Hope to get few decent shots - perfect timing to learn surfing photography.

Thanks Dylan.

Will be using a drop in polarising filter at the beach?  Look forward to the pics.

Yes, polarising filter is almost required shooting surfers. It was recommended by eml58 when I 1st got my 300mm f2.8 IS II. Too much reflection when the sun @ high.

Cool. I always keep mine in the bag with me.

Congrats - you'll LOVE it.

There is no way I could hand hold the previous version but its so much easier with the II - even with the 1.4x III attached.

Really looking forward to seeing some of your shots soon as you get this beauty.

Well done again :)

Actual shipping date: Sometime in 2020

Ha ha - really hope not!
I'm sure it'll happen that way. Notice how many rumored lens replacements have been posted on CR? They've been rumored to come out every quarter or so for a few years already.

So I expect very much that a new lens will be out by 2020 or even 2019 for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Well I really resisted getting a used one from my local Canon dealer despite being in near new condition as I'm not in desperate need of native 800mm range at present.

Mind you, tomorrow if a job requires it, it will be a different story  ;)

It's been a while since anyone's posted to this thread, so here are a couple of recent shots:

Who say's it's not a landscape lens?  The humidity dulled these a bit, but they still came out well:




Or macro lens (sorry if this a repost):


Also, you need to have f/2.8 for this kind of shot - along with a lot of patience to get all three to look at me at the same time:




Lovely series - well done :)
