Thanks rpt northstar and jarrieta

Setting: 1/400 f/8.0 800mm ISO 160 EOS 1D IV

It is actually my mother's grandmother who passed away in the mid-90s so I met her in my teens. Lovely lady, cemented me on my place in the world and gave me a context on who I am.

Thanks :)

Provided weight is a concern I'd take the 5D III, 24-105 and the nifty fifty.

Also, above, plus if you think you'll need longer reach and have funds available, consider getting a 70-200 f4 IS (that can be sold when you get back)

Far as I can tell, everyone's name is still the same color RED so we're all still equal on a pretty fundamental level, eh?   ;)

Except for the Black Sheep who have left the group without removing their posts.  Their name is colored Black. ;)

Hi Mt Spokane Photography,

Look forward  to seeing you becoming the 2nd CR Geek.

I came to my senses too late and shot an extremely blurry out of focus pic...  it haunts me! :(

Hi adhocphotographer,

I recently met the said bear (we are in the same theropy group) - he is equally haunted by the miss.

He worked on that act for the last two hibernation seasons only for it to work too well and scare the sh*t out the tourists.

Now, whenever he sees any photographers, he just marks his territory in full view, sighs and walks away.

oh dear, EOS M2. Is that a bad sign given I've never even seen the camera for sale anywhere?

Keep posting to leave M2 behind  ;)

Lenses / Re: Breaking GAS

So, I've tried to have a lens free year this year...  2013 was a big GAS year, so this year i was trying to break it...  And i've failed...  BIG time. I've just ordered a 500mm F/4 L IS II....  I guess in GAS terms, this is drug/drink equivalent of a month long bender?

It would appear when i go cold turkey the pent up GAS eventually explodes spectacularly....  I think it is better for smaller GAS release for me.

Ha ha - Enjoy (Once things settle down after the explosion) :)

If you are not in a hurry then might be worth waiting for the possible announcement of the 100-400L in the near future.

I am amazed how many poor images are posted on this thread . ( especially by those who consider themselves experts in their opinion !)

Okay - anyone going to bite?
