Have you had any first hand experience with either of the systems?

Well, I started with the 60D, got into birding, bought the 400mm f/5.6L, center point AI Servo, and have enjoyed the mobility and ease of use of this set-up in hiking to spot of interest, shooting birds in flight. I might have bought the 7D a year ago, but I kept putting it off - "7D2 coming soon".   ::)  I will keep using my beloved 400 5.6 on the 7D2, and will be working on saving for the 600 II. (My main purchase recently has been a "landscape and wildife support vehicle", otherwise known as my Subaru Forester commuting and camping car.) I don't have to be in a hurry - I like what I have now, and am learning fieldcraft.

Well done in getting transport sorted for hard to get areas - 7d2 with the 600 II should be an awesome combination.

Creating a brand for your photography is critical to allow you to price yourself to a respective degree. There are too many photographers who are willing to work for free just because they can or for the purpose of practice.

Great egret - 1D X +300 f/2.8 IS II + 2x III, handheld - I yanked it off the tripod while shooting an owl and caught this bird in the first light of the day with the sun just above the horizon.  An osprey with fish came a few minutes later but I wasn't fast enough!  f/6.3 1/2000s ISO 3200:




Lovely shot mackguyver - love the light.

Kids night time hockey practice in pouring rain. (High ISO)

f2.8,

ISO 12,800.

Great capture Menace. Love the water action and back light. 12fps helps  ;)

Cheers. 12fps and weather sealing! No way I could have captured the image with my 5DIII in that stormy weather.

Lovely image menace.

Thanks Dolina - I was wondering how the image would have looked if I had your 200 2.0?  An extra stop of light!  G.A.S!

Menace, hockey in New Zealand??  I would never have guessed that.

Great picture Menace

Thanks candyman - both the photographer and the camera was absolutely soaked, not to mention it's winter in down under.

But it was great fun - loved it.

Oh yes (field) hockey is pretty popular down under - my 8 year old belongs to a local club and loves it.
