A great lens indeed. I liked the 10-22 on crop better then I like the 16-35 2.8 II on FF.

Here an oldie (2007) taken from a driving car in the Serengeti. EOS 30D, EF-S 10-22 @12mm, ISO 200, 1/640, f/9


And another oldie (2010) from Yellowstone (I believe it was Mammoth Hot Springs). EOS 30D, EF-S 10-22 @10mm, ISO 100, 1/250, f/8

Yellowstone is indeed a stunning place. Every photographer should see it at least once in their lives.

The grandprismatic is very special, but so big that it is difficult to appreciate the full beauty from closeby. Some of the smaller pools in Yellowstone are easier to comprehend.

Lenses / Re: Would you buy the 35L now, or wait?
« on: August 25, 2014, 05:16:25 PM »
I would not buy it. I am in the market for a 35mm as well and will probably go for the f/2 IS. Main reasons to choose this over the 1.4L or the Sigma is size, second is price. My main use will be for street photography.

Main down for me of the f/2 IS is the lack of weather sealing. The slower f-stop does not bother me too much. I like the bokeh of the f/2 IS more than that of the 1.4's even though there is less oof blur. For street work, the IS comes in handy when shooting in the evening as you can do more handheld.

What will be the main use for the 35 you are after?

Great series Helmi! (also on your Flickr) I have tried to get some in flight shots myself, but that ain't easy for sure! During my attempts they were so fast (with changing direction) that I could not even get them in my viewfiender, let alone get them in focus! Any tips you may have?

EOS Bodies / Re: Are These The EOS 7D Mark II Specifications?
« on: August 22, 2014, 04:03:48 PM »
Let's see what the final specs AND the final performance (noise, DR) will be.

I had expected a big higher MP count (around 24) and had hoped for a bit higher ISO range. Butbstill, 10 fps with 61 AF poits can be a very good camera for birding, if noise is improved over the 7D1 and if the price is right (around 6D price).

Very nice shot Vossie.
