A greylag goose from closeby.

5D3, ISO 200, f/2, 1/2000, natural light, uncropped

There appears to be no thread for this older Sigma yet. I have had this lens for over a decade and do not use it very often (certainly now that I got the 100L last year). It is quite big and heavy, but does have a nice working distance and I like the bokeh.

Its the rather big caterpillar of the Privet Hawk Moth, found in my backyard.

5D3, ISO1250, 1/200, f/10, natural light from tripod

Shot this Kingfisher last year with a (rented) 600 f/4 IS II and 1.4x III. Surely my favorite bird. I was lucky to get up very close, the images are uncropped! No tripod was used on this shot, but I did use a pile of branched as a hide and for support.

ISO 1250, f/5.6, 1/500

ISO 1600, f/10, 1/250

Thank you Dylan!

Here is 2 more of the same model (my youngest daughter).

5D3 with 40mm 2.8, 1/1250, f/2.8, ISO100

5D3 with 100mm 2.8L, 1/125, f/2.8, ISO800

@ Tanispyre, I agree that the colors on the flower image are a bit too cold. There wasn't much light left when I took the shot, but you're right I need to work on it a bit more. Thanks.

Always a joy to pull out and use.

Nice image Dustin! Here's one of the same type of flower taken fom a bit further away in the Austrian Alps.

5D3 with 100L macro, f/9, 1/125, ISO100, handheld in natural light.

And here's one taken with the same combo of (I believe) a horsefly.

f/6.3, 1/160, ISO800, handheld in natural light.

I have started to explore a bit with street photography this summer. Like the shorty forty a lot for that and because of its size its no effort to carry your camera along. On some occasions it's slightly narrow for street, so will be looking at a 35mm soon (likely the f2 IS).

5D3 with shorty forty @f/2.8, ISO800, 1/5000, natural light, desaturated and vignette added in post. My wife was the model here :)

A little bug in my garden. Taken with 5D3 and 100mm 2.8L macro.
10 shots at f/5.6, 1/40, ISO800 in natural light taken with RRS macro rail.

What is professional? For me the only difference between an amateur and a professional photographer is that the latter one makes money with photos.

Exactly. A pro does it for a living. Some pro's shoot with 1D series, some shoot with xxxD series.

I do agree though with jrista that having many dedicated buttons typically allows for more rapid adjustments of settings compared to touchscreens.

I am really curious to see the final specs and performance of the 7D2. I now have only 1 body, and I would be interested in a 2nd body to cpmplement by 5D3. I would be really interested in a APC-C body with ~20-someting MP, 5D3 like AF, ~10 fps and ISO performance that is max 1 stop worse compared to the 5D3 if it would be priced similar to the 6D.
