I'm grumpy because it's Sunday night and I have to go to work tomorrow

The 70-300L is not a slide barrel zoom, it's a rotation zoom.
I'm not sure having a 70-200L and a 70-300L zoom lens is the way to go. If you want to keep your 70-200L, I would personally either get the 100-400L or the 300 f/4L prime lens. If you want the 70-300L zoom, you might consider selling the 70-200L lens.
I would agree with most of this. However the 70-300 is no where near as sharp as the 70-200. Just because there is overlap on the focal length don't expect the images to be as good with the 70-300. I would not take the advise of selling the 70-200 to get the 70-300.
Buying a 300 f/4 prime is a great suggestion though and this lens works well with the 1.4x converter.
Thanks, but not really useful. There's "lots and lots and lots", "lots and lots", and "lots" of money. I'm trying to use the least number of "lots". If I had unlimited amounts of money, I'd be on the GOP presidential ticket and wouldn't need this group's advice. I would buy the entire Canon and Nikon lens lines and all 3 or each's top DSLRs. Unfortunately, I have to watch my Benjamins.
Oh just buy it already
Ok, Mr. Smarty-Pants, which would you pick - 1DIV plus 500 II, or 600 II to use with 1D X?
The 1DZ (or should that be the 1DY?) is coming soon, folks. Remember, you heard it here first.
Z would of course stand for 'Zenith' but if it's a Y then we can hear the echo of fans reiterating 'Y So Late?'
I will be looking forward to seeing those partially non-mirroless cameras
Been in stock every time I've checked over the past 3 days. So far, I've resisted temptation.
I love the way he calls the body a 1D-(SE)X. I tend to agree with him. Had a photoshoot today, everyone was grumbling and reaching for their tripods and flashes in very low light situations, whereas I was happily snapping away at 12800 ISO...
I fire a 3-4 shot burst on every shot I take. That way at least 1 or 2 will be spot on. If you depend on one shot in any Canon DSLR's AI Servo mode, the hit rate with something this challenging will be less than 70%, in my experience. So switch to AI Servo, "L" burst rate, which is 3 max. Or you can select "H" and shoot say, 4 shot bursts. I've found this to be superior to tracking cases and hit rates.
Yeah, I have it at 12fps, and I would usually shoot off 2-4 shots of a small event, like a surf-trick, but I like to get better at tracking and understand really how to set up the gear and how to track for best possible results. And many of the shots from today were just ONE shot, and they were still perfectly focused, and with the shortened relase-lag , it's hard to miss with this incredible camera. But I can always improve!
