I never bought into the new pocket wizards after it became obvious early on that they were poorly designed. I had three of the plus version and they worked fine.

Mousing is really taxing on joints, here's one I got a few clients into-
It works amazingly, much better or just radically different position to work within.
They can measure AF speed, tracking ability, and if it works with live view, all in a lab.
Now please some of the detractors, design a lab-based BIF test. Of course the lab must be as big as a forest to be realistic, but with tightly-controlled lighting conditions everywhere. Oh, and it has to be reproducible of course, so you'd better think of how to convince the bird to keep flying back and forth the same path and at the same speed over and over again.
Curious to see how the OP made out. Can you let us know?
I have read that the 24-70mm f4L IS has less distortion than the old 24-70mm f2.8L, in addition to the Image stabilization and lighter weight so I am considering to get the IS version. I don't shoot much portrait and fast pace events so, I think the 4-stop IS may help me more on low light situations. I am just a hobbyiest, not a pro?
Thanks in advance for your comments.
I've had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands last year, and had to sell my 1D MK IV because of the pain holding it. This year, I suddenly have tendonitis. It likely comes from zillions of hours spent using a mouse to edit photos. I've ordered a ergonomic mouse, I have 2500 photos that I can't edit because of the pain.That is asking for a Darwin Award
Good stories, people, but I'm trying to collect some actual feedback about health problems in pro photography... I know every CR thread degrades into gibberish after 1-2 pages, but I wouldn't mind keeping the firsts posts on topic :-o
Also...he notes that his 200-400 is his favorite lens for shooting sports. I've been tempted by the new canon 200-400, but can't justify the cost.I actually did something like that. I saw a Nikon 200-400 advertised for $2500 on Craigslist here locally, and after two or three weeks, curiosity got the best of me and I asked about it. The seller was a local Doctor, and he had bought it for his son. His son never used it and had gone off to college. He told daddy to sell it. Daddy had no idea as to its value, he had paid $4500 for it, and just picked $2500 out of the air.
But....(I'm primarily a sport shooter)
I had an idea, what if I could pick up a second pro body and a 200-400 for about the same price as the canon 200-400 alone. ( my 5d3 is my current second body, but it's not nearly as good for sports as my 1dx)
