OK, ... I pushed it  ;D :-X

I don't think that you'll regret it! I haven't had much chance to use mine yet, but the several times I have I have been extremely pleased with the sharpness.

It's always a possibility that I did misconstrue Sell174, and if I did you have my apology for my flippant remark.

I believe Sanj's motivation re this new Thread though may rather have been just to start a thread regards a new & very interesting Lens, the 200-400f4.

If you had taken the time to look at some of Sanj's other Posts, you would have found that Sanj doesn't look for the "Ohhs " Aghs", like most of us he's looking for positive critique and engagement regards the subject, the Lens, and to a lesser degree, the Images.

Your comments I've noticed Sella174 are often critical and acerbic, but definitely not always as I notice you have excellent technical input at times, I've not noticed any Posted Images (you may well have & I've simply not noticed), but that's fine of course just a little unusual that someone critiques an-others Images without first offering up some of their own for evaluation.

Saying "Sorry" when you dump on someones Images in the guise of being "helpfully critical" doesn't lessen the harshness of the criticisms, it's still painful to receive.

I'de like to suggest that you could have made the comments re "poorly cropped, angled etc etc" without being quite so offhandedly brusque.

But this is simply my opinion, feel free to ignore it completely, try though to keep in mind when your dealing with Peoples Images any critique aught to be considered, positive & thoughtful, just a view of course.

Every time I use the 1Dx with the 85 f1.2, I just get excited about photography all over again. I'm going to spend the rest of my life trying to get better at it.

And you could even try going higher under high school stadium lights. ISO 12,800, 1/1250 sec. @ f3.2, 1Dx, EF 70-200 f2.8 L II, JPEG SOOC (except for being cropped to 8x10 and downsized to 200ppi).

Finally had a break in the weather, and the butterflies were taking the opportunity to drink some of the water. I ran out quickly with the 180mm f3.5 macro lens. All handheld at ISO 400 - I would have much preferred to use a tripod, but was afraid that they'd fly away by the time I could get it set up.

The problem was that there was just one set of underwear ;)

Ahhhh, missed that, now the whole thing makes sense.

But I'm sitting in an Airport Lounge after a 11 Hour flight with another 13 Hours to go, just about anything makes sense.

If there was only one set of underwear ?? what was the other Lassie wearing while the other lassie was wearing the underwear ??

Starting to see why Bornshooters Body was damaged

Not shot with a 1dx but a war wound lol slipped and i fell knocking the 1dx into a rock my st-e3 took some scrapes too.
Ouch! I hope that you came out with less of a wound than the camera. You can always claim that it happened during hazardous duty.

Great action shots ELi72 - That's Ray Emery in net for the Blackhawks correct? He came from my home town, he brought home the cup this week.
Yes, that was Ray Emery - he played well in that game (1-0 shutout). Sorry he didn't get to play any in the Cup finals, but he still got his name on the Cup.

And then there's always the moon. 200-400 f4L/1.4 @ 560mm, ISO 400, 1/800 sec. @ 5.6.

Excellent shot, I tried a few of these last tip to Africa (We don't see the Moon so much in Singapore & Jakarta), to get it right, as you've done, is a lot harder than most People think, well done, amazing detail.

And congrats on the 200-400, what are your impressions ??
Thanks. As I mentioned earlier, I haven't had a chance to shoot more than about 50 shots with it because it's been raining here so much. So far, I'm really impressed with the sharpness wide open. I haven't tried to track any moving objects, but hope to get out soon to do some of that. I do not think that I'd want to handhold it for very long because it is pretty heavy. I'm certainly inspired by the shots that you got on safari.

And sometimes I do get to shoot outdoors. The first two were with the 300 f2.8L, ISO 200, 1/4000 @ f3.2, and the others were with the 70-200 f2.8L II, ISO 200, 1/5000 sec. @ f3.2.

I can't compete with Edward's wildlife or Bornshooter's women, but I do enjoy shooting sports, especially hockey. The two from the Predators-Blackhawks game were shot with the 200 f2.8L II, ISO 2000, 1/1250 sec. @ f3.2. The two from the Lightning-Panthers game were shot with the 70-200 f2.8L II, ISO 2500, 1/2000 sec. @ f3.5.

Has everyone else's 1Dx stopped working ????
I think that all of us are in awe of your pictures! In addition, I've been wanting to get out and try the 1Dx/200-400 combo, but ever since the lens finally got here it's been raining in Atlanta or I've been busy at work so I haven't been able to. I went out two days ago to see if I could catch some shots of the squirrels and chipmunks around the house, and of course they were nowhere to be seen while I was outside - and then it started to rain again.
