Not my best shot, it was difficult focusing threw the branches had to go manual and my eyes aren't what they used to be.
But I know where he lives now so there's always the opportunity for improvement .

 For lies perpetrated by his relative Punxsutawney Phill on February 02 , and encroaching on my property I declare a sentence of banishment if he is ensnared in the live trap or death if I see him foraging in my yard while I have easy access to a gun.
Either way he's a marked dirtpig .

 The next time he gets shot, it will not be with a camera !

Here's a few examples of long time exposures with the B+W .


 The last photo has the color cast intact , it's not terrible .
If you do decide to go with the screw on filter, don't forget to purchase some stop-down rings so you can use it on other lenses !

Gorgeous shots. I feel inspired to use my ND filters more.
Do you need 10 stops to accomplish this? Can you make do with 6 stops ND?

Opinions?

 I usually shoot 30 second or longer but to get the effect in the above photos it's probably overkill.  Depending on the rate of movement of the subject ( in this case water.) you could get the same misty, foggy results at shorter exposures. Clouds on the other hand tend to move slower so take more time to capture movement.

 I've been using it on a 17-40 L and 24-105 L with no problem.  (and can actually focus using live view ).  No issues with  vignetting on this lens , I'm pretty pleased with the B+W black glass .

 I'm slightly confused, maybe someone can clear this f8 focusing thing up for me.
When I use my Sigma 50-500mm f/4.5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM with a 2X converter my widest usable aperture is effectively f13 and the auto focusing works fine.

 Am I missing something ?

Lenses / Re: I have just lost confidence with Canon Rumors & B&H

 On the bright side, because of this thread I was prompted to compare prices on a purchase of a 70-200 2.8 L II I made on 3/17 .
 Thanks to B&H 's policies I just got a $30.00 kickback.
The customer service as always to my experience at B&H was great. The guy gave me a choice of a refund or store credit, I chose the later as I know I'll be a return customer many times in the future .

 That's kind of pricey , but on the bright side I'm sure they will knock off a few bucks if you get it as a kit lens with the new 7D mkII .  :P

 Same here, but I'm happy with it none the less .

 The Carryspeed viewfinder I mentioned in an earlier post came today, I have to admit I'm pretty impressed .  It's a straightforward design and I had it on the camera in moments with no need for reading the directions. ( A preview of the video before it arrived was very helpful .) 
 This viewfinder does work with a battery grip although you'll have to make one tweak .
Using a phillips screwdriver to pull one screw and flipping the vertical adjustment bars gives it enough reach to fit quite nicely with the grip.

 The view is sharp and I must admit thanks to the adjustable diopter I no longer have to fish around my pockets looking for reading glasses to see live view.   
 By the way, kudos to the guy who started this thread , if I hadn't read this I wouldn't have researched looking for a deal nor found this little gem of an item .
