Here is a photo i took in loch lomond :-) 5dmk3 + 24-70 L natural light

That is not how I remember Loch Lomond at all. I probably should go back there and recheck.
you never know what you will find in the middle of the road lol
Aye, now that's how I want to remember Loch Lomand!  :P

Ken, I assume you've been using the old trick?
You know, the old fish on your head and then keep very still....
Indeed!   ;D  My girlfriend doesn't appreciate the smell of my hair particularly but I come home with some decent images from time to time!    ::)

Nice pics Krob ... you are very lucky to have such beautiful birds in your area (of course it isn't just luck and you are very talented in getting those lovely pics) ... we hardly get to see any birds here, coz there are hardly any trees ... but the desert landscape is slowly changing here and we are getting to see some more birds these days.
Thank you so much Rienz!  I appreciate your kindness.  I do feel quite blessed often times out shooting for the wildlife we have surrounding us here.  Interestingly enough, many locals ask me often, "Where do you see all these birds at?"  I just laugh to myself really, thinking, stop what you're doing, take a look around!  They're everywhere!  :)

sharpness is a result of a properly focused image.

nonsense....
if the lens does not deliver the optical sharpness, no focusing will solve that.

It's nice of Sigma to actually deliver the USB dock, but the fact is Sigma should tighten up its QC process so we don't NEED to use the dock.


well canon should be the first then to make lenses that need no AFMA.  ::)
+1 on that, I was thinking the same thing!  If Sigma should be tightening up it's qc to avoid needing the dock, how much more at the price should Canon be tightening up their QC so we don't have to spend all that time MFA'ing our lenses?  I'm glad I can MFA my lens's.  If I had the Sigma, I'd probably be glad to have the dock!  ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D Rear Dial Cheap?
« on: May 04, 2013, 04:20:29 PM »
I have both the 7D and the 5D3 also.  I just went out shooting a couple days ago with my 7D slung over my left shoulder and the 5d3 over my right shoulder.

Interesting to say the least, As long as I've owned the 7d, close to 3 years, I've always found it to feel very good in the hand, loved the fit and finish and never had anything to say other than it was a great device and felt very top of the line with regard to build.

Having both, I notice the mechanical sound of the shutter is much louder on my 7D and the rear button doesn't feel quite as nice using it along side my 5d3 as it did in the days before I owned the 5d3.  That being said, I don't think it's terrible, just not quite as nice as the rear wheel on the 5d3. 

Of course the shutter now sounds a bit cheaper to me, although initially I thought the quieter sound of the 5d3 shutter sounded cheaper and more "toy like", I now prefer it to the click of the 7D shutter.  Silent mode is altogether a different thing but I'm not comparing that.

I feel that the wheel, the tactile feel, the responsiveness and the buttons are close to that of my 5D3 but just shy of being quite on the same caliber.  I've no issues with the set button on either and neither make any noise. 

I have no complaints about my 7D other than it now lives in the shadow of my 5D3 whose high ISO performance and IQ is immeasurably better!   Think I'm getting ready to trade my 7D for a bunch of Ben Franklins! ::)

Cheers!

Anhinga in Flight~ f/5.6 - 1/2500 sec - ISO 800

We see them often sunbathing or swimming, so I thought I'd throw one up of them flying, with his long pickerel smile!
