Looking forward to both reviews - I really like that both of you focus on real-world use of the gear.

I agree with you, chart tests are too limited.

Anybody care to venture a guess as to what happened to the birds in flight in this image?  ;)

OK I'll bite
When's a reflection not a reflection?..... when the source is missing  :o

The only solution I've come up with is that the UFO on the far left has death rayed the lower bird and is levitating it up to the mother ship to perform some hiddious experiments on  the poor thing.

....... that might be wrong  ???

LOL...not quite. 

Someone must know what happened with this crazy bird in flight image???

Looks like an atmospheric reflection, a mirage.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: FF Sharper than crop?
« on: February 27, 2014, 06:29:50 PM »
Hey guys!
So I noticed on the digital-picture website iq comparison tool that FF seemed always sharper than a crop sensor.
http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=486&Camera=736&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=486&CameraComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=0
Are there any physical explanations for this phenomenon?
I am new to this so....

I believe he also frames the shot the same so you are shooting from a greater distance with a crop camera.

So you're saying there's a chance...   ???

What it says is there is a definite probability of a possible maybe.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II Coming in March? [CR1]

... my only fear is what most CR headlines will be about once it's actually released, maybe the rumored 5d4?

Maybe the main page headlines.  The forum topics will mostly be about how bad the IQ of the 7DII will be, due to poor DR at low ISO, FPN, etc...all before its even released.  Once it hits store shelves, Aglet will take one shot with the lens cap on, push the exposure four stops, and declare the 7DII to be DOA, which will lead to the inevitable proliferation of predictions of Canon's imminent demise.   

On a serious note, if the 7DII is Nessie, what does that make the 100-400 II?  A Sasquatch-Yeti-Martian hybrid living in Area 51?
Now that I have a long lens, I need a new body for my quest to take a picture of Bigfoot. Since the naysayers will undoubtably pronounce the af and iq as garbage, this will be the perfect camera. After all, who wants a picture of Bigfoot that isn't out of focus?

ROFL, well done Neuro and Don.

The two look close but the tail feathers to me looks like a Ferruginous hawk.

Hmm. The tail feathers on the one I pictured are clean and light colored, without the band. (I have other images on my blog, which I think I linked.) The tail feathers of my bird kind of grade into darker tips, but there isn't that dark band like adult Rough-leggeds have...looking at Sibley, it might actually be a Juvenile Rough-legged Hawk. At least, given the illustration, a juvi is the closest match of all (closer than either an adult Rough-legged or an adult Farruginous.)

Part of the problem with identifying these hawks is they often have so many intermediate morphs. Red-tailed are the worst...they have more than half a dozen regional morphs, and quite a few of them end up here in Colorado. Trying to ID a Red-tailed is a mind bender.

I agree with you on the Red-tailed Hawks.  So many morphs and they interbreed muddying the waters even more.

Beautiful shot Jon.  I believe it is a Rough-legged Hawk.  The dark wrist feathers are my clue.

Hmm, are you sure? I thought Rough-legged hawks had darker underwings...

Yes, here is one I capture recently.
