2) Whom they are going to sell EF-S 10-22 to now? (To the guys who crave for 7DII? No chance! Since all of them are bird-shooters who do not care about UW.)

Hey I have a 7D and crave the 7DII, shoot birds and have the 10-22. ;D

Very inventive post.  A nice laugh, too.  Thanks for posting.

67mm threads.  There are adapters available for slightly different thread sizes.


I must be the only photographer who relly doesn't care much for Adobe's newest releases. Their recent products have fallen foul of bloat ware and I really don't expect any new headline features to grab me.
I'm a use of Lightroom, but their latest release doesn't work on Windows Vista....which is still supported by Microsoft. So why should I have to upgrade my OS just for an Adobe product?
I have various machines, Vista 64x, Win 7 64x and Win 8 64x...but the newest Adobe LR installer won't run on my Vista box....sigh....I'm bored of this....

Vista???  You are not missing much.  Vista was just a step ahead of WindowsME... On the turd meter, Vista was a double flush... Seriously... Compared to Vista, Windows 7 is a dream... There is a reason Windows 98 lasted a decade and Vista was flushed as soon as they could.  Granted Vista was slightly better than Windows ME, but that is not saying much

Actually Win 7 and Win 8 / 8.1 are built on a Vista engine....neither are new products.
Vista was Win NT 6.0, Win 7 is Win NT 6.1 and Win 8 is Win NT 6.2
There hasn't been a new OS since Vista, all the new ones are shell cometics and a few functional updates. Plus marketing and branding. If microsoft wanted to, they could easily have released a service pack to update Vista to either or the new Operating Systems. There is more commonality between them then there are differences.

Given the performance gains over Vista they are worthy updates.

    I don't think 7DII will have an evf... if so, I think a lot of wildlife photographer will be disappointed as a lot of wildlife photographer use the viewfinder a lot even when not taking photo and most of them won't be happy if they need to bring a lots of batteries.

   Have a nice day.

There are two things we can guarantee about the 7DII.

1: it will not have an EVF ( thank goodness)

2: it will be met by howls of derision and disappointment on the Internet forums that will then gradually turn to grunts of respect twelve months later  ;)

So, so true.

Congrats on the arrival.  Great shots both of you.  I am seriously considering this lens for birding thanks to the great looking 600mm shots.

Great series....
yes, totally agree. Nive work, 2n10.

Now if you only had a picture of him catching a road runner :)
Don, didn't you understand it? Wile E. Coyote will never catch the Road Runner!
Beep! Beep!  ;)  ;D

Thanks Maximillian.

Thanks.  The bird lifted up after the pass and the coyote went right after it.  Not much missed in between except maybe the harrier going into the lift and the coyote following up with his head.

Ahh gotcha, thanks for the reply! In the 2nd last photo when the hawk is right above the coyote's head you can see that the coyote's heat is quickly turning and its eyes seem to be closed. Is it just shaking its head back and forth like dogs do sometimes or is it trying to see what's over it, and/or trying to duck? lol
Definitely ducking.  Those talons can do some serious damage.

What a great series! And great snap shooting on your part, too. Thanks so much for sharing.

What's your sense of what was happening? Was the hawk attacking the coyote or trying to rob him of a kill or just plain harassing him?

Zen :)

Thank you.  I usually get caught up in the moment and gawk.

My attention was caught by the harrier flying low over the brush and flying like it was trying to attack a large object.  I then noticed the coyote in the brush.  They played a little hide and seek and then the harrier broke off.  It moved to a brush clump and landed.  It appeared to be protecting a nest.  The coyote then moved into the open area and I started to take a few pictures of it since it was a decent open look.  I then noticed the Harrier coming back.  So I stayed with the scene and got these shots.
