1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

Clue:

Depth of field :)

Yes, at f/2.8 one or the other should be in focus, definitely not both at that distance.

So stacked Images, at least two, the f/2.8 keeps the Bokeh in the background, nice, if you can get the subjects to play the Game & keep still, well done Menace.

The attached was shot at f/5.6 with the 200-400, the Big Guy in the background wasn't Happy so getting them together long enough for stacked shots wasn't an option.

I use a couple of these Domke Bags when I'm not looking to carry the Kitchen Sink.

I have the J2 Canvas version but I find the J1 & J3 Ballistic Nylon works better.

The J3 seems about what you may be looking for, but they have a number of larger sizes that you may grow into.

These were taken one cloudy morning on a canoe trip below Squaretop Mountain in the Wind River Range of Wyoming between the two Green River Lakes.

Lovely Image, especially the first, reminds me of scenes from The Hobbit.

400mm, f2.8, ISO500, 1/1000

Yep, only time I feel for having sold the 400, when i see something like this shot @ f2.8.

Lovely shot Menace, I see this often as well, Predators drooling while looking at Photographers    :).

But what an amazingly Beautiful Animal, in my view about the only thing on the Planet more Beautiful than a Leopard.

Sorry I was a bit unclear on that to begin with. I hope you didn't break anything ...

No problem Eldar, I have an Engineering Background, if a large Hammer & a Crowbar don't get it to fit, maybe it wasn't meant to fit, it didn't fit, I now have the 6D version & it fits the 5DMKIII like a glove, with some persuasion, but it fits, so thanks for the heads up.

Just weird that Canon make interchangeable screens for the 1Dx & 6D but left out the 5DMK III.

My inspiration for photography

Very Cute, and they actually get better, mine are 20 & 15 now, they actually talk & make sense as well, mostly, sort of.

NB!! It is the Eg-S (6D version) that works on the 5DIII, not Ec-S!

Ahhh!! that explains why I couldn't force my Ec-s into the 5DMK III cavity.

Will order the Eg-s now & try that.

I have now used it both on the 1DX and 5DIII with Ec-S screens (not meant to be on the 5DIII, but it fits with a little push and a steady hand). Focusing was a lot easier than I had expected and in reasonably good light I hit it almost every time.

Good info Eldar, need to try that, wasn't aware it would fit, but if a gentle nudge does the trick it allows for more use of the 5DMK III

All excellent, in particular like the first two, the all white surrounds in the first Image really, well done GMC.

Lovely Country as well.

Cant wait to see your 12th Post   ???

Oh, dear me, I guess you have posting seniority. 

If you are worried about my number of postings:

Not at all, your arrogant statement regards the 2 previous posters views being "wrong" was the point of my own remark, how many Posts you've made wasn't the relevant point, but clearly my own Post didn't include enough small words to make myself clear.

And your subsequent comments on this thread tend to reinforce my original view.

Here's a recent 400 f2.8 LIS (mkI) with a 2x converter. One image over view and the other at 100% crop.
This is very nearly wide open:

It's a heavy lens but worth it. Not many lenses can come close to this level of quality

Lovely Image GMC, Nailed focus & beautiful background to complement the colours of the Puffin, well done.

It's a great lens as well, enjoyed mine when I had it, enjoyed the weight saving of the Mk II even more, but IQ was similar in both, brilliant.

I´m a bit scared of loosing my reputation of posting cat images, so here´s a recent one of The Local Lion :)
He´s 14 years old now, but still king of the street  8)
Like with other animals, I find the structure and color of their fur to be amongst the best subject for lens tests there is. Open the link and look close around his eyes ...

I totally wrecked my 135 f2.0L earlier this year and was planning to buy a new, but ended up with a Zeiss 135 f2.0 instead. Optically and mechanically as good as only Zeiss makes them, but of course manual focus. This one is shot with the new Ec-S focusing screen. With that I am able to nail pretty much every shot, provided things does´t move too fast.

1/640s, f2.0, ISO100

Brilliant Image Eldar, the colours are amazingly good, at 14 this Cat looks like I feel.

I must admit I've looked at the Zeiss 135f/2 on a number of occasions, may have to drop my 135f/2 L a couple times, then perhaps time to look again.

Rodeo action yesterday with the 1dx and 70-200 and 300 2.8.

Full sun at high noon so the light was quite harsh and from straight above, but i did the best i could

Looks like pursing of the lips is a Rodeo requirement, great action shots Northstar.
