Svalbard 2013

1Dx 200-400f/4
Shot @ 560mm f/5.6 & 1/250th ISO320

Shot from the Zodiac, we followed this Guy for miles, in & out of the water, amazing Energy levels these Animals have, they litterly swim hundreds of Kilometres. Longest recorded is over 400 Miles during a 9 Day swim, amazing stuff.

The possibility that in 50 years they will no longer be around in the Wild is just so Sad.

That sort of tactic - announcing a product, then a long delay, then some retailers start taking preorders, then another long delay - is a dirty trick that Canon would never play.

Ha Ha Ha  :) :) No Never, at least not this month, yet.

AvTvM will buy a Canon Camera, and actually be Happy with it  ;)

Each to there own :-) i bought the 85 1.2 because i love such shallow DOF :-) all i want is the eye in focus here :)

Love the Image Bornshooter, subject in this instance would appear to make it easy, lovely Lass.

My experience with the 85f/1.2 L II has been at f/1.2 you just don't have leeway for any movement in the subject, so I'm always cranking up the Shutter Speed, higher ISO, but your right, keepers with this Lens are fewer, but what you get are generally pretty good.

As I said, this Lens was made for you.

I had posted this on an other thread but this might be more appropriate:
Lets forget about the brand name of the camera used ... coz its about the joy of photography in the wild. Peace

Great stuff, have to give this a try, a perspective your not generally going to get, and live to tell the story.

Thanks Rienz.

Shot with the Zeiss 50@f2. Wonderful lens for tight crop portraits, imo. VERY tricky to nail focus of my kids up close wide open.

Brilliant shot, the eyes you've captured perfectly.

I do like this Lens, waiting for the Otus 55 to arrive for the Canon mount, looking forward to it, love these Zeiss Lenses.

Great shots everyone and a well deserved front page to you Edward.

November is not exactly the most inspirational time of the year where I live, but went for a walk this morning. Taking picture of flowing water is in my view quite difficult. Either you use a very fast shutter speed to freeze the water or you allow the water to smooth out, with a slower shutter speed. But if you let it smooth too much, then there is no life left. So I tried to balance that.

1DX, 24 TS-E f3.5L II, f16, ISO50, 0,3s
FANTASTIC! ... I like how you managed the white balance to get a perfect exposure ... AWESOME image.

So well done Eldar, it's a wonderful Lens, but you have to know how best to use it to get the best out of it, you've done that here, lovely Image. Have to say I've never used my 17 &24 TSE on the 1Dx, always on the 5DMK III, must give it a try.

So, please, what EXACTLY is so compellingly innovative about the A7r that makes it "pioneering new territory"?

Isn't it obvious?  There are two things that make the a7R compellingly innovative:  AvTvM likes it, and Canon didn't make it.

That seems to be it!

Sad, but ultimately it does seem to be it.

But I do see some light here, AvTvM has clearly been over to at least SonyRumours, that's a positive step, I think ??.

And he has said he will likely spend less time now on CR once he has that a7r, another positive step, right ??.

Man I hope he gets a good price for all that Canon Crap he owns & buys the a7r, and is Happy with it.........

Not likely, damn, more Sad.

Ignorant "besserwissers" donĀ“t add value to anything anywhere!
Eldar, I don't even know what that means and I agree with you, too funny.

Took this yesterday at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago.

Difficult to make these Guys look good, the B&W works well, well done.

Some older images from a safari to Kenya and Tanzania in 2007. Best holiday in my life!

Nicely done Vossie, Serengeti & Masai Mara, doesn't come much better, I agree, trips of a lifetime.

STUNNING! ... now wonder it was the front page pic ... CONGRATULATIONS!

Thanks Rienz

This was the Cover Shot.

Inside 11 Page Story & Images was the 2009 North Pole trip & 2011 South Pole/Antarctica trip, both trips I did with my 2 Sons.

Rejoice! Canon will happily take 7000 $ from you fot their next iteration big bulky heavy boring as hell mirror-slapper.
Or more. ;-)

AvTvM, why do you bother with all this ?? Out of 605 Posts all that changes is which specific part of Canon you dislike, otherwise it's just one long + 12 month Agonised Rant against Everything Canon.

You need to lighten up Man, get a Hobby (Photography might work for you), Go out more, have a Beer, spend less time on CR, head over to SR or NR, get a girlfriend, get a friend, spread yourself around a bit.

But heck, this is just the opinion of an ultra conservative Chap in his 60s like those Chaps Managing so poorly at Canon.
