Oye, that is totally unfair ... you blamd the squirrels that they "got into the Coding system" and they "should be Banned" etc ... but now you have turned into a hostile witness, your testimony is found null and void ... therefore you are banned for life from representing the squirrel community ... I think the only person fully qualified to represent them is paulWalnut as he never blamed the squirrels, in fact he seems to promote them quite heavilyI've been getting the same stuff on CR for the last two days, on again/off again.Them darned Squirrels
I think the Squirrels have got into the Coding system, they should be Banned.
I believe these are unfair accusations toward the squirrel community, and though not a lawyer, i would be willing to represent them if needed. You have been forwarned!
Hi there, I am new to forums so go easy on me.
I started photography as a hobby a few years ago and have been learning new things ever since.
My first setup was a Canon 600D with the standard lenses...i also got a canon 50mm, and just before christmas i purchased the Sigma 8-16mm, which i am very impressed with.
Last week i ordered in my new setup- Canon 5D mk iii, with the canon 24-70mm. I am still awaiting its arrival, and cant wait to start learning how to use it!
I have been doing a bit of research into which other lenses i should purchase...I mainly shoot Landscape, and getting the hang of Astrophotography.
Any help or ideas in which lenses i should purchase would be greatly appreciated.
One more off off topic comment and then i am quitting for the night: Ausatralia looks like a cool place to visit, but there are too many dangerous critters there for me. Here in the US, we have our killer squirrels, but there you have crocs, snakes, spiders, kangeroos?. Did I leave anything out emi?
I always take pics of the kids around their birthday. I have a frame that holds one from each year till age 18. They are turning six in two weeks and we will be at Disney. I have the 24-70 2.8 but have been torn on a prime for the shots since I will be down there I do not want to bring tons of lenses. I am stuck on either getting a 50mm 1.2L or the 85mm 1.8. I want it to double up as a lower light or dof isolation lens on the trip also since my 24-70 stops at 2.8. This will be used when I get back for portraits. Just torn on the 50mm vs. 85mm. I do like the background creamy and smooth but sometimes like the one I took last year had some kewl Disney balloons from their party that helped capture more of the scene and what they were into at the time. I have a friends 85mm and notice it's definitely not as sharp as my 24-70 to be expected and the CA is slightly annoying but can be fixed in post. Also I looked at the 100mm macro and 135mm f2 for portraits but unsure if that's too tight indoors or at some of the places we go since the kids are little we do not let them stray far. Sorry I just need to make a decision and would like any suggestions.
I quite like white squirrels.
Not sure why I shared that, but still.
Never seen a white squirrel, but would like to. When i was a kid, a neighbor had a squirrel in a small cage. I stuck my hand in to pet the cute squirrel, then quickly withdrew it when the cute little squirrel attacked it leaving many painfull scratches on my hand. Too bad nobody was there to photograph this incident, or even better film it so I could make a movie and title it "Attack of the Killer Squirrel". Not sure why i shared this either, but we are discussing squirrels. Had to throw in there a little talk of photography at the end.
Where I am (Canada), we have Grey Squirrels, Black Squirrels (locally referred to as tree rats), and red Squirrels. The winters are so cold that the red Squirrels have learned to fly over the snow....
You also have Northern Flying squirrels. The Black Squirrels you have up there are a melanistic form of Gray Squirrel. Actually, by far most Grey Squirrels used to be the black form, but after Europeans arrived and chopped up the forests the Grey form became much more common in most of the East. The black form is more common these days in the more northern portion of the Gray Squirrels range.

AF case #1
The 200-400/4+1.4x seems like the perfect safari lens, and I do like the convenience of a zoom. The other day, I was a little too close to some herons/egrets I was shooting, zooming out would have been nice. But I just removed the 1.4x from my 600 II, framing was plenty loose enough, and I was still a stop faster and had better IQ than the 200-400 @ 560/5.6.
