A 5DIII is a lot less expensive than upgrading your current lenses.

You can always sell your old lenses and update one at a time as $ is available.

Of course, it is a matter of your preference, and there are tradeoffs either way.

Beautiful!

Here's one I took last fall with the 24-105L:


Under a Brooding Sky by Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott, on Flickr


That is a 25 second exposure
Wow! What was your shutter speed on this beautiful image?

Holy scenes of "jaws" Batman.  I'm staying on land.

Good thing for him that the camera strap was around him or he would have gone for a ride.

Well that cleared things up for me.  I'll run it by my sweetie and see how she feels about some of it, but I'm thinking no.

Lastly, avoid Ken Rockwell for serious advice, though some of his stuff is (unintentionally) hilarious.

Thanks, that's his best review yet, and exactly at the right level.  ::)

Congrats on the blue ribbon!  Many talents.

I like the b&W.

I am curious, Adult Yeast?  Is there adolescent yeast?  What exactly does that mean for the non-bakers amongst us?

I can't comment on any of the lenses as I don't own them (other than I would love to own them).  I have been to the Serengeti twice, originating from USA.

I would strongly advise you to check with your tour operator and airlines regarding size/weight restrictions.  Also, there are many differences in tours, so some make longer lenses absolutely necessary.

In any event, you don't want make all these changes only to find out that the gear needs to stay at home.

As an example, when I checked in to KLM Dutch at DFW Airport, my camera bag was over weight (max as I recall was 12 KG).  I stuffed the heavy lenses in my safari vest.  Then when we left Arusha for the Serengeti, we took a puddle jumper for 1:45 min.  They were very strict on weight requirements (bags however went behind seats). You also have to check, as some connecting flights have small overhead compartments.  All of these details are critical when you are taking large heavy gear.

Hope you have a great trip, keep us posted.

Good luck with the lenses

That is so true.  On the other hand, when you get that one shot, it feels so great.

Obviously, you are not meant to have this stuff.  Just send it off to me.

Great moon shot!

Great shots.

I am partial to the first one.  The atmospheric haze doesn't bother me.

I'm no Ansel Adams for sure!

I'm heading out that way in November along with Zion and Canyon X.  Any pointers for me regarding location?

Don't mean to hijack your thread.

Thanks.

I love it.

It makes me wonder about Joshua on the one hand.  On the other hand, it also reminds me of the 1960's and it is kind of "beat".  Very cool.
