Canon 800mm F5.6L IS USM experiment
« on: October 13, 2012, 04:03:55 PM »
I am lucky enough to borrow the 800mm this weekend. I wanted to see how far it reaches, and also how far it reaches with help. The series are from 16mm to 2560 in effective focal lenght. The last picture is cropped a 100%. The distance from where I was standing and the building over the Oslofjord is approximately 9 kilometres.

I need a zoom lens that covers that range. :)  (Plus I'd like circular fisheye on the wide end.)
Very cool, thanks.

So basically you can stay in bed and do bird-shots from there with this combo.  ;)

Yes from Oslo, Norway. It's not from Akershus Festning, but higher up (right above Sj√łmansskolen on Ekeberg:)

Thanks. I just told a friend the other day that my dream walkaround lens should be 14-500 F2.8L IS II USM, and that the weight should not exeed the 70-200 II, and the price should not be higher than the latter lens, lol :)
