...Santa is thinking about getting me a 200mm F/2.8 L as a late gift but he needs to do a little more research on it.  What do you guys think of the 200mm F/2.8 L on a full frame DSLR, would it be good for outdoor portraits were space is not an issue?...

I just got that lens and all I can say is that you'll love it. Exceptional AF speed, very sharp, physically not very big as far as a 200 goes. I got a mint copy on eBay for $460.


Thanks, you have sent me over the edge, going to buy it when I see a good copy on Ebay.

Did you update the firmware on your Hero 3 yet?  I swear the battery drops to empty within 10 minutes of finishing a charge and that's not even with it recording, just sitting there turned on.  I don't know if the battery life level is just off or if it's actually draining that fast.

It's been a good year so I got a chance to upgrade most of my lenses and get a few more I have been dreaming about:

35 L
135 L
24-105 L, to replace the kit lens
70-200 F4 IS, replacing the consumer 70-300 IS
some new CF cards.

Keeping the 50D body for now.
Having a whole lot of fun playing with the new toys!
