Love the Furcon shot!

I prefer the Canon 8-15. Gives the best of both worlds.

Thanks... I was never a fan of circular fisheyes, I'm more into rect. FOV so the 8-15L was mehhh for me, especially in the sharpness dept.

Ya it is tough to get sharp. I like it for the versatility shooting sports, I do a lot of ski/snowboard and it just ROCKS in a Half-pipe. Your shots have me seriously considering a 15 though!

Love to see some of those images. Jonesing for some fresh powder to get up to Tahoe  :D

Under contract or I would gladly. I expect some deep stuff around mid feb after the holidays TBH. Squaw and North Star are hurting on snow at the moment as is anything with a northwest face. I reaaaaly want to get down to Monterey (saw your jelly shot!) and do the aquarium again.

Bummer, as is the same with most of my comercial work. Yea, jonseing for some Mott Canyon action but doubt that will materialize this year. The aquarium was fun but man was it crowded... I suggest a monday-tues visit ;)
