This is one of the Bald Eagles living near the Llano River in Texas. I took this yesterday on a gray day.Nice Lloyd! Which case number were you set at for your AF on this one?
Ken, this was a manual focus shot with my 5DIII using an old Canon 800mm fd L lens with the Ed Mika adaptor. I focused in live view with a Zacuto Z-finder. It is a crop of the following photo:
I've got to tell you Lloyd, I like that image too... maybe just a slight crop going in from the bottom right, up and toward the center, just a little bit!
How do you feel about the Ed Mika adapter? I've read about them but wasn't sure if they were worth the effort. That being said, I have some nice FD L glass, like a huge 300 prime... thing must be 8" in diameter, but I'd love to hook it up to my 5d3 or my 7D just for giggles... not sure if it's worth the investment in the adapter... Are they priced fairly decent?
