"There is a lot to be said for being patient, still, and quiet." Good for the birds and the photograher, lowers blood pressure!
I'm so out of it that I posted my first sample chickie using my new old 1D2 in the ice/snow thread!
I get so worked up about such a minor purchase imagine what a 1DX would do!
Anyway, in tramping outside for an hour in the grass and snow (+8 C) carrying this beast with 300 X2, I became aware of how out of shape the winter has made me. Nothing to shoot but a squirrel so out on the deck to my prop for this shot with the 1D2. The sensor is very dirty otherwise it seems this small investment of $250 is worth it to help judge a future purchase. What a pitiful LCD though - hard to believe - 2004.
