Birdwatching @ Lake Neusiedel National Park
« on: May 25, 2013, 03:00:48 AM »
Went on the photohunt with my 70-200 2.8 II testing my new E2xIII.

As I consider myself a passionate amateur I am happy about tips and feedback to improve!

Most closeups where done with 400mm (2x200mm). The "faster" ones without the extender.

Some nice pics there. What camera body were you using?  The pic's of the birds in the reeds can be frustrating / challenging due to the clutter and the auto focus. I've taken so many pics of in-focus twigs with out of focus birds on them ;)

Yes, 7D. In fact that was one of the main reasons why I got it, hoping to be able to catch moving animals in focus.

LOL, yes I know what you mean Mr. Bean. The camera needs some IQ to read my mind what I want to have in focus and what not. Thanks to digital age I just take more pictures and usually at least some of them are useable, esp when using spot AF and spot metering.

I also love the 3 custom settings you can register so I am able to instantly switch between apropriate settings for a bird just flying over me and the flower I am spending time with on the ground.
