How not to land.

Anyway, there were a lot of different and challenging venues to shoot all in one place- rapid sports, outdoor photography, indoor photography in barns, portraits, event photography, animal photography, flash, natural light.  I didn't take artsy photos of the carnival, but that would also be great to do especially in the evening. 

It was a fun project, and harder to get good shots than I thought.  I plan to go back this weekend and see if I can improve.  I posted the pics to let everyone know that if you have time and are looking for something new and interesting, you may want to consider a fair and or rodeo.  Eeeeeha.

Great shot Jim!

It looks like the iq really didn't suffer from the tc.  How was focusing etc?  This may be a solution to loss of reach with a full frame vs. crop camera.

Speaking of the 70-200, this time with a 2X III:

Thanks!  The focusing slows down somewhat because it has to cover more depth, but it is still fast enough that the 5D2 I used is probably the limiting factor.  The only real functional issue I noticed is the need for a tripod shoe which sticks back towards the body an inch or so to balance it on a tripod.

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

This may be my next toy!

Do you have the 1.4X III to compare it to?

I don't, but I gather for the 1.4X extenders the difference between the II and III isn't as big as for the 2X parts.  It would be an interesting comparison!

So this happened today, under miserably unpredictable light which was barely possible with a 1Dx and a 70-200 f/2.8L; I'd have given my foot - well, someone's foot - for a 135 f/2.
