Holy scenes of "jaws" Batman.  I'm staying on land.

Good thing for him that the camera strap was around him or he would have gone for a ride.

But pretty awesome, reminds me of the photog that lost his 5D2 to a lion

Holy sh!t ... I'd probably cra9 my pants in that situation ... lucky for the exhibition guide that the shark decided to leave the gear just 100 meters away ... imagine if the shark took off a few thousand meters away with the gear, the embarrassment of cra9ping yourself in the pants and the pain of losing £11000 worth of gear would be too much to bear.

Diving with tiger sharks.  No cage.  Camera gear to attract attention.  Uh huh.  That's what I want to do.  After that, I'll head off to Taliban country for some boudoir photography.  Yeah, that's the ticket!

I have posted this image of mine before, but it fits in well here too.

I was hit by a tiger in Laos, the 1D and 16-35 were fine, though they did have some tiger slobber on them!

It may just be me...but your image doesn't look all that sharp.

Some reasons I might suggest:

1) Too close, inside MFD (I always wanted to try a Tiger Macro shot)
2) Lens needs AFMA (after you change the front element to remove Tiger claw marks)
3) Shutter speed too slow (wow, I didn't realize Tigers could move that fast)
4) The rapid increase in the size of the Tiger in the viewfinder caused massive camera shake that even the IS couldn't overcome

I hope this helps ;D
