A couple of recent shots with the EF 800 f/5.6L IS. I was using a 1D Mark III here. The first image is handheld.

Those are amazing shots.   Where did you shoot them?  And if you don't mind what kind of tripod do you use?

Hey

The coyote was found in Annan, Ontario, Canada. About 20 minutes from Owen Sound, Ontario.

The first shot was hand held, the 2nd was from the back of a minivan on a Gitzo 3541LS & Wimberley Type II.

Both pictures are very nice and what I especially like about the second one is that it is clearly a very long distance shot, however the DoF is still quite shallow. Really amazing what the 800mm can do here.

Do you have any idea about the distance or could maybe also provide the EXIF for this one ?

I find it amazing that 800's IS is so good that it can be hand-held with very acceptable results.

Very nice shots, btw. ;)

i would not say these shots are "amazing" or "awesome"... but maybe thats an american thing, to exaggerate everything.

but the 800mm is sure quite a technical achievement for canon.

meanwhile, how far away were these shots? (and how close would you want to get?)
Too much gear, too little space.

I'm having so much fun with this lens. Not sure how I got along without it. Sold my car to buy it and no remorse!

Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) by alabang, on Flickr

The Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) commonly abbreviated to just Night Heron in Eurasia, is a medium-sized heron found throughout a large part of the world, except in the coldest regions and Australasia  (where replaced by the closely related Rufous Night Heron, with which it has hybridized in the area of contact).

Adults are approximately 64 cm long and weigh 800 g. They have a black crown and back with the remainder of the body white or grey, red eyes, and short yellow legs. Young birds are brown, flecked with white and grey. These are short-necked and stout herons.

Brilliant shot, I think it was well worth selling your car for the lens. Walking keeps you healthy and unless it was a Prius you've also reduced your carbon footprint...so many good things came out of getting the lens.

I digress, seriously love the shot. With images of this quality I'm sure you'll make enough money back from sales to get another car anyway.
