Umm… Should his arm do that?  :o
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

I just ordered this lens from BH....will arrive this coming friday. Can't wait :o

Better than arriving on Monday!  :P

You will love this lens.  Take some time to get to know it.  I found that it needed a bit faster of a shutter speed than I expected to keep things sharp.  Crank up the shutter speed and enjoy.

At 1/1000, a lot can happen that we don't see in real time .  Always makes me appreciate how hard they hit. Some of his serves launch at over 60 mph...

Thanks for headup with shutter speed. With my kids, lowest shooting is 1/125. 1000-2000 when they start running etc ;)

I hope I have not posted this before, f/2:

And this was my post popular photo on Flickr until recently (not necessarily because of its technical merit  ;)), heavily cropped on the left and on the right, f/4:

Thanks JR...85L II might be next on my list ;)

Ha ha ... the hits just keep on coming!  ;D

Dylan, we have seen this before... It is a serious condition that depletes bank accounts and infuriates spouses...  You have --- Red Ring Acquisition Syndrome...  There is no known cure - but sitting on the floor surrounded by L lenses will alleviate the symptoms...  ;D

"Red Ring Acquisition Syndrome" - Yes, indeed. It needs to be stopped, right after 85L II of course ;D

To be honest, the lenses I bought are not for collection. I use them everydays. As you can see, I do not have anything longer 200mm ;)
