Angry Bird with 5D Mark III / 100-400mm L
« on: April 03, 2012, 11:18:00 PM »
I managed to find a hour this morning to check and adjust the AFMA for my 100-400mm L Zoom.  It was front focusing a little at 400mm, but I could not detect a issue at 100mm.
 
I took a few snapshots of our rooster as he herded the hens around our front yard.  He is one tough (And Mean) cookie.  Just what is needed with all the eagles,hawks, owls and other preditors around here.  Only our Male duck stands up to him and bosses him around.

You carry a stick and don't turn your back on him.  But ... He really protects the flock and watches over them, he works very hard at it.  He is also pretty handsome, its those RED eyes that make him look angry.

Really nice shot.  Could use some help with fine contrast details in editing.

I had just received my 5D MK III and was more interested in checking it out than making a perfect image.  Its a pretty severe crop from my 100-400mm L wide open.  Stopping down will help sharpness, but I was looking for front or rear focus.

Very clean mirror and Mt Spokane... who's your hairdresser? ;)

Great photo but obviously we see a lack of DR and TR. If only you used D800 instead....

Yeah, If I push the exposure 5 stops it looks terrible!

But the subject and composition... I like it!

I have a D800 on order, but Nikon has no 100-400mmL.  I'll have to get close with the 200mm.  Maybe I can tie his feet to a stake, or use a TC at f/8 ;)
