I'm new here. As many others, i used Canonrumors for news about new cameras and lenses. For example Eos 7D MK II and a "real" 4.0 400mm. :-)
Well, except Winter, i'm not a birder, i would say, i am part of the Macro fraction. But i like tele lenses, 200mm onwards is fine. Some kind of freudanian complex? :-)
The solution, at last for me, was simple, flying dragonflies. A few days ago i found a dragonfly thread in the animal kingdom, but only a few pictures in the thread. That's the main reason for me to register.
Most of my pictures are handheld, except "early morning" macros and long time exposure.
Until August 2013 i'm use MF for flying dragons, since then i'm using AF. Well, i have bought last year a 2.8 300 MK II and use since AF.
