Match made in heaven
« on: September 18, 2012, 07:50:28 PM »
Being in Australia, I was one of the few lucky ones to pick up my 1DX on 4th July. My long awaited pre-ordered 20~70mm L 2.8 II arrived 1st September. Paired up, I consider I have the sharpest of the sharp, both with lens and camera. Simply the best from Canon  :)

I think you've described it perfectly.

Congratulations on having the pinnacle of photographic technology (35mm equiv. anyway), and many years of outstanding images to you!

I've got the 1DX.  Still waiting on the new 24-70L though...

For DB. a few more recent images from my IDX + 20~70mm. Photographs captured in Yeppoon, Central Queensland Aust. After working the world in TV media (cammo) I can honestly say...paradise found!
Kind regards, Outback

Nice.  I'm hoping to have the 'low-rent' version of this combo by December 5DmkIII + Tamron 24-70. 

With the combo you have there, you should be getting some killer low-light photos . . .

I really like the shot with the flock of gulls there Glenn.  Good job!

Yeah, that sight would make me run . . . run so far away.  :)

Fabulous shots. I particularly like the flock of seagulls on the beach, great clarity and nice shadows on the sand.

The blue sky looks like you used a grad filter on it, or was that darker at the top done is post? Amazing color!

The only filter used on sea gulls was a circular PL filter. We at the moment have stunning blue skies and weather (May-Sept) before we hit the buildup to our wet and cyclone season... I tend to use a PL on most coastal and aerial work here over water. Aerial pics attached: Corio Bay - Great Keppel Island  1DX + 17~40mm L 1:4
