New 1DX and 24-70L II lose their cherries together (1st shot)
« on: October 07, 2012, 03:35:12 PM »
This is the very first click out of my new 1DX and new 24-70L II. Sigh... no longer virgins! 
No changes to menus. Just put on the lens, went outside, turned the camera on, aimed and shot. (Just wanted to see what came out)

Pretty impressed with result.  Now to have fun with the menu's. That will be exciting... maybe!
Camera came back with f/7.1, 1/400, 160 ISO

... not if the statue is moving really fast and in unpredictable ways, that's when the fast af of the non-IS lens and the stellar tracking capabilities of the body can show what they can do :-> ... no, really, I'm just envious, if the op has fun with that gear it's absolutely fine by be.

LOL! As though we are short on threads that quickly meander over to such topics.

Not even remotely!  Because Australia, as everyone knows, is entirely peopled with criminals, and criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me, so I can clearly not help but bring up the fact that while Sitting Elf is enjoying his new gear, for now, soon DxOMark will release their Overall Score for the 1D X, and that will surely cause him to want to get so slobbering drunk, he can't even buy brandy.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Yeah.. we have a few. The one pictured is about 2 feet tall. Took the shot at ground level.
My wife likes the little statues around!
