Thanks. I don't know what mirror practicing is, but I found that 1/60th works well for me with panning. IS mode 2 makes it pretty easy while keeping the subject sharp.

I picked my very own copy up yesterday. No more renting for me. Hopefully I'll have some decent shots shortly.
Congrats!

PS: Unless you are really proud of your current 3rd party 70-200... your profile should be able to enjoy a much needed update ;D

This is really nice, but a little soft, i'm presuming that was in post?
Thanks. :) Yes the soft look is something I did in post. Some like it, some dislike it.

Superb image, but the eyes post... dont look as nice as the rest of the pic :-\
Thank you! But the look of her eyes was not made in post. She is using something called "korean doll eye lenses". These lenses make your iris look way bigger and they also intensify detail and add color.

The doll eye lenses and circle lenses sell like hotcakes here in Asia. Young asian girls want to look like anime characters, and I must admit that it looks pretty darn cute.

There are many different types and sizes. You can see one example here:

I've discovered a flaw in the amazing Image Stabilization (IS) in my fancy new lens - although the image is still sharp at an amazingly low shutter speed it does not compensate for the movement of my hands that will shift the focus at longer focal lengths. For example, from Kimi's eyes down to her nose in the first shot and on the grass in front of her eye in the second. While the shot may be steadied by IS focus still changes when you move.
