I think I'd call it skill. Another fine fox capture.

Sometimes organizing files can bring you back to some pretty good times. And your right John.. the camera means nothing most of the time.
Shot with the 7D and 100-400LII when my camera was at canon for a little R&R.

Ya... sometimes the old 7D could really pull it off. I still have and should use it more.

How did the DsR preform for sports? Do you always use that body? I am going to add this lens to my collection as I think it will be a perfect compliment to what I already own.


Combo is perfect for all sports infact anything thats got action especially wildlife is ok.. I have a mate with a Nikon D4 and a D7200 that he combines with a Nikkor f2.8 400 prime who regularly shoots sports and wildlife with me and he gets frustrated with missing the shots I can get using the shorter end of the zoom. Whilst his shots are marginally sharper its not something that is easily noticed when comparing with mine and anyway when the horse and rider in a Polo match start getting closer towards the 200-100mm mark of my lens they are as sharp as his at 400mm if not sharper. . The only thing a prime like say a ef F 2.8 400mm on a std DSLr body has over my lens/camera combo is 2 stops extra of light. But because the f2.8 on my mates prime is such a narrow depth of field he rarely ever uses it because too hard to get focus on something coming fast head on and get the right DOF point. Especially so with say polo where the horse and rider can be a distance apart so if he hits the horses ear or an outstretched arm the riders face is right out of focus. So in that respect I dont miss anything less than f5.6 for sports because I get a reasonable DOF but shallow enough to still be able to turn the the background into a nice blur.

On other sports like Football (Aussie rules) , soccer and other riding sports like cross country The body and lens combo is again excellent . The high 50 megapixel count allows for way deeper crops with no loss to IQ. Its like having an extender on without the loss of the stop!....So instead of using a 500 or 600 lens I just crop the image file in post to get an equivalent similar how one would do it by using a longer lens on a smaller pixel size sensor. So the 50megapixel of info helps me when I need to discard some to crop in hard and even then Im still left with a file size that is capable of being printed out to a2 with no problems . The other day I did some posters for a client of a polo match after cropping 1/3 off the original size and still was able to print a sharp Large A1 print that looked like it was printed uncropped and 300dpi (mine was 220dpi ) it looked that good.

Also birds either in flight is another great application for the body and lens combo. Especially with the onboard tracking . Using tracking has increased my keepers by heaps .And of course the combo is way lighter than say using a 400mm prime for the job. I have no problems following a bird in flight handheld whereas my mate has to use tripod or monopod with gimbal after about 3 mins of trying to handhold. I can go whole day handheld however I do use a Gitzo monopd for some stuff and again it works great with that for really supersharp shots.

So long and short of it is this lens is a brilliant allrounder and when combined with the 5dsr 50 meg sensor it turns into a beast for getting shots that can be enlarged way past many of the other smaller sensor cameras.

Werribee Park?

Nice action grabs, especially the leg positions in the bottom shot.

Yes...your spot on ...was at Werribee last weekend

And a couple more sport shots to show sports capability of 5dsr& 100-400mm combo .......1 from the local kids league Aussie Rule football finals I and mate of mine cover each year for the local league Association and the other was from a polo match last year...Even though Polo Is fast the camera lens combo is good...even with a slower 5 FPS vs the 12 FPS cameras that most sports cameras have these days it acquits itself well. JUst means one has to be more careful on when to take the first shot in a burst.

4 days since the last post? What seems to be the problem, folks? We have a lot more photos to post before I'm 100% convinced that this lens is legit.

:-D

I usually have the 100-400 with me as my "side arm" while the 500 is on the tripod. Gets the shots like the one below: straight overhead, where the tripod can't easily reach.
