Mould prevention.

I must be getting more anal! I've been leaving this lens out on the pergola each day (when it's sunny) with the lens caps off. Putting all my old 50yr collection of analog lenses up for sale on ebay and seeing the state of some of them :oops: and the work I had to put into them before listing, brought on quite a panic when I think of how much I spent on this lens :-)

I have a dry cabinet so in reality, don't need the UV exposure. Adds about 2% to the cost of equipment stored in it. Cheap insurance.

Today I wished I had an 800 or even 1200mm lens....we watched a pack of 16 wolves chase down a bison & injure it badly. Then they played & waited patiently for it to die so they could feed. Because Yellowstone is a harsh environment the wolves don’t want to expend any more energy than necessary this time of year. The pups were recently tranquilized for a health check up & found to be 20lbs under weight. But I am giving this lens quite a workout & will be anxious to see how the pictures turned out.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

It would not get you to 1200mm,,,but a1.4x extender would of helped . I would never buy another one,,,,but having a 2x extender if atmosphere conditions were not against you would also helped. Its disappointing not to get good shots when a opportunity like that presents it's self !


I think I thought I thunk,,just before I made a stunk !

I have a friend in our camera club who goes to Yellowstone several times every year with his (nikon) 800. He knows the area thoroughly, and he comes back with very good photos of "nature" as you experienced. I don't know what body you have, but (like keeperseeker) I do recommend the 1.4x III if you have a 7D2, 5d4, or 1DX2 AND you have adequate light. I've only been to Yellowstone once, and it was before I was doing photography. I can imagine that being there as a photographer would be an amazing experience. I look forward to seeing your photos when you get the chance to post them.


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

If you need a 2X or more to even have a chance of getting a shot, decent results are possible.

These have been posted previously so no EXIF will show. With 2XTC:

New night rig. Torch now mounted in an arca clamp (used to be on ballhead) so no need to align before use. Flash mounted higher to eliminate red-eye.
Resulted in nice black pupils, but red veiny corneas! Maybe that's just what Tawny frogmouth eyes are going to look like.
