Are you not tempted to use de 5d mk4 all the time, i know the 80D is a beautiful backup body. I hope they install the flippy screen to the 7D mk3 i loved it on my
70D. Shooting in the snow is a new experience for me it is not snowing much over here.
When the light is good, the 80D is amazing, I have no qualms about taking it out vs. the 5D4, especially when I'm reach limited. BUT... when the light is even slightly bad, the 5D4 is my de-facto choice. If I want to use the 5D4 full time, I'd be tempted to get the 600 f/4! With the 500mm, I always use the 1.4x; 600 would be about perfect, but the bulk is too much
Definitely looking forward to the 7D3... if it has similar sensor performance as this 80D, I'm all in.
Viewing your Flickr shots, I'm assuming you live in Florida? Despite the cold, shooting in the snow is fun. So quiet, beautiful, it lends a forlorn feeling to shots. Plus, birds are easier to spot in winter. Come on north, give it a go
Why didn't I use it to snap this hawk? I was looking out my back window w/ binoculars, when I saw an amazing Red Shouldered Hawk perched outside. I quickly suited up in winter garb, ran down and grabbed the 500mm and whatever body was attached, and ventured out to get the hawk/snowfall shot. Since I live in a suburb with a lot of people out and about, chances are the hawk would have been scared off before I could get there, so I didn't bother checking which body I had attached...
Now I'm following both of you. I don't do much wildlife at all, but you two are good!!!
Thank you, Joe I started following you recently, after I saw the great photo you took of the lamp in the rain (https://flic.kr/p/ZTzThU).
