Thanks for all the wonderful comments. What a way to wake up to reading these. :)

The trick to these shots was centre point focus, one shot mode, picked the focus point of a railing/jump etc, and clicked as the dog was in line with it. Never went wrong. It was only when I was on AI Servo mode, it kept missing focus, so I changed it.
Still a great lens.

Tim: Yeah, this time I used the new monopod.

For mills, and also another for the Boxer fans. :)

Man - I have some shots of the roggies, too - but there is most definately a very clear difference between photos from a 5K lens and a 0.5K lens...
(that's not to mention the very clear difference between Warren's talent with a camera, and mine :lol: )

As usual, Warren, you've hit this one clear out of the park :)

Heh, thanks. Wasn't quite benchmarking myself though. There's apparently a regular photographer who follows the meets, and charges $6 a shot. I won't be there to make money, but just had 10min of fun. Wouldn't want to be unoriginal and hit on someone elses territory either. :p

Thanks everyone else. :) Glad you all enjoyed.

Thanks Kirst for another fun weekend away. Too bad the weather wasn't worthwhile in waiting for a Mount Maunganui sunrise.

Hey Mike, we posted the same time :p

Thanks also bud, been a while since I've posted too much apart from weddings and lens test. I have thousands and thousands of photos to share (mostly landscapes). I just haven't looked at them yet. :o

Awesome Mate! Thanks for the Lab shots. The second one is unreal. Like your thought process on the focus issue. That is the way I go when capturing Lily and Ruby. And to Kirst. He was really never THIS GOOD. He's just working harder at it to impress you.:D

Funny one Mills. The skill hasn't changed, just I've improved 10% by having a better telephoto lens. :)
Thanks again

Wazza, well done. Where there any Golden Retrievers there by chance?

TIA,
