Spent a very cold windy day at Manby in Lincolnshire on Saturday, we had rain, snow, sleet, hail, wind and a bit of sunshine which gave me perfect conditions to test my new acquisition (Yes I've bought a Sigma 120-300) I used it all day yesterday and was very happy with the results using it on the 1D MKIII that was until the shutter packed in yet again on the MKIII so it will be winging its way back to Canon next week to have it sorted again.

On to the photos, we had a pretty action packed day as some of the photos show

All comments welcome and by the way all the crew members "walked away" with only their pride and maybe their wallets damaged.


Cheers

Congratulations on the new purchase Ian. Resistance is futile etc ;)

That's a cracking set of shots with a distinct BMW flavour. Sorry to hear about the MK3 though.

By the way, what sort on nut uses an M3 on a rally? :D

Blimey Ian - cracking set of shots. Please you're happy with the 120-300, but sorry to hear about the shutter in your mk III.

Simon.

That looks like one hell of an event. Excellent shots as always Ian, particularly like the flying BMW (no.50).

Lovely shots again Ian, couldn't make it this time had to work :( Really sorry to hear about the shutter failure, i can imagine your not best pleased. What do you think to the 120-300? do you plan to use it instead of the 70-200?

Holy sh*t ... thats what you call being in the right place at the right time. Great captures Ian :D

Sorry to hear your having MKIII probelms again ... I think I'd be pushing for a replacement rather than another repair. Saying that, my MKIII doesnt have a video mode ;)

You out on the North Humberside?

I am really impressed with the 120-300 but I would say i will use it in addition to the 70-200 it won't replace it

It's going to be an interesting phone call to CPS in the morning, your MKIII does have a video mode you just haven't found it yet:) ;) and yes I will be in sunny Whitby next Friday


Thanks for the other comments

Great shots Ian

Pants re the shutter though :(

If it's any consolation I stuffer the R500 into a stone wall at the weekend:cry:
