although I havent been to the san diego zoo, you'll find that a lot of zoo shooting requires pretty decent distance shooting. I do most of my zoo shooting with the 70-200 and often its not enough.

That's what my lovely 100-400L IS is for! :D

Joe,
Does pulling the battery and re-inserting it clear it ? I occasionally get an err99 on both my mk2 bodies, and that always clears it.

Hey guys, quick question. Assuming the internal, CR battery is dead on a 1D MkII/n, all it means is that it won't save any of your CFn's, the date & time, and the continuous numbering position- right? It wouldn't cause any other problems/symptoms, would it?

Not that comes to mind but I can't say from experience. Try popping it out and what happens :D

Do you know whether it's easy to access? Or does it require a tear-down?

Pop out the main battery and look in. There's a plastic flap held by a screw on the upper portion of the compartment. Remove it and the battery is right there.

Ahhhh, nice. If I have the opportunity to do so, I will try that. :cool:

Thanks!

.....must be the day for POTN members to be getting bags. I was in the local store yesterday, and in the "used/consignment" area they had an old Tamrac 612 bag there. I have another of this bag that I've had and used the heck out of since the late 80's. You can't tear these bags up.....very well made. I've been using the old one to transport two AlienBees and all their wires/pocket wizards, etc. So I thought I'd pick this used bag up at the shop so I could carry two more bees around to locations. Turns out a Mk2 and the 200 f/2 fits well too. Or I can put a mk2 with the 300 2.8 in there if the hood is reversed. It will be convenient to just throw it in the horse trailer heading out to shows.
Got this bag for $75....so I'm happy !
