Went to Darley Moor last Sunday to Photograph some Motorcycle Racing. I go to Darley fairly regularly & it always seems to be overcast (800ASA) at best. Sunday was sunny!! like 200ASA Sunny!!

The previous Race I went to was the MotoGP at Silverstone. I didn't bother taking my 1Dc to Siverstone because, from a Amateur Photographic point of view, words cannot describe how horrendously awfull the place is! If you are wondering why I went if the place is so awful - My Wife is a Rossi Fan.

I was glad to be back at a Track where there are reasonable Photographic opportunities from the Public viewing areas & to have it sunny as well was a Bonus of Chief-Executive proportions!

Here is one of my Photo's. 1Dc, 300f4L + 1.4X Extender. AV Mode, f8 @ 1/800th, 200ASA, Maximum JPG resolution. Re-sizing to fit POTN limits is the only pp done to the image. The 1Dc still Rocks as far as I am concerned!

Aw theres your problem, no headlights! ;)

But great pic!, btw EOS how do you like the 24-85? I need to fill the gap between my L's and I cant afford a 24-70 at the moment so looking into the 24-85 and the 28-105 both are USM f3.5-4.5. its no fixed aperture but with those numbers I feel like I can just leave it at f4.5 and be done with it/enjoy the lens. Been looking through the sample thread but nothing that really pops out at me.

Geeky I had this lens on for some time and it produced nice sharp pics, USM is fast ,distorted abit at 24. Gifted it to my daughter after I got the 28-135is and must admit I missed the 24mm end . Daughters 400D camera was stolen and was replaced with a 450D and 17-85 EFS which I feel is not as good other than being extra wide.I have a 24-70L now but I would not say it's that much better than my old 24-85 which was compact, heaps lighther,fast focusing, sharp, well constructed and well priced

thats great to hear, I actually just put a bid in on a 28-105. Planning on using this on the 5D as a walk around lens and to fill the gap. I'm hoping this is just a poor man's L ;) lol

Yep if it's the 3.5 -4.5 version it will be good with 1D or 5D.There is some good stuff to be had from these mid 90's USM zoom lenses
I have used with pleasing results the following USM zooms over the years on film and digital bodies
20-35 3.5-4.5 USM
24-85
28-105
28-135is
70-210
100-300 [Soft 200-300]

Ive owned both the 28-135is and the 70-210 and both were superb lenses, only moved up to the L series for the CA, enclosed length, and my 28-135is had bad zoom creep. I borrowed a friends 20-35 while on a XTi (1.6x crop) and loved the lenses, hated it on the XTi though. The 20-35 is the main reason I want the L version especially with the fixed 2.8 aperture. But these f3.5-4.5 should not have been dropped by canon for their 3.5-5.6 line :( haha.

Thanks all for the positive comments!

Geeky, I am extemely happy with the 24-85 f3.5-4.5. As always I would recomend L Glass to those who can afford & justify the cost, but this lens as a used buy gives a fantastic image quality for the cost in my opinion. I have absolutely no regrets about buying it.

Here is a Photo taken with the 1Dc & 24-85 f3.5-4.5 USM combo. It was taken at 24mm, f16, 1/60th 200ASA.

The main critisims of the 24-85 from Tester's (who's job is to test a Lens well beyond the requirements of most Photographer's) was vignetting & Chromatic aberation. The vignetting is reduced by the 1Dc Crop Sensor (Though even some full Frame user's don't find it that much of an issue in the real world). Chromatic Aberation is not an issue in most of my Photo's as most of the time I am using a small aperture which reduces it's effects. When I do occasionally use full aperture, the corner's are usually so out of focus due to the small depth of field with the Focus Point being elsewhere, it doesn't show much anyway.

Creeper much? lol.


long shot, but has anyone owned a Case Logic SLRC-206 bag and tried fitting their 1D with a lens in there?
looking for a new bag and it looks pretty nice, just don't know if it will fit or not.

During today's session, The legendary toughness of the 1D was proven to me.

To get the right angle on the model, I was in a tree, about 15 feet of the ground. I am not the cautious type, so when I switched to another camera, I just put the 1D aside on a branch. A few minutes later I heard a loud crash, as it hit a tree stump on the forest floor (scared the hell out of my assistant :P).

This is the result:

Preliminary prognosis:
Lens - DOA.
Flash - In critical condition.
1D - Not a scratch.

I'm sure the model thought I was crazy when my response was "don't worry. It's designed to do that" She looked slightly freaked out, as well, when I washed the dirt of it with my water bottle :P

So today's lesson must be that trees don't scare the mighty 1D :)
