Some quick LR action to these zoo pictures from today. Spot AF nailed it for the eagle - was able to get right through the "cage" however there was still an uber-fine mesh to contend with.

C&C, even negative, always welcome re: anything!!

Those came out excellent. Great lighting. The animals look so healthy too.

For the eagle shot you could always add some blur to the background to get rid of that mesh.


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

Thanks!

Interesting you note the lighting. I was disappointed it was overcast from a "catchin' rays" perspective; however, there were never any heavy shadows or overly dark areas. I never completely blew out the sky when ETTR like I would normally have in some of these shots.

I'm glad I made it to the Big Cats location first. Although the Lions and snow leopard hid all day, I snagged the tiger before he disappeared. I have a couple other cool snapshots, although these are the ones I felt worthy of displaying.

First impressions of my rental lens:

Most of my shots were shot wide open with a marginal increase in IQ as I stopped down.

Handholding anything slower than 1/focal length at >200mm for me became an issue and the resulting images were soft (like the wolves). Luckily, I didn't have to do that much.

ISO ranges were 400-1600 all day, I'm quite impressed with the 7D's lack of noise.

I don't know if I could ever own a zoom this long. I just never would see a use for it outside of something like this or daytime sports. My Chicago pics came out OK yesterday, framing things was difficult in a city setting.

I don't care for the zoom action; but the attention it gets is 2nd to non LOL!

EDIT: I'll work on the PP a little more in some, like the eagle. I only marginally adjusted exposure, contrast, and sat values.

Do you really believe Canon or any other camera manufacturer would design a camera body where a heavy lens would rip the mount out by just walking around with it? Or running? Or hiking? Bicycle racing? Mountain climbing? The list is endless. None of those guys has an extra hand to baby the gear...

Has anybody ever seen a fine print for a specific camera body like: Can only be used with cheap 3rd part lenses, expensive heavy "L" lenses are not recommended...:rolleyes:

Don't worry, even on a Rebel, the lens mount is made of metal and so is the cage behind it! You can use a EF 600 f/4 IS on it and walk around all day. You will break apart from that weight a lot earlier than your camera. Trust me.

the internal frame is metal. the mount that the lens attaches to is metal, but the area from the internal frame to the lens mount is plastic. Look it up if you dont believe me.

as for it breaking apart, i dont think it will do that, but its more comfortable and i always err on the side of safety. especially with fairly expensive or important things.:cool:

Sorry for the novice question but is there much loss in sharpness if you add a 1.4 teleconverter to the 100-400?

Thanks! The roller is an amazing bird.. Mother Nature goes all out sometimes, and that's a great example.
