Nice pics all.

Bobo, like number 2 and 4 of the lizzard, where just his head is poking out. And you seemed to have found some big ass spiders recently!! I'm pleased to say you don't get them in my neck of the woods (and yes I'm very happy about it too!!).

And nice bird shots Happyduck, the robin and blue tit pics look nice and sharp :cool:

Lastly, nice to see Kostas back posting pics. I'll look forward to more :lol:

Ah, one more comment...

Christina, I couldn't stop looking at those two zombie pics you posted. I found the first girl strangely attractive :confused: and I had to keep looking at the second to make sure she hadn't really un-zipped her skin!! :cool:

Must have been spooky, especially as it sounds like it went on after dark...

Did you find hiring the 70-200 2.8 a real must, or do you think you'd have got away with uping the ISO on the 70-300 when it got darker?

Eh, to be honest? No it wasnt a must. More of a 'just in case I need the reach when it gets dark) - (and I mean dark). In the end, I used my 85L most of all, as I was so close to the action I didn't need the 300 or the 70-200. But before I switched to the 85L I was flipping between the 70-300 and 70-200 every half hour or so. DOF wise, the 300 at 300 replicates the same out of focus blur wide open as the 70-200 did at 2.8 - BUT I was so close, the 300 was too long and so was the 70-200 in some cases. I was also playing with them to see how they compared. The 200 was the not the II version, but was the IS version. I can tell you now the IS of the 70-300 was hugely improved. The 200 seemed to suffer from focus shift from time to time. In the end I put away both just because I didn't need more than 85mm of reach and it was getting very dark. IQ wise the 70-300L produced better, warmer colors in my opinion (and this test was done shooting same location with both lenses back to back, i changed them. And sharpness wise, better as well. The 70-300L compares more to the II version in terms of optics.

And yes I could have gotten away with just bumping the ISO, which I did for a bit before it becane pitch dark out. Thats when I switched to the 85L

Don't be too sure about that. If you do not look for them you do not see them. :)

Excellent shots - Bianchi, Shox, Davem. Please post often.

Christina - that is a great shot.

I have been to the TO zoo a number of times just as a visitor and had formed an opinion that the animals were too far off or the cage wire was too closely meshed or thick for any proper view. So since taking up photography have given the place a miss even though it is only 20 mins from where I am.

Looks like a visit is in order, the place must have changed quite a bit since those visits...

Merganser tourists meandering our local water on-route south, and a Nut-hatch doing its thing

shot the nuthatch wide-open which is quite rare for me and unfortunately its not the best pose to showcase the result... heading out later today with a buddy so I'll see what wide-open can deliver on my copy

Hey guys, so I have a question. And it regards this lens so I figured Id ask it here rather than start a thread..

When I was in the Toronto Zoo, it was a cold day. I noticed every time I stepped into one of the pavilion's (that were set up like rain forests. i.e. VERY warm, and very damp.) Instantly, the lens fogged up. The entire body of the lens would have a sheen of condensation on it from the sudden moisture in the air, coming from being out in the cold while walking outside. It would take a few minutes for the camera/lens to adjust to the temperature and for the fog to clear up. I didn't think much of it, and I never changed lenses (so I never exposed the sensor to this environment while in it) - but I was wondering, could this lead to moisture collecting INSIDE the body of the lens, somehow? Like mold?

While it was damp and fogged up, I didn't zoom it or take pictures (could barely see out the view finder anyway). I waited until it cleared.
