Posted in 'Birds section' as well, thought it should also go here to show off the glass.
Handheld with the 1Dmk4
I spent a few hours yesterday at the Hawk Conservancy (external link) and I'm still changing my mind every 10 minutes as to which shots to put up - so closing my eyes and clicking to choose give you. . . . . . .

#1 - 1/1600, f/2.8, iso 500 I believe this was the 'Siberian Eagle Owl' - take off

#2 - 1/1600, f/2.8, iso 500 How low can you go? (un-cropped)

#3 - 1/1600, f/2.8, iso 500 mouse eye view,crop from above photo

#4 - 1/2000, f/2.8, iso 320 Snowy on the approach

#5 - 1/2000, f/2.8, iso 320 tickling the grass on the fly home real shame it's grass and not snow!

#6 - 1/2000, f/2.8, iso 1250 one of the eagles fishing

Few of the Black Tailed Hawks, Practising how to meter on the bird not the sky so I didn't end up with a load of silhouettes.

#7 - 1/2000, f/2.8, iso 320

#8 - 1/2000, f/2.8, iso 400 one of my favourites blown up large

Awesome shots, David ! I find #2, #4 and #6 particularly mind-blowing ! :D
Owls are great subjects, I wish there were such a place next to where I live.

My new baby arrived yesterday, haven't had a chance to test it yet because there's basically no light at any hour of the day, but I was surprised by how light it is. This is my first big white so I was expecting something really heavy. I also ordered a 1.4x III which came in this morning, so now I'm set ! Just have to wait for the sun to show up a bit. :cool:

Seeing the results you get with the x2 III, I might get one of these too, a 600 f/5.6 sounds pretty interesting.

Great shots, David!! The 1D4 and 300 2.8L I.S. II seems like a sweet combo!

Thanks again!

Saturday kicked off the racing season with a bit of Rally cross / stages. Thought I would give the 300 a trial run - verdict. . . . very impressed (just a little too long for track side)

#1 - 1/100, f/3.2, iso 125

#4 - 1/160, f/3.2, iso 250 - yes the hill was that steep, not a camera tilt

#6 - 1/160, f/2.8, iso 250 - almost 100% crop of above - yep 'impressed'
