Very very neat! I take it you were press accredited for those?

I wish!

These were taken through the fence!

Thanks

Andrew, those are outstanding Fox shots. Excellent color and the Fox looks very healthy, not sure I've seen one that looked that good before.

Does anyone know how long Canon will support the Mark I series White Monsters? Some guy on the German Canon forum said only until the end of 2015. He had bought an IS and an AF unit to make sure he had the parts later if he needed them. Since has sold the lens and is now trying to sell the parts. Anything to what he says?

I've owned the lens for a couple of months now and I don't regret buying it for a second (although I have just dropped it off for a service with Canon, due to the tripod collar not rotating properly). The most successful stuff so far has been the annual deer rut that has just come to an end:

Thanks guys! The most difficult thing is to follow the planes with that big lens. Not easy to swing it around handheld. The focus kind of does it's own job :)

Very nice photo! Would be interesting to do some wild life, but I don't know if I have the patience... :)

Well, it's not too dissimilar. You sometimes spend hours waiting for something that never shows up. Not unlike the F-35 at RIAT! :)

Nice shots by the way! Love the last Typhoon shot! May I ask where that shot was taken from? Was on FRIAT and am tempted to try some other sites when I go back again!

Ha-ha... Yes, F-35's not showing up was disappointing... Other than that it wasn't much waiting going around on RIAT. Action all day long :)

The Typoon shot (and all the rest) was taken from across the airfield. Farmers Field i belive it's called.

My lens is in for a bit of minor TLC with Canon UK. Following a brief chat with one of the service technicians and in case it's of interest to anyone, Canon will support service on the lens until 2017. So if you think it'll need a service at some point, probably a good idea to put a note in the diary for late 2016!
