Wow, amazing shots - that one with the explosion in the background is fantastic. And great info on the lens, was looking at buying the Sigma 50-500 in a few months but this lens certainly gives me something to think about. As does the detail in the images - was going to stick with a crop camera for the extra reach but these really show off what you can get with a full frame camera.

Yep.. don't waste your time on the 50-500.. that's old news.. just be aware that the 150-600 is a big lens.. and you will be noticed with it...

Hope people don't mind, but here's some of the WW1 vintage planes.. This was the highlight for me, but it's a shame that the weather was so terrible..

wow, some incredible shots - that 3rd one is fantastic, got a really nice sky in the background that goes brilliantly with the planes colours.

REALLY GREAT SET. Very rare to see that many WW 1 aircraft. do you know how many are restored originals vs re creations? I know there are several companies building re creations some at full scale & others slightly smaller.

Just finished laying out my next My Publisher photobook...

I've tried to include every aircraft that did a display, with a brief writeup of each aircraft and it's historical importance..

Have a browse...

Thats is some seriously impressive stuff, fantastic images throughout. The first shot of the F-18 on page 79 particularly caught my attention, just brilliant.

That the images in this thread were taken with a 5Diii and 150-600 is putting me in two minds over my next purchase too as I had intended to stick to crop for the extra reach and get a 6D for low light stuff but I am now wondering if I should just sell the crop and get a 5D instead as you certainly don't seem to struggle for reach with it.

Thank you.. you're too kind.. I try to lay out pages that have a theme and are complementary to each other.. It's especially difficult trying to find images that have enough negative space in them to lay out some text as well..

Cheers.. :) I'd love too, however, I don't have the funds to order 50 books and pay one off pricing.. as it stands, the my publisher 'one off' book price is $160 AUD delivered.. Just how many people would pay that?

I love my 5D as it affords me a lot of varied shooting requirements. That said, with the 150-600, I do get much more reach than a 100-400, but it's a heavy/awkward setup so you'd have to be keen. Also, I struggle with prop blur, so I can't get anywhere close to 1/100 - 1/160th second @ 600mm for sharp images. The 100-400 II seems to be a lot better in this regard, but, it's probably a couple of factors, the 'mode 3' IS and it's limited 400mm length. I can easily shoot 1/100 @ 100mm, but 1/100 @ 600mm you need the arms of Dwayne Johnson and the delicacy of a brain surgeon.. hehe..

The thing I have noticed tho is at 600mm, atmospheric conditions come into play, especially if you're shooting something on the ground. Heat haze etc ruins a lot of shots..

Thanks for the info, plenty to think on as I can either afford a better crop with better autofocus and a 6D or just the 5D. Or my wife may forbid any more purchases (I only just put the Sigma 150-600 on pre order) and I won't get either haha :)

It's easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission :)
