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.
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..

Sensational! Congrats it looks great.
Will you be selling copies?
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?

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.
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..
