Absolutely stunning Simon. I do wildlife and birds almost exclusively and I just realized why. No way in heck could I get results like that!

I hear ya brother! Simon does great portrait work with the 70D (yes, a lowly crop sensor) and I don't praise his work enough.

I tried portraiture and like you - its a whole new skillset that I personally found too hard and lost interest. For me - nature - wildlife and birds are so much easier!

Will, are you hand holding on those flower shots?

Rick


Yes, always hand-holding. The lowest shutter speed I use with a non-IS lens is 2X the focal length so the risk of shake is reduced, so I lowest shutter with the 50 STM is 100 or 125.

Hand-holding is a problem if shooting at wide apertures like f/2.8 or wider up-close and personal because moving in or out even 1 cm can ruin focus of course...

Finally had a few minutes to get out with the Sigma 150-600. Herons have been hunting around the islands in the middle of the river, so this was really pushing the limits of the lens. This guy was close to 200 feet out, so I had to pull about a 75% crop to get him close to filling the frame. Not spectacular, but not shabby for 600mm with a heavy crop. I'm looking forward to getting some closer shots with this lens.

Rose - nice sets...looks like fun at the docks. nice seagulls in flight

Will - that last flower shot on previous pages looks like burning birthday candles...awesome!

The other question I have is do you use a lens hood on it. The front is quite v recessed anyway ... but interested in your thoughts.

I think the stm renders colours better than the old version too.

Still with the nifty fifty stm - displaying it's wares :-). Not an amazing pano by any stretch of imagination, but a demo of the lens.
Five shot pano in low light, handheld. Merged in LR6

No I don't but I think its essentially a must have. I'm not paying for the official one because Canon is charging too much.

3rd party knock-offs are showing up on ebay and I will get one of them within the next few months.
