Such a delightfully versatile and sharp lens.

#1 is the Raw full frame original just down sampled to 1200x800 and saved as a JPG in PS CC.
#2 is a full res 1024x1024 crop that has been sharpened and adjusted in PS CC to tease out the detail.


The subject is a wild Eastern Water Dragon.

Cheers

Dennis

Here's a prime example of why I feel that the 100-400 II is the BEST in Canon's lineup. What other lens allows you the versatility of shooting macro-esque one second, and then turn around and take on bird photography the next? And as a bonus it returns superb image quality.

These aren't award winning shots by any means, as I was out to fine tune MFA, and was pulling the trigger on anything I came across :-)

Possibly NSFW...

"Hay guize!"

I wish I'd gone for f/8 or so to get the rest of the fence sharper but I just love the look on his face.

I had a little giggle when I saw this one! A friend called over earlier, he used to work on the saws (Lumberjack on your side of the pond) and when firefighting they often got water-bombed. Unfortunately they also got showered with Trout sometimes - bit scary but great to take home for supper!

Raining trout. Only in my dreams. Where I live there aren't any, it's too warm. All we would get are tilapia. And you really can't eat them as the canal water is pretty nasty.

Unfortunately one of his friends got his safety helmet split by a 3 pounder - bit of a headache! Apparently there is a reason for wearing head protection when working in the open - it might rain FISH :lol:

The local fishing club were not happy having their fish thrown all over the Welsh mountains either!

Now there was the time I went to visit another friend in Cromarty (Scotland) some years ago. The previous day a pen from a fish farm had broken loose and washed up on the beach - suffice to say that we dined well!

I'm fine with the Canon foot. It doesn't get used that much anyway, because I usually hand-hold. But sometimes I use a monopod, and the OEM foot works fine for that. I'm happy the original foot isn't heavier and costlier to make than it is. I'm also happy for those who like to customize. :-)


Agreed! I have a Kirk collecting dust for it... the design though is fatally flawed no matter what you attach to it because of the stupid 4 screws. I threw on an extra plate from the old Tamron/frustration lens, which is longer/cheaper than the Kirk I'd originally over-tightened in a feeble attempt/lack of understanding that the culprit was those 4 stupid screws. Honestly I wouldn't overpay for any extra mount on this thing at all. Just use the Canon one, add a long plate, then you have a perfect handle for cheap.

I did about the same...and generously Loctited the four screws and the little plate they are supposed to hold down. Seems solid enough, though I think a touch of Loctite 241 leaked down to the ring which makes its rotation a bit notchy, but with use it is evening out.
