Cor that was close Robert.I really thought I was going to have to make some best effort at a lengthy eloquent post( ha ha me and eloquent that's funny:lol ,in a desparate attempt for you not to sell your DO. wow , a whole forum just breathed a sigh of relief
Seriously you don't know an RV10 thingy, and then,just post the above eagle in a nonchalant manner HMMMMM.
Sorry buddy, I'm full of childhood glee, I have half a hunch it doesn't matter what was in your hand tool wise, You would still make a thing of beauty to show us.
I do love this lens, I have basically one lens oh and a macro. But really, hares deer at al, require a bit of reach,so I have one 400mm lens and a couple of exts iii's My 1div can be amazing with both the bare and the 1.4 but really I rarely used the 2X. In all honesty i'm not a leanred photographer that understands all this digital technology terribly well. But, always I felt that really newer tech body wise was the missing link This was going to be a long haul,to newer tech I've been musing three cameras for the longest time. I guess before buying my 400doisii a somewhat niche lens I was trying to sort out a little tool kit . I need reach at times , I stalk and need to be mobile so the portable 400/560/800 is great. But on occassion where I want reach with my 1Div with the low light so oft here,I simply barely used my 2x .
Last week I finally put in the last bit of the equation the camera, a 1DX I,(OMG so much money) a used one is more than enough............... ,erm WOW!!!!!!!! the 2X is nuts it works like I expect of the 1.4 , well almost. Look I'm in now way fit for these tools yet,but the pairing of camera 1.4 and now 2xexts and 400 is wonderful.
I'm a stalker I love animals and seem to have always been able to get close to them.It's from chiildhood I guess this animal thing. So I get me head down graft me butt of get me tool kit.
My second outing, there I am with this incredible camera grinning like a cheshire cat, (ear to ear) camera knocking out 800mm . All that dosh for 800mm and the blummin beasties come too close, and I have to go to 560.......hey ho
I went there for a roe (deer),maybe having a swim , I got besotted by an egret and a tiny thing ,I think a wood sandpiper bless. I gave up and took off the 2x because I could barely frame. My first real chance with either especially at dawn. So I sort of forgot why I was there for an hour or two.
Naturally while being besotted a roe doe took a dip behind my back When I finally, DOH, realised she was there,she was so close it was silly What a bit of luck I was only at 560 mm. Ha ha best laid plans and all !
So here's a 400DO is ii image of said egret with a 2x ext iii and my new toy that complete's my little tool kit for the mo. I've alot to learn guys one hell of alot to learn,so this file will surely improve my post skills are ok but I've already been shown there is more,but it's a lovely start to a journey.
Sorry for waffling new toy bought and paid for the old way cold hard graft and hours. The potential is stunning. I 'm a very happy bunny
