Congrats and definitely jealous about the 100-500!

No, not jealous - that would imply you don't have one and don't want me to either. I think you mean "envious", which just means you wish you had one too! :-P So do I!!!!

Beautiful portrait! I was tempted to get the Samyang but I’m happy with my RF 85mm f/2 now.

Nice shot, I picked up the Samyang RF 85mm f/1.4 as well. Bought it on a bit of a whim when it was $100 off at Black Friday. I’ve been happy with Samyang in the past and for the same price as Canon’s RF 85mm f/2 but actually available at the time I was looking so took a chance.

Nice to see what others are doing with it.

This looks fantastic!

To be honest, and O.T. she's got the most beautiful profile,. just absolutely stunning!

Re: the Samyang, this is the RF f/1.4 autofocus one? You've peaked my interest.

I decided to try a wrap based on a thread over on FM.

I did this more in homage to my daughter who joined the services this summer, and also just to see if I could do it, but typically wouldn't consider something like this. This may become her camera in a few years perhaps. Cost about $30 and took a long time to get to my door.

I doubt this will seem like a good idea to many, initially including me. It was worth the attempt, gives the camera a bit more "attitude", and I hope she likes my effort commemorating her decision to give to the armed services of the US. It took a couple of hours, since there are something like 30-40 pieces, and lots of very deliberate placement of the skin parts with a tweezers.

It was an eBay seller who since hadn’t posted more unfortunately. There are others out there but run about $60 or so I think.

From this seller...

Also

the sigma 150-600

Im reading so many positive reports with this lens on the R5 and R6

I sold my 150-600 off because it missed much more often on the 1Dx2 v/s the 300 F/2.8 with a 1.4 TC set up...It missed enough that I had to rely on longer bursts to be able to get the shots

I regret selling off this sigma 150-600 but I needed to do so to fund for the 500F4. the 500F4 is just a killer lens. These canon bodies perform so much better with fixed primes attached as compared to variables. But I may borrow a 150-600 and see for myself how its going to behave on an R6....that would make an excellent set up if its consistent enough...trouble is you give up 200mm


CyberDyneSystems wrote in post #19170399 (external link)
I literally sold mine last week, and did it without ever trying it on the R5,. stupid. I was just so excited about the 100-400mm with 1.4x that I figured I'd never use the SIGMA again. I maybe should have tested the combo first! :rolleyes:

The above quotes are from the 800 F11 thread. And since I am still debating selling my Sigma 150-600 C, I decided to take it out today. It did better than I expected. But I'm not surprised. The hit rate was more than with either of my DSLRs. Now I'm not sure I want to get rid of it. Especially because of the MFD difference compared to the 800 F11. Here are a couple of examples.

Excellent shots! We have some sales on atm and I was actually thinking of getting the Tamron 100-400 EF for cityscapes as its meant to be great optically and it's only around $1000 AUD. There is the RF 100-400mm f/5.6-7.1 IS rumored for next year so I am a bit tempted to wait for that though, although I'm sure it will be quite a bit more expensive.

Thank you both. Of course the BIG advantage of the 800 F11 is the size and weight. The Sigma can be a bit much (handheld) after a while. I do not carry my monopod (I should) and do not do as much BIF as I'd like. Something I'm sure the 800 F11 can be easier with.

BTW, forgot to mention, I did switch the AF-ON to the * button and EYE-AF to the AF-ON button. Much, much better this way!
