Wow, go away for a few days and miss a ton of posts, as usual. :)

The battery story... Eneloops are awesome. I have a bunch ox the regular and 8 of the special black ones that I use in my flashes. Flash recycles very fast. I also have a similar charger to what was mentioned. Can't remember where I bought it, but the brand on the side is PowerEx and it charges individually, has a button for a soft charge and a button with a recycle symbol that sort of "refreshes" batteries somehow. It has a little display under each battery showing that they're being charged independently.

Oh, and by the way..... shameless ;) plugging for a couple of contest entry things....

First is a Bokeh contest that's running on SLR Lounge and ends on Wednesday. They say that they are judging and taking the number of 'Likes' on the page into account, so if anyone feels like throwing some 'Likes' my way on the following page. :D

Also, non-photography related, but I'm really hoping to finally have a design printed on Threadless. Here's a link to my design:

http://beta.threadless​.com/ironman/backup-power-supply/ (external link)

I'd be super thankful to anybody that has a second to check it out and throw me a vote on there if you would be so kind. :D :D ;)

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Santa didn't bring me any camera goodies like a 6D, but maybe I'll get lucky on that SLR Lounge contest and I'll be $250 closer! ;)

I hear ya, I love the 15-85 IS for walkaround but tired of its zoom creep and variable aperture for portraiture, and I like the focal length of the 24-105L on a crop...

and I'm not saying I'll give up my better kidney...

You know I'm a BIG fan of the 24-105L, the range on it is just wonderful for a walk-around general purpose. Not to mention that nice constant f/4. I'm sure you really don't need that extra kidney anyway. . . :p

A few random recent photos from me, because I haven't been in here in WAY too long! Samples from pretty much everything BUT my 24-105. :D

Alright guys gotta a question. I think I found my niche in what i want to shoot. I like to shoot cars and want to start shooting moving objects.. Sports mainly.( track events, car events,bikes, dirt bikes etc) so I recently obtained the canon 17-55 2.8. I love this lens but im goin to need a 70-200 2.8 Doesnt have to be IS at some point. NOw the canon 17-55 is a very expensive lens. Should I A. Return the canon for maybe a sigma 17-50 and put more money Towards the canon 70-200 2.8 OR B. Just wait to save up for the canon 70-200 2.8 Non IS and keep both. I think i will be mainly shooting with the 70-200 but having a 17-50 that doesnt cost as much as the L glass might help me also.

I would keep the EFS 17-55 - 2.8 and remember that effectively, you have a 24-70mm on your 60D cropped. My EFS 17-55 2.8 is as good as my Canon 100 2.8 L IS USM Macro, and better than my Tammy 70-300. But, for the focal range, you would have to pry or steal my 17-55 away from me.

Depending on the road tracks or MX tracks you go to and the access you will be able to achieve the 70-200 might not be big enough.. Will you be shooting any night races? The F4 is waaaay more affordable and just as good if not better for daytime races.

Road racing and Motocross are a couple of my interests! Be sure to check out the motocross photographers unite thread! Some real pros there!

I have experience doing that and I can tell you that you wont be using IS while shooting moving objects. It seems like panning really confused the IS and makes your photos not look sharp at all. I always found my self turning it off and getting better results. Thats just me thought.

I thought that was what "mode 2" was for, panning?

Ya, I use mode 2 for panning. Stabilizes the viewfinder and it is a great help!

Not every lens has a "mode 2" setting for IS. Like the 17-55 for example.

The 18-200 was not fooled in panning...

However, I suspect some tripod photos got screwed up! I am not sure whether it shuts down once on a tripod. Does anybody know how to find which lenses do this?

EDIT: Answers here:

You need to ask the right question...

No wonder the 18-200 didn't get fooled...
