Amazing as always Rob.

I tried to do something like this over the
weekend, but since I can't keep my camera straight it didn't work out.

How did you manage?

Bit of luck probably, after I got above horizon, I had no reference point to keep it straight. Using the the onscreen level while in live view helps. I went up to the 90 degree point, and then rotated the head 180 degrees and went back down on the other side.

Both RobDickinson and Mackie have posted some good vertical pano's and might be able to shed light on a better method.

Narrowed it down; either the 70-200mm f/4 IS -or- 70-200mm f/2.8 non IS

Any ideas? How important is IS in peoples' opinions?

But which is more important?!?!?!

I really can't decide, and am buying a Sub-Dye printer at the same time so really can't justify the outlay for the 2.8 ISii

Depends what you are shooting.

Hand held things that dont move so much - very.
Hand held things that move a lot - not so much
Tripod - yeah nah.

I couldnt justify the 2.8 IS ii, since I use the 70-200F2.8 primarily for landscapes, the tamron actually does better, less prone to flare and better star bursts. I avoid F4 lenses when I can, with the exception of the 16-35mm.....

so yeah, the tamron 70-200vc has been really good to me, and I know it will match the F4IS, and barely trailing the F2.8isII. It happens to have blazing fast AF, so the biggest compromise for me, was red ring and price :)

here's my comparison https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1384687

I sold my 1D cameras after quitting sports photography. I bought a 6D instead. It´s not a sports camera but I could´t resist going to Arctic Race of Norway as it was arranged nearby. A few photos from the weekend with my 6D :

Interesting comments about Abe's of Maine. I've purchased many bodies and lenses through the years with absolutely NO ISSUES other than follow-up calls for accessories. Always prompt delivery with no quality issues....

The old Abe's of Maine went out of business not too long ago and was bought by someone else. All of the shady practices have been since the new management took over as far as I know.

Is will help some then. But imo the extra stop optically will help more.
