I do on occassion with a pro media head, but quite often I only intend using the lens for an hour or so and end up staying out. . . . . always kick myself afterwards! WSBK HERE (external link)

Have done a few Zoo visits handheld as swinging the monopod around can be a bit cumbersome and for some reason people get upset when you 'accidently' hit them with it lol.

Great web site. I would love to get the new lens but there's no way I can afford it. I hand-hold the 100-400 Mark 2 (on a 1DX2) for a full shinty match (2 x 45 minute halves) and do wonder if I would manage 1kg extra. I see the other people with monopods and just know they are not for me. I like being mobile and walking the sidelines.

First day out with the new camera and I'm going to like this one! Sitting still couldn't ask for a sharper focus even with an old 100-400 and with some more practice I should be able to figure out the in flight options to make the most of what I think will be a great camera.

Well, no sports just now so need to keep the muscles in condition (ie I carry the 1DX2 with 100-400 up the hills to stay fit).

Much to my surprise I met this lovely couple and added them to the "People I Meet" project.

Great clarity on these shots, and in a gorgeous setting. Keep up the good work, and exercise regimen :)

I like the top picture with the three yachts. :-)

Was the naval ship involved?

No, the naval ship was not involved but was on exercises in the area.

I have the wireless transmitter it is awesome. It has lots of uses and features!

MatthewK wrote in post #18752029 (external link)
I’m weak...

With the evolution to mirrorless and the inevitable retirement of the DSLR, the smart move would be to pass on this 1DX2. But, with gear, I’ve always been someone who uses what’s there now, versus waiting for the next best thing. Someday, sure, I’ll go mirrorless, but in this moment I’m going to thoroughly enjoy this cream of the crop 1 series body, and keep shooting what I love.

My other hesitation is: what will the 1DX2 bring to the table that my 5D4 doesn’t provide? It delivers the shots I want, no complaints, this 1 may be overkill! Probably, but I have a suspicion that it’ll deliver that last bit of performance and feature set that I didn’t know I was missing.

One thing I’m going to have to get used to is that the 1DX2 is my only DSLR without a touchscreen or wireless. Already fingerprinted up the new screen with a failed swipe haha

Kim, the 5D4 is marvelous! It’s been a stout, dependable companion, and I’m definitely keeping it until it crumbles into magnesium and plastic dust.
