With the arrival of my new lens I can now pretty much capture any shot Ive not been able to in the past. This year Im dedicating it to creating a pretty comprehensive gallery of photos. Today was mostly a "test" day and I may delete or edit these further, but I figured I would share these first 50 with you.
Mostly all of MF, TTD and Maverick with a few randoms thrown in. Ill organize them all later.
And because I know Ill be asked at some point, heres my camera setup:
Canon 40D Canon 28-135mm IS Canon 100mm 2.8 Macro Canon 100-400mm IS L
Slik Pro 713 CF II Tripod Manfrotto 498RC4 Ball head
Thankfully I found a 2 year old 100-400mm on ebay at a reasonable price. I also lucked out that I lost some stuff in a fire that I wasnt attached to, so, after the claim I put it towards the lens and the tripod combo. 1600 total for both but entirely worth it. Long as nothing tragic happens, I plan to have it for many, many years.
I was really scared it wouldnt be as sharp at 400mm as I wanted (and Id seen some VERY sharp copies on the web...mostly new or lucky ones) and after enough research found the last 3 years models to be sharp to very sharp. This one is between that from 100-400 (at 100mm its stupid sharp) but at 400mm from f7.1 and up its sharp enough for that kind of distance.
If you have a canon camera, I can recommend this lens in a heartbeat. Just ensure you get a newish lens.
