On Rare Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM goes on sale in UK article (218 comments in total)
In reply to:

BBViet: With a lens that big you can probably get 10 shots off before the AF motor sucks all the juice out of the battery.

Have you ever heard of a rear focusing system?

In reply to:

migus: Pro: Less solar / IR heat absorption => Cooler operation, better for sensor and battery life.

Con: Visibly striking from distance; hence no war zone or safari operations. Arguably gimmicky, though trendy for some :-)

Seems that Canon's innovation has moved to cosmetics :-(

Pro: it will look amazingly great with EF 300/2.8L IS II and other white Canon telephoto lenses. :)

fuxicek: why is white plastic $150 more expensive than the black one?

Because the meaning of the color white is purity, innocence, wholeness and completeness. :)

On Behind the Shot: Shredded article (84 comments in total)
In reply to:

munro harrap: Well, let's see now. It's the wrong lens and the ice and mountain are way too far apart, BECAUSE the decision was made to use the wrong lens-hence story about risks and water, etc, quite unnecessarty (a new word?)

I would be lower down and further back with another lens, allowing the light catching the ice to have greater contrast and texture than from too far above, as here. This would close the gap between the mountain and the ice itself, also giving me more time (not going into the water) and the option to shoot horizontal AND vertical, and wait for the light to change, shooting at intervals.

I check out the best lens once I had EXACTLY the viewpoint I wanted.

I dont manipulate in PP except to raise contrast maybe and reduce noise (not a "creative photographer" Reality is Sacred!)

And I might use APS-C to get that depth of field, but filters, no, they ruin so many documentaries on TV already, j'en ai horreur de ca.

But then, it's not my picture

pbailey4: Technology over creativity - a deal of effort over a picture that means nothing.

I agree, a cliche photo.

In reply to:

pedroboe100: I don't get it. It's bulky and expensive. Why would someone choose this over a Pentax K5, Olympus EM1, Pana GH3, with a Tamron superzoom lens?

It's an almost perfect weather-sealed all-in-one travel camera.

Hi, Roberto, thanks, the name of the mountain is Krn / Monte Nero. No, I don't have a Flickr account.
