Boss of Sony: Canon SX50 HS has a 1200mm lens, and only costs about $500. It also has better image quality than this £99,000 one, and is much lighter.
LOL, I'm sure it is.
phoenix15: it looks like the big brother of Pentax 560mm F/5.6
More like the farther of a baby :-)
Tom47: You can get the Pentax A version for a lot less:
at F/8, the Canon is F/5.6. Believe it or not, that is a major difference !! ;-)
paps01: They certainly are extraordinary. I'd like to know what each was taken with and the settings were. I have a D7000 that would never take a photo like that and I wonder if I spend $4,000 on a d810 it would either?
Not sure on the rest. However #2 is a "Sacred Kingfisher" taken with a Sony NEX-7 and a manual focus Canon FD 500 F4.5L. The NEX-7 was picked to suit the lenses, so the body was picked carefully. The D7000 with the new Tamron 150-600 does come to mind in your situation. Personally I like cropped sensors for the distances used here.
All the best.
waxwaine: With all Light Leaks affairs undercover recently, I presume DPR tested D610 on this issue
Yes, apparently some Canon and Nikon's are the same
Interesting results !!
Galbertson: One other question...i have great nikkor glass gor 70's. Can they adapt to a7r? Is old manual lenses be good glass on digital ff camera. Do only late lenses specific to digital bodies be best for image quality.?
Yes you can very easily with an adaptor. A major plus with most mirrorless cameras. MF of course and no stabilisation. I only use Canon FD lenses on E mount, so Nikon is also very easy to adapt to E mount. The oldest I use is a 1969 Canon FL-F 500 F5.6 fluorite. Works well on NEX and will do on the A7r as well.
Totally in awe of this shot !!. The beauty in this is outstanding and in my book, #1. Congrats and a SUPERB shot. Danny.
You really are darn good at these. Another superb shot in my book. All the best and a gorgeous Hummer !!. Danny.
Just love this perspective !!. Congrats and it makes me feel small. Excellent shooting IMO.
The lighting and colours are wonderful. Again, excellent shot. Very well deserved. Taking some brilliant hummer shots.
Great shot Chris and congrats. Great light, comp and leading lines. Excellent.
Well you have one heck of an eye for a shot. Superb result and very clever seeing ;-)
All the best and what a fantastic result !!
I'm in awe mate, Just SUPERB !! Big congrats on this shot.
Oh how I wish this was mine :-) Just fantastic. Top shot and love the head on perspective, it ticks all the boxes this shot.
Congrats and superb work and shot !!
Going on shooting for nearly 45 years and when you think you have seen most things ............. naaa you haven't, LOL.
I would say get a grip, but it doesn't need any more, my goodness.
Hank3152: Bugs worked out yet? On multiple displays the left/right arrows blink and are hesitant to advance to the next pic.
Thanks Richard. Its not that big a deal mate. Double clicking works on those arrows anyway. Must say, darn nice job !!. Very impressed with it after all these years.
Does that in IE8 here as well. Looks good and nice layout. Just those arrows don't seem to want to click. They work with a double click though, still flash on and off.
Oh my goodness. Top shot and darn good work on this. Beautiful and IMO, don't crop the RH side. I love the comp as is. Wonderful sharp details, I wish this was mine.
All the best, EXCELLENT !!
Top shot and not only an excellent shot, but excellent work from who is behind it. Congrats :-)
go see the macro shots on this site. Fantastic!!!
I like my subjects breathing and alive ;-)
