  • The reason they're tricky to find is because they sell out fast. I kept watching B&H and grabbed one from there a few weeks ago. It's a great lens. Even though it's more than you want to spend, if ...
  • You're shooting through mist and haze. Been shooting Surfing for years with all types of camera gear. Panasonic point & shoots, high end Canon DSLR gear. The angle of sun in your shots hurts the ...
  • I see the Sony does have 1080 60p also, didn't see it at first. Nice.
  • It will be interesting to see how those sensors perform at 18 mp.  Once you start to push the ISO up on little sensors like that the quality usually starts to drop quickly. Sony is doing some good ...
  • Yes it should work fine for you. I've set the camera up close to a couple spots where hummingbirds perched and stood back farther away to take the pics. One of the neat things about newer cameras ...
  • Mine will only start & stop video if the camera's mode dial is set to video mode.  It doesn't have a separate button for just video control. I haven't researched every remote control unit ...
  • Replied in Have them both
    Boy, that would be something, wouldn't it? I meant the 400 f5.6, which is no slouch itself. I have an excellent copy as most people do. Rarely would you hear of one with trouble. Every user report ...
  • Created discussions Is the RX100 III ready for 4K?
    Anyone expecting the next RX100 upgrade to have 4k video?  If so, I wonder how close they can maintain that nice compact size. Possible? I was thinking about the Lumix LX100 but I like the more ...
  • Replied in Have them both
    I still have my 400 f5.6 which I used as my primary telephoto for years, before buying the 300 f2.8 IS with both Canon converters about 5 years ago.  I picked up the new 100-400 II in early ...
  • Created discussions Meeting of the Minds
    Discussing the best fishing spots I'd imagine......
  • I see what you mean, thanks. Gary
  • Mine stopped working like that just the other day. The Q-Menu seems to be a reasonable alternative. It gives access to everything needed, unless I've missed something. It's slower of course but it ...
  • They're already out of stock again, you'll have to wait for another batch. I'll tell ya, Charlie. I have the same gear as you and also the 300 f2.8 IS. The 400 f5.6 prime was my main telephoto lens ...
  • I used the 400 f5.6 for several years, birding, surfing and some other daytime sports. Have the 70-200 f4 IS also. Both fine lenses. But some of the best photos are taken in the lower light of late ...
  • Replied in Some Birding
    Yes it sure is. Not cheap. It takes a camera that focuses at F8 too, unless someone plans to use a non-reporting TC.  I'm not sure all of them will work. I've seen messages posted about ...
  • Replied in Some Birding
    Thanks. To me it seems good enough, certainly for larger birds that don't dart around like sparrows. Egrets, Hawks, Ospreys are all pretty easy because they just don't move very fast. The bigger ...
  • Replied in Some Birding
    These are from the 7D II and 100-400 II, with the 1.4x II.
  • Assuming the price of the new 100-400 II is acceptable to you, it's a fantastic lens. Amazingly, it even looks very good with the Canon 1.4x attached. I'm using the 1.4x version II, along with the ...
  • I've compared my 2x II and 2x III in the past. Not specifically with the 100-400 II but I used both of them with my 300 f2.8 for an extended time. The 2x III does look a little better. In my ...
  • Replied in Live View Focus
    They do work, yes, depending on the camera and focus method. I have the Mark II versions of both converters along with the Mark III version of the 2x. Yesterday I put the 2x III on the 100-400 II ...
