    Nice shot of the Herons, it might be my monitor but they seem a little underexposed? The snow looks more like 30% grey, to me.

    Took this just yesterday, not my best but still OK.

    Nice shot Joel. I like how there is some vignetting to emphasize the subject, is this post processing or just exaggerating the already present vignetting of the lens?

    Here is a another one by me....

    My choice would be the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 non-IS since sports would be your main love, in decent lighting you'll do fine without IS for portraits (given your budget). I have more confidence in the...

    I highly doubt that link, I just can't see a compromise lens outperforming a top of the line professional prime lens even with extenders.

    If the IQ is surprisingly good I would definitely consider it. And I will still have a few bucks left over from selling my 600 for something else.

    15-85mm sounds like a good choice but mabye not good enough to justify the upgrade? In that case a 17-55mm f/2.8 may be in line with better IQ and faster aperture (although not really a big plus for...

    Or if you are like me who shoots vertical as much as horizontal position the shutter button and other controls are very useful.

    There are a few things that the 6D has over the it but overall the 5D III is a better camera. If you have the money the 5D III is the way to go (excluding the 1DX of course).

    Extenders technically slow the AF 50% for the 1.4 and 75% (Or 100%, can't rember for sure.) for the 2X. But like the others pointed out the AF is reasonably fast even with extenders and unless you...

    Yes, it's helps for static photos as well. I have it on my 60D and it's great!

    +1

    I use DxO and it has the best noise reduction I know of and the best IQ. There are other programs that are pretty good to but DxO has the edge.

    Black Dog,

    I'm not sure what you mean by 800 ISO looks "Gross". I had the XTi and even at 1600 ISO it was very reasonable after NR, even before NR it wasn't bad.
