    (Another late to the game post for me) I don't do much in the way of events these days, but I believe in either backups or multiple lenses at the ready, so I'm always showing up with (at least) two...

    Late to the party, but figure I can chime in nonetheless.

    If I am tethering, I tether into Capture One. Blows Lightroom out of the water on so many levels. Either during or after the session, I...

    Late to the party, but the 70-200/4IS II does add one more stop of stabilization than the prior model. I'm surprised that the 70-200/2.8IS III is so marginal of an "upgrade" compared to vII, but as a...

    Firefox is telling me that the certificate expired. Perhaps you used Firefox once before when the certificate expired, and you added a permanent exception?

    For me, it's more a case of renting a super once every 1-2 years. Over the seven years we've been doing Alaska cruises, the IIs came out (so if I'd bought back then, I wouldn't have a II).

    A few "stories" about our Alaska cruises.

    2010: I rented the 500/4 v1 but had no monopod. I used the tripod on occasions and had a ton of fun. It didn't feel heavy until the trip home. :)

    If you're going to rent from LensRentals, have it shipped "Hold At Location" to a nearby FedEx Office location.

    My vote is the 600/4 and a 1.4x. 840/5.6 is a really nice punch for long shots...

    Thanks for creating this post! It encouraged me to go back and do the research myself. I don't have an easy way to collate by shots, as we do a separate LR catalog per event, and I shoot my studio...

    I second the vote for the 16-35/4IS, and not the 16-35/2.8 II. I had the 2.8II and sold it for the 4IS, and I'm very glad I did. The 2.8III wasn't announced at that time, but I'm not sure I'd have...

    Let me spell this out for you:
    1) Turn the camera on. Set it as desired. Observe buffer to be 12 shots.
    2) Take one shot. Observe buffer to be 9 shots.

    How does a 12-shot buffer dip to 9 on...

    What do you have that's wide for your 6D?

    If by chance you decide to tether, keep in mind that I did ZERO editing. None. Nada. Zip. Zilch. I used Capture One (my preferred tethering tool), but I...

    Well, T-minus 12 days until cruise time, and based on the wife's wishes and budgetary factors, I think we're set. For me, 5DsR, 600/4, 1.4x TC III; 1Dx, 70-300L; 5D3, 24-70/2.8II; 14/2.8II in a...

    I own it and love it, and it gets plenty of use in a household that also has a 70-200/2.8 IS (old version though), 70-200/4 IS, 70-300 L, and 100-400 II. Honestly, it comes down to weight for me:...
