    Hey everybody, great stuff and I need to chip in too. I've been doing quite a lot of shooting, way behind on posts. For those interested, I have moved my primary body over to a 7D from my 50D, so far it's been awesome. Also... I've been playing around with some nice glass too []


    MacMan... not sure what he\she was... awesome shots though. I would love for one to model for me as you did... I got dive-bombed last timea hawk gave me that look. Anywho, I have red-tail's around me and here are my favorite 3 captures (all within the last couple months).





    Canon 7D 70-200 F4/L IS @ F4 1/1600 iso 200





    Canon 7D 300 F2.8/L IS @ F2.8 1/2000 iso 100





    Canon 7D 500 F4/L IS @ F4 1/1250 iso 200


    More to come soon. Cheers,


    -james

    Nate,


    Very nice picture, but imo it would have been better, when the bird wingtips sould have been in the frame too. But I understand that that is quite difficult when handholding a prime lens-camera-combo weighing something like 200 oz...


    Besides that, loads of nice pictures here. I guess this is one of the most active topics currently?

    Tadas that is really great; very nice timing.


    Nate, that's really nice. I would have used the 400 L to get wider framing (that's the best critique I could come up with...).


    James....#3 is by far the best b/c of the composition regarding the bird. Did you rent those superteles? If you buy one get the 500 f/4 and not the 300 2.8, IMHO for birds you can save $3000 and get the 300 f/4.

    Geeee, you are still thinking my 300mm2.8?!, that's scary![:@], I know you like Arthur Morris and remember he has said he prefer a longer slower lens over a shorter faster lens? I hope you listen to him so my 300mm will be safe[]
