    John, that's a fine portrait with a fine lens. Congrats on the new glass. I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to know whether this shot was hand held.

    Thanks, All!

    And LOL...

    Bryan's statement in several of his supertele reviews is spot on, every photographer should have the experience of opening one of these packages in their lifetime. But much like the kid who gets the new bike on a snowy Christmas morning, I had the afternoon free after UPS delivered the lens, and it was pouring rain for the rest of the day.

    Mark, I've got some long sight lines in the house, but the CCFLs could be brighter.

    Funny that you mention that, Steve and Rick...I'm going as a chaperone on our older daughter's pre-K apple picking field trip on Friday...I'm thinking 1D X and 28-300L. Ok, I exaggerate...probably just the 24-105L...

    Andy, it was handheld - the IS on the lens is great, especially coupled with the high ISO performance of the 1D X.

    The lens feels lighter than I was expecting, I plan to handhold a lot. But...I did know going in that my Manfrotto tripod+head and monopod+head would not be adequate to support the new lens. So, I took the opportunity to get a RRS TVC-33 with the leveling base w/ clamp, and PG-02 LLR side gimbal and LCF-53 replacement foot for the 600 II (big thanks to Jonathan Huyer for discussions on the gimbal, and to Ben Taylor for your previous TVC-34L and BH-55 LR reviews!!!), a BH-55 LR for the other lenses (see what you did, Ben?!?), RRS monopod and head (another big thanks to Bill W for advice there), plus ancillary items like the RRS 1D X L-bracket, an additional rail for panos with other lenses, RRS flash bracket and a Better Beamer for the 600EX-RT. At least, the rainy afternoon gave me a chance to update some of my profile pics with the new gear.

    Wow John, Congrats on the new rig, and all of the RRS gear. Now it's time to put that bad boy to work. Perhaps a birding trip is on the horizon at the Bosque Del Apache. I know a guide
