Wow. I want to be on that beach.
All very nice - love the grains of sand with that fishing lure, the Great Blue Heron and your cat looks even more Queenly.
All of these are fantastic.
+1 to all the above
hodad - just out of interest have you ever used the 300mm f4 - I know it's not in the same league as the L - but it's affordable
you beat me too it on the new avatar - that was my next direction ......... can't win em all
Bill, I had a 200/4 macro and didn't like it at all. I'm no
expert but I believe that the fluorite lenses have a great
deal to do with chroma control which is exacerbated with
the use of our small sensors.... or so I've heard.
BBW..... that's not a lure..... it's a man-o-war and they
sting like the devil!! All of us Florida surfers know them
Nice shots.....every month we have the "Invasion of the Box Jellyfish"
Stay outta the water.
Another 300/2.8 lens question....the bugger looks HUGE in pictures. How well does it handle in the field. I am looking for a lens to go to South Africa with and am leaving my Canon gear at home. Would it defeat the purpose to go with a :43: kit and then lug a huge lens?
It is a big lens and I'm an old F...... ella so I use
it mostly with a monopod. Even a tripod in low
light. The cat and the heron were both shot on
overcast days... monopod. I'll take a pic of the
lens and G1 and come back.
no hood, then hood, both with the 1.4 extender attached or 840mm of effective
reach on the G1... hence the need for a monopod, etc.
Can i borrow it?
thinking of doing some weight lifting.....?
the mother in law is coming round and I want to show her the new compact that I have bought for her
What great samples... I have the newer EOS IS version and it is my go to for motorsports..... Lovely... Great Work!
Hodad....thanks for taking and posting those gear pics.....MUCH appreciated
That is ONE big fella.......maybe I won't get that to take to SA.
Actually I keep bidding on 500's and if I ever win
I'll probably sell the 300.
I would give a left appendage for a 500 IS.....
The only way I could afford this lens is for it to be
old, MF and beat up.......
I have one Canon FD 300mm f2.8 L to sell.
The lens that is being sold includes a rear cap, a hard leather case, a leather front cap, and the extension sun shade. The lens is in perfect condition, with no haze, fungus, or cleaning marks. The extension sunshade (hood) has a very shallow dent that is approximately 1" circular.
Photos of this excactly lens you can find on gumtree.co.uk or vivastreet.co.uk
A Fond Good Bye to a Great Lens
I purchased my version of this wonderful lens a number of years ago. Because of a change in life style I decided to pass the lens along to a fellow micro 4/3 enthusiast. These shots of the short eared owl were taken with the 2X extender, wide open. Taken with a panasonic G1 (another oldie but goodie!).

Enjoy the lens Jumbotron and don't forget to share your images! :smile:
Wonderful pictures. It’s a bit sad news, because I have enjoyed your bird pictures very much.
Monster shout out to Gianni - talented guy with a great eye. Thanks for the set-up! I guess I better get shooting, so I can contribute to this thread
I am sure i could never afford a lens like this right now, at least not for a while until i finish my degree and start working , but out of curiosity, how much would a FL lens like this cost?
See, the longest focal length in legacy glass i have currently is a 200mm 3.5 that i use with both my G1 and T70 (because there's something wrong with the shutter on my A1, it sticks or is slow) and i wanna know how much i have to save up ..lol
