    I believe busterboy has a 300 f2.8 prime with both 1.4x and 2x convertors if I remember correctly from one of his previous posts seany, I think he even posted a nice pic of his setup. :thumbsup:

    The Eurofighter pics are outstanding mate, nice and sharp with great afterburner captures... glad you got some good weather. :smashin:

    Regards,
    Iain.

    seany..

    I have yet to hear negative comments from anyone going down the prime route from zoom lenses.

    My kit used to be all zoom until I read reviews and saw super sharp pictures from these wonderful lenses, Even down to my 50mm f/1.4 they are so sharp you could cut yourself on them.. :thumbsup:

    The downside is you have to move around a little to sometimes fill the frame but exercise never killed anybody.. :suicide:

    Picture added.

    The only lenses i have are primes:), only numbers 2 right now, the 50 1.4 and the 85 1.8. planing to add the 135L, still unsure about which way to to go at the wide end, but i love the look of the 35L (though not wide ) team it up with a 14 maybe. Or just get a zoom to cover that end, i did have the 16-35 but i was that shocked at how sharp my primes were next to it, which made me think about the bag of sand i paid for it, so i returned it. Now realise that you can't expect a wide zoom to match a prime, so was a little hard on it.

    But the more i see shots like yours, the more i know primes are for me :)

    Think when i grow up i'll get your lens :laugh:

    Yeah Jamie, with some sticky back plastic, some bog roll tubes and a magnifying glass.

    You'll look the man about town:laugh:

    I sold my kit last week, but the beauty about tubeOzoom is that it's utterly transferable:lesson:

    Don't start me off on primes.....they ARE the way to go though. Rubbing shoulders with a few 'pros' at some shows, most swear by primes, but like the flexability of the 100-400L, as you don't need a wheelbarrow to carry it all around in.... :rotfl:

    Most seem to use the 1DS Mk2..16.7m pixels, full frame Cmos sensor, 4 frames per second for up to 31 frames, ISO up to 3200.

    Makes the 300D/ 20D look like toys....You should see the crops you can get out of 16.7m....... :smashin:


    For example, look at 'mine' and 'his'....remember this little drone thing was only a few feet long...

    Don't forget post processing can make or break ANY digital photo, but the more quality you start with the better. All digital pics need processing to some degree...

    I've got some cracking shots with my old 75-300, and still get the business from the 'ol kit lens if the wind is in the right direction...
