Just found this pic of a Sigma 300-800 DG ....
Makes me feel very small..............
ah, but it's what you do with it that counts.
or so my missus tells me
Quality vs Quantity........I know exactly where your coming from..
And it's stacked with a 2x, a 1.4x and something else! Seriously what is this guy shootin! He must have a small tank for a tripod or something.
Nice curtains ...
He's a Bird Man.......
I see he has a choice of lenses to use
Holy smoke! Do you think he'd notice if someone borrowed a few?!
I know Romy, one of the better bird photographers in the far east (and there's a good few of them) he's a regular on birforum.net. He chooses his gear sensibly and not a follower of fashion... note the Manfrotto gimbal head instead of the usual Wimberley, its far cheaper and hardly fashionable but it does it's job (i know, I use one).
Here's a shot of the longest lens I know of (even longer than the Canon 1200mm f5.6)... it's the Nikon 1200mm-1700mm f5.6-f8. That dinky little lens next to it is the Nikon 600mm f4 And look at this guy with one over his shoulder
Looks at my 50mm
I was on a beach on holiday in South France a few years back. This bloke taps me on the shoulder and mumbles something in France, he realised I was English, so says "Can I take Photo" I thought this was a bit strange so did my best pose for him.
Anyway out of his bag comes a lense just like that, and I'm thinking, is he going to do an extreme close up of part of me or what. Anyway, he turns me around, which worries me more, then puts his length on my shoulder and starts snapping away.
I later realise hiding behind all the sun brollies are loads of paparazzi snapping away at some bald bloke (Fabien Bartez) and skinny boy (linda evangelista).
To my relief.
What about the relative size?
Oh mate you're a brave man I go to pieces when adults use my camera and that's not often
would you let her hold that without the strap around her neck?....@pink fairy that 1700mm lense looks like the hubble telescope..lol
Ha I think SnowCat has found the perfect user for the 350D.....
with the the grip though
