When I first saw the ad on TV a few days ago, what struck me was that the two "photographers" were going through all that effort to compete with each other over trying to get a picture of a turkey vulture. Most wildlife photographers that I know, when they see a turkey vulture, shrug their shoulders and don't even bother to take a picture of it.

Absolutely Les, everyone knows the Black Vulture is a much better capture!

Well a couple of things the continuity police should pick them up on

Canon man mounts lens onto a 1 series.



Then takes aim and is using a 9 point AF system camera




Plus the Nikon guy brought a much bigger gun to the fight

Also, as Ian's post shows, that is not a vulture but a California Condor, a very endangered species only re-introduced to the wild in the last few years. You can see the ID tag (#18) and locator antenna on the wings. Most photographers wouldn't shrug at such a bird. But they are fairly commonly visible from the south rim of the Grand Canyon.

The guy on the dark side is ignoring basic traffic laws.

Did the ad make you want to buy a Land Rover, or do you drive one already?

Tragedy! I was thinking about that Land Rover. But now, knowing that Nikon shooters use it ... - itīs out of my mind ...

So all you guys care about is the camera and the car. I think I belong to the wrong forum.

That makes more sense. Given that I live in an area where I see turkey vultures every day and that I have never seen a condor, I saw the head and made a careless ID. In any case, if I had been making the commercial, with the similarity in appearance between the vulture and the condor, I think I might have chosen to use a golden eagle. But that may be why they don't pay me to create commercials.

Land Rovers are junk.

Land Cruisers are the most over-built/engineered cars on the road.
