Wow that Emperor Penguin shot is cool. Must've been an awesome trip.


Thanks! Those are actually King Penguins, and both penguin species look similar to each other but the Emperors are taller.

Here is another shot of a huge, really huge king penguin colony with tons of chicks (the ones in brown, fluffy feathers). I took a lot of detailed shots but alas not using this lens .

interesting, I had forgotten the King even existed, once upon a time I used to know that (although it probably would've been hard to tell from those photos even if I had still remembered)

cool, huge colony alright

speaking of detail shots with this lens, someone on DP was asking if it would make an ideal wildlife lens for getting close shots.... said he wanted to get a nat geo prize winning photo and wanted the really close up look and planned to use it to get shots of....






7' monitor lizards
and crocodiles




since they would be slow enough to easily approach and he could sneak up on the crocs by walking through riverside reeds and vegetation and such....


unless he takes our advice that may be the last photo contest he ever enters.... i just hope we got across to him: NO NOO NOOOOO NOO and NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! and even if he uses a long lens, he has to hire on a local wildlife guide if you are going to deal with those sorts of animals, trying to walk around on foot and get shots as close as you can

^^^ Maybe using the lens on a remote camera might work. Otherwise he's gonna end up like the guy in The Grizzly Diaries.

I'll throw one in here:







King Penguins Along a Stream on St. Andrew's Bay, South Georgia. Just made a 16x20 of this image and the detail is just superb. I have a suspicion I'll be quite happy with it for landscape work, especially with the flexibility of a zoom.

Fantastic stuff, as always. Just imagine what the lens will do on that 46MP body that's coming next year

Personally I was thrilled with the 14-24 on the D800E but that's another thread altogether.

We should have lunch again, now that we work so closely together

Thank you, Jim. If you feel like it, you can visit my gallery here :http://www.pbase.com/ageojo/venice_2013. Of course, not all images in that gallery were taken with the 24-70 Mark II. I am attaching two more images taken with that lens from a different location, Cinque Terre and Firenze taken after Venice.

Some wonderful shots here, bravo to all.

Canon have really got their ass in gear with these recent new lenses, all of them it seems. Even the new IS primes are very good, this lens looks fabulous.

Wow! And I looked through your Venetian gallery -- really impressive!

What were you using for fill light on those daytime shots with the fast shutter speeds?

Thanks, Jim.

I had my 600EX RT on the top of my camera although it was not always on. When I felt some fill-in light would be needed, then I turned it on but always at approximately -1 setting on AV. Only subtle, almost unnoticeable fill would be best in that case. There are images mostly taken inside the labyrinth of Venice that I felt would ruin the mood had flash been used. In general, I applied the motto "expose to the right" regardless with or without fill-in flash.
