Jess, 8-15L is a real fun lens......I think you'd like it.

The dust cap "attaches", to use that expression very loosely (sic.), to the hood in a random manner: sometimes it latches, sometimes it falls off by itself. However, one can not attach the cap in any way onto the hoodless lens. Therefore, it looks like the hood's main purpose is to "hold" the cap (here and there, that is).
This decidedly Rube Goldberg type of hood/cap design doesn't really speak well of Canon engineering.

Your solution:






Speaking OT though: I've seen (on FM, where else) a photo of a bee in flight done at 8mm (though with the Sigma 8-16mm lens, not this FE), so why not an ABB.

Here's a little feasibility shot with handheld 8-15L @ 8mm....as easy as eating a square pie.
The displayed IQ doesn't do justice to the lens because of wretched light and having to use 7D at ISO 3200, however, you'll get the idea.

Thanx, we've got many more....just in case some expert should say it's a "lucky shot".

The same conditions: 8mm FE, ISO 3200 with 7D.

Lucky Shot, you are using a cropper, you need to use Full Frame and untrained piguns.

Seriously Well done Peter.

I went to morning mass andI guess I didn't pray hard enough, the pesky critters wouldn't let me get close up and personal. Here is the best I was able to do 5D MKII.







100% crop













100% Crop






Need to work on creeping up and getting real close and forego the darkside and control the force for good ABB like you did Master Peter.

Fine shooting, Robert. With time, them ducks will let you approach a few feet more.

There are a few reasons for wanting or needing to use a cropper, 7D in this case.
One of them was in the increased ability to crop higher density files. Alas, by the time I got to the theatre of operation, the skies turn cloudy. Now I had to shoot at ISO 3200, and the use of 7D became counterproductive, because at higher ISO values 7D has a pi$$ poor "reach". Thus I ended up with moderate crop enlargements and poor IQ. That's what 7D is about, and it shows time and time again.

Enjoyed all of these shots guys!! Very nice pigeon work Petkal. How are you getting them THAT close in that pose? Balancing bread crumbs on your nose perhaps?
