Today I ventured out to test the new 500mm ii and the 5d4. I was very fortunate to meet with Kosin (Greg) and ox0312 (Mohammed Faizan).They were extremely nice and helpful and were instrumental in my navigating thru the new gear.
It seems I have a big learning curve ahead of me and I will need a lot of practice.
We were very lucky to get some great light towards the end of the evening.

New equipment to start the season off. Now I see why you were looking to get out. The first and last are my picks. The first has a lovley dapple of light on the head and the last is super for a crop or even not cropped. you must be happy.

Congrats on the new gear KD. It looks like you are already pretty high on the learning curve to me. These are all very well done ~ Ron

Congrats on the new gear and getting shots of a fabulous bird to boot. Peregrines are a blast to photograph and being able to get so close is a real treat.

Great shot of the Peregrine. You talk about a learning curve, is any of that related to the 500, and could you explain it to us in a little more detail. That new 500 must be quite a lens to use !

Lovely captures with some nice light and background. 500mm is an incredible lens - you will love it.

You are off to a great start

Thanks,
Faizan

thanks Ron, believe me, it is not easy migrating from 100-400 to 500 +1.4 tc. I have ways to go to get the inflight pics that all of the big prime lense users such as Faizan, Greg, Geoff, Herb, Eric, you and others get.

thanks Eric, getting the peregrine was absolute fab way to end the day. Thanks so much for you help in the migration to the prime lense.

Hi BSmooth,
So far I have been shooting with 100-400 ver 1 and ver 2 zooms. A 500 mm +1.4 TC prime has many challenges, namely weight, size, narrow DOF. Even to get the subject lined up and in the lense is a challenge. Other challenges are knowing which F stop to use with and without 1.4 TC, which case to use, which metering mode etc. A lot of these items, Faizan kindly showed me and walked me thru in person, which is the best way for a newbie like me to learn. I did know a few of these things but the margin of error on the prime is much smaller than of a zoom, at least that's what I think.

It was serendipitous meeting both Greg and you out there yesterday. Thanks Faizan for all your wonderful help, not to mention the battery at the end of the day. It was a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing or shooting with you in future.I hope to be somewhat proficient with the prime lense.
Best,

Very nice shots with the new gear. May have to think about the 5d4.

Looks like everything is functioning just fine! I might consider lightening the face of the last flacon. Would help put a bit more emphasis on him. Just an idea though.

Looks like you have a captive subject to perfect that wonderful gear. That's my favourite set-up for birds and most wildlife.
