    There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.

    Oh, OH! Christmas is almost upon us. Make sure you write a nice card to MS. Santa

    On the serious side,the photos above are excellent, and the 7D is supposed to be a real nice camera.

    The last image with the whale completly out of the water is the best image by far !!

    Truely spectacular !!

    Maybe the caption should read - "Having a whale of a time" !!

    You defintely have a "winner' with that photograph Brian !! Good Luck !!

    Well .. .. I am just dumbfounded by that statement !! It clearly shows (to me) a lack of understanding !!

    Let me put it in this perspective: A huge Mamiya RB 67 Camera w/ 360 mm F6.8 lens inside the Boston Gardens. Up top most row in the very top at the goalie's end. Shooting 75 yards away w/100 iso FILM.

    I did what I had to do - to get the image. 1/250 of a sec was the slowest shutter speed I could use to hold that camera steady enough.

    My aperature was wide open @ F 6.8

    My images were gorgeous. in other words - inside an auditorium that was pitch black for the Ice capades. I got amazing images - ONLY BECAUSE

    I used daylight settngs of EV 14 to create the image.

    Outside in day light ?? and you NEED FASTER GLASS ? that doesn't make sense ( to me).

    I was four f stops under exposed - but pushing the film in the development process - saved the day.

    Again I say, if your using 1.2 or 1.4 or 1.8 to create images. YOU are missing the whole aspect of creating a stunning image.

    Go look & study OLD ISSUES of National Geographic - very old issues

    They were using the only acceptable film that National Geographic DEMANDED by these PROFESSIONALS. Study their images and see if you can duplicate that type of depth of field using DIGITAL 100 ISO which is two stops FASTER than they had at their disposal.

    It is my contention that you do not need to waste money on faster glass - but learn how to use what you have to its full potential !!

    T0 accomplish 'that feat' - you need to develop skills !!

    I am - in all honesty - just trying to save you some X-tra $$

    The Exif data says that all three images were shot at f/5.0, with a 220mm focal length, using ISO 400 on a Canon EOS 7D, and BrianW indicated the lens was a 100-400mm. The top and middle image were at 1/400 second, and the bottom one was at 1/640 of a second.

    Essentially they were all shot "wide open".

    Two comparisons might be interesting, though of course there is no way to get either of them with these particular images. But it would be fun to know how the 100-400mm lens compares to a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. In both cases it would also be interesting to also compare with the lens stopped down to f/8 and the ISO cranked up to match.

    I would expect the 70-200mm lens to be sharper, and that f/8 at ISO 1000 would be sharper than f/5 at ISO 400.

    Maybe Brian has a 70-200mm and some experience with the differences???

    My experience is with Nikon lenses, and in that respect it is clearly a case that their 80-400mm lens fills the bill when greater than 200mm is needed, but switching to an 80-200mm or 70-200mm is significantly better when the lower end of the range is all that will be used. Portraiture and event photography are very good example of where the shorter zoom would be much better, and whale watching or birding is where the longer zoom shines; indoor sports would favor the faster lens unless one has a camera that can shoot reasonable images at ISO 6400.

    ISO 6400 ??? That is a 6-F stop difference (chuckle)

    ROFLMAO !!! (I will pass on this one ) !!

    The photographs posted - are superior - the last one (whale out of water) is truely magnificent !!
