Pictures: I have three folder of pictures from the area and I am still on the second one, so …… more to come. I was lucky to have some overcast days when I came and it made for good photographing 🙂
City: Went into Kingman today and did a few chores, pick up water for the RV, pick up a few gallon jugs of water for my drinking water, did the laundry and little shopping. Such is the exciting life of an old dude out in the wide RVing!
New Lens: Ha, that is probably a year out, only one toy at a time. I have been looking at the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens a lot but that thing is just too costly for me just now. The 100-400 with a 1.4 ext would give me a nice reach of 560mm. I think in a year the price will drop some and maybe by then I’d be ready to buy. I have looked a lot at the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM C lens too, a much cheaper lens with about 90% of the ability of the Canon lens. The Sigma would be great competition for the Canon on the long end seeing as I would have to use the 1.4 ext on the Canon but from 100-400 the Canon would be the top dog for sure! Given the choice and money not being a considerations, I would for sure go with the Canon but seeing as the Sigma is half the price and money is a considerations, well ….. Just thinking on it all 🙂 Jump in with comments if you have thoughts on it.
My long lens for now are the Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM Lens and the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens with no IS. Both great lens but I would trade the two of them and some dollars for the new Canon 100-400mm II. Oh I do have the Canon EF 1.4X II Extender, would be nice to upgrade to the III. Of course I could go on with a long list of all the gear I would love to have …. but I’ll make do I guess! LOL
