No critique is necessary on this image...I know it's blurry. :lol: Since borrowing one of these during the summer of 2010 I've been saving my pennies, cancelling trips I wanted to take to photograph things and scrapped a lot of copper and steel to get enough money to buy this. Care to take a stab at what it might be..other than something from Canon? :lol:

a 500 EX or whatever the Canon number is for their high end flash ?

Whatever it is, it was worth your sacrifice - that is a great image. I was going to say a Better Beamer but they are not Canon nor expensive??

But all canon's big top of the range zooms are white.

I reckon it's a remote trigger ;)

The new purchase was the Mark IV. I already own the 500mm f/4.

I made the mistake of trying the 500mm lens in 2009 even though I already knew I wanted it. I bought that in late 2010. I then made the mistake of using a Mark IV when they first came out and knew that's the camera body I wanted also. I have no excuses anymore. :)

Well, I'm late to the party. Sorry about that.
Cheers to you! !Image

After I looked at the new picture, but before got to the answer, I was going to say I had no idea what you bought, but I was hoping you bought me one, too! :)

Oh, you deserve it Duane, can I have your 7D? lol The photo looks great, enjoy your new toy!
I would be interested in seeing the differences with the new body as you already had
a superb lens?

Darn it, I should have called dibs.

I'd also be interested to understand the differences between the 2 bodies, and in particular how your mega-zooms behave on a full frame rather than crop sensor body.

:lol: I've had a lot of requests for my 7D...unfortunately (for the ones wanting it) it's staying with me. Call me weird but each camera body I own has some sentimental value to me and why I tend to hold onto them. My 40D has had 2 shutter assembly replacements and a mirror box replacement....that one is eventually going into a glass box and put on my fireplace mantle because it's been to hell and back and still takes great pictures. :lol: The 7D is going to be my back-up camera or one that I will loan out to fellow photographers that are considering purchasing one. I already have a lady in mind to loan it to that's contemplating on getting one. :D I loaned her my 50D last year because she was thinkiing on buying that camera body but her heater went out just when she was ready to order it....now she's thinking on going with the 7D which I think she needs to...this may help her in her decision.

As far as the 7D vs. the Mark IV....the ONLY reason I upgraded to the Mark IV was for the better ISO performance. To my eye I see no difference in image quality between each body. I haven't had a lot of time with the Mark IV but hopefully after this weekend I am able to put it to the test. I have a feeling it will perform just as well as the 7D if not better.

As I've always said when it comes to gear...buy what you can afford and use it to the best of it's/your ability.....in truth the lens is what I'd be more concerned about not the camera body.

The 7D is a 1.6 crop body and the Mark IV is a 1.3 crop body.

Ah I had it in my head the 1D Mark IV was full frame, but it is the MK III. I can't understand why canon put a full frame in the 5d, then a crop in the 1D Mark IV. Oh well I'm sure there is some technical benefit to it or something...

That's very interesting to know Duane, thanks!

Camera bodies don't get what you would like when its time to sell them, sometimes keeping them as toys (and/or converting to IR) is a better investment.

New toys...always fun
