Bro, thanks for sharing such nice set of photos. Are you on DX or FX ? How many mm do you require to shoot at such distance ?

Hello. i was using canon 7D (1.6 crop factor)with a 400mm lens for this event. Lucky the focal length is just nice. :)

Very nice captures.....your 400mm is it by any chance the 400mm f2.8L?

If it is, looks like the 7D and the 400mm is a very good match.

Yup its the 400mm f2.8 IS lens with 7D. This combo is not bad for this sort of event whereby i can be shooting from a further distance. But AF wise, i still prefer my 1D Mk2N with my 400mm. :)

400mm f2.8 + 7D considered not bad? By the way, can share what you meant by AF wise?

mind sharing pics of your 1D + 400mm combo?

Maybe i didnt put my reply clearly in previous comment. 400mm f2.8 + 7D is not bad in terms of the 1.6x crop factor. In fact better than 1D cos of greater reach. There is no doubt about its image quality.

As for AF wise, i got more in focus shots using the combo with 1D as compared to 7D.

Hope these clarify. :)

Thanks.
