Re: Canon 300mm/2.8 I IS issue

Geert, I have the same lens and use it also sometimes with the 1.4 extender (version II for me). My body is a EOS 7D mkII. I do not have your problems, but I am curious if you also see worse performance with only the 300mm mounted on the camera, and no extender. In addition I have these remarks: I ...

Re: Canon 300mm/2.8 I IS issue

Me too, but unfortunately Canon took it out of it's service and won't check/repair it. I have called both the German and Dutch Canon CPS locations and both say the same. They can't get parts anymore.

Canon 300mm/2.8 I IS issue

Hi all, This airshow season I have been having trouble getting keepers with my Canon 300mm/2.8 I IS lens. I usually use it with the 1.4x extender (version III) on two bodies, the 7D mk2 or 5D mk3. Normally, this combo is sharp as a tack, but the keeper rate has been very low this year. In the meanti...

Re: Canon 100-400 mrk II in combinatie met 7D mrk II

Ik heb deze combi tijdens de afgelopen RIAT zelfs gebruikt in combinatie met de 1.4x teleconvertor (Canon, versie III). Een andere fotograaf noemde de combi en ik had het nog nooit echt bij een show geprobeerd. Ik moet zeggen dat het verbazend goed werkte. Wel wat kanttekeningen: - Het weer was prac...

Re: Meeting de l'Air Nancy-Ochey 30 june/ 1 july 2018

Any idea if you can get to ochey in the morning (or during the day)? On base today but would like to be outside tomorrow. However the road into Ochey was closed by police around 0800hrs. Anyone know if it's open earlier? Say 6 or 7?

Re: Meeting de l'Air Nancy-Ochey 30 june/ 1 july 2018

Just a short question about your experiences regarding airshows at Nancy in the past: Is there any chance to find a spot in the village of Ochey or will this area be entirely closed by the authorities? Regarding the runway direction I am not too happy with the sun situation and consider to find ano...
