Yep, I don't think it gets the respect it deserves.

How do you like yours compared to the 1D Mark III?

You caught the right look in #1 and the right moment in #4. Nice work.

The best Lens (or camera) is the one between our ears

Of course Mk.III wins hands down, just different league... but resolution wise 50D is great at ISO200-320, especially when you need a good reach (birding/wildlife).

Wow, great shots. For me the first one is the best and most appealing, especially in combination with your title! Well done, great job!

I have a 1Ds II so been tempted to swap it for a D III at times (they are very close in price on the used market) for the superb high ISO performance. My 50D seems to do very well up to ISO 800 for my purposes, though at 1600 I wouldn't print a 20x30 and expect good feather detail.

Of course, I could always go for a 400/4 instead of a D III body and gain a stop.... seems like a killer lens (renting one in a few weeks to verify) if you boost contrast a bit in post to make up for the loss you get from the lens design.


And thanks all for the kind comments.

Well done with these results. Sharp detail as usual, and nicely rendered tones and colours.
