Looks pretty darn good, considering MF and the ISO. I just can't deal with the MF while hand holding. I tried using my 2.0x TC while MF and didn't get a single shot critically in focus.

OTOH, with the AF functional at f/8 on my 5D3 it's killer, nailing accurate focus 90+% of the time.

Thanks, Dave. I installed an Eg-S screen, which makes MF easier. Although with the stacked TCs, the viewfinder was *dark*. Still, I was able to see just enough to focus. No way I could have done this handheld. Tough enough on the gimbal.

On another note, my requisition for the 5D MkIII went through channels ok, so now it's just a waiting game.

Combining full-frame with the 5D3's incredible AF takes things to a whole new level, particularly for this kind of shooting.

I went down to the park last night after dinner and watched this kite do its thing. It wasn't long before he was successful. I think there may be a chick to feed, as it flew all the way back to its nest with this meal, whereas they usually just go to a nearby tree and eat.

Is this still enough Mr. Stephens? by dcstep, on Flickr

I'm using the tripod here and an 25mm extension tube, along with the 500mm, 2.0x TC, 5D3 gimbal.

The clouds and fog were changing all the time, but I liked how the yellow stands out in this one.
