Day 4

Look what Santa put under my tree. Very nice lens.

I was thinking about using mirrors to use the lens to take a self portrait. Didn't stay with that idea very long. I think this traditional approach worked well.

The prior 3 365 photos where taken with this 17-40 lens. I'll get a lot of use out of this baby I believe.

 

Photo info:   Off camera flash, camera left. 580EXII 1/2 power. Gary Fong light sphere to diffuse flash.

Lessons learned:  I confirmed that setting Silent LV mode to Disabled allowed flash to fire using Live View with the photix triggers.  Good to know.  I guess that is why Canon put it in the manual!    Also, I like the placement of the DOF button on the 5D III.  I can already find it more easily than the placement on the 7D/50D.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for the comment.
I shoot with the Canon 10-22 on the 7D/50D. Not as fast as the Tokina 11-16 2.8, but at this point, I wouldn't switch over.

I have and love that lens! The 17-40 lens is what you want to use for night photography/star shooting with your 5D MIII camera. I would suggest using the Tokina 11mm-16mm f/2.8 with your 7D/50D. That will give you a 16/17mm look on the crop cameras compared to the full frame. That 17-40 lens is a great walk-around landscape lens as well.
