First shot with the MkII since the repairs were made, and it looks like they fixed it up.

Here's a few for now. I'm just too wasted to to any more now.

I was considering getting something wider than my 24-70, but was thinking more along the lines of a fisheye or the Sigma 10-20 but have seen a bunch of poor reviews about how soft the Sigma is on the edges. After closing the deal on a mkII I'll have to make due with my 24-70 as the widest I use, at least it will be a little wider with the 1.3 crop of the mkII sensor than the 20D's 1.6.

Beautiful work, Emile. I tried for three years to get a shot like the one you have of Shorty in front of the flag. Needless to say, I failed miserably!

Thanks again guys.

Lou, that was a tough shot to get. I couldn't see the bikes aproaching the jump, so I just had to point the lens in the general direction of where I thought they would be, then track them for a split second until they reached the flag. This is for sure one of those deals where you would have troubles with the focus speed of the D-Rebel.

I was just reading the racerX article "Sign of the (lap) times: Red Bud", and realized "hey I've seen those shots somewhere else before." Good work.

Ya, glad you noticed that. :cool: They said they were going to use some more on Friday so check back. I sent in a whole whack of photos, so hopefully they run 1 or 2 in the next issue.
