Switching to Sony/Selling All My Canon Gear

What’s Up

I had a wonderful Thursday morning with a private client from CT, Leon Shapiro. He was a quick study. When we met he said, “I cannot make any sharp images once I add the 1.4X TC to the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II.” I chose not to believe him. Right off the bat, he began making sharp images with the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II lens, my 2X III TC, and his 5D Mark II. Within the hour he was making great images using rear focus (which he thinks he might have heard of before…) And oh, did I mention that when we chatted on the cliffs on Wednesday morning he had been so frustrated by digital exposure that he had disabled blinkies. I had him set up in Manual mode and within minutes he began making perfect exposures without a problem. And that was before he hired me πŸ™‚

The Streak

Today’s blog post marks 147 days in a row with a new educational blog post. Assuming that I will be making the trip to Namibia on April 11, this streak will come to an end soon. As always–and folks have been doing a really great job recently–please remember to use our B&H links for your major gear purchases. For best results use one of our many product-specific links; after clicking on one of those you can continue shopping with all subsequent purchases invisibly tracked to BAA. Your doing so is always greatly appreciated. Please remember: web orders only. Please remember that if you are shopping for items that we carry in the BAA Online Store (as noted in red at the close of this post below) we would appreciate your business.
