Everglades at 70-200mm

It’s been a while since I posted any pictures taken with my Canon 5D Mark III. Indeed, it’s been a while since I’ve used it at all. That’s not good (although it does say a lot about how much I like my Fuji kit).

I moved to Florida in July, but so far I only pulled the beast out once when we went out to film parts of a story in Everglades National Park. It wasn’t my best work, and I need to go back sooner than later.

I borrowed my friend’s 70-200mm that day, and although I had taken a few shots with one a while back (with another friend at another US National Park) this time I got a better feel for it. I didn’t click the shutter as many times as I should have, but here are some of my favorite shots from that day. Most of them were taken on the stomping grounds of a master photographer and champion of the Everglades.

Bottom line – this is one hell of a lens. It’s extremely sharp and fun to use. It’s just not a focal range that I am used to shooting with, but hopefully that will change soon. I almost bought it for myself as a Christmas gift… but I’ll wait a little longer. I’ll probably take my Fuji with me on my next overseas trip (to Jamaica), but there is no doubt that I need to start playing with my Mark III again.
