    My criticism is that you get to go to all these events!

    Great action shots Dan, you seem to be coming to grips with all those focus options on the MK3!

    Cheers. They were pretty intense/competitive considering it was just an off-season tournament.

    Yep, the locals do a good job of keeping everyone entertained.

    Thanks, Jos. Dusted off the 7D for these. Still beats the 5D for 'reach', until I can afford a 300 2.8 anyway.

    Sell the 7D and there's you are!

    Ah, just looked one up, they're quite expensive!

    Good stuff. Try a 2xIII with your 70-200. It's surprisingly good. Or get a 300 f4 IS. An older lens but very good.

    $9k is probably just beyond my limit for my ability rationalise it away.

    Definitely looking at the 2x. Not so much for the 5D or sports, but to get even 'closer' with the 7D for wildlife and aircraft.

    But then you only end up with 8 megapixels or so(?).

    Want to try some wildlife shooting and am thinking of taking the 7D as well as the 5D anyway.

    2nd one in front of the camera is great - awesome timing!

    i'll add to the criticism of you being able to go to all these events.

    Thanks, Jay. Ramadan (no eating/drinking during daytime) starts tomorrow, so got a quiet month ahead over here now.
