So, discussing the Canon EOS 5DMkIII in another thread got me thinking of pulling my own one out and shooting some images, using the classic EF 28-300L from 2004. It has not been heavily used (shutter count is 7100+/-).
A bit of a howitzer of a lens, being a push-pull, all metal unit, but with a very versatile range and having beautiful colour tones. I have a huge museum of digital gear, going back to 2000, and I still enjoy shooting with all of it.
I went shooting in a local reserve where some of our native birds, known as Pukeko were out and about doing their spring thing!
Looking for its mate: 300mm, f/5.6, 1/320 sec, ISO-320.
A Blasted Tree, still standing proud by the pathway: 28mm, f/9, 1/80sec, ISO-100
