Good stuff. Nice DoF and perfect lighting and focus.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

I was curious if anyone here has any hands on experience with the 7D. I currently have a 30D and was headed to get the 50D until I saw this one came out. I currently have a 24-70 2.8L that I use as my everyday lense and was going to purchase a 70-200 2.8L to go with it. I photograph my son mostly as hes getting into sports now.
Also, after doing some reading it seems the 70-200 non IS is the way to go for shooting mostly moving objects and the IS is best suited for still shots. Any truth to that from anyone with experience with them?

IS is really good for low light because ypou can shoot at 1/30 of a sec and still track objects. If you are with a tripod you have to turn it off. I have had a 70-200 f 4 and now have a 70-700 2,8 IS and there is a world of difference.
All I've heard if great things about the 7d. I own a 50D and LOVE it s I imagine the 5D is even better since it's basically an improved 7D.

Anyone get any new gear for Christmas?

I got a photographer's vest to carry all your gear on commando style but I don't think I would ever wear it so I'm taking it back.

You mean wear your vest and nothing else? It would certainly be a bold choice. I suppose it depends on what you're shooting. I wouldn't recommend a Kings' game, but it might be OK for the T-birds.

Shot at sunset with a polarizing filter. PP with Nik Silver Efex Pro - basically, a b&w conversion with a yellow filter effect.

I ended up getting the 7D, 70-200 2.8 IS, 100-400L and a 430ex flash. That hurt, but I should be set for awhile. I can't wait to get out and use them.
