This is slightly OT and I know it has been discussed to death. But I wanted to ask my question here if it's okay (we can take the discussion elsewhere if it's more appropriate but since you guys have seen my photos, I felt that you could offer some advice).

I just purchased a 6D Friday night, but am concerned about the appropriateness for birding plus the cost. The 7D was my other serious consideration, along with a 60D. Anything is a huge upgrade from my 30D, and the 7D (and especially the 60D) would afford me to be able to buy another nice lens and a speedlite. I won't get another birding lens right now but have my eye on a 70-200 2.8 non-IS (for my kids' soccer games) and a 24-105 to replace my 17-85.

I'm obviously not a pro but absolutely love doing this and am shooting every day. I had thought with the price point of the 6D right now, I could get a FF and 'move up'. But now I'm wondering if I should get a 7D or 60D and wait down the road to get a FF when I can afford one with a more AF points, etc.

Sorry for interrupting the flow of these beautiful pictures, but I'd love some feedback. Thanks. :)

I dont know Canon...but a lot of the wildlife images are done with crop bodies. not to say FF isn't good for wildlife, but DX is cheaper than long glass ... if you can get something like FF D800 ( this is Nikon with 36MP) you can crop a lot and still get usable images.

and as you will find out 70-200 is a bit short even on a crop body, can be used for some wildlife, but is more sport/people kind of glass IMHO
04/02/2013 11:27:12 AM · #55
ohh and just to add... for this kind of images you dont need more focus points ( I use only 9 for wildlife) what you need is faster focusing, and that is why you need to dial that down, because camera/focus can function faster with less focus points to process..resulting in faster focus and better % of keepers

Light flowing through any particular lens casts the same image on a sensor, regardless of whether it is a cropped sensor or a full frame sensor. The multiplier effect of cropped sensor bodies is only an apparent magnification. I don't wish to start any arguments about this. As always, I could be wrong.

6d is a very nice one. I love all the new features. 70-200 2.8 is nice for soccer games I think (perhaps not enough for the dark winter time). As for birds, I bought a "cheap", but perhaps not always so practical, 500mm mirror lens, made my first two photos of this side challenge with it.

oh you are correct..light is same and image is same ...but if you have FF glass than on DX you use only center of your glass since that is what you see with apparent magnification (1.5 on Nikon DX and 2.0 on new d7100 with 1.3 crop)

From yesterday - my 10-yr-old son went with me and used the 30D (I used the 6D). He's hooked. Now he wants a zoom lens. I told him he had to earn it... :)

Maria all of your photos are very small - showing as thumbnails. Can you upload them again?

Odd. Yes, I can, but we're traveling and walking out the hotel door right now. I'll do it tonight... The upload sizes aren't any different - wonder what happened. Hmmm.

ETA --- I'm having trouble with the uploader this morning. So I used the drag-and-drop feature. I bet that has something to do with it. I'll try again later this evening...

Saw a bunch of birds today going out for a walk in a Rochester area park, but the park is known for its chickadees and their preferred way of eating.

I thought it was about time I contributed to this side challenge (comments will have to come later when I get some time sorry) so I went out to one of my local waterholes. It was late in the afternoon and heavily overcast.

I will need some help in identifying some of these birds please, and also let me know if I have made mistakes with the ones I think I know.
