    FINALLY finished post-processing all the images from our recent Disney vacation in late January/early February.

    If anyone is interested, here's the photos from our 2 days hopping Disney parks: Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.

    Images from the gallery:










    The other "days" of our week can be navigated to via the links at the top of the page.

    Already planning our return to Vero Beach next year :-)

    Enjoy - Jamie

    luvdisney, I shoot a Canon 1D Mark IV body. For the two days at the parks as well as our day at the Universal parks, I ended-up just carrying the camera on my shoulder and only took one lens - 24-70L f/2.8.

    I had additionally brought my 70-200L IS f/2.8 but just didn't feel like carrying the bag around with me. Having just the camera on my shoulder really opened up my freedom to shoot details I'd otherwise skip, due to having to stop, open the bag, get the camera, make a lens decision, etc.

    I'm ever more sure I had a bad copy of the 24-70! People seem to love it and your results certainly prove it can be good. Mine was terribly unimpressive. Perhaps I'll have to re-acquire!

    Keith, I originally had a 28-75 f/2.8 Tamron XR DI lens. Absolutely loved it. Fast, lightweight, excellent bokeh and fairly compact. But, I noticed it tended to always produce ever so slightly yellower (warmer) image tone. Nothing I couldn't fix in post though so I never considered it a true flaw.

    Actually, that was the last standard lens I upgraded to "L" as it was such a stellar performer.

    When shooting weddings, the 24-70L RARELY comes off the body!

    Completely understand, Keith!

    The next three lenses on my must-have acquisition list:
    1) 24-105L F/4 IS - the extra 35mm AND IS would make this an excellent walk-around lens
    2) 16-35L f/2.8 II - not much of a wide angle shooter, but to have good wide angle glass could change that!
    3) 600L f/4 IS - would like to sell my 500L IS f/4 and get the extra 100mm of reach

    huge fan of the 24-105 I really am! and the 16-35 for the same reason as yourself :) I'm not much of a wideangler but when you need it, you need it!

    600mm f4 IS? you're on your own mate I'd love it but I just couldnt bear to spend that much on a lens unless I was going to earn it back. I think that's one for hiring when I need it.

    Well, if I sell my 500L IS f/4, it's only another $2000 or so to upgrade to the 600 :-)

    The 500 was a game-changer for me, Keith. It is tack-sharp and incredibly fast on a 1D body. Even when shooting with the 1.4x teleconverter, it is still very sharp.

    Totally elevated my birding and wildlife photography!
