This New Camera + Lens Combination is Epic

I recently got the opportunity to take some of my new photo gear out for a test spin. Here I am using my new wildlife rig: the Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera body (with battery grip) coupled with a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM super-telephoto zoom lens. The APS-C crop-sensor body gives me 60% more EFOV (Effective Field of View) when applying its 1.6x crop factor and its autofocus plus 10 fps continuous shooting are stellar. I really enjoyed using this setup. I’m also anxious to get my new Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and its lenses out on the road.

My son, Shawn, and I spent the late afternoon/early evening hours in La Jolla photographing the wild Seals and Sea Lions. If you’re a photographer (and even if you’re not) it’s a great way to spend an afternoon. If you’re interested in learning more about this location, our photo shoot and seeing more images from the day you can link to my blog post: La Jolla Cove in San Diego, CA. If you’re a local you certainly know where La Jolla is, if you’re visiting San Diego La Jolla is one of San Diego’s most iconic tourist attractions: great scenery, shops and eateries.
