Day one with the Canon 5D Mark ll

Day one with the Canon 5D Mark ll... My consensus? Totally awesome!
Yesterday was my first time out shooting with it and the files look pretty amazing. I'll let you know more of my thoughts on the camera when I get some more use out of it.

I also purchased a new lens, the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS. The lens is pretty huge and it's slow too, so handheld in low light it's pretty much useless... but with a good steady tripod and some nice scenery, you can get some great details with it.

Here are a few photos from yesterday-
Mt. Hood at sunrise. Canon 5D Mark ll, Canon 100-400mm lens

Great pictures Blaine. When you get a chance, can you check to see if the process time takes as long as the long exposure time with the noise reduction on. Thanks.

Wow, congrats on the new camera. If I had the clams, I'd do the same. Those photos make me miss the snowy mountains out there.

beautiful work for day one! favorite is sunrise with 24-70mm.

i just got my mark ii in and it's scary how beautiful the shots are. with the right glass attached to it...it's almost hard NOT to take a photo where you say "holy crap! take a look at this!" (btw. heard about you via some lynda.com tutorials with chris orwig.)

either way - love your stuff!
