    Default First pics Canon 600 v 3

    I have bucked the trend of many photogs here on BPN and am sticking with Canon for now (although I do have a PF 500 ordered but there is a 9 month waitlist in Canada). I just got the lens and have only been out with it one day. And it was a mostly foggy day.
    I decided to try it with my 5D MK IV and 1.4 x to truly enjoy the weight savings.
    There is definitely a noticeable difference in the weight and I handheld this combo for over 2 hours with no issues (walked at least 2 miles, crawled on knees and was up and down on my tummy numerous times). I did not even use my Black rapid strap. The lens is much better balanced with most of the weight being shifted closer to the lens mount. No flight shots yet.
    So far, I am enjoying the IQ but I know it will be better with my 1 DX. I hope to get out with that combo today or tomorrow.
    (The AF seemed a bit faster when I took a few images with my 1 DX a few minutes ago for birds at the feeder).
    Here are 2 images with minimal PP. Just some NR to BG, (increased exposure by 2/3 of a stop and increased contrast on plover image) and DE/TC at 20% to TIFF's. I did not sharpen JPEG's.
    So far, so good. Nothing scientific- just very first impressions.

    Looks good...
    I was shooting Nikon when everyone here dismissed their products....
    Now everyone wants one..
    Canon will come out with a D850 of their own soon, I would not change.
    BTW, I have been waiting 9 months now for the 500pf.. I am not sure
    Nikon will ever fill the orders.
    My local store says they are not receiving any and do not know when they will.

    congrats on your new lens Gail! I am sure it is tack sharp like the old one. I'd love a light 600 f/4....only if Canon had the AF to back it up....keep up the good work

    Congrats on the new lens! Looks like a winner (not that v1 or v2 were bad, but I am sure the improvements are well worth it)

    UPDATE!
    So I have shot a fair bit with the new lens and bottom line is that it is exactly the same as my 600 vII in terms of IQ and performance.
    But there is definitely a big improvement with regards to weight ( 2 pounds less) and how it is balanced.I can handhold and walk around quite easily with it for an hour or two.
    Is it worth the extra $4000.00 or $2000.00 a pound? For me it is and I am glad I made the expensive "jump".

    the image in pane 8 is terrible in terms of IQ from where yours truly is looking, it is very soft and noisy, not up to the standards of the photographers here but I am 101% sure it is operator error! :)

    the heavy crop and under exposure explains the lacking IQ. the hummer shot is pretty soft too, nothing seems to be in focus.... it should be tack sharp....any ways, I don't think these samples represent the optics of the Canon 600 which was, is and will always be perfect IME. I suggest taking a look at Artie's MA guide, DPP4 and PP guides.
