A Long Two Weeks

It's been two weeks since my last blog entry. That Saturday in Michigan was followed by an all day drive back to Upstate New York followed by an overnight at a hospital emergency room with a long time family friend with a myriad of health conditions and then eleven days in a patient room followed by a homecoming for hospice care two days ago. None of these situations is conducive to getting out and making images.

As things settle in a bit I may be able to get out and about more often. Until then, I'll update the gear in my ThinkTank Photo Airport Commuter backpack, which has changed a bit since the last time I did this back on March 11th.

While the camera bodies remain the same, two 5D Mark III's and a 7D Mark II, there are some lens changes. Having sold the Tamron 45mm lens, that spot is now taken up by a Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM lens. I picked up this lens primarily for nighttime field sports with the 7DII where it will have the field of view of a 320mm lens with a wide enough aperture to stop action under the lights at an ISO low enough for good image quality.

In place of the 24mm pancake lens paired in a compartment with the 50mm f/1.8 STM via an OP/TECH Double Lens Mount Cap, I now pair the 50mm lens with an EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens. I also have Canon hoods for these two lenses.

In place of the filters, which are now in one of the outside compartments, is the hood for the 200mm lens with a Canon 270EXII flash beneath it.

These are the three Canon L lenses in the bag. EF 17-40mm f/4L, EF 24-105mm f/4L IS and EF 200mm f/2.8L II.
