I only know that the two males Dag (especially Dag) and Ide from ZOO Schönnbrun, Vienna have bright/orange eyes. Some of the pups also have brighter eyes. Yeah, bright eyes on a bright wolf have to look somewhat crazy.
Haha, I'm yet to try that. Unfortunately, the snow always melts away before I get to that park with black wolves Will be a big challenge though, black wolves in white snow are not easy to expose correctly. But there aren't many photos of black wolves in snow I recall, maybe for that reason. Would be interesting. Fresh-fallen snow on their black fur has got to look cool
70-200 f/4? Whoa. I'm not sure it'll be fun to use a 200mm lens without image stabilization. You would be forced to use shutter speeds of at least 1/800s, and that's already challenging with f/4... I'm sure it's a great lens - but the price would have to be really good for me to consider buying a lens with those specs.
The IS is probably the most important feature in telephoto lenses, right after maximum aperture. It saved me lots of times. It is possible to get sharp photos with a 200mm lens at 1/100s and even below if you are lucky if the lens has a good IS (and if you don't breathe *g*). Honestly, I would not consider a lens wihtout IS unless it's a wide-angle lens with a large maximum aperture. An aperture of f/4 and a telephoto lens are a combination I wouldn't go for. But that's just me. If you are using tripods for your photography, you can go for it, but if you are anything like me and want to shoot free-handedly, please reconsider.
I, indeed, love to shoot only from hand... Oh, now you made me worried, I will try to learn more about it... The bad thing is, that IS version of this lens costs two times more than non IS version thank you for info
Yes, that's for a reason I think only half of the people would want to own it, too In any case, test it before you buy it. Or buy it off Amazon and send it back if it doesn't work for you. I would hate to see you waste money on a lens that is not optimal, just to save money... Look into the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8. It's image stabilized, has a better maximum aperture and is absolutely reasonably priced too. From what I heard (have not had the change to test it though... so it may be wrong) and seen it's absolutely worth a look!
It's the Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM and selling for 940 EUR at the moment. I was told the sharpness is somewhere between the Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8 IS Mk I and II, which sounds impressive enough for that price
thank you, but this lens is THREE times more expensive than Canon 70-200 F4, maybe it is about Czech prices, I do not know here in the Czech republic, everything is more expensive and with worse qualiy
