My girlfriend's dog, Max, loves his sticks. We had some luck this weekend with a light dusting of snow overnight and gorgeous sunny skies all day today so when I woke up this morning I took Max out in the -10C weather and grabbed my new 5D mk2. It was quite a test with the AF struggling to keep up, but I was fairly surprised at how well it did considering how fast Max loves to run when he's playing keep-away with his sticks :) This is all 5D mkII, 35mm f/1.4L @ f/1.4, ISO 100 and either 1/4000th or 1/8000th in AI Servo, mostly using the outer AF points.

I can't get over how sharp this lens is, and how much detail the 5D resolves as well, but I guess I'll get used to that :)

Hope you enjoy!
