Yeah what gives...The depth of field indicates a long range lens and the clarity indicates high speed. Seems very top end. Probably VR also.

Excellent shots. Those are magazine cover worthy.

Hi ed,

Very nicely done! I remember your great shots from last year.

When I used to shoot thoroughbred racing I used a similar set up. Excellent excellent pics...that second Boonen & Cancellara shots are worth selling...go for the sponsors, they need high quality images of their studs in their gear for ads.

After the 3rd one I was happy. It was odd. I would shoot something stationary....a tree maybe. 1st shot would be tack on. second shot from same spot would be soft. Lenses made no difference. Now this was 3 years ago so I assume they have figured out the issues. I left the business about 3 years ago and did not renew my CPS membership.

Let me think. Originally we had the 1D. That was replaced by the Mark II.......Maybe it was the II I had all the issues with????? It is passed my bed time...LoL

EDIT....Just looking back at some of my files. It was the 1d Mark II.

there was a lotta facial hair today i noticed. the rock team was a trip. the team car was a new rolls and they drove escalades that were pimped out. the gals were all pretty cute and everyone had black hair and was dressed in black. the nose bridge to the official rock sunglasses was a skull. they all had cute names on embroidered on their shirts.

one guy was "big daddy". one of the chicks was "b buster".

i'll throw some pics up of them later .

Thanks so much, I have a HUGE man crush on George!!!!!

I was looking forward to seeing him in pink, this kit is horrible even the TT helmet looks cheap. . . .

EDIT: After the "Man Crush" thing, thought that it was necessary to state that I am married and have a 1 month old son!
