Brown Falcon in Flight

This was the first oppertunity I had to get some bid shots with the new 5D MKII fitted with the 70-200 f/2.8L + 2.0x Extender heavily cropped to frame bird. I have been remarkably impressed with the 5D MKII and especially its high ISO noise levels.

Obviously not the best lighting but it’s a great example of the noise generated at higher ISO levels or rather the lack of.

View large to really see the lack of noise.
