Image quality test results have been added to the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens page.
 
Is the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III Lens sharper than the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II? It is hard to tell the difference in a perfection vs. perfection comparison. That the III weighs so much less than the II makes the III's image quality look much better to me.
 
The Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens is in stock at B&H and available for preorder at Amazon | Adorama | WEX.
 
Rent the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens from Lensrentals.

With wildlife photography, being at the right place at the right time is a key to success. Of course, being in the right place for a lot of time improves the odds. During this week, I spent time around groves of brilliantly-colored maple trees and on this morning a big bull elk obliged, summiting a distant ridge in the early morning sunlight.
 
The bull was not in a hurry and, as you probably guessed, I captured a lot of images of it (at 9 fps). This image stood out to me primarily because of the elk's position. Its position in the opening gave it high contrast against the still-shaded background. With viewers' eyes drawn to contrast, the elk is able to command attention over the brilliant red maple trees. The position of the bull's legs, all visible and showing movement, works well. The head angle is usually important and the slightly-toward-the-camera angle is usually a good one.
 
Shooting at very long distances in direct sunlight usually results in significant heat wave distortion when using a high magnification focal length. Because the sun was just beginning to reach this area, the heat waves were not yet an issue and that problem was avoided.

Just posted: Nikon Z 6 (AKA Z6) Review.
 
Only a small set of differences separate the Z 6 and Nikon Z 7 cameras and the two reviews, created simultaneously, will also share significant content. The low price will be the most significant Z 6 advantage for most. Again, please share the review with your Nikon friends.
 
The Nikon Z 6 is in stock at B&H | Amazon | Adorama | WEX.
 
Rent the Nikon Z 6 from Lensrentals.

I actually own this hand grip, and it's not bad. I use it when I'm not carrying the camera by a BlackRapid Strap, such as when I'm taking snapshots of the baby at home. However, I installed my grip the other way around (to me, the grip above looks like it's upside down). [Sean]

From Sigma:
 
The SIGMA Corporation is pleased to release the SIGMA 28mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art.
 
The classical angle of view with the latest lens design
 
28mm angle of view used to be a representative wide-angle in the era of film cameras, and attracts many fans even today. To accommodate the request from many photographers who expressed the strong interest in using the familiar 28mm with Art line quality, SIGMA produces the SIGMA 28mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, based on the know-how gained through development of the Art F1.4 prime lens lineup released so far. This newest traditional wide-angle lens, advantaged by the latest design and materials, as well as the processing technologies, is now available from SIGMA’s Art line.
 
Accessories: Case, Hood (LH828-01) supplied
Corresponding AF mounts: SIGMA / Nikon F mount / Canon EF mount / Sony E-mount
 
SIGMA, Nikon F mount and Canon EF mount are scheduled to start the shipment in January, 2019. Launching date of Sony E-mount is not determined yet.
