Back From My Wildlife Photo Tour in Patagonia

Back from my wildlife photo shoot in Patagonia. Just in time for the official announcement of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II camera. I am very excited about this new DSLR and have placed my order, waiting for the April delivery date.

My readers know I have picked the current EOS-1D X as the best full frame camera for sports and wildlife photography four years in a row. The new camera is better in every respect and well worth the wait.

Enclosed are a few photos I have processed on my laptop during the trip. The proper processing will take longer on my desktop monitor once I get back to my regular routine. On this trip, I was using the EOS-5Ds a lot since I have retired my EOS-1Ds Mark III after many years of service. At first, I have grave reservation in using the EOS-5Ds as a wildlife camera but the megapixel sensor and versatility (full frame, APS-H and APS-C shots all in one body) of this DSLR more than offset the slow frame rate and I have been won over by its performance.
