|Canon EOS-1D X Mark II full frame camera|
Still on my Upper Amazon Photo Tour in Peru, testing the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II camera
. The weather is very hot, extremely humid, rainy, damp and muggy. Wildlife sightings is only marginal. The Mark II is performing quite well.
I have left the Amazon basin and headed up the Peruvian highlands. Came across Hummingbirds
at about 12,000 feet. It was an amazing sight. Will fit in some travel photography as well to test landscape images on the new body. Heading to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. I brought the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens. Little time to keep up with photography news but want to let my readers know the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III will be announced next month, with shipping commencing July, 2016. In addition, the EOS-5D Mark IV is out on field testing
and should be announced before Photokina in September.
This new lens will come with the latest Canon optics technology and exceeds the performance of the Series II, which is currently my favorite wide angle zoom glass in the EF lens lineup.
Little time to go through the photos. Below are a few I have processed on the laptop. I have another full year of wildlife photography
tours planned for 2017. Leaving for my first trip of 2017 to East Africa
for a rendezvous with the Big Five in their early summer. You can follow my travels on Facebook

A few photos from my Amazon Photo Tour. The Canon EOS-1D X Mark II works well but the new battery does not seem to get any more shots than the EOS-1D X.
The Canon EOS-1DX2 camera is taking awesome photos from the Amazon to the Arctic, in the right hands, of course. Keep those pics coming in 2017.
