Kaitlin leong hold my fingers

apparently a lot of my friends do come to my blog and was requesting to see some more of my daughter's pic. This is one taken most recently when she was awake at late night playing by herself. she's so energetic sometimes. she could lift her heads up about 45 degrees when i put her laying down on her chest. I didnt think it would be possible for a new born baby to be so strong...
anyway thanks to zuraidah, walter, yvonne and many more friends who drop by here to view my blog

Happy 61st birthday to our king - His Majesty the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam

There's the big mama, 400mm f2.8 IS. I was busy snapping pix during the lineup of the RBAF and RBPF personnel on the field during the parade on His Majesty's 61st birthday at Taman Soas . Thanks to Pixels and Grain for this picture.
I think it was Hamsul if I didn't forget his name.
Thanks man.
Apparently this lens has attracted a lot of attention that even tourist and viewers outside the field requested me for picture taking - NOT I taking their pictures BUT THEY TAKE PICTURES OF ME WITH THE BIG MAMA and them :o Happened twice and once with Zadm.
What i feel about this lens?
good contrast, very sharp, no colour cast and very fast focusing, even on a 5D BUT TOO HEAVY and hard to handle on such events especially when I was carrying 2 bodies and other accessories on me and RUNNING AROUND. The other set was 5D + 70-200 f2.8 IS + 580EX speedlight and an additional lens 24-70 f2.8 (L) hung onto my belt inside a lowerpro case. I kinda missed some shots when switching from one system to the other due to the weight which was really slowing things down and this thing has to be attached to a monopod. Good pictures but making me clumsy. I could work faster and there's an even better option to this...what is it? its for me to know & for you to find out :o
