I wasn’t pleased with the Sigma 50-500 when mounted on the Canon 5D Mark III.  The 1DX makes the high ISO acceptable, and puts this lens in a category of its own.

The 50-500 range makes this versatile beyond all other lens.  Coupled with a Sennheiser MKE 400, Manfrotto fluid video mono pod, and the Jobu jr. gimbal, this is a unique video, photo duo with no peer that I know.

Kenneth Leverich was unforgettable in 2012.  He was young, kind, approachable and built like a seasoned CrossFitter.  If it were not for Josh Bridges (photo coming tomorrow), Leverich would appear bigger than life.

I predicted Kyle (left) to be a serious contender in 2009 – 3 years later Kyle Kasperbauer takes 3rd place at the CrossFit Games.  Rich Froning (right) looks to be the favorite for 2013; a one man dynasty ?
