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.

Annie Thorisdottir (7)

The 2013 CrossFit Games season is here!  A sold out crowd at South Brooklyn CrossFit got to stand just a few feet away from the remarkable and photogenic Annie Thorisdottir.  Annie moved with focus and determination.   She never broke pace, for the 10 minute AMRAP workout, and the crowd went nuts.  She showed us why she is the champ, she glowed, she smiled, I think she even pranced.
