Guess what? Pro photographers also have a "Holiday Gift Wish List." Here's mine.
Canon 200-400mm IS zoom with built-in 1.4x teleconverter. I borrowed this lens from Canon's CPS for my recent Kenya photo safari. I miss it . . . and Kenya.
My guess is that the 200-400 will remain on my wish list. However, the new Canon 100-400mm IS lens is a possibility.
Induro Gimbal Head. I am happy with my hand-held BIF (birds in flight) images, but I think this accessory would help me get even sharper shots with longer lenses.
Hey! Pro photographers need to take a break, too. I take a break with music. The Korg King Analog Modeling Synthesizer keyboard (recommended by my friend Scott Kelby) would be a nice addition to my jam sessions.
FYI: Many of my photographer friends play music.
Bose MIE2 Mobile Headset In-Ear Headphones would make my waiting for a shot much more fun!
Above: Yes, waiting pays off!
