Thanks very much! Not too many birds you can do this with of course, but Herons can stand motionless for ages, so it worked. :)

The 400 f/5.6L is a great lens at a very good price, but, with my limited budget, I need a bit more versatility. That is why the Tamron lens has my attention.

Definitely, everyone has different needs... and what makes sense for one may not make sense for the other. Budget, shooting style and personal preference all coming into play. All my comments in this thread coming from a perspective of wanting the best possible quality at the long end of the spectrum.

One thing I do miss after getting rid of my Sigma is being able to stay put, hidden from what I'm shooting and being able to compose without stepping back and possibly scaring away the subject. But then I remember all the missed or out of focus BIF shots due to the slow AF and the image quality comparisons. Trade offs.

Eventually I'd love to have a long prime and a long zoom for versatility in a two camera set up. And that's why I'd be interested in this lens and how it compares to whatever Canon comes up with as a replacement to the 100-400.

Yeah, definitely! :) One of my favorite shots that I've taken, was a heron fishing at a waterfall. It was perfectly still, allowing for a long exposure to get the waterfall blur in the background. All I had was a 55-250 at the time.

Yes, almost any other bird and it wouldn't have worked. Great shot.

Then you are in the wrong thread, and should buy one of the big white lenses. This is a thread who looks for the best budget option.

And that's why I'd be interested in this lens and how it compares to whatever Canon comes up with as a replacement to the 100-400.

The 100-400 is old. And has kept the price for a huge number of years. The price here in Sweden is about 25% lower than when I bought it a number of years ago - thank you currency.

But be prepared for a huge price increase if/when Canon replaces it. When I bought it, it was about 65% of a 300/2.8 Mk I. Consider if a 100-400 Mk II would be magic, but 65% of the price of the 300/2.8 Mk II.

Don't think I'm in the wrong thread, not when part of the discussion I've been responding to dealt with the merits of this lens vs. lenses some of us already own and use. The 400 f/5.6 in particular. Budget is important, obviously. But it's not the only topic of this thread. At this point, we don't even know what this lens will cost...

But be prepared for a huge price increase if/when Canon replaces it. When I bought it, it was about 65% of a 300/2.8 Mk I. Consider if a 100-400 Mk II would be magic, but 65% of the price of the 300/2.8 Mk II.

No doubt.

How about this egret? It was a 92 second exposure! I was playing with long exposures, and was surprised to see him show up in my shot.

I love my Canon 100-400, but if the new Tammy comes anywhere close to the optical quality, I will take a serious look at it--an extra 200 mm would be worth it…

All it has to do is beat the 100-400 with a 1.4 tcon and I'm sold.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Oh dear, technical stuff! You have no idea how intuitive a shooter I am and how much your reasoning goes over my head. But the outcome I do understand and my, that does sound nice! :)

You're assuming my dodgy logic is accurate of course ;)

Indeed. But sadly for me they usually stand motionless on an island in the middle of a lake, many tens of meters away :(
