Still enjoying the 7Dii and the 400 DOii, this time enjoying up north in some (for us) very cold temps and harsh wind-

I have yet to enjoy that combo. The new lens is scarcer than the Tamron 150-600 was when first released. Everything about the lens other than the bokeh seems to be at the level of Canon's best.

Strange I don't have a problem with the bokeh from this lens, but as a hobbyist/amateur I'm more relaxed with it-

Wow Impressive shot!

I'm still on the fence between 400 DO II vs 500 II. For whatever reason, I enjoy the editing process of full frame files much more than the files I get from the 70d... My thoughts are that the 500 with 1.4x may be the biggest one can go without having to lug a tripod around. Basically I think I can still hike with the combo, and yield fewer compromises.

Have today: 5dmkiii + 1.4xIII + 100-400 II = good, but not snappy enough in lower light/lower contrast situations...

Tough choice as one can probably get equal results depending on subject/light/savings acct balance!!

Thanks everyone for posting the inspirational shots!!!

I understand. I didloose some shots yesterday with the great grey because the frame rate on the 5Diii was too slow and /or the 100-400ii was just not there with me knowing g the 300 2.8 was in the motel room and the distances to all the great greys we found (two ) was well within 300 2.8 range. 500 or greater would have been too much (for what I wanted ). I've thought long and hard about 500mm or 600mm and have decided a completely new direction. I'm not ridding of anything just adding a micro 4/3s system with the Oly 41 -150 and 300 when Oly releases. I think just as big a decision on sensor size frames per second focal length is just how much are you able to carry and wield. We walked probably 5 miles in the woods. I swear at one point snow was literally up to my waist.....The 400 do ii really is the heaviest I can or want to tote. That is just an honest appraisal of my age and abilities. Now if I were 40 or even 50......

LOL @ "no nuthatch"... I guess Not!!

Beautiful photograph, Med. Owls are sooooo cool. I need to learn how to find them. As I've mentioned before, we have them in our backyard.... well, a small section of forest. I can hear them nightly so I know they are around. I don't know how to find them. Being color blind doesn't help as sometimes things in nature just blend together.

Anyway, that is a great shot. Thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

thanks Phoenixkh. In my area we have 5 different owls. Like you we hear them but NEVER see them.
The first time I ever imaged owls was in s.Africa where, like in Canada, they are active in the day time.
It was the burrowing owl in Florida--also active in the day--was the first owl I imaged in the USA. After
that it in the Reelfoot Lake area we found at least 3 if not 4 barred owls. I'm really not a birder but I've got
something going on in my head about owls. I hear them when I'm sleeping, dream of hearing them--wake
up swearing to myself they are just outside the window!
So in about 7 weeks I'll be keeping my eye peeled for the spectacled owl.

Medi,

I know exactly what you mean. I even have a couple good owl books that were supposed to help me track them down but like where you live, they hunt at night and try to stay hidden during the daylight hours. That is, as you noted, unless you are searching for the burrowing owls of Cape Coral. I will get there eventually. We've been visiting friends there a few times but didn't have time to even put the owls on the list. The friends were vacationing in Cape Coral; they drove down from PA, so they were the priority.

Phoenix landscape is next for me, headed to Patagonia in a month...the 400DOii will be staying home :(
But taking an A7r for the aforementioned and a GH4 with an Oly 40-150 and TC just in case there is any wildlife.
That way I've not broken the back weight wise in case landscape is all there is :)

Your wish is my command :) The 400DOii is soon to rest for 3 weeks. I'm headed to s.America and won't be taking any heavy
EOS bodies :( I'm sure where I'm headed there will be birds but my trip focus will be landscape....so toting a Sony A7r for daytime
and a Sony A7s for nights, those two and a m4/3s system for all around shots.
