See, now I don't see how I could have improved on the pic above with my 500. Hmmm, lots of thinking to be done!

IQ wise there really is not much between them, the 500 would not have been wide open @ F5.6 ( not that this lens is a slouch wide open ), or the 500 could have been used at F4 allowing twice the shutter speed or half the ISO as well as not having to crop the original as much.

And of course the bird could have been gone by the time I got there if I had been lugging the 500...... Though having said that I do often take the Tripod with me when I take the 300mm 2.8 with the 2x attached to it


A coupla bodies and a few lenses

I got FoCal Pro and dialed in MFA on my 100-400 II. Very pleased with the 7D2/100-400II combo now... I get very good results with heavy crops.

This is the Original Photo:

This is the heavily cropped (close to 1:1) version:


It is very usable for screen viewing with significant detail retention.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I continue to be pleased with the resolution that my new 7D2 and 100-400II combination achieve. The attached image is 1/6th of the original frame-and the birds in question were about 100 yards from me. The resulting crop and enlargement gives more detail than I could observe with my naked eye, and almost as much as my 8x binoculars.Nothing particularly artistic, but a passable record of what those of us saw on a bird walk yesterday...

Is that the Hairy WP? The beak looks a bit larger than the Downy, but it could be me. I haven't seen one in soooo long.

Getting to know how to use this a little better. What are people's opinions on the eyes. Its really the only selection that I have altered. They didn't look too bad when I processed the pic but now I'm not so sure.
