Nice move on the extra body, it really makes a big difference. Throw the 100-400 on one body, and a wide prime on the other. Nothing you can't shoot.

Yeah, that's the plan. Paid $995 for a 7D2 with less than 7000 clicks on it. I'll have the 100-400 II on one body and the 500/4 II on the other while birding. I do have a 6D for regular use.

I also renewed my gym subscription and stepped up my shoulder and traps workouts! :D

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.

Just read Glenn Bartley's review of the 5Div, the 7Dii still shines :)

In my crop/FF setup, I use the 100-400 on my 5D4, and the 80D gets the 400 DO w/ extenders. To me, it's similar to using a 16-35 and 135 prime. I've been shooting nothing but birds for the past few months, and mounting anything wider than 100mm feels absolutley wide angle :p

I've had quite a break from buying stuff probably because I'm still paying for my C100MKII. Been using the piss out of what I have already. But some things that I will get -

- seems impossible to find a grid for my 12x48 softbox.
- thrashing this old 5DII, but it still keeps going.

Ok I remember my last purchase was a BlackRapid dual camera strap. Killer, should have had one years ago.
