Another to consider is the Canon 400 DO II f4. The lens is about the same size as the 300 f2.8 but half a pound lighter.
And you get 400mm with out the need of an extender.

I rented the 400 DO II twice for air shows. It's IQ and AF performance is on par with my 300 f2.8 II, with & without extenders.
A fantastic lens, me thinks.

Put on the 1.4xIII and you get a poor man's 500 f4...560mm f5.6 actually. But it's smaller, lighter, and less expensive than the 500 f4.

Cannot wait for a 500 or 600 F4 DO version!! Prob another year... then hopefully we can all pickup a standard 500 II/600II for a few pennies cheaper.

Friend of mine's mustang. He has actually sold it although he has a couple of more. This thing held the pro street world record for a good while. Over 3k HP.

Pretty cool!

My thrill of choice is a lot cheaper: Daily driver + open twisty country road. How fast can I take that corner without going over the limit and crossing the double yellow? Slow car / fast > fast car / slow... that kinda thing. Then there's the infinite number of tire choices, road surfaces, alignment settings, but nothing beats just good old fashion seat time on a familiar road. Just out driving people running all seasons and stock brake fluid (cat piss) = quite amusing.

Me too actually. I've never been much of a straight line guy... now give me some curves and we're talking. I "had" a heavily modded Z (350) until last year. It was a lot of fun but I had the suspension modded so much you just didn't want to drive it every day. I got rid of it when I got my new truck and couldn't be happier. Truck works much better for me, and I actually drive it as opposed to it sitting in the garage for months at a time. Todd has some neat stuff though.

Ordered mine through CPW, should arrive tomorrow. I will pit it against the 7DII. However, I have already made up my mind - the 7DII will appear on the For Sale forum this weekend.

Truck works much better for me, and I actually drive it as opposed to it sitting in the garage for months at a time. Todd has some neat stuff though.

This is why I'm keeping the suspension on my 370 stock. It seems to me it's a can of worms once you want to go to true coilovers all around then it's new arms, etc etc $$$$. I also like the compliance of the stock setup as it just sticks on uneven surfaces especially freeway expansion joints. Coming from an understeer nightmare wrx (no amt of modification could fix it without making it ride like crap), this car is lightyears more confident in turns.

I did throw on some two piece z1 rotors (30lb reduction in rotating mass), ebc redstuff pads, motul 600 fluid, drop in k/n's, and fast intentions exhaust is on the way soon. It's also a midnight blue, and you just do not see many of them in that color, especially in Oregon, so it gets a lot of looks, but most importantly it's fun to drive. Anything else is either a lot bigger, a lot more expensive, and/or will lack the hydraulic steering feel of the Z. I do wish it had a bit more bottom end TQ, but it's works fine on the right roads. Oh and getting rid of those crap stock bridgestones transformed the vehicle. Pilot super sports, worth every $$$.

Works fine as a daily driver and shockingly does better on gravel roads than the wrx did modified!!

I don't blame you, if it had been my ONLY car I would have too. I hear you on the Bridgestone's, they still putting those RE050A's on there? They were terrible. The RE01 Pole Postions are pretty good though.

I guess we should get this back to being a 5D4 thread lol

Well after driving around for 2 days I have concluded the 5D4 is excellent but until I get a longer lens I think I will stick with my 7D2 for BIF for now. I get great results with my 1.4 TC but I think slows down initial AF acquisition a bit. At this point I think I still prefer shooting sans TC for BIF. Without it requires too much cropping. I will sort through some other shots.

It was too bad this one had it's back to me. I tried to flank it but it took off and was behind branches.
