Thumbs up Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM - AKA The Dust Pump

Does anyone have any sample pictures using a 100-400lis lens with a 20D? I am looking for pictures at full and medium zoom. I am really considering this lens soon and would like some feedback. Thanks. I have also considered the 300mm prime, but I think this lens would work better for what I have in mind hence the post.

These galleries were all done(except where stated otherwise) with a 100-400 IS L and a 1D MII.

A mix, mostly on the long end, but often 200-300mm:

Butterflies, usually around 150-250mm, with tubes:

Here are a couple of shots at 400 with the Canon 1.4 T con AND the kenko 2x T con stacked. Pretty sharp, I'd say.

I think that it would still be a pretty darn good lens for those of use that don't have a 1 series camera.

Nice shots Marko.

I took these at the San Francisco Zoo with a 100-400 and a "lowly" D30.

Those are amazing pictures. I'm probably going to the Bronx Zoo tomorrow with my lowly 70-200 F2.8 IS and 1.4 teleconverter. Don't think I'll be able to zoom in that close though, unfortunately.

But why the fence between you and the big cat? Couldn't you have just gone in the enclosure, snapped a few quickies, and beat a hasty retreat?

I tried that once. Given all the excitement of photographing such a glorious animal I totally forgot about the "retreat" part, let alone "hasty."

Heh, I didn't want to be kitty bait. But actually, the fence is a totally enclosed cage in this case. No way to shoot without a fence in the way.

The shot of the cat looking longingly through the fence was of course the statement I was trying to make.

And make it you did. Off to the zoo tomorrow. Not hopeful my shots will come out anywhere near as good as yours.
