So as to not perpetuate the off-topic nature of the replies so far...

70-200mm f/2.8 IS on 7D...for the 'reach' and for the low light typical of sleeping cows  :p

;)

I dunno,,, after walking around the pastures and fields a bit yesterday and today, I've not seen any sleeping bovines, but guess that since they are sleeping most likely at night, still recommend a massive flash,,, maybe a couple, using one behind 'em too. Now, if they are sleeping, a tele lens, such as a 400mm or bigger could also be used to help tip 'em over too... if so desired.

And again - Happy Holidays :)

Now that I have your attention...Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays my friends!!!:)


Ha-ha! Good one, mate, and same to you too. But since you ask, I'd say that from the sound of it a reversed zoom lens would get you pretty close.:)

I'd suggest the MP-E 65mm hella-macro. It is 1x-5x only, so you will have to get close, but it will really set your sleeping cow photography apart from the all-too-common wide angle, normal, or tele shots of sleeping cows. ;) good luck!

I think the 200mm f2 would be ideal for photos of the cows. If you are using a 7D or a T2i, you may want to take moovies of them as well. Merry Christmas!
