... and now for something completely different ...

(When this is what you have on the camera at the time the opportunity arises, you make the most of it. After all, it can't only be good for birds, can it? )

... and a zoo picture ... also not a bird if you hadn't noticed. Its a great birding lens, but it is so much more than that. Its great when you want a specific type of picture, and you are willing to accept that you won't get every shot. For example, I never carry it with family around, unless my wife has her p&s to get the snapshots with. I went into the zoo looking for this kind of shot, and sacrificed indoor shots, and elephants that were not at least 100 yards away. I got no giraffe shots, and I knew that going in, and I was ok with it. Due to its size I chose on this day not to carry any alternative lenses.

Love the diggin' trucks. You got up close to a subject that normally you cannot get enough access to get up close.

I'm really not anti-bird. In fact that is what I shoot with this lens 90% of the time. The great surprise for me is just how versatile this thing can be.

I have been to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo dozens (hundreds) of times, and don't know if I have every seen the Koala awake. I'm glad I had the reach of this lens when I finally saw him awake this weekend.

I am glad that I can finally start to get shots that remind me of the ones that I always admired on these forums. (only part of the credit goes to the lens of course)

Since we're on the non-bird topic, these are from my first time shooting bikes

Hi all,

I was given this lens to have a play with by a friend who can't get a decent shot with it. I've never had a lens with this much reach before so when I got home I went straight out into the yard to have a play.

I've been considering the 100-400L for some time but this lens has just changed my mind, for the price & my ability I think this is the lens for me!

I did some comparisons on a dove from wide open through to about F16 & found it was soft up to about F9 then started to go soft again from F16 but in between was sharp.

I showed my mate the results & his jaw dropped, it was then he told me he was shooting in full auto!

Anyway here are a couple of quick ones from the back yard, I want one of these, & great thread with lots of great photos & info


Phil

It does work pretty well for airshows, it's great on a 7D.

Couple of bird shots taken through double glazing which gives an odd blur\halo on detail :(
