Just playing around a bit at the park. It's definitely going to take some time to get used to this lens, but i can already tell it's much nicer than my old Tamron 70-300 i had.

They were a little more skittish today than usual. They normally come right up to me.

Thanks a lot. I've been waiting for a 300-400 mm L lens for a while now. It'll definitely work until i get a 300 or 400 2.8 L lens. (In the distant future)

beautiful shots, it's a very good lens (been trying - but not very hard) to sell mine.
