I keep bouncing back and forth between my 5dIII+100-400L and my 7D+Sigma 150-500..and visa versa.

Me also. I like the mark III and 100-400 more. I find the 7D and the Sigma at 500mm really needs a tripod to get sharp. I do waffle back and forth between the two. It has gotten to where when I go birding I take them both just in case.

What has your experience been with the 5DIII and the Sigma lens? I believe I have a sharp copy of this lens and have been very happy with this pairing. I think the color/saturation is slightly better with the 100-400L but the Sigma on the 5dIII had been impressive.

I also bring both with me. Typically its the 5dIII/100-400L and the 7D/Sigma. That said, I intend to spend a little more time with the Sigma on the 5DIII.

Thoughts?

Tough life in the East. New camera, blue skies and bald eagles. Not a bad trifecta.


May there be peace
Canon 7D and 5D Mark III.

I typically shoot with shutter speeds of 1000-1250 and have hundreds of crisp shots. I deliberately was working with shutter speeds 300-500 to try to catch motion at the wing tips while still catching detail at the body.

Thanks for the comment.

Well then nice work, you did exactly that.
