Received my 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L a couple days ago. Went out to test focus when this guy came by. I had three seconds to acquire, focus and shoot. Only had it in single frame mode instead of burst - wasn't expecting him.

Very nice catch! Looks like the lens is working well so far :)

Thanks! I'm really liking this lens after about 75 frames. BIF will take a lot of practice but I'm up to the challenge!

Got this one yesterday.

Doing great! This is, by far, my favorite lens that I've shot with to date.

Congrats on the new lens. I got my 100-400 about a year ago and have been loving it since day one.

To increase focus speed use the focus limiter switch. Set it to 6m- infinity.
Nice Hawk photo.

Yes, but it looks like you're well on your way - very nice shot.

Had my 7D & 100-400 since Christmas & so far am loving using it. Still getting used to it, but can already see improvements in what I had previously.
