I was at Jackson Bottom Wetland Preserve in Hillsboro, OR over the weekend and saw this killdeer nest practically on the trail. The mother bird made a huge racket with the broken wing routine and I almost didn't see the nest, it was so well camouflaged!

Hope you like it!

Definitely like it! Beautiful and sharp.

Posted under the 7D section, but i thought i'd put them up here also as they're all taken with the 100-400 at f5.6

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

These are not up to the standards of this thread but I'm starting to learn what this lens needs. C&C welcome.

You all have placed the bar pretty high.

Close to 100% crop.

Fairly serious crop.

Superb photos Mike! This really shows off the 100-400, great job :)

I just recently had to sell mine because the focal length ring was no longer functioning properly (went ahead and bought the 400 5.6 so I could make an even swap). I sure am missing that lens! Admittedly, I am looking forward to the new prime when it arrives tomorrow.

Keep up the good work!

Many thanks Michael.... yes it's a cracking lens especially considering it's age, be really interested to see your results using the 400mm prime! i know losing the zoom is a trade off but don't think you can get better than a prime, the results i've seen are stunning (i've been looking at that one for a while too)

Thanks again :)

Awesome pictures Mike!
Michael, I am also looking forward to your experience with the prime. I wish Canon had an affordable prime beyond 400mm. Though the f/8 autofocus on 5D3 has come as a saviour, otherwise 400mm is not enough on a full frame camera.

Here are some of my pictures on the newspaper today morning:

I got a chance yesterday to try it out! It was a pleasant experience and I can already tell it has a lot of potential. All my shots were at a higher ISO because I was under a lot of vegetation (1250-2000) and I was getting some clean shots. I was hand holding at 1/320-400 shutter and never missed the IS from the 100-400. I did use my tripod a couple times but I would have used it with my 100-400 at the same moments, so no difference there. I'm going to head to the lake today to grab a few more shots... Ill keep y'all posted. I don't want to post the photos from the lens here because I don't want to contaminant this thread with another lens :). But if you want to see some of the shots I took go to my Flickr. The first 14 photos posted are from the 400 prime ( except for the Black-capped Vireo photo, that was an old one), go here:

So, those shots were taken with the 400 f/5.6?

The ones I listed yes.

Most all the others were the 100-400mm.

And please state your thoughts if you have some, sounds like you might?

I am trying things myself right now. 70-200 f/2.8 MkII + 1.4x and 2.0x MkIII TC's versus 100-400 and one of my ideas was to add the 400/5.6 later on and selling the 100-400. I got to all this due to the very disappointing 200-400 price tag. Even with a 8K rebate (haha) it will be out of my reach. The 100-400 is a fine piece of glass, but from my shots last weekend with the 70-200+2x, I was stunned....AF speed on par and the quality is pretty darn close also. IS on that combo is better and heavier, but the 70-200 at 2.8 is just awesome.. I know I will have to make a decision, because I don't see me running around with both. The FL overlap is just to great. So I looked at the prime and the only thing that makes me less comfy with it is the lack of IS. Decisions, decisions, decisions....

Well if this helps any this is what I will be doing and the reason behind it. Later I plan to get the same lens as you, the 70-200 IS MK II. This will essentially cover my range all the way to almost 400 with only a 1.4x added. And of course no mag added within its range of 70-200 which is simply amazing quality. So, with this plus the 400 prime, I will have no need for the 100-400 and it will result is better IQ in the end. The 400 prime is a better IQ than the 200 with a 2X converter in my opinion so that is the reasoning behind getting the 400. I would have splurged for the 70-200 now but I shoot much much more at the long range at the moment so I went ahead and got the 400 prime. I guess it all depends on what you plan on shooting the most so you can get the best bang for your buck.
