My brand spankin' new 7D arrived last night - just in time for F1 weekend. Got the 18-135 kit lens with it, and renting a 100-400L. Now just praying it doesn't rain!

I'm going to have to agree, it would make for some cool shots.

Saw there was some discussion about Circuit of the Americas (COTA). Went to COTA this year for the WEC/ALMS and posted some photo stories and camera settings used, as well as a photo walk around to give you an idea on how large this track is. Apart from the grandstands, a 400mm on a full-frame camera is needed. I used a Canon 5DIII and 300mm IS II with 1.4x extender III (420mm). Hope this helps.

Thanks. I rented the 100-400L with my new 7D and was very happy with the results from my turn 15 seats (20 rows up). Also spent some time in turn 4 on Friday and that lens was great from there as well.

There were some times I wish I had some additional reach from turn 4 - getting the cars as they approach, and then a rear view. Also I've seen some friend's shots from turn 9 with a 500mm lens and those were awesome.

For the next event at COTA I'll probably rent the SIgma 50-500 (or 150-500) and see how I like those compared to the Canon 100-400L.
