Wow! The feather detail on the 2nd photo is superb.

Thanks! If you click on them and view them on FLICKR they look better. Don't know why but they do. :)

Grizz, nice shots. I assume your using the 60D? How do you find focus in general as well as the accuracy using the 60D?

Thank you Jim. Yes I'm using my 60D. So far so good. It seems to lock right on and comes to focus quickly. Now if I'm trying to nail something that's far away and in the shade it sometimes will miss and hunt a bit but my 400L 5.6 does that also. I have NOT tried any BIFs yet. I will tomorrow for sure and then we will see how it does. On static subjects it works like a charm.

Oh and just for giggles I'm going to also take my 10D with me tomorrow and see what happens. :)

Thanks for the info. Good luck tomorrow. I'm sure it will be a lot tougher than using your 400 5.6 due to the size and weight increase.

I had pre ordered one from B&H but guess it will be in the next shipment. Looking forward to giving it a try.

Yeah, I rented the 300 F/4 + 1.4x III.... I had mixed results. Sometimes it felt like the converter was really showing bad abberations/CA. I also was hit and miss on sharpness, but that could be from me doing something wrong and/or not using a small enough aperture.

Also the focus felt too slow to me, at least for BIF. Otherwise wasn't too bad. That little converter though has some weight to it!

No it's not you, I could see it also visible with my TC whenever I used it with my 300mm.

ahhaa, I knew there was something behind all this ;)

No, the Sigma is staying, at least for a good while, until perhaps I can afford a nice step-up (500 f/4 maybe? But I really like zooms, so IDK... Oh yeah, I know: Canon 200-400L)

A friend has that 200-400L but it is too expensive and still 400mm. If it was 500mm on long end I wouldn't mind for that price or even $1000-$2000 more. But very nice lens for safari.

Gabe what is wrong your copy? Is that jolt or jump you are talking about when the IS engaged?

Well, it does have a built-in 1.4X extender, so in a sense, it is like a 200-560mm lens.

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.

I don't notice my converters adding CA to the 300. In fact, i find it the worst..bare. I mean, the image fills the frame more with the TC, so maybe that's making it seem worse than it is. Probably still in the 1px+ range. :(

I only see it when shooting perched bird and heavily cropped. I see it in tree branches and also around the beak I am not sure if it's doing it without the TC.
