I just went on my first trip to Yosemite and loved it. Didn't have anything big that could give me crazy shots of animals and what not, though not many were out, but being summer they're bound to be, I'm looking to get something that should give me decent shots of them.
Also, my nephews and nieces play sports so I want a good lens to get decent shots of them as well for family photos and what not.
I originally was thinking about the Canon 300mm F/4L IS, but now question whether it's going to give me enough distance to shoot things from further away.
Additionally, I leaned more towards the 400mm F/5.6 as that would give me more room.
Well now I'm think about Just getting the 400mm, as well as the 1.4xIII extender.
Was thinking I could put that on the 70-200mm F/4L and turn it into a 98-280 (perhaps as a side camera for the sporting events), with the 400mm by itself.
Then at Yosemite attach the 1.4xIII to the 400mm if I don't have enough room and have a 560mm.
I understand the stop loss and what not. Has anyone done this? Is this a good idea? Should I just get the 300mm instead? 400mm instead?
Any ideas or suggestions would help a lot.
