Just happened to luck upon the commemorative celebration at Gettysburg yesterday. A few taken with my favorite portrait lens:

Good friend indeed!

Here's my short list.

Keep your shutter speed up. 1/(focal length X crop factor) or faster. So for 400 mm on a crop frame would be 1/(400 X 1.6) = 1/640 or faster. It is quite a big difference from your 255 mm so keeping shutter speed up is much more important.

IS is limited so don't expect too much. Use mode 1 for stationary objects and mode 2 for panning.

Set the focus limiter for the focal length you expect to shoot.

Even though you have more reach at 400, get as close as you can and your results will be better.

As with most lenses the 100-400 is sharpest stopped down one or two stops.

As with most lenses, don't underexpose. This is especially true far away subjects at 400 mm.

These are great tips, thank you!

Sitting Pretty

I used my ancient Canon 7D + 100-400L for this shot. :D The light was getting very low this time of the afternoon so the iso was 3200.
