Spent the morning messing with settings trying to get the these little fellas in flight, they are small AND fast. Got some reasonable keepers, but most were just blurs or empty frames LOL. All cropped to some extent.

Great shots! Which case settings and AF settings did you use? Were you in manual?

Thanks Robert. Yes, I was in manual with f/9.0 and a shutter speed of between 1/2000 & 1/3200, I had ISO set to auto and I usually have Exposure compensation set to approx +1.
I used case 2, however I changed the settings of all the sliders fully to the left, which is top to bottom -2, 0, 0.
I used all points AF with iTR enabled.

Cheers
Gus

So the 500 is hand holdable then, nice. Is that the reason for selling the 400 2.8?
I haven't looked as far south as Wellard, is it a good spot or were you just passing through?

Cheers
Gus

Yes Gus very hand holdable, the 400 has gone to Alice springs to another birder who is already making great use of it,
on support though. wellard can be very good at times, I am only 20 mins from there. cheers.

Had it out yesterday with the 70-300L on it in the snow taking pictures of the kids (and the neighbors) sledding off of our driveway down the hill. Performed like a champ, locked in focus and tracked everyone well at full burst, very few missed shots with people accelerating and decelerating quickly with light snow still falling. Quite pleased.

Which kinda brings me to my next point...I am debating selling my 17-55, I just don't feel it is mating well with the 7D2, and it isn't sealed. What should I look at in the L line that would be similar? I can't find anything that is a direct replacement really so I am looking for some thoughts.


Hey Keyan, I picked up a used but great condition Canon 17-35 f2.8 on a spur of the moment purchase and I am really happy with it on the 7d2. I read a Ken Rockwell review on it and decided to take a chance. Super light for an L lens, nice light gathering f2.8 aperture and sealed. I initially bought it to use on my full frame 6d but it's sharper for some reason on my 7d2. I will do a little MFA on the 6d and I'm sure it will be just as sharp. I had to go into EOS Utility and add that lens data to my cameras because it's older and not included in the list of lense data in camera from the factory.

Thanks for the feedback -

My 17-55 wants to front focus. A lot. I'm having a hard time getting the MFA dialed in on it, it seems like I get it nailed in for about 20 feet or so out, and then beyond that it starts to drift into front focusing again. It could be me. Or the camera and that lens. Or me. I had some front focusing on my 60D and had it calibrated by Canon and after that it was reliable and crazy sharp. On my 70D again it liked to front focus some. I dunno what is up with it, it could also be me, I am not a pro by any means so it could also be technique or lack thereof. I probably need to really give it a good chance and work with it a little more.

As far as the 70D....yeah I dunno what to do with that thing. Love the camera, like having the option of using two bodies, like the articulating touch screen and really wish the 7D2 had a touch screen. It's a good camera and I can have it set up for video with one of my STMs while having a heaiver stills-friendly camera on the 7D2.

Still working out issues with my 1.4 converters (ver. III & II) and the 7D2.  Performance is very inconsistent. Most times the detail in the images are just mushy at 100%, and a few times they are great like this.

Okay, good to know and congrats on selling the 400 so quickly, lucky fella in Alice with some nice new glass.
I'll have to check Wellard out one of these days.
Cheers

Kester I don't think I've been more happy with a setup... the 7DII - 100-400L II - and the 1.4III are so good together. I took a look at MFA today and found there was nothing I wanted to change. So I just went out and shot in the snow.

1/250, f8, iso250, LR report 309mm

Tonight at dusk handheld with the 1.4 extender still on 1/125, f8, iso1000, 214mm is what LR is reporting. I have nothing to complain about. I know it would have been way better with out the 1.4III in the dusk ...I could have given it back some light. about an eighty foot shot

Another couple of shots from my Thailand trip.

This Spot-breasted Parrotbill was shot handheld as it sang next to the road.
