Here in Houston they have assigned areas for plane spotters/photographers in both International Airports. If I remember right, Hobby Airport has a balcony near the runway that they charge an entrance fee. I am thinking about renting the EF 100-400 MkII and go there for an afternoon (shooting into the sunset)... :-D

I agree. We must adapt. But no level of adaptation will equal the efficiency of the push-pull. An unfortunate decision by Canon.

QTF

I spent the weekend in Maryland along the Severn river, with a "lite" kit (was there for Family holiday stuff)
consisting of only the 100-400mm2, 24mm pancake and a 7D2.

Although birding was tough, there were a few times I had Osprey in flight and was made completely aware that no matter how much practice I get (in fact I have FAR MORE experience shooting with twist zooms than the old push pull ) I will never be able to match the framing speed I had with the trombone. You just CAN'T play the rotary zoom as well.

I m new here

my new 100-400 II has has been ordered and is on the way but I really confused to buy which cropped body? 7D mk II or 70D??

actually, I m not a professional bird graph or sport action graph and need cropped body for landscape and nature and in some cases for birds and fast actions ...

please let me know your comments in this regard. which on to get?

thanks in advance guys

The 7D2 will let it autofocus with a 1.4x TC, for even more reach (896mm equivalent, as I recall). That'd make me go for the 7D2, if I were looking for reach.

I love a like, but feedback (including CC) is even better!

Totally agree. It's very awkward for a quick BIF to twist and turn. It's more natural to "play" the "trombone." Love the analogy! lol  :p

Here's a couple taken with my new 100-400II with a 1.4III extender. Needless to say, I'm pretty happy with this combo.
