The other day we were driving and saw like 20 or so manatees mating in shallow waters....

Just magnificent!

I grew up with them calling out in Georgian bay. The sound I miss more than just about anything from that part of the world. In all those years, I only ever saw them "way out" in the water, (Lake Huron is a little bigger than your ponds)
Even being stealthy Indian in a canoe I never got so close that I could see any of the detail that your images show.

Haha! It was a really cool sight! First time I've ever seen that before. Super close to shore too.

Haha! They were all perfectly in sync at the same time. The 6 of them landing on one perch was a MESS though! :lol:

Well, posting this question in a thread full of those that worship at the Throne of the 100-400mm MkII will not exactly get you a balanced reply. It will however get you the right answer!

Seriously, unless you need 600mm all the time, or simply HAVE to go the bargain route, get the 100-400mm.

Better IQ, faster more confident AF, much much MUCH better Image Stabilization, all weather build quality.. and more portable. If you ever need to sell you will get about 90% of your money back, (assuming you use it, if not closer to 95%) etc..

Tamron was a SUPERB bargain when it came out, still is, up against the old version 1 100-400mm there was a very hard decision. Now it is a matter of cost and little more.

Ok.
I think I will make the effort and go for the 100-400 (hoping my wife is not reading this thread).
I do want it, the other would be only a bargain.
Thank you

OK, I love this effect! I saw something similar recently with a guy jumping into a pool. I don't know how it's done, please could you share the method you used to make the composite? Thanks!
