Yeah, the old 70-200 f/2.8 vs. 100-400 debate. Both lenses have their own distinct use cases, so they can co-exist in harmony. If you have to liquidate and can only keep one? What's more important to you: portraits and indoor shooting, or outdoor wildlife?

Took the lens out on it's inaugural outing before the sun went down. I really missed this lens and it's superb versatility. IQ is a grand side bonus :)

That's the thing, I really only used the 70-200mm outdoors for when the 150-600mm was too much or too big.

Have it listed locally on Craigslist, no need to sell, but if I can get a fair price don't really think there is a need to keep either.

I think I would go the other way. I would keep the 70-200 and 100-400 and sell my 24-70 and get a 50 prime.

For me though, the 24-70mm is what spends the most time on the camera. I do have a refurb 50mm 1.8 STM on the way though, for only $90 I figured why not.

Nature Canada just used this in one of their blogs, I guess they keep them for future use as it was in their Calendar 2016, and it brought me back to looking at the image, Its one of the first fur shoots I did with the 100-400LII, I was shooting the Pine Marten with the extender 1.4III on not remembering it was still on. While it didn't hurt the image much it sure pumped up the ISO, thank goodness the 7DII could handle it, but who knew ...Its was new too

So...I'm looking at picking up a crop body (80d or 7d ii)to use with this lens. I'd love to hear from those who use either of these combinations. It looks like both produce great results so it's probably down to 20 vs 24 mp and the opinions of those who use one of these with the 100-400. I'm leaning towards the 80d (newer and less $$$) but I'm open to suggestions. Thanks!

I have the 80D. Awesome camera, shares equal duty with my 5D4. Has more AF points at f/8 than just the single center, which is why I chose it over the 7D2. So far, in only a few instances, has the AF stumbled. The flip screen and wi-fi are also nice to have. On top of that, the improved sensor gives more latitude in post.

I see so many wonderful shots on this forum that sometimes it is intimidating to post. I feel pretty good about these shots though, my first "keepers" from my new 5D IV and 100-400mm II I picked up over the past couple weeks.

I always like that one... I remember you talking about how he was peeking around the tree very quickly and that was a challenge.

Congrats on it being selected.

Heck yeah, bonus of being back in this thread is seeing Jeff's awesome work on a regular basis.
