I did not switch, but I own both, if that helps.

Minus: You lose 200mm at the long end.

Pluses:
- Better faster more confident AF
- Better IS
- Better IQ (IMHO both are very good, so this is not the most important difference by a long shot)


If I did not have a fast long prime, and I lived in a world where wildlife avoids humans, and I had to chose, I might chose the SIGMA for it's 600mm.

If I happened to live in the Galapagos or Pondraiders back yard, the 100-400mm would do just fine :)



HAPPY BIRTHDAY CDS :-P

Very nice photographs. I really love the way the feathers ruffle in the shadows on the second one. We are a bit spoiled with the light here in Florida. If you catch it just right, it makes so much difference.

Both photos had a very positive effect on my hmmmmm I want to say "soul" but that doesn't really get there. Anyway, thank you so much for posting them.

Wow, Kim......that's very nice of you to say, thank you.

And you're right.....the light here does seem different. It's a photographer's light.....least it seems so.

lol you funny Jake.. lol. My take is 600mm and 560mm are the same in real life with the 1.4III extender. Of which I do use in the months of good light that allow the 7DII to get what it needs. But then the 100-400LII does so well on its own that most just crop that little bit more. As I do when the light is not so great. As for the wildlife... You need to be blessed with a critter magnet in your camera and a animal friendly presence to get the most out of the 100-400LII in the wildlife arena. Thankfully I have both. Thanks for the honourable mention Jake. Its good to be known for the thing that makes you the happiest to do.

LOL Jeff. My compliment to Bob in no way reduces the appreciation I have for your foxes and pine martens. I'm sure that didn't really need to be said.....

Holy smoke!! Only 8 hours of daylight........that's just wrong. :cry: That's one of the many things I don't miss about living up north.

But I gotta say, your foxes are just outstanding. Your pictures are better than NatGeo.....and I've been reading that since 1976.

I've been a bit out of it lately and totally misunderstood your post.

Yeah, our days get shorter here too... but not like it does up North. The quality of the afternoon light here is amazing. I know, I know.... the whole planet gets the same sunlight, but it sure seems like that to me. ;)

And I agree with Bob....

And I agree with Bob....

Just a fun point - while the whole earth does get the same light originally, try digging into the differences elevation and such can play with light color, intensity, and availability. I used to live in Georgia and Florida (prior to taking up photography) and even then I loved the light. I moved to South Dakota and lost that "feel" from the light. I'm in the Denver, CO area now, and the light is a bit harsher (and you burn way faster) than in Florida. The areas in which we each live can greatly affect the quality of light in which we shoot.

So, if I could bring Jeff's foxes and martens to Florida to shoot beach pics in the late afternoon, I would be very happy! Or create a system that would allow me to transport the light to Jeff's location - but then we would all head up there to shoot ;-)a
