I'm sure the accountants at Canon wish they never made the 400 f5.6 - that's the sleeper of all wildlife lenses!! I could never find one for sale as people tend to hold onto them, so ended up with the 100-400II. I did rent the 100-400I - did a week long trip and found it was nice, but, not consistent (about the same ballpark as the original tamron 150-600 roughly)...

My 90D (and formerly my 80D) + that 400 5.6 is my reach kit. I got a screaming Craigslist deal on the lens.

In good light, it shines.

Look at those baby elks!!

The more I think about it the more I realize how much i have to work my camera skills, going to a new body would be a complete waste definitely. I think ill bide my time and wait for a used 400 f4 or if I have the funds a 2.8 to pop up, they seem to be few and far between local to me I have hard time buying sight unseen and spending that type of money without at least putting my hands on it so I have time to develop my camera skills. Here is the elk picture from Saturday i was talking about, please forgive me ha i was wrong on the settings i definitely could of dropped the shutter speeds quite a bit more and got a way better result talk about amature hour! i could also very well be pixel peeping when i should not be and just look at the picture as a whole. The first photo is right after import into lightroom and the second is a crop and run through denoise nothing else.

Ya we’re pretty fortunate here in Manitoba we’re not really known for wildlife photography besides polar bears up north. you do have to work at it to find the animals but if you know we’re to look it’s a pretty target rich environment

I have one of those 400 5.6 L lenses. Loved using it when on our pontoon for birds. Becoming too heavy for me as I age. 75 now with 20 yrs of rheumatoid arthritis. I looked & looked for a refurbished one and ended up buying brand new in 2014. Still looks like new. I have thought about selling it but haven't made a decision. These days I mostly do macro flowers and still life's , portraits & a wedding on occasion only for family.
Here is a cormorant I took in 2014 with the Rebel T2i.

Hello
A question for any 90D owners.
In the Auto Power Off section of the menu, there are a few time options to pick from.
My camera will auto power off if I pick either of the first two options but will not if I pick any of the other options.

I've tried the 1 minute and 2 minute option a few times but the camera will not auto power off.
All the information on the top screen continues to be displayed and will continue to display unless the camera is actually turned off.

When I choose the 10-30 or 30 second option, the information on the top screen will stop showing after that amount of time.
The camera goes into what I would call standby mode.
To bring the information back up, I just half press the shutter button.

I'm not using live view when doing this.

Any idea why the other time options aren't working like the first two options do?

I just looked at mine. It's set for 4 minutes on C1. Goes to sleep fine from there.

I tried it at slower settings and it shut down after the correct interval. Each time I woke it up it got reset to the C1, 4 minute setting. That's all as expected. That's why I keep it at 4 minutes. If I change settings while I'm shooting, I don't want C1 to reset before I finish the shot. Now that you have me thinking about it, I might make it longer.

I poked around in the menus and didn't see anything else that might affect that setting.

I played with different modes, thinking maybe some of the more automatic modes might shut down long sleep times. Nope. Seems to work the same everywhere.

So I'm no help.

In the meantime, if I had to choose between 30 seconds and never, I'd choose never. The camera doesn't draw much power just being on, and if you want to shut it off, it comes right back up. There's no GPS or anything like that that needs to reestablish connections.

Mine's set to 4 minutes too and turns off, including the top screen (which I never look at).


Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.

Thank you drsilver and Pippan for your replies.

I noticed the other day that the camera wasn't going to sleep and that led me to go into that particular part of the camera menu to see what was going on.

I did a clear all custom function settings a couple of weeks ago to fix another issue so maybe that has something to do with it but I don't know why it would.

I just find it odd that 2 of the time options will work but the others don't.

So, just decided to try something.
Put the camera in live view and had the auto power off set to 1 minute and the camera did go to sleep.
Live view turned off and the shooting information on the top screen disappeared as well.

Maybe anything over 30 seconds for auto power off only works when using live view?
