Got the 100-400L over the weekend and finally got out today to shoot. The weather has been horrible of course. The first is a slight levels correction and the second is a 100% crop. Let me know what you think of the lens quality based on the shots.
Thanks in advance----

(I realize there is a little blur in the 100% crop, but I am pretty sure that is user error since I am just starting to use this lens.)

I am not really sure with this particular shot but on average the shots were 10-20ft from the ducks. I think this shot was on the 20ft side.
Thanks for the comments---

Here is another shot just for comparison.
First is out of camera with a little levels and second is 100% crop right out of the camera no adjustment.

You can tell a nice lens when the subject looks too good to be real. the duck looks like a fake decoy because it looks too good.

it took me one night of shooting a hockey game to get used to it

actually only 2 periods, at the beginning of the 3rd period they told me to put it away because I didn't have a media pass lol

I have really only had it out this one time and only about 20 minutes at that. But from the limited use I am enjoying the push-pull mechanism. It prevents you from having to crank all the way around to go from 100 to 400mm. The fast focusing is also very nice!

Thanks everyone for all the comments---
