I am trying to choose between the 300F/4IS and the 400F/5.6NonIS for my 550D and I am testing borrowed ones now. I borrowed a 400 today and tested it on my roof top. The photos are ugly because they were taken between 5.30 and 6.30 pm and the lens does not have IS so I had to bump the ISO to 800 and I was not able to get good compositions.
The fact that my skills still have a long way to go is actually the main contribution to the bad exposures but I just wanted to share photos of what I can see from my roof top. And these are just a few. It is an apartment building so I can't build a feeder, these guys roam about here on their own.
Please CnC, thank you.
This one is the second most hated(after the crow) by all my neighbors because it feels that it has an obligation to soil our balconies.
This shikra was kind enough to wait for me to decide whether to try shooting my first RAW picture. I did get one before a crow bothered it away and the photo does look better than a jpg but I don't know what to do with it yet.
