The smoke from the forest fires in California have produced some dramatic sunsets. Here's one from a couple days ago.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Yep, I'm seeing that quite often in the central valley. It's very beautiful, but I'd sure like not to have to see it anymore.

It looks about the same in eastern Nebraska, too.

Very nice close-up portrait shot, Kevin! That is a magnificent animal.

I did not wake up this morning thinking I would be buying a 100-400L IS II, but I caught a local guy selling off a bunch of Canon gear in the past week - and the only thing he really had left was this 100-400 - I saw it just reposted with a crazy price for Excellent condition lens. I technically had the money (lol) and dug deep seeing if it was a wise purchase. I knew the songs of praise for this lens - and if it was in the new condition advertised, I had to act on it.

The real reason I posted is when testing the lens - I knew in 20 seconds this was a truly responsive accurate lens built for a Canon body. I feel like our 7D2 is built for high end glass - and oh how she shines with this lens ~ I own the Sigma 150-600 OS C and my gripes are focus hunting mainly, and sometimes not nailing autofocus in time, or unfocused lock. I could live fine with the IQ. I have not tested sharpness in a meaningful way yet but I'm not nervous.

The Canon feels 2/3rds the weight of the Sigma and the lighting AF response is simply impressive compared to my Sigma. I'm only talking about my Sigma because its the only one I've used. I see the question all the time - which should I buy - the Canon 100-400 or Sigma or Tamron 150-600? I'm selling my Sigma. If you are pondering, and capable of acquiring this lens, its worth saving up longer for it.

I have to get accustomed to the zoom friction ring lol ... its like Canon purposely put in an irritating weird tactile feature for the humour of it, instead of a zoom lock.

Congrats on the 100-400V2, it really is something special. It is glued to my 7D2 most of the time. I’ve had the 150-600C since day 1 it was available. So far I’m hanging onto it as there are times I want/need the extra reach. Plus, it’s firmware is not up to date, so that’s a win as it will AF with my 1.4X III extender, so for static subjects, it gives me a lot of reach. Now, if I had to pick one to keep, it’s an easy decision, the Canon every single time.

And yes, that stupid friction ring! What I’d give for a simple zoom lock switch. It’s the one thing about the lens that still irks me.

Impressed with the 7D2's quick and accurate focus.

Way too many cameras, lenses, tripods, and bags (especially bags, where did all these bags come from?)

I love the versatility of this lens, and with a crazy close minimum focus distance too which I need to still test, as with Biff ~
Will test and potentially micro-adjust with this week ~
