Apart from the walking my main reason for wanting to go to Skye is the opportunity to sea white tailed eagles in the wild. There are only 40 -50 pairs in the UK mainly on the west of Scotland after re-introduction in the 70s and 80s. After carrying my 150-600 up hill and down dale with narry a sighting, it turned out our best sighting happened just outside the hostel we were staying at! Lucky enough to see a pair trying to do their mating dance but being badgered by an obnoxious crow that just wouldn't give up.
I know they're not the best quality, all big crops but anyway......

Looks to me that they should / could have easily kicked the crows butt with the size difference and deadliness of their talons?

Jeff,
What is your satisfaction level with your 7dii versus the original one? Are they not performing the same?

After over a year with both the 7DII and the 100-400LII, The grass is only a little greener....... I like the reach of the 400mm but the 70-300L is a way better carry lens, it will do landscape and critter's much better in my area, the bush here is kinda close if you know what I mean. My 7D was a beast but I think I learned to tame it. and the images I get from it are still I think very good.

mmmm I'm really not sure where the smart money is. I really only share what I shoot so !!

7D-----------$1079.00....... new at henry's when I bought it
70-300L ----$1200.00....... Used on Kijiji
Total------$2279.00.....

7DII------------$2299........new at Henry's
100-400LII----$2399........new at henry's
Total----------$4698........plus tax 13%

The prices surprise me. Assuming they are Canadian Dollars, the 100-400 is only $200 more CND than the price now in USD. The 7DII at $2299 CND vs $1499 USD (a year ago; we must have purchased them at about the same time) seems more like what I expected. If I can find the lens at $2400 CND, it might be worth crossing the border and a day trip to Toronto.
