Thanks for posting everyone!

Mine arrived the other day... Will contribute here over the next week!

Test shots inside my dark cave have proven the IS to be way way way beyond expectations!

Keeper rate is a non scientific 50-70% better with the 100-400ii on my 70d vs Tamron 150-600 on 5dmkiii.

This should hopefully prove to be a successful BIF combo!!! Now what to sell? 70-300L or Tamron?

For anyone wondering, the LP-1 Plate for the Tamron 150-600 from Kirk photo will go onto the 100-400 II just fine!!!

Came back to look again Archibald, now chickadees are one we've got in spades. I'm motivated thanks to your capture. What we dont have is blue sky and sun---10 days now of gloom gloom gloom.

Thanks, guys. I guess this means my new 7DII focuses OK.

Lovely Archibald, such a pretty bird :) :)

I'm not big on birds, but I assume the Chickadee is closely related to the Tit family? It reminds me a bit of a Willow Tit.

Hope you don't mind me sticking this beautiful little verse in here, well it's nearly Christmas, I will remove it if it's too off topic

On a tree by a river a little tomtit
Sang " Willow, titwillow, titwillow!"
And I said to him, " Dicky-bird, why do you sit
Singing ' Willow, titwillow, titwillow?'
Is it weakness of intellect, birdie? " I cried,
Or a rather tough worm in your little inside? "
With a shake of his poor little head he replied:
"Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow!''

He slapped at his chest, as he sat on the bough
Singing " Willow, titwillow!"
And a cold perspiration bespangled his brow,
"Oh. willow, titwillow. titwillow!"
He sobbed and he sighed, and a gurgle he gave,
Then he threw himself into the billowy wave,
And an echo arose from the suicide's grave­"Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow!"

Now I feel just as sure as I'm sure that my name
Isn't willow, titwillow, titwillow,
That 'twas blighted affection that made hint-exclaim,
"Oh, willow, titwillow. titwillow!"
And if you remain callous and obdurate. I
Shall perish as he did, and you will know why,
Though I probably shall not exclaim as I die,
"Oh, willow, titwillow, titwillow!"


Call me Amanda please :)

The Chickadee is a member of the tit family, albiet a cousin from across the pond :-)

Here's a Willow tit for comparison (from my back garden) not taken with the 100-400mm though as I don't own that lens. Sorry for the off topic post, as you were! :-)

It would appear that 135mm through 300mm is f/5.0 opened up.
