At 300 the widest aperture is 5.0. It changes from 5.0 to 5.6 at 300mm, so just a little over 300mm you are at 5.6.

Not bad from the 7D MkII at ISO 2500. I was okay with ISO 1600 images, but didn't like 3200. I guess I'll try 2500 as a top end.

Hi,

These are significant crops about 1/3 of the original.

This is a Snowy I've seen a number of times this year. Meet "Maggie Bird of the Beach". I first saw her about 1/4 mile away on the beach looking toward me. So I decided to entertain her by dancing and singing my way in a circuitous way down the beach until I got close to her. Most woman would head the other way but not Maggie. At this point I was telling her how beautiful I think she is.

On my way back home I noticed another snowy on a beach in New Hampshire. I just joined other people photographing this snowy so I didn't act as nutty.

Love the Snowy!
FYI, the first one looks little blue to me. The 2nd looks spot on. Great shots!

Thanks John_T for posting your shots. Nice to see what the lens will do under conditions I have to shoot, lens wide open at a higher ISO to get a aceptable shutter speed. After looking at your photo's makes me think this lens may be in my future. Nice shots by the way.

IMHO, the image quality is rivaling or better than even the 400mm prime!

Seems to be!

Hmmm, I'm seriously thinking about selling my 400 f/5.6 and maybe also 70-200 f/4 IS, and replacing both with this lens. From the available reviews and samples, it looks like it's a match for both.


Some Canon stuff and a little bit of Yongnuo.

I agree. I'm definitely selling my 400 f/5.6 but am unsure about the 70-200 as I have the f/2.8 II and it was without doubt my favourite lens until last Thursday! Got to think a bit longer about that one.

I agree as well, but I'd take a huge hit on my 70-200 f4 as I paid almost retail for it and I see many nice copies going for sub $800. It's too nice of a lens to lose $300-400 on and then have to shell out another $1200 to get the 100-400. I think I'll save my pennies, buy it and then decide if the 70-200 has to go.

Thank you Jake!

I think that I've improved her!

At this time, I'm getting ready for a local eagle count that will be in early January. I located this one a couple days ago.

This was at a fish hatchery! When I arrived the eagle was in a tree at the far end of the hatchery. So I faked like
I was a hatchery worker going from pond to pond spending time checking out the fish. At one point it jumped out of
the tree and flew down to a perch that was closer. Perhaps it thought I was going to find a dead fish and leave it by the
side of the pond.

Having to debate this one too. The range gets covered and the little difference from f4 to f4.5 isn't a big deal with portraits, but the portion from 2.8 to 4 is.

That's what I'm doing! Surely will miss the 30mm extra reach, having nothing between 40mm and 100mm, but I'll manage!
