Sorry to hear about your problem Kev.
In case you reconsider alternative shooting modes, that Olly lens was available for $2500 new over Christmas. ($3000 with 500 cashback)

By alternative modes I mean monopod or even stationary mode. I've decided I want a decent photo of an Azure kingfisher and I'm sure sit and wait is going to be the best method even though I prefer to be moving.

Thanks mate. The upside is, that for the sale of the combo, one lens, one camera, one extender, I've now got 3 bodies and 6 lenses and a bit of cash left over., but even the pro lens will never match the Canon. I know I'll miss it.

You're too right about Kingfishers. I've only ever got them by returning to where I once saw them and waiting. My favourite one lived in a termite mound but last time I went to see it a bloody lorikeet had taken it over!

I have noticed a few photogs using the Sony RX10IV. Less than 200 grams heavier than a 7D2 body. 1 inch sensor. 24-600 lens (35mm equivalent)
Just a couple of example photos here:

OK, last post about SonyRX10IV in the Canon100-400 thread.

Well known and talented bird photographer is one of many who has one of these RX10IVs (still has Canon DSLR and some big heavy glass too)

The 100-400mm II is built like a tank, according to Roger Cicala. And it feels like a tank too after a long shooting session. I love the lens, but it is too heavy. I will try to continue with the lens for now, but will probably have to find something lighter before too long. And it might be the RX10.

By the way, do you how big a 1 inch sensor is?

Trick question? I don't think it's 1 inch...
RX10IV lens is 220mm.

Diagonal 15.86mm

Yeah, it is about 1/2 inch wide. It is a very good sensor for its size, but you need good light because it is quite small.

Yeah, not expecting anything for free, but size/weight/cost all low.

Both great captures but for me they are much too tight in the frame......... subjects like these need "space to breath" especially BiF like the Egret it needs a good bit of space on the right hand side to 'fly into' so to speak.


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p
