Not very. He was on the railing on the boardwalk right in front of me, the birds at this place are not shy of people. They land on the railings and sometimes stay put when you approach them. Maybe 10-15 feet max. Sometimes with some lenses I have to back up when they do this!! The 100-400 is much better for close encounters than the Tamron or the 400 5.6 due to the better MFD.

Right now I'm toting around a Sigma 150-500. It's huge.

They are all huge. So is the Tamron. The 100-400 is still heavy but smaller than those, the 400 5.6 is smaller and lighter still, but the zoom is more versatile especially the places I frequent where sometimes the wildlife are close in and sometimes I need to zoom out and get a closer distance. I am finding it the best lens for me the more I use it. Also I seem for some reason to be able to pick up the subjects much faster and easier when spotting them and then picking up the camera and trying to find them in the viewfinder. For some reason I find it much easier to do this with the 100-400 than with any of the other lenses I've owned and used. PS That is a 70-300L in my avatar photo, another lens I am really getting fond of.

Just relaxing on lunch break when this little fella popped his head out from the bush. I enjoyed his colours.
