so I have to ask, what is the highest ISO setting on the 80D do you find usable (noise wise)???


Look back at my last post with the caterpillar. That's an uncropped photo shot at ISO 6400 in lower light, and I did some light noise reduction. More than usable for the web and beyond. I've shot up to 12800, still somewhat usable but you really need better light at that point.

I understand this and agree with you. However when I'm in the field shooting in these conditions, my mind is screaming "IF I HAD BETTER LIGHT, I WOULDN'T NEED 12,800!"

Liking the AF on the 80D. The 7D really struggled focusing in this situation.

I swear you people with that 100-400 are pissing me off.

In fact, I am trying to finalize a trip to Africa for next May and once that's done you people have shamed me into buying the 100-400. Yes, it is y'all's fault.

Hmph.

Sigma 100-400 is worth a look, It's apparently (tests) even sharper, and smaller & a lot less money.
It doesn't focus anywhere near as close, though :( .
I haven't handled one.

It's a wonderful lens. Only one fault - it is very heavy. Love it, though, and so will you.

Between birding and POTN, I have far less money than I did when I hadn't found either. ;)

Close to getting that myself. A third the cost and at least as sharp

Some of the local camera shops, B&H, Canon Canada eStore, among others love me too. Bloody hell!

I have to say, I find photography hmmmm let me put it this way.... it's therapeutic for me. I get out the most during spring and fall, however. Summers here are a challenge: hot, humid.

The photos don't come out as well because of the heat and humidity ripples plus it isn't all that fun.... sweating up a storm, wiping down the gear after every shot. ;)

I do have one and it is great. I don't expect macro focus with a 100-400. It focuses at a shade over 5 feet and that is plenty close with this lens.

Other things are not equal. like FL at closest focus...

Looks like maximum repro ratio is 0.31 for the Canon, 0.26 for the Sigma.
Less difference than one might think, just looking at close focus distances.

Sigma's half a stop darker, optically slightly better, much lighter (about 40oz/1133g versus 60oz/1700g ) , Canon just edges the AF, and has a tripod collar.
Sigma's so much cheaper though, you could buy a spare body!

Not sure if a third party Tripod collar is available for the Sigma. ?? Anyone??
I bought a £12 one for a Canon 70-300L, which I use a lot, it's fine.
