Are you not tempted to use de 5d mk4 all the time, i know the 80D is a beautiful backup body. I hope they install the flippy screen to the 7D mk3 i loved it on my
70D. Shooting in the snow is a new experience for me it is not snowing much over here.

When the light is good, the 80D is amazing, I have no qualms about taking it out vs. the 5D4, especially when I'm reach limited. BUT... when the light is even slightly bad, the 5D4 is my de-facto choice. If I want to use the 5D4 full time, I'd be tempted to get the 600 f/4! With the 500mm, I always use the 1.4x; 600 would be about perfect, but the bulk is too much :(

Definitely looking forward to the 7D3... if it has similar sensor performance as this 80D, I'm all in.

Viewing your Flickr shots, I'm assuming you live in Florida? Despite the cold, shooting in the snow is fun. So quiet, beautiful, it lends a forlorn feeling to shots. Plus, birds are easier to spot in winter. Come on north, give it a go :)

Why didn't I use it to snap this hawk? I was looking out my back window w/ binoculars, when I saw an amazing Red Shouldered Hawk perched outside. I quickly suited up in winter garb, ran down and grabbed the 500mm and whatever body was attached, and ventured out to get the hawk/snowfall shot. Since I live in a suburb with a lot of people out and about, chances are the hawk would have been scared off before I could get there, so I didn't bother checking which body I had attached...

Now I'm following both of you. I don't do much wildlife at all, but you two are good!!!

Thank you, Joe :-) I started following you recently, after I saw the great photo you took of the lamp in the rain (https://flic.kr/p/ZTzT​hU (external link)).

Thanks for the heads up. No i live in the Netherlands and we have only brief winter periods with snow.
What i especially like on the 7d mk 2 are the 3 custom settings to switch fast on the situation at hand, the 70D had only one.

A question for all of us 80D peeps. What lens do you have if you want a travel light (only one lens) ? I'm looking to go wide and long as possible while staying some what sharp and descent Bokeh.


Cheers,
Joe

Better shots of my hawk. I switched between the 5D4 and the 80D, and I just didn't have the reach with the 5D4. These are cropped as well, but not too severely.

evelakes, Netherlands... you guys seem to have a lot of awesome birds over there. Looking at the bird portrait thread, some of the best shots come from photogs from Ned :)

I would go for the canon 100-400 mk II or the new Sigma 100-400 if the budget permits it. For wide i would use it in portrait mode and take panorama shots and stitch. if you want to get further in mm. you could use a 1.4 extender.

As a general purpose, one lens option for the 80D I think it's hard to go past the EF-S 18-135nUSM. It was released about the same time as the 80D and is often sold as a bundle with it. It's not brilliant at anything but does a lot of things well, and has very fast AF.

That one does look good for what I need, I was hoping for a little more reach if possible. There is three 18-135 , which one is the better one?

Thanks for the reply

Yes , as i-G12 says, the nUSM is sharper, and has faster AF and better build (and a bit more weight). If you're into video you can also add a power zoom attachment to do smooth zooms.

You'd be hard-pressed to get as good image quality if you get something with more reach while keeping the wide end (such as the 18-200 IS that people say has poor image quality - haven't tried it myself). For more reach on a budget, I use the 55-250 STM - great value, light, good image quality (but nowhere near the standard of the 100-400L II).

Tamron makes an 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD Lens for Canon EF and sigma a 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM Contemporary Lens for Canon EF. I wonder how these are?

I know they wont be like the canon 16-35 or 100-400 , but not many are ! :)

I ordered a Tamron 18-400 for that very purpose. Ran into a long time pro photog in the woods that waxed poetic about his. I am cautiously optimistic.
