Yeah I used the 80d on center point only focus; If you don't have topaz, try the 30 day trial for the denoise. You may be surprised!!!

Interesting, Mark. Using the 80D today, I really did notice how much slower it is buffering and, of course, it doesn't have the definition of the 5D IV, but I will keep the 100-400 on the 80D and give it a run. Better than it sitting unused in its case. I'm into macro with the 5D IV at the moment. Fun but not easy!

It's highly situation based. We're talking F8 vs F5.6, center point in both cases, all else equal. The situation - Bird perched near horizon (blue sky backround). Bird takes off, in my case, it was a red tale hawk. Hawk diving down, drops below horizon, coming right towards me = MAGIC!!! Click click...... wt... Once it drops below the horizon, camera decides: "...no..we want those trees!! not the bird..trees are better!!" <---- I had this happen multiple times when using the 1.4xIII in with the 5div + 100-400 II.

So, I held onto it for a while and just for fun/excitement, tried just the 80d + 100-400 II, same situation = higher keeper rate. Is it perfect? no. Is it's a 1dx? no. Was it snappier and more fun to use = yes.

Still love the 5dIV, but I really think it's better to ditch the 1.4xIII unless you have stationary or slower moving subjects or just better light.

Yes, I must admit I've given up using the 1.4 extender on 100-400 and the 5DIV. I've found it slows things down too much - and it makes the combination even heavier. Focusing with it can be hit and miss, too, as you say. I find it also needs good light. I love the 5DIV, but do sometimes miss that extra reach. Ah, well, can't have everything. I'm now trying leaving the 100-400 on the 80D and the macro 100 on the 5D. I'll see how I go. I also like the 24-70 f4 on the 5D. Somehow I think the 24-70 and the 80D never quite liked each other! :-) Interesting little discussion we're having here, by the way. Thanks.

Yup!

There's pro's/con's on both sides, really when it comes down to it, I find that crop body wide angle lenses are lacking if you want a proper Fast (>F3.5) wide angle zoom FROM Canon. I went with a Tokina F2 14-20mm (just arrived so jury is out, but so far seems clean).

Anyways, the fun part is just making most of what you have rather than getting caught up in the technical mumbo jumbo. At a certain point it's drop the keyboard, grab the camera(s) and out the door. See what you can get and maximize your opportunities to the best of your abilities with what you have. I've gone through periods where I had NO camera, or a cheaper Canon Rebel and just a macro lens to having a New 5d series and L lenses and just about everything in between. It's fun to see how far one can push a system and interesting that a lot of the times we're talking about that last 5-10% of image quality and in the grand scheme, does that REALLY make a difference if we're just posting online?

I believe now it's just a time thing: most either have TIME and little $, or $ and not so much time. It's nearly impossible to find a balance between those two extremes to just go out and take advantage of good light when we can.

Wildlife really comes down to time, patience and $$$ at a certain point, but you'd be very surprised what the 80d can do on that bare lens if you work your way towards getting closer to subjects/learning behaviors, etc.

All taken in my back garden. Nothing exotic, I'm afraid!

I'm told they are in fact five-sport Burnet moths. I should have known that! :-):-)

Good shot! I have just started trying to capture these quick little buggers myself. For me, I have some difficulty holding my 70-200 lens since I am recovering from shoulder surgery. I'm going to keep at it since we are inundated with Hummers at this time of year. Not sure what these breeds are (Northern California).

(Oops, I see that I used my 17-55 lens on these, I mixed this up with a shoot on an orange dragonfly in our garden where I did use the 70-200.)
