I got impatient and tried capturing the chickens in my neighbor's yard:

Cropped in to 100%, no noise-reduction or sharpness-increase done.
Probably a bit slow on exposure, but it was a grim day.

Anyone else still using this lens?
Still chickens for me, it'll probably be March before I find some motorsport to shoot.

I stopped using mine when I picked up the 100-400. At 300 they are comparable to me, so now it sits.

I prefer Pachelbels lesser known work, Canon in L and the 99 cent menu club.

I have got the same combo. Together with a 7D and 5dIII it gives me all the variations in reach I need.
Congrats.

Is it typical for this lens to fit more snuggly on the mount than other models, or is it just the copy I had? Would be great to have this question answered as I've had a buyer concerned about the copy I'm selling.

My copy does not have a snug fit on either the 80D or EOS RP ... if anything mine's a touch on the loose side.

There is only one species of bison in North America, but it has two subspecies: the Plains Bison and the Wood Bison. Both are found in Elk Island National Park.

They were very close, at times, and there were no fences. We had to stick pretty close to the car. The bulls can be quite aggressive. They're a lot like great big cattle.
