how on earth are you getting this lens to be that sharp??? I've been using it almost daily for a year and rarely does it produce anything like this

Experiment this morning with 100-400 + 1.4 TC using autofocus. Cropped only a bit on the top, and then sides to make it a square image, which means without the TC it would have been cropped a whole lot more:

After a while it took off, I decided to see how well the 100-400 + TC did in tracking using AF on a BiF. This is very heavily cropped (about 30% of the whole frame area, or about half cut in each dimension):

The above is not the best shot, but does show some level of ability to AF a moving object at f/8 on a non-1D body!

I will admit it didn't AF perfectly in all shots, with fewer keepers than I experience without a TC. But the 100-400 isn't perfect even without a TC, because sometimes the camera focuses on the branch behind, or the bird moves, or it focuses on the wingtip and not the head/eye, or...

So many amazing shots with the 100-400. I still have not and can not decide between the 100-400 and 300 f4. Going to use it for all kinds of things but what got me looking into more tele was surf photography. I now use a 70-200 f4 on my 5d mkii and that is abit to alot short.

Thanks for the kind words folks. The task of taking the tiger photos was made all that much easier due to the location of where I took them.

My family and I were touring Thailand a while ago and we spent a few days at the Thai Tiger Temple in Kanchanburi province, Northern Thailand. It is a proper Buddhist monastery were they rehabilitate orphaned tigers. It was such a fantastic experience to be walking, playing and interacting with 8-10 full size tigers.

Leftcoast Mike, all my tiger shots (and other shots posted here) were taken hand-held with no tripod or monopod. It just wasn't practicable to be setting one up when I was moving position every few seconds.

I have really bad camera holding technique, especially with a heavy lens like the 100-400, so I invested in a cheap pistol grip attachment to fit to the tripod collar. They are only a few dollars from places like eBay. It takes a bit of getting used to at first, but I find it helps steady my shots when I am moving around and changing position so much. I have appended a quick picture to show the set up.

Ok, I know that two of these pics don't really qualify for this thread as they were not taken with the 100-400. In fact they were taken with the Canon 17-55, but I thought they would be a good example of how close we actually were with the tigers at the temple.

In the first pic I broke the golden rule they told us not to do by crouching down small in front of the tiger, (it makes you small like their natural prey) but I just felt so comfortable around the tigers that i didn't really give it a 2nd thought. And besides, it makes for an interesting pic. I don't think there would be too many people that can claim they had a camera so close to a tiger's face that he licked the lens. That is my daughter in the 2nd pic giving her tiger a back scratch.

The third pic was taken with the dust pump, and yes, that is a frisbee on the tiger's head....It was their play time after all.

I just found this pic amongst all my other tiger photos from Thailand and thought I have to share this one too.

This guy was on a rock ledge about 15 - 18 feet above the water when he makes a big jump and goes flying through the air to crash into the water below with the other tigers already there. It was just a big playtime for them all.
