Last weekend I met 2 bird photographers with 1dx and 1d IV and both have 500mm really nice and helpful fellows anyway I asked them if they have the 300mm would they be willing to trade it for 100-400mm without hesitation they both said yes at the same time lol. And it turned out that both of them owned 100-400mm and I asked them about the dust issue they said they don't have issue with it, the other guy pulled out his 100-400mm and it is a little beat up but the glass is clean.

So now I will sell my 70-200 in CL to help funds the 100-400mm and still keep the 300mm is that a good idea? The 70-200 I barely use it since I got my 300mm it just sits in my bag.

Thanks

Don't be surprised if your 100-400 ends up dusty. But it doesn't affect your images too much so I wouldn't worry about it.

100-400 is truly a wonderful lens, as long as you feed it enough light.

Umm thanks Julian, now I am worried I maybe just wasting money if I buy this, it is overcast here in Seattle 9 months each year :).

I see a few people have this in Juanita bay park. I am seriously considering it. How is it with kenko 1.4x ?
I have the canon tc but would like to pair this with kenko Dgx 1.4 thanks

The 100-400 should still work wide open w/ the non-reporting TC with the center point focus. I've never tried it since I only have the Canon 2xIII.

Overcast isn't bad. But if it's dark AND overcast, fergitaboutit. :lol: j/k. it'll still work except the ISO starts crawling and IQ begins to degrade.

Wow Jeremy thanks for sharing this. Great shot. Kenko is good combo I will check the exit but the focal length is reporting right? I just saw the exif data wow 560mm I am so envy.

No it doesn't. The 7D won't AF above f/5.6. I don't know of any non-reporting 2x, but I would assume perhaps if there was one, then the 7D would still try to AF (albeit slowly and possibly poorly).

^Great shot sawsedge! The lighting, subject isolation, framing, captured action is all very nice.

No it won't. It would become an 800mm f/11 MF with really bad quality.
I've tried it with my 400L! Although this was taken from a massive tower and through tinted glass so right there I have 2 obstacles. Yet even with good conditions it's still not good IQ.
