Just a try out of a new lens, for me, at the pond - not ducks!

Needed something to repclace my Tokina 80-400 which died on sunday (it may take quite a while to get fixed.)
Purchased a Canon 100-400 and took a trip to the local pond early this morning to try it out.
The Pelicans were more cooperative than the ducks.
This sequence @ 350mm was shot @ F5.6 and with a Canon 40D on a monopod.

First impressions were very favourable.

Nice shots and I love mine too.
Be aware if you use a UV filter it has to be one of the very good ones otherwise IQ will be affected.

Lens focuses the light,
