Wow... That second one is fantastic, Mitesh...

That's a superb lens you have there.

Well Pete, I do have to give it back.

Matt, it was a 1.4 and 2xTC. That was 728mm. :LOL: IQ held up well since cropping it limited for me

To be honest, I'm not. It's great, focus a bit slow vs the 300L but it's far too heavy for me to use it often. It's a choice between the 200 f2L IS or the 70-200 2.8L IS now.

I love that crane shot. With the 100-400, that straw behind would make for horrible bokeh. Superb shots, them all.

Hi all!

Took some 419 shots today :p Just did a quick zip through them and edited these so far :)

I virtually had Mitesh's 300L F4 glued to my camera the whole day - it's a really cracking lens! I also used Ian's Canon 1.4x with it quite a lot too ...
