Thanks for sharing your experiences, i'm more and more convinced about the 5D mark III as my next dslr body  ;D

What makes me thinking about a FF is the fact that in forests like the ones of Costa rica, you're not necesseraly need a crop factor but you absolutely need light and speed. So actually, until a very good 7D mark II (with a great AF, high iso and weather sealed) is arriving, i think the 5D mark III is my best option...

I know the 300 2.8 L IS would be the best option but it's not the same price (even a used one) and the same weight...

humm pretty hard to choose ;) I would rather have the 300 because costaricians forests are pretty tough in terms of low light ans the IS and the f/4 aperture would help me instead of the 5.6 without IS.

The combo 1D mark IV and 300 f4 yes, but the 1.3 crop factor surely helps...

Thanks for the sample ! It works very well ;)

Initially i was thinking about the great, sharp and light 300 f4 L IS but i think it'll be too short coupled with a FF for wildlife photography :(

Thanks ! i really hope a new 100-400 4-5.6 IS (as good as his little bro' the 70-300 4-5.6 IS) or 400 5.6 IS or 300 4 IS II will be announced in the upcoming months...

Because i have a little doubt about how a 5D mark III will work with the actual and old 400 5.6.

I'm looking to upgrade my photo gear for wildlife photography. Would you buy a 5D mark III to complete my 40D or for the almost same price buy a 7D and 5D mark II (and sell my 40D) ?

Low light situations in european and tropical forests are the places where i'll take my pictures...

Remember, the 5D3 is not a 1DX !!

You mean not fully weather sealed ?

Lenses / Canon 5D mark III + 300 2.8 L IS I

Hi guys,

what do you think about putting a 300 2.8 L IS I on a 5D mark III for wildlife photography in the tough conditions of the tropical forests ?

Have you tested this combination ? with which results ? Do you think i still can have good results with the TC 1.4 III with this combination ?

thanks, Vincent

Coupled with a 5D mark III, do you recommand the 17-40 F4 L or another lens like a used 16-35 F2.8  L I (i can't afford the version II) ?

A new weather sealed and razor sharp 300 f/4 L IS II with a price under 2K would become my imediate target !

I really hope it's true 8)
