Unfortunately that's too expensive for most of us ! that's why a new version of the 100-400 L IS is absolutely needed ;)

In my opinion, it won't cost 1500/1700 $ or € but more around 2000 >:(

But if it's true, that's a great news !

Thanks a lot ! That's a great storage solution. I'm gonna think about it for my days in Costa Rica 8)

Beside the new 300 F/2.8 or the 400 F/2.8 i don't see any other lens which can afford a TC 2.8 !

I've seen terrific results with a 300 F/2.8 L non IS and a TC 2... And some photographers use the TC 1.4 and 2 combined with the 300 F/2.8 (2 x1.4 = 2.8 ;)) with good results.

I store my gear in Pelican Storm hard cases with a desiccant pack, which protects them from leaks, toddlers, dust, etc.  I do keep the lens mounted, and I have a small case (Storm im2075) that just fits the gripped 5DII with 24-105mm mounted, and a 430EX II along side - that's ready to go for shots around the house.  My next most-used lenses are kept in a medium-sized case (Storm im2300) - 70-200 II, 100mm L Macro and the 'holy trinity' of primes (35L, 85L II, 135L).    All the rest (7D, remaining lenses, accessories) goes in a big Pelican 1600.

Hope that helps...

Can you post some photos please ;)

Make sure you have secured the services of the very good guide to have the opportunity of seeing and photographing the animals you want

That won't be a problem take a look at my website (not finished yet, almost all the photos have been taken with Lumix bridges)  8)

A Canon 180 macro with 1.4 might be a safer option

A safer option than the 300 f/4 and a 1.4 converter ? That's for the 300 f/4 the converter in my idea, not for macro/close up photography...

I just buy the Canon 100mm macro F/2.8 L IS today ;D

Thanks for your advices ;)

Is there a difference in terms of results between the converter 1.4 I and the the 1.4 II with the 300 f/4 L IS ? Which one is most adapted to that lens ?

So you want to have a lens which is 100 more in reach than the 200-400, and has the same max aperture of F4

I never said that... The actual 100-400 has a f/4.5 max aperture, the next one apparently will have a f/4 max aperture. i didn't talk about constant f/4 aperture ;)

I'd avoid using the 100 for snakes... its not quite as tight a crop as you'd think...  :P

Yeah i think you're right, especially for the most dangerous like the Fer de Lance ! I know them and need for the adults, big guys like them or the Bushmaster a security distance of at least one meter and a half or two, it's too risky ! For them i think i will use my 70-200 or the 300 f/4 ! For the babies or small species like the Eye lash Viper i think it'll be ok, depending of their activity of course ;)

Thanks for your advices 8)
