Hi guys,

I'm back for a few advices... A friend of mine, who's actually in neotropical forest told to me that the 5d Mark II coupled with the 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS is just awesome for most of the wildlife there, especially mammals ( a bit short for the birds).

I was thinking about buying the 300 f/4 L IS to complete my 70-200 f/4 L IS but this option my be an interesting one since the weight and mobility are huge factors there !

Or should i wait, i'm not in a hurry, and see if the new 100-400 f/4-5.6 L IS is what i need ?

Thanks, Vincent

That would be great ! I only hope it won't cost more than 2000 € :-\

Do you think it could be the new lens that replace the 400 f/5.6 and also the 300 f/4 >:(

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 ;)
