Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: 400mm 5.6

Some of the birds were very close, about 10 feet away, others about 30. With the 5Dmk2 full frame I can crop substantially and keep the quality high. I've got about 4000 other pictures last week of the full bodied birds and alligators,  but I seem to enjoy getting close to their heads, especially if it's still sharp. Most of the sites I went to have birds and gators that aren't spooked as much by humans, so it wasn't too hard getting close. I also use Aperture fyi... Al.

Just returned from a week in south Florida and the Everglades. Visited excellent bird sites at Loxahatchee, Tigertail Beach on Marco Island, Shark Valley, Anhinga trail in Everglades Park, and others... Used my 400 with some fill flash, with some great results. Sharper than my 70 to 200 2.8 for most situations. Looking forward to getting down there again!
