Good job! Maybe slightly saturated but good first shoot

No your ok I have a pretty good job doing what I love
I would agree with the above.
Travel is the only thing you can do that makes you richer. The camera you have with you is always the best camera.
In this case I would be against the 1Dx and the 300/400mm because they are both niche products and a pain in the ass to carry around. 5DMKIII and the 100-400 would make a better option but still a pain for traveling.
Really the usability of 300/400mm lenses are best suited for sports and birding/wildlife. If thats your main use then ye.
I think a good compromise is the 70-200mm F2.8 MKII With a 2x extender if you are traveling around. Thats what I use but the MKI non IS lens. IQ is not stellar but more than useable on my 5DMKIII
You would have a lot of money left over and still an incredible kit.
Apart from my Camera equipment my other passion is cars and BMW M cars are my poison otherwise I would have many more exotic lenses
I guess more importantly the camera is always only as good as the person behind it... (and I am not a 1DX )
But I actually found that the 300/2.8 is an incredible lens also for "macro" type photography (wild flowers, and bugs, mostly). Nevertheless, it certainly is not suitable as an always-on...
I must say that since I have used the 300 I am always a bit disappointed when taking a picture with the 70-200 (IS, mark I). I guess I have tasted the honey and can not let go anymore... The funny thing is that when I first rented it my reasoning was simply to see what justifies that kind of price. I believed that it is sufficiently expensive (and expected a difference sufficiently small) to never really make me consider buying it... boy was I wrong!! Most people here probably know this, but I felt like the photos from the zoom lens were taken with an iPhone (well, not quite... but almost).
I can see how BMW M are poison (that tastes good)... In that respect I am happy since cars I would be passionate about (basically Mercedes from the early 70s and before, or electric sports cars...) are so totally out of range for me that I just stick with my 15 year old volvo
Ye sorry your right, I was editing a few images at the same time on Flickr must have added the wrong info to this pic and not realised.
Sorry for the confusion.
Thanks for that tomscott - thought I was going senile
Nice pictures, love the one of the dog up in the hills.
