Lenses / Re: The 100-400 or the 70-200 f2.8 II+2x Mark III for wildlife

Maybe it has already been mentioned, but why not the 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM?

Excellent IQ & IS comparable to the 70-200, better than the 100-400 - not quite as much range.  But significantly shorter and lighter than both of the other options you listed.  Could be a more practical lens out in the field.

If I had the cash, I'd use the 70-200 f/2.8 sans TC when the wide aperture is needed, and the 70-300 when more range, less weight/size was needed and aperature less important... They complement each other well.

The 100-400 I think you will always be stuck with a heavier+longer lens even if redesigned, and it doesn't differentiate itself as much from the 70-200 as the 70-300 does (aside from the controversial push-pull zoom).
controversial yes, but I'm in the love it camp, push pull is just so intuitive and natural to me.

Oh, and twice the reach...  ;)

I rarely post here, although I do look a lot, some really great Images in the thread by a lot of good photographers.

My general rule is if it doesn't have teeth and attitude i pass it by, but from time to time something grabs my attention.

Haven't a clue what this Bird is called, but the colour attracted me.

1Dx 200-400f/4

Masai Mara Kenya.

Beautiful shot of an interesting bird. I think it might be a Hadada Ibis.

Yes, I believe you're 100% Serendipidy! 

Nice image Edward,  No teeth but it almost looks like blood on his bill, which is quite interesting and apropos for one of your images!  ;)

Agreed, a mother or a grandmother but no other!  Great image Edward!  :o

400mm isn't often enough reach for me, even with the ability to crop my ff images fairly strong.  Often times, the AF just isn't enough if my subject is a little further. 

Why not an extender on the 100-400mm?  The Mk III now AF's at f/8... has anyone used that combo?  Save some money over keeping all my lenses and buying a 500mm or a 600mm... no?  Would IQ be that much more deteriorated? 

Just wondering!  ::)

Here's one from the Uyuni desert in Bolivia. Kinda liked how it turned out in B/W.

Those clouds are beautiful over that mountain.

That is cool!  Almost makes me think they're dancing!  ;D

Tawny Frogmouth on nest. Not a true owl, but a member of the Nightjar family of birds. A difficult one to spot as they blend in with the bark of the tree. Unfortunately, we found the body of a dead chick, on the ground below this nest. Hopefully, they have a second chick under this adult.

Bean, that is a wonderful image!  Only the 2nd time I've seen one of these!  Thanks!

An old tree trunk decaying in a remarkable way. Very rarely seen this happening.

That really is quite interesting, I've not seen that before!  Thanks for sharing! :)

Playing around with some Antelope Canyon shots from a couple of years ago...people typically accentuate the colors, thought I'd try something different.  Hopefully I didn't go overboard  ;D

Awesome. Beautiful B&W. Well done.

+1  Absolute sweetness!  Man, these are excellent!

Malham Cove, North of England, a huge extinct waterfall from before the last ice age. Larger than Victoria Falls in its day.

Duuuuddddeeee!  I love this!!  Man, I've got to get there!  Here's to the Motherland!  Awesome image, I had no idea that this place even existed!  Really cool, thanks for sharing my friend!  ;D

Thanks Ken, it's worth going to see. If ever you visit the North of England be sure to look me up !

Indeed I shall!  You can be sure of that.  I do hope to get there in the next 12-24 months actually!
