You realize how nutty that request is?  It would be bigger (and more expensive) than the 200-400/4.

Ummm, Oooook, I was being.....facetious ?? attempting humour ?? it's an Aussie thing.

I understand on CR that sometimes, as in this case, doesn't work, I'll endeavour in future to be more serious, more in line with all the other very serious viewpoints that get Posted on CR from time to time, in among the more serious viewpoints, naturally.

And on a more semi serious note, a 100-400f/4 Lens with the IQ of the 200-400f/4, shouldn't be any larger, or more expensive than the attached, seems like a Bargain at $27k, well, except for the cost of the 2 Sherpas you would need to cart the thing around for you.

$3499....same IQ as 200-400mm

There will be a lot of 200-400f/4 Lenses going cheap if this was the case   ;)

I think the 3.5k price Tag is pretty well ballpark though, the Nikon 80-400f/4.5 is selling for around 2.7k so you can safely bet the Canon will be close to 1k more expensive, be worth it as well if they can maintain a constant f/4.

Would work perfectly on the 1DMK IV.

Edward, did you notice the right side of the frame? Another pair of...sunglasses...were tragically omitted at capture!  ::)

The Photographers Bane, Tunnel Vision, that's hilarious, I didn't notice the "extra Pair of Sunglasses, can't understand it Old Shooter.

From a RAW. Not real crazy with the skin tones from RAW. JPG's were solid.

Nice pair of.....Sunglasses ???

Ummmm, I think the skin tones are just fine   ::)

I wonder if I´ll ever get my arms around this AF system. Every time I think I´ve got it ... I haven´t ...

I know what you mean in spades, get it all set up at Home, latest updates, latest AF Guide, do some Images of the next door neighbours Cat (no way I'de show them on CR, only a few Guys that like Cats here), then get on a Plane, Fly to Africa, local flight to the Delta in Botswana, into the vehicle, out to the best place on the Planet to take Images with your 1Dx of Cats, the big spotted ones, and......

WTF ??????

I have some recent baby photos!  8)

Hi Infared, I like it, as I like a lot of your Images, I've tried to think on why, other than your Images are always technically well done, I think it's the approach, you present your Images a little outside the Box, well, inside the Black Box actually, but they always make me think, which I like.

Really awesome shot eml58!  Something I really want to see in person someday(and not at a zoo).

Thanks ERHP, it's quite something to watch these Guys take down a Thompson's Gazelle at 100kph, this particular Image was the Mother of 3 young Cubs, about 18 months Old, the Cubs are too Young to participate yet in the take down, but they sit up & watch Mum do her thing, learning from Mum all the time.

In this Image Mum feeds first, then sits & keeps watch while the Cubs eat, Hyenas & Lions are the Cheetahs biggest problem, the Cheetah is quite small & light and will give up the Kill easily if threatened by either.

Great Crested Grebe, with her 2 day old chicks. There are very few birds I know of, where the difference in appearance between adult and chick is so big as with these. If H.C. Anderson had seen this bird before he wrote The Ugly Duckling, he would have used the Grebe instead of the Swan ;)

This little girl represents the final year from her kindergarden. They carry these pink caps and ride in the parade with the high school graduates. She´s at the end of the parade and I believe at the end of her energy to blow her whistle ;)

Nice Eldar, Cute Child as well, Pinks her colour that's for sure.

Amazing shot, eml58. I am not sure if it is just me, but I would much prefer it with the top chopped off, so the leopard is in the top right of the pic.

Hi Expat, your right, I was a bit stuck on what to do with this Image, I tried framing the green with the Tree Trunks, would have liked to get closer to the Lady, but she was one of the young shy ones, still getting used to the vehicles & immediately after this Image she came real fast down from the tree, because it was early morning I'de set my Shutter Speed at 1/80th, Dumb thing to do with a Leopard in a Tree (actually slightly dumb at anytime with any Animal), I fluffed everyone of those shots unfortunately.

This was Pre my 200-400, getting the 400 off & fitting the 1.4x was & still is a PIA, the 200-400 makes it that much easier to frame & get that little bit more reach, still, I do miss that 400 @ f/2.8 at times.

Menace, Dylan, Click, Northstar, appreciate your comments, Thanks Guys.

Eldar, I've tried the Landscape thing, enjoyable at times definitely, but I see so many Posters here on CR that do it so much better, I even try the Portrait thing as well, again, same thing applies, enjoyable, but, People can be at times, difficult ?

But Big Cats in Africa ?, 0600 with an early morning mist and the Sun just peeping through the Green of the Trees ?? that's just about as good as it gets in this Life, with or without a Camera in your hands.

Beautiful eyes. It seems that the leopard is trying to seduce him. Is it a female? :-*

Hi ajfotofilmagem, Yes it's a Female, and there's not much not to love about a Leopard, but the eyes on these Cats are just extraordinarily Beautiful, this one had a slight green tinge to the eyes.

I don't think she was feeling too amorous, a few seconds after I captured this Image she spent about 20 minutes licking her backside, I have a few of those Images as well (all Photographers seem to be Voyuers), but thought the CR Guy might implement some 'R' classification on the Images.
