I've a question for all of you.  I know the focus is not 100% but the background looks weird to me.  Do you think the grass behind the birds looks a bit funny?  If so, why?

FYI, f8, 1/4000, iso 1600 5diii with 300 f/2.8ii+2xiii

I agree, it does, but I've seen this in some of my own Images, I don't think it's anything to be too concerned about, you've likely made the same mistakes as I've made from time to time in this situation.

used a 2x Converter (loss of IQ), bright sunlight & used ISO1600 then had to combine that with a very fast shutter speed to counter act the High ISO & used 1/4000th.

All these small issues combine to give a pixelated area where you would normally have that smooth blurred out Bokeh.

My best shot at an answer, someone like Neuro would perhaps have a much better explanation I would guess, I'm not the most technical of Photographers.

I bought a micro camera to clip onto Fluffy's collar to see what she did all day. The camera was set to take an image every 10 seconds. I managed to capture 9 hours of sleeping cat.

I tried it on her outside. She came back without camera and collar. I never found it.

That's too Funny Man, I'm still laughing, not sure which part was the best, the sleeping Cat (there's a surprise  ;D ) or the missing Camera & Collar, nice neighbourhood.

My own copy of the lens is showing out for delivery today, can't wait! I mean, who needs TWO kidneys?!  :D

Hi Winglet, Yes, it's the small downside to the Internet, fortunately 99% of what we see & read about on CR make the experience enjoyable & worthwhile, life has it's mike's, I agree, I doubt we'll see any Images.

You will I'm sure Love the 200-400f/4, I am certainly enjoying the experience and the Images I'm getting from the Lens. Having the 200f/2, 300f/2.8 II, 600f/4 & had the 400f/2.8 II I am of the opinion that at those particular ranges the 200-400f/4 is not quite as sharp, have felt that since I first purchased the Lens, but you really do need to zoom to perhaps 3:1 before you will see the difference in sharpness, Canon have certainly put all their smarts into designing an exceptionally good Lens.

the only thing lacking is the ability to shoot @ f/2.8, that would be perfect, but not sure I could carry the thing if it was f/2.8 it would be very heavy, so a back up lens that's f/2 or f/2.8 is always in the Bag as well.

Enjoy your Lens when it arrives and look forward to seeing your Images and more importantly hearing about your experiences of the Lens & how the Kidney removal went.

Please stop posting photos Edward i cant afford to buy the 200-400 and a trip to tanzania lol!awesome work yet again :)

If you have a choice go for the trip, always.

And lovely B&W, Kaz as well, your certainly putting the 85 to good use.

Interesting re the afma, I purchased Reiken when it finally went Mac, I've yet to do any afma on a single Lens I own, I can't see any of them have an issue so I'm reluctant to mess with them, makes me wonder if I've just gotten used to any issues they may have. I'm always interested to see here on CR the amount of people that do run Reiken etc and post that their Lenses almost all require adjustments.

Thanks Edward!  I assume that since it's primary use relates to glare that the light loss is not relevant in those bright circumstances.

Jack

In almost any situation where I use a Polariser I generally take a light reading without the filter, add the filter & take another reading, then shoot around +1 to +1.5 stops.

Edward, I'm aware of these filters, in fact I think I had one  eons ago with my F1 but that's about it.  If one is installed in the 300 is there a need to take it out for general shooting.  In browsing this thread I think I saw reference to light loss??  Probably a dumb question but I'm a beginner. ;)

Jack

No Dumb questions in this Game Jack, we are all learning, until the day we can't.

Yes, there is 1 to 2 stops of light loss depending on where you position the circular polariser, there's a clear Blank in the Big Whites that you Pop out & replace it with the 52mm Circular Polariser, operates no different to any Circular Polariser you would add to the end of a Lens that's less than say 200mm in Focal Length i.e. Lee 105 Circular Polariser etc.

Any suggestion on the drop in Circular Polariser?

Hi Dylan, available B&H etc, US$230

Worth the Money, I use a couple of them as I'm often using one in each of the Lenses I'm shooting with.
