One of the first few shots with my new to me canon 100-400mm L lens. Shot on a 5d Mark III cropped down to about 44% of the original, I was concerned about 400mm on a full frame but after cropping the original and getting these results I have no further reservations.  Exported from aperture to 50% hopefully didn't degrade quality to much.

That first seagull shot is really sharp, thanks for the share.  Which lens and camera did you use?

I have heard great things about the 70-200 f/4 L both IS and non IS, this shot backs up some the claims to great sharpness from the lens. 

A lot of great shots from al posters, something about those seagulls jumped out at me, both great composition, the close up almost looks fake, a stuffed seagull.  Really sharp throughout, especially the eyes in both shots.

Thanks again.

I don't think I will ever sell or let my 70-200 F4/L (non IS) go. It was a shot taken by one of these and a 40D that made me choose Canon as my first digital SLR and lens. It's easily my favorite lens in my kit and my only L series lens so far. I'm really excited at the potential of this lens and a 5DMkiii as I'm very close to pulling the trigger on one of those!

thanks again for your kind comments, much appreciated.

Nice shots Chris.

On the Male Takahe shot... what have you done to the background... it is the weirdest blur... almost a criss cross pattern blur..   :o
