Here are several photos taken with the 5 DS R and a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM: http://photojoern.de/sports/polo/
I found it extremely versatile for sports photography and the aperture adds a slight piece of tolerance in the focus point. For the Snow Polo it was just the right decision. What do you think?
Photography is painting with light. A great photo creates a strong feeling, i.e. "I would love to have been there, in that very magic moment."

I really am loving this lens.  Even hand-held in less than great light, it can perform. Here's one wide open at dusk at the Sera Monastery in Lhasa, Tibet (5diii, ISO 200, 1/60, f/5.6).  I did crop a bit but even the corners of the original are good.

Greetings, Mt. Spokane (does not rhyme with cocaine):

Always enjoyed your posts: thought they were balanced, knowledgeable and pleasantly lacking in vitriol. Had another reason to relate: long ago, taught school for seven years in Kettle Falls. (Guessing you know where that is.) Hated the job; God's country.

For complicated family reasons, have been stuck in the upper Midwest for 13 years. Which means I now have two reasons to dislike (envy) you: (1) for getting to put a new 100-400 Mk II through its paces; and (2) for being able to do it using the Inland Empire for a test pattern. Those shots of America's last truly middle class hobby farms nestled up against the western foothills of the Rockies were a lance to the heart...

I took this lens, mounted on a 5DSR, on a flyfishing trip to Iceland last week. Even though the reach is not what I normally use, the combination with the enormous resolution of the 5DSR gives the combo a fantastic flexibility.

This dunlin, which is a rather small bird, came quite close. You do not get 400 f2.8L IS II type bokeh, but I can live with this.

5DSR, 1/1000s, f/5.6, ISO320, @400mm

A fly fishing buddy decided it was time to call it a day. The remaining days of our trip was rainy, cold, with a strong wind from the north and lots of beer and aquavit :)

The more I've used this lens the more I like it.  Here's a couple of more from Lhasa, Tibet.
