100-400mm as an Emergency Macro -

While out looking for birds and other wildlife, occasionally you see something small that begs to have it picture taken. With the super closeup focusing ability of this lens, great shots are possible - try that with your 600mm !!  ;)

I took this lens out last weekend with my new 5D Mk III to get a feel for this combination, and here are a few samples. Interestingly I hadn't thought of this as a landscape lens before, but now that I do, it opens a whole new world of possibilities :)

I just bought this lens and made it out for about 30 mins until the heat killed me off (Dubai summer is horrid), here are the first images I took, so the AF is a million miles faster than my old Sigma 150-500, I'm well chuffed with my purchase  :)
70D - 100-400L - 24-105L - 50 f1.8 II - Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6 - Sigma 610 ST.
Next on the hit list, and in no particular order -  1.4xTCIII + 2xTCIII + 100 f2.8 USM macro + 430 EX-II

I went from the Sigma 150-500 to the 100-400L as well, the loss in focal length is well worth the gain in image quality, AF speed, handling and portability. Since I sold the Sigma, my monopod hasn't seen any use because I'm able to hand hold the 100-400L all day. I am hoping for an updated version though as it's getting quite dated by now.

By the way when I was in Dubai, one of the locals said Dubai has two seasons: Summer and 'Hell', so good luck over there  :-\
