Thanks, guys.  The terns look great early in the season with their dark black markings on the head but it makes the eyes hard to see.  Later in the year there is more white mixed in with the black so the bird doesn’t look as striking but the eyes stand out.

Shot with the 24-70 mk2, it's obviously through glass, so some reflections, but it's still pretty sharp through thick glass. And I worry about filters, lol.

Taking a overnight break in JoBurg on the way to Northern South Africa from Tanzania & The Serengeti.

Posted some comments and Images on the 200-400 Thread re the 200-400 and initial thoughts of the Lens, in a nutshell, superb, fantastic Lens, sharp, fast focussing, supreme wildlife Lens.

Some Images shot with the 1Dx & 200-400, not my best as I'm on the Fly, so anything that looks off will be me, not the Lens or Camera Combo.

Amazing shots eml58!!  I have pre-ordered the 200-400...still waiting for its arrival. I have been having second thoughts on this lens, so any info would be greatly appreciated. Also, which other thread did you posts images from the 200-400mm?

Hi Raptors, I posted the same Images on a thread here re the 400f/2.8 versus the 200-400, but once I'm Home in around 2 weeks I'll Post more on the 1Dx Site.

I also posted on the other thread my initial views of the 200-400 compared to the other 2 Lenses I am carrying, the 300f/2.8 v2 & 400f/2.8 v2.

For Wildlife out to 600 you wont find anything better, the ability to start tracking an Animal at 560 f/5.6 then track towards you, dropping the 1.4x extender out getting you back to 400f/4 then zooming all the way back to 200f/4 with one touch while never loosing Focus, is just amazing. After a week of this I have left the 300 & 400 back at Camp and just use the 200-400 & the 70-200f/2.8 L II both Attached to 1Dx Bodies.

I tried setting my other 1.4x converter in place as well as engaging the built in 1.4x converter, although it works just fine, auto focus is maintained, Images do show fall off, so for me this wont be something I'll consider, using the 2x converter simply degrades the Image too much for me, works Yes, but you loose autofocus, and poor Image Quality is the result.

But the Lens is great, sharp, smooth Zoom, the flip in Converter is a dream, and Focus Tracking is spot on, on Cheetah on a KIll at around 80Kph the only time I lost Focus was if the whole Cheetah went behind a Bush, through Tall Grass worked a treat.

My son has decided he does'nt want have his face on cam AT ALL. But I managed to get a couple today. Here's one shot with the 24-70. Wanted a really punchy light. One 580 in a 60x60 cm softer.
