Thanks. As I mentioned earlier, I haven't had a chance to shoot more than about 50 shots with it because it's been raining here so much. So far, I'm really impressed with the sharpness wide open. I haven't tried to track any moving objects, but hope to get out soon to do some of that. I do not think that I'd want to handhold it for very long because it is pretty heavy. I'm certainly inspired by the shots that you got on safari.

Hi eli72, I shot over 8,500 Images in 4 weeks in Tanzania & South Africa in June with the 200-400f/4, love the Lens, but as you mentioned, you need to be Arnold to hand hold for any length of time, it's heavy. I used a Bean Bag mostly, or my RRS PG-02 on a RRS Monopod Safari rig. I found the only thing I needed to watch was Focus Lock on moving subjects in less than ideal light, unlike the 400f/2.8 this 200-400f/4 obviously achieves focus @ f/4, so you can have more OOF shots in Dim Light than say with the 300f/2.8 or 400f/2.8 but mostly I just found the Lens worked amazingly well. On a couple of Cheetah Kills, +80KPH in Tall Grass, as long as the Cheetah was visible, the Focus in AI Servo Locked on and stayed locked on, but if the Animal completely disappeared momentarily behind Tall Grass or Bushes, the Focus was lost and I needed to re acquire focus.

On a side by side with the 300f/2.8 & 400f/2.8 I would still give the Sharpness factor to the Primes, but you need to Pixel Peep to see it, great Lens that I'm really Happy with, hope you enjoy it as much.

Great action shots ELi72 - That's Ray Emery in net for the Blackhawks correct? He came from my home town, he brought home the cup this week.

Great shot sanj


Raptors have no teeth, so smaller prey are swallowed whole, while larger prey are torn into manageable chunks, using their beak and talons.  It looks like this juvenile took more than he could handle.

Great Shot Raptors, Love to see these sorts of Interaction, bad luck for the Mouse.

Also one of my all time favourite Lenses, the 300f/2.8 II, Arguably Canon's sharpest.

This little Guy played with a Feather from some Doomed Bird for Ages, kept taking it to other members of the Pride, no one seemed quite as interested in the Feather as this Little Guy though, Light was Magical.

And that's it for me, heading North tomorrow, back in 6 weeks, hopefully with some decent Polar Bear Images.

And then there's always the moon. 200-400 f4L/1.4 @ 560mm, ISO 400, 1/800 sec. @ 5.6.

Excellent shot, I tried a few of these last tip to Africa (We don't see the Moon so much in Singapore & Jakarta), to get it right, as you've done, is a lot harder than most People think, well done, amazing detail.


+1000..wonderful image!
