Both taken with 7D + EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II + 2x Extender III

Yellow-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus goiavier)


Oriental Magpie Robin (Copsychus saularis)


My 5D Mark III & 50L was recently stolen. So now I'm a man without a Canon Camera.

great pictures ions! what's the distance between you and your subjects? did you use an extender or have you cropped the images? i'm curious because a couple of weeks ago i used the lens (at 200mm) to capture a deer, but i really couldn't get close enough to get a nice shot :( since then i'm considering to get a 400mm f/5.6

Thank you! :) The animals in that set were taken at a wildlife refuge in Ontario where we were allowed in the pens with them. Although they are kinda domesticated they are still technically wild animals and we had to keep a bit of distance. That said the lighter wolf passed so closely that she was too close for the MFD of the lens at one point.

And for sure, if you want to photograph animals in the wild you're going to need to go much longer unless you go to places where you can get a bit closer because they're used to people. Unfortunately I do not own this lens, the above shots were with a rental, but when I do get it, and I will, I will also pick up the 2.0 extender III for that extra reach.

I rented this lens for my brothers wedding this weekend.  Simply amazing.  Now I just need to save money to buy one :)

And before anyone else complains about the weight, attached are pictures of my 10 year old that I let shoot with it during the reception.  He was lugging it around for about two hours without complaint. (I'll be honest though I was SORE the next day)

I absolutely love this lense!!!  I use it with my classic 5D and out of the 10 lenses I own, the 70-200 f/2.8L is ii and the 85 f/1.2L ii are my definite favourites!

I love this lens. Everything about it. It has revolutionised my 450d - waiting on the new full frames for my next big step.
