Very nice images. But hey! I remember you had mentioned you were thinking of a 500mm f/4L IS II. I guess that you got tired waiting.

I guess that you got tired waiting.Thanks!I had planned on the 500/4 II. But I decided that I'd really like to use the 1D X rather than the 7D, for the lower ISO noise, better AF, and faster frame rate. But, 500mm on FF means giving back 140mm vs. 400mm on APS-C. OTOH, the 600/4 II is essentially the same weight as the original 500/4, so about as handholdable. Giving back 40mm isn't that big a deal, and with the 1.4x III, I'd gain 200mm relative to 400mm on 1.6x, and have great optical results. So, I went for the 600/4 II.
Chenbro, the Egret shot is sublime!
