    birds in flight - IS "a must" ?

    Hi, A 7D MK II with 100-400 MK II and a 1.4 TC is, in my opinion, fine for BIF. More reach and less weight as a big white on a 1DX or 5D. What shutter speed and AF setup do you use? And, not unimportant, what birds are you photographing? Best regards helmut

    all around Macro lens

    Hi Ryan Well, one big question, handheld or tripod? If tripod, the 180mm is, in my opinion, a bit sharper than the 100mm. If handheld and EF, the 100mm is the better choice. As an alternative, the Sigma 2.8 150mm with IS is a very good lens, with a 2X TC you have enough reach to shot flying...
