Hi Folks.

A few shots I have taken recently, the skylark was real high, the bird fits in a 700x700 pixel square! Really impressive for the 100-400 L II despite being coupled to the reputedly dreadful 7DII. :oops: o_Oo_O :ROFLMAO:

The buzzard was taken with the 7DII with my EF600mm f/4L IS USM hand held, the crow chasing buzzard was the first shot and is not great but shows the story, they kind of caught me off guard as I came out from under the tree canopy and no time to worry about the monopod I have learned to carry with this monster lens!

I love my gear including the 7DII despite all the recent furore about how bad Canon cameras are when compared to the competition!

Cheers, Graham.

Graham, the 100-400mm II pairs really well with the 7DII. I have been tempted to buy one but feel as soon as I do Canon will announce a new APS-C.

Thanks click.
Damn you are fast responding, and always with kind words, I wish I could manage to respond to all the fantastic posts on here, but I don’t seem to find the words often enough, makes me feel kind of guilty. :confused:

Cheers, Graham.

Nice series, Graham. I especially like the last picture.

Hi Alan.
As I said, I love the 7DII, and I know that the 100-400 works really well with it, I was fresh from one of the gear threads that is slating Canon cameras, the smileys I used to convey sarcasm didn’t come out as I used the iPad menu not the forum drop down, I am going to put them in now! :rolleyes:

Cheers, Graham.

Well both 7DIi and 5DsR work very well with 100-400Ii. Recently I used 7DII with 400DOII a very good combination too. The advantage of either 100-400 or 400DOII is that their reasonable lweight in combination with their very good IS give us the capability to use them in low shutter speeds should we need to keep ISO down in static low light situations.
