You have a good copy of the 100-400mm. I never got a sharp shot from mine, although I tried a used one from a shop that was sharp. Canon got the quality control working with the Mk II.

You know Alan - it was a real case of hit or miss with the good 'ole push-pull wasn't it.

It did a really good job on my 40D but showed a lot more of its warts when I got the 7D2. Luckily it wasn't long after that the II came out and we were all saved.

I still have the V1 sitting right here beside me on a 70D. It has a lot of sentimental value and is not really worth anything to anyone else. A museum maybe. Ha.

It's finally happened. Us over-70s are now grounded by the government. Our trip to Peru was cancelled by the organisers this afternoon. I have taken a refund rather than a postponement for obvious reasons. The local birds are now going to be the targets - we will be allowed out for walks. Here is a black-headed gull this morning.

Alan my wife was born in Peru and we've been over there some years back. What an experience everywhere but especially Machu Pichu but when you go be sure to watch your valuables. I'd love to go back but not sure it'll happen. I had the F1 camera back then and a video camera - no wildlife was shot at all.
