Fastest most acurate Autofocus canon camera for bird photography
May 8, 2011

Hi everyone,

I have started photographing birds and have a 5D MKII and 100-400L IS USM. This combo while is good on paper is causing a few problems. This lens takes a lot of getting used to. I am not getting the keeper rate that I should be and while I am more than proficient with other styles of photography, this lens and camera combo is causing a few headaches. I am also using a wimberly gimbal head on my tripod and a cable release when circumstances let me. I am still not getting sharp in focus images.

I would like the opinion of others who sucessfully photograph birds in flight as well as sitting in tree on post or ground etc.
Thankyou in advance
Cindy
