Trip to Scotland, advice for long lens
May 28, 2011

Next august I'm visiting Scotland (16 days tour), and was wondering if I needed some longer lenses (should I see some animals/birds).

I'm shooting with a 5DII and at the moment the longest lens I have is the 70-200 f4L (non IS). Normally I don't use it very much, as I'm usually ok with the reach of the 24-105L.

But 200 mm fov is not very "tight" on a ff body, so I was wondering if a 300 mm lens could be useful. Of course I don't want to buy a 70-300 L or a 300f4 (or a 100-400), just too expensive, as I just got the 35L; I was thinking to the tamron 70-300 VC.

Does it make any sense? Is the lens good?

Any ideas? Thanks

PS: advices for places to visit are also very welcome!!

Thank you!

Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed. But I do say... no more than ten to twenty million killed, tops. Uh... depended on the breaks.
