500 F4 L IS II
7 months ago

I sold my old Canon 500 (purchased in 1999) a few months ago.  It just seemed too heavy for me to travel with any longer.  I had a chance to visit Bosque Del Apache NWR last week and had only my 100-400.  With two full frame cameras, I really missed the old 500.  When I got home, in a moment of insanity, I ordered the new 500 with a 1.4x III to go with it.  Boy that lens is expensive!  Anyway, can anyone help me rationalize this purchase?  I am primarily a wildlife photographer.  Happy Holidays!
