100-400: My other lens on my other body
In reply to BobT, 7 months ago

I have the 100-400L on my SL-1 (Rebel 100D) which gives an effective 160mm-640mm zoom, on the limits that I can handle without a tripod. There is a slight problem of focusing unless I use the center point. This I do not notice on the 5D III. A monopod increases markedly the percentage of keepers though the total number of shots decreases slightly. Airlines hate them, though.

Whale watching in Sydney, I counted a total of 14 "dustpumps", in Sydney Zoo there were four of us shooting the tigers with a similar setup. If we are wrong, at least we are not alone.

I got two bodies, a 5DIII with the old 24-70 attached and the 100D with the 100-400.
I also carry a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 for the 100D for no other reason that I like it.

Apart from the weight, this is a very decent setup, bypassing my capabilities a a photographer by million miles.
