Great shots of some gorgeous birds! Whereabouts? I've never gotten either here in FL.

That lens has been on the wish list too long now. I get great results w/the 70-200/f4 IS +1.4X II, but the extra reach without any extender drawbacks would be nice.

Cheers,

Mark

Thanks Mark!!  I'm here in Ontario Canada, the Mergansers are just passing through, the Woodies are around longer...  I highly recommend the lens!  Because of it's nice light size, it actually gets way more use than my 500mm!!
