Hank3152's current gear

Canon PowerShot S95
Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon EOS-1D Mark IV
My go anywhere when I can't/don't want to carry the DSLRs
The ultimate for sports/action and wildlife .......well worth the cost for high ISO and IQ......
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
Canon EF 300mm f/4.0L IS USM
I can use it on FF and crop
Great walkaround.......lives on my 5D II
Perfect fit with a 2xIII TC so I can still achieve AF at f/8 with my 1DmkIV
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
Canon Extender EF 1.4x II
Outstanding zoom, lives on my 1DmkIV
Great zoom if you don't need a fast lens
Decent TC which only loses 1 stop
Canon Extender EF 2x III
Coupled to my 70-200mkII when I need 400mm
