Re: Birds in Portland OR area

I bought my 400L 18 months ago for my T2i, specifically for birding.

Our cameras are similar enough but that lens is a superb 'upgrade'. It is just plain about the best bargain in all of bird photography in any system; there's nothing like it.
My Gallery has some examples!

I'm a photographer first, and am very new in birding. I had to learn (and am learning) to see birds.

I shoot hand-held Av f5.6, with the ISO either set at 400 or on auto-ISO capped at 1600.

Oh, I also shoot RAW and in LR3 almost always de-noise and sharpen straight off, then crop as needed.

enjoy that great lens
