Obvious answer!

Buy a 10-22 and walk to the subject, thereby saving almost 10K!

Of course if the object is large and furry and has sharp teeth, perhaps you should reconsider this option.

Continual good advice from someone waiting delivery of a nice white 500 F4.

Kind regards

What are your thoughts on getting to the 500mm range ? Canon IS 100-400, Sigma OS 150-500mm, Canon IS 300mm with 1.4 extender (close enough), Canon non-IS 400 with 1.4 extender or other alternatives ? What is your experience so far if you own any (or all) of those lenses ? I saw a lot of comments, but it seems like there is no clear winner. Of course, north of 10K is a no brainer with all available options. Maybe you can share your experiences with cropping as well to reach the same equivalent magnification.

Cheers.
