The best lens upgrade yet

I never would have thought, that one telephoto zoom upgrade would bring so much joy to my photography.

I used to shoot with a good copy of the SEL70-300 and thought, that my results were good.

Until I got my bargain used copy of the 100-400 and started shooting with it during my recent trip to South Africa.

This lens has exceeded my expectation by a massive margin.

Incredibly sharp, brilliant colour rendition and amazingly fast/accurate focus with my humble A7III.

I managed to nail some sharp bird shots I never managed to get with my 70-300 before.

So much joy to use.

And the size is perfectly manageable. Yes it is rather heavy, but easy to carry by holding it by its tripod foot.

Out of all lenses I bought for the Sony system this is by far the most satisfying.
