Re: Which telephoto lens for taking birds?

The minimum lens you need is the Canon 400mm f/5.6 for large birds. I have a 7D Mark II and usually use a 1.4x extender on a 400mm lens for anything smaller than an eagle. I haven't tried the Third Party zooms, but would seriously consider one of them if you can't afford a super-telephoto lens.
