Re: Lens dilemma for the r5

Staale I can only suggest you consider a 400DOii, because, well that's the big white I plan on using with the R5  (when it ever gets here). Lots of good reports for that combo here and at Fredmiranda.

I understand the allure of the 400/2.8......everything as you know excepting weight. I was on a trip in Panama, me with the DOii and another shooter with the 400/2.8. He was monopod bound everywhere he took it...what a pain in the canoe. But that F2.8 is dreamy eh

I had the 500 IS ii but at my age it was too heavy to enjoy frequently, but I can still wield the 400DOii and one reporter at FM (who has all the EOS glass of significance) states that the R5 + 2.0TCiii +R5 is the best he's seen with that lens for AF speed/tracking.

Just another to throw into the mix.
