The new 800mm f/11 is coming tomorrow and it may be anticlimactic.

The firmware updates for the EOS R5 and the EF 100-400 II seem to have unleashed what may have been the hidden potential of that lens when combined with the EF III Tele-extenders.

We shall see what happens but I am continually surprised by how well the lens works with both of the Tele-extenders.

This image of a young wild Tom Turkey was from tonight. It has been sharpened and denoised but was truly sharp from the start.

Sadly, the weather is not to be good tomorrow night for a follow up shoot with the 800 but I will get out there again. In the meanwhile, my backyard test subjects will be available.
