I know this is complete heresy to bring Canon into the picture in this section of the form.

Please let me know if this is out of bounds. I have a Canon 6D Mark 2 which I have not used very much. It occurred to me to buy a Canon 100-400 mark 2 with a 1.4 extender.

Is this crazy? The Canon 100-400 mark 2 is rated quite highly and I think is light enough to be handheld.

Any thoughts on doing something like this?

Thank you.


I don’t know anything about Canon gear. But conceptually it makes perfect sense to consider it since you have a Canon body and the lens weight, IQ and cost appear to meet your needs.

The Canon 6DII is not the Nikon D500.  However, it is not bad.  Would a 1.4 or 2x teleconverter be best?
