Decision made, and purchase made.

I am getting the Canon 100-400L II. It should be delivered tomorrow as I ordered it from my local camera shop. After considering everything, and reading countless reviews, I just remembered back to August when I had the lens in my hands and taking shots. Then how blown away I was when I did my post processing.

I'm still debating on purchasing the Canon 1.4x III TC at some point, but since I shoot with the 77D, which is APS-C, I don't know if I need it right away. I do plan to upgrade to either the R5 or R6 at some point, but that's probably at least a year or more away.

I do have the Kenko Pro 300 DGX 1.4x TC which has worked well for me in the past, but this TC does not work on the 77D. It worked fine on m previous 60D, and still works on my wife's T3i, so I do plan to test the 100-400 with this TC on her camera. If I REALLY need the extra reach, I will just use her camera for now.

Thanks again everyone for the replies. It did help make my decision a little easier. I'll post pics when I test out the lens.

You made a good decision.   I’m looking forward to seeing your pictures with it.

That's my opinion, and it's worth what you paid for it.
