I used the 100-400II and the 17-55 f2.8 as my short lens on a crop body. Only once, shooting lions was I wishing for more reach.

Comfortable distance. Sometimes they’re too close.

That is close! The lions I saw were at the far side of the water hole, about 100 yard away!

Did you notice it was taken with an iPhone?

Here's a camera shot.  We nicknamed him 'Scar'.
