5D mkiii and 100-400L
4

Just a couple from yesterday in my garden. I find focus on the 5D mkiii much more reliable than on my previous 7D.

These look great!  This is exactly the kind of image I'm looking for; I'm considering buying the 100-400 and wanted to see images taken with that lens on a 5D Mark III.  Looks good to me, even at 400mm.

I agree both nice but the 2nd one is beautiful. Worth hanging on a wall !

I think they look great. Only issue I have is that the tails are cut off.....

Hi Guys, many thanks for your feedback, I appreciate it. I am getting a better handle on this combo but need to work on Birds in Flight.

Nice shots ,  I have the same combo.

How are you going with the AF settings ? I am still trying to work out the best combinations for BIF.

Well done, that’s always a difficult situation with lots of branches getting in the way of a good focus.
