Hi Rocky. Thanks very much. The 30d and the 300L f/4 IS which is what I use 99% of the time. It's really a great lens for birding.....cheers...Don

i'd have thought a 300 would be a bit "short" for serious bird shots, but you seem able to get plenty close enough with it... i may have to look into one of those if i can't get the kinks out of my 100-400L...

You can always attach a 1.4extender on it, and it works very well. No IQ problems I can see, but it ends up being 420mm @ f/5.6....D.

Excellent Don! Wonderful work. I agree with you in that the 300mm F4 with the 1/4tc is a great birding lens. Ihave the Nikon equivalent (no IS) and use it as my primary setup.
