Hi,
Don't buy a lens for the pictures I have seen some STUNNING shots with a 75-300 from Canon but when I had the lens I sold it as quick as you can say "duh ?" ;D.

On the other hand, it IS a marvelous lens ;D.

The Grey Herons are in large numbers found in this area, I live in a agricultural area which much nature and open space this means a lot of birds, from small to large.
Most shots you find here are made at a nature park only 20 minutes from my home were the birds are a bit more relaxed, it's not a zoo but more of a very large open space were people are allowed to walk, but no cars, stereo's etc. you can see the animals there in their own habbitat. Really nice for the photographers, I can stay there for hours.

The nice thing about our area is that we have woods close by, sea/lake and open land, so we can really find about anything close at home.

Greetings,
Frank

I really like the Whooper Swans and the Egret. It would be difficult to choose.

Frank,
Believe me I would never buy a lens for the pictures that have been taken with it. I have, however played with many different 70-300 and 75-300 offerings at work, and I was never satisfied with them. I have been thinking about a long lens since before I got my 10D, and finally managed to make my decision. I was more looking to see some decent shots taken with it to know the lens has good clarity, the OS works decently, ect....
Thanks for sharing your pics with us.

Hi,
The remark was more for the public than for one person .

I see alot of people on the web choosing a lens or camera for the pictures you see on the web, that's ridicilous, even a 1MP camera can make a good webphoto .

I normally look at the quality of the photo's and browse the other lenses they have and read something about the person, if I think that's a serious photographer who cares about his stuff I believe that more than claims from websites.

The most important for me was 400mm wide open had to stay sharp, something I was doubtful about for the 100-400L because I read this from some respected photographers (although others claim otherwise aaaaargh ).

Greetings,
Frank
