I'm confused. In your last thread about buying a new DSLR you said you bought the 5dIII and it was fabulous. What happened to the 5dIII you already owned?

telephoto for landscape and wildlife are two very different things. For most wildlife (and you mention hiking), 200mm is woefully short. You're better off with something like the 100-400 for...
