My favorite lens for wildlife, a breeze to use even without IS. Three different cameras and good results with all



the first three hand with a canon 40D








and this one with a 400D hand held again



last one was with a canon 30D hand held again as I really dislike using tripods and this lens is a breeze to work with

Nice photos. I really, really like #2 with its artistic alomost surreal quality. I've been thinking about this lens (or the 300 2.8) so it is good to see what the lens can do. My problem is that lighting is always not the best.

Thanks for checking them out. And yes this lens does need light to be at its best.

Well done ALF! Lovely detail in all your captures. Itoo prefer the flexibilty of hand-held over tri-pod. Cheers, Dan

All are beautiful, but #2 is something special! Nicely done.

great stuff, Julie... nice and sharp with any of your cameras. i also dislike using a tripod for wildlife work, it slows me down too much. i have a 100-400L which i find incredibly versatile for nature work, and pretty much never put it on a tripod...

Thanks, Ive often pondered getting the 100-400 but tend to use the 400 a distance where Id need it at 400 anyway, I also use the 70-200 F2.8L for wildlife, both lenses very sharp
