Well, both were at the max range of the 400 and I still have to get used to the weight.

Nice captures John. The lens isVERY versatile, has some flaws, then so do Porshe and Benz and Rolls etc, the weight does take some getting used to, however, when you see and feel some other lenses like eric's [600 prime], the 100-400 looks like a toy. It seems a little saturation boost might improve the pics a bit ??

Thanks all. I hear you on the saturation. I was shooting RAW and using a saturation action for my scenic shots (majority) but I didn't use it for shots with peopla / animals. Probably forgot to manually bump up the saturation. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks. So far I'm impressed with image quality when pushing the 100-400. When I was using 70-200 plus 1.4x tc, if I had to crop at all there was a big loss of detail. But I guess that's one of the things you're paying for when you buy a lens like this.
