Very good shots, especially #1.
The lens is obviously excellent for BIF in good light, and copy-to-copy IQ variations are almost unheard of.

Thank you gentleman for the good words and time taken! Good light makes up for no IS, and Mr.Petkal will enjoy the fact that the camera used is my good ol' 1dMkIIn................Mike

He, he, 1DMkIIN still rules, although I've been doing 1DsMkII for the past two months and it is OK too.
Looking forward to test 1DX.

Great work. I really need to practice my BIF photos. I love #3. The droplets of water coming off the bird make it for me. Re you sure you're new to that lens?

In shots 2 and 3 most of the birds are out of focus apart from those annoyingly flying across the frame. I'd take it back if I was you.

Seriously though, 3 excellent shots.

Thats a very fine lens, probably the best out there in terms of value in a telephoto. And the 1DIIN is no slouch either.
You cant go wrong with that combo. These are excellent shots, right on the money

Nice work. I just got this lens myself (moved from a Sony a700) and I am loving it. This is what I told a friend just after I got the lens (and a new 7D):

"I did a little shooting today. I was out front of our house trying to shoot a hummingbird at our feeder with the 400mm, and it wasn't focusing, then I said to myself, "focus limiter!", moved the switched, and then focused. The speed incredible, the focus was immediate and it was basically inaudible. I rattled off three shots before I knew what happened. I laughed out loud with joy. This is going to be fun."
