p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · More Kananaskis 200-400 Pictures - Moose, Bighorn, Grizzly


As I indicated yesterday, I bought a 200-400 and headed for the mountains thursday, and found some wildlife.

Here are some other pictures that I liked after review yesterday.

I mixed in my 600f4 pictures.

Observations are:
- quality is so close that only the obvious conclusions are available
-600 w f4 is one stop faster than 200-400 w 1.4int - not a profound observation, but 600 on 7d lets you get far away and not disturb the animals.
- So close in 200-400 is better but 600 is better when they are further away and you don't want to scare them in the bush.
- the combination of 600 and 200-400 is superb
- Other that I have already said:
- 200-400 is same weight as 600 about
- switching back and forth to 1.4 is really easy
- in the car the 200-400 shines because it does not hit the mirror etc like the 600
- its hard to hold and zoom because its heavy and one hand is on shutter and one hand holding and the zoom is stiff but I am happy

1-2 of 6

More great shots...seems you're off to a blazing start with that new lens. I see the last shot of the nibbling griz as something I'd put on the wall, the colors of the meadow fading into the blue makes for a real winner.

ScottHM: Yes I think the last grizzly nibbling in the meadows is a wall hanger. The great thing about 7d with long lens is that you get far away and the grizzlies can be natural. Glad you like it. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Just checked your website out for the first time. You have some absolutely wonderful art work there. It's a crying shame you don't charge for your work with some of your stuff...damn.
