Thanks Dan. Last year I had the 100-400 on the 7D and the 24-70 on the 5D. It worked out good, I want to try a 400 prime to see how that works. I can't complain about the 100-400. The 100-400 from Lens Rental last year was really pristine. It was a shame it didn't come with a better operator!







Hey knucklehead, that 100-400 is a zoom!...Zoom out!

The more I think about it, the less interest I have in the 200-400................once again, if they ever release it. Ten grand for a 200-400 doesn't tempt me much.



Would have to say it would be fun to play with though... Built in tele converter...

I had a chance to handle one at WPPI...

Let's just say it didn't dampen my enthusiasm at all.

I was excited for that lens til I heard the price, just seems way outside of an appropriate price range.

Ordered my lens for the Central TX Airshow today. Last year I used the 100-400, this year I will try the 400 5.6. I was reading Roger's (Lens Rentals) comments for the two lenses. He said you get the 100-400, then, discover every shot is at 400mm. Well, that really wasn't 100% true last year, but I will have the 70-200 to back it up. I left it home last year because I had the 100-400. Anyway, why not try something different.


Interestingly enough, I have noticed that I was usually around 300mm for most passes, so I pulled the trigger on a 300 prime and have loved that lens. Not to say there won't be times I would want that extra 100 for sure.

I used to bring both a 100-400 and a 70-200 f/2.8 to air shows. The former because I knew I would use it a lot, the second because it's such a great lens. After never taking the 70-200 out of the bag during the first few shows, I stopped carrying the extra brick. It might have been a different story if I only had a 400 prime, but I still don't know if I would bother with the 70-200 unless it was on a second body.

Did we just gain a "Buddy" button?

Jay,
that is about one of the cleanest images I have seen here in a very long time. And this is not to detract from all of the fabulous images that have been posted, but the shiny metal and crispness of the image make me feel like I'm standing right there.

Wow

TYVM... Pretty happy with that one. It's heat haze season already so shots like that will be rare for a while.

Just got home from the McSam Award banquet, incredible night! My clients took top honors in 25 0f 30 categories, and builder of the year. Very gratifying. What an opportunity to market to 400 builders and developers, and architects, without having to really market. We owned the room this year and it felt great.

That's super, Jim. Congratulations! You earned every bit of it.

(And I'm off to bed. Another 6am flight coming up.)
