Do you have anything specific to say about any cameras or lenses? Or fancy recommending a really good one you have come across? Post in here

considering it for birding, might also be up for the 1.4 mkII extender

I bought a 100-400 is L Mk 2 lens about a year ago and must say that it is probably my most used lens , the photos are extremely sharp , its not too heavy so not too much of a burden on a long hike, the focus is fast and accurate and I have been using it almost 100% of the time with a 1.4 Mk2 extender . I am mostly a Wildlife photographer and find it a great focal length to work with, the 1.4X brings it up to a 560mm F8 , remember you loose a stop of light with the Extender but it retains most of the sharpness of the lens. Here are a few photos taken with the set up....
