Tried out my new EF 400 f/2.8 lens on the birds in the back garden.
All shot's taken at 800m/m.
Very nice Jim, wish i could afford a 400 2.8 one day maybe , one day
it would be super dooper for my sports photography
Problem is Harry, it is a hell of a size.
And with my 5D + battery pack + x2 extender attached, it weigh's 6kg-13.2lbs.
Bought a Benro GH2 gimbal head to cope with the bulk and weight.
Makes the whole thing weigh-less.
Canon 5D + x2 extender + EF 400m/m f/2.8
Canon 70-200m/m f/2.8
Great tri pod set up Jim, i see you have tyhe 2.8 70-200, i have one og those as well it is great for sports ,
my sigma is to low spec for sports but it does ok in good light coditions ,
i have just saved for a new Lap top this week , so next saving fund is or the big lens , then a another body then some more lenses then a decent tri pod , it is never ending once you have the photography bug ha ha ha ,
but we live in hope maybee my numbers will come up.
Also have a Manfrotto 334B mono pod set up.
Ideal for sports and wildlife photography.
The mono pod can take up to 8kg in weight.
Helps keep your photo's sharp in low light situations.
You can use higher f stops to get a better depth of field to.
