Finally all my hard work has paid off and I have saved enough to place an order for this bad boy - The Canon EF 100 - 400 4.5 - 5.6 L is li usm.
Been wanting to get this to replace my trusty Tamron 150-600 vc which I've enjoyed using since I got it for Christmas 2015 but now it's time to upgrade to a faster sharper lense.
Paired with my 7dmk2 I will finally have what many consider for wildlife photography as the best value for money vs results pairing of Camera body and lens you can get.
I spent a long time trying to decide if the 70-200 f2.8 with a 2x teleconverter or a 300 or 400 f4 prime would be a better option but I've decided for the type of photography work I do the 100-400 is going to be my go to lens from now on.
So the new lens finally arrived. I was very excited and then I saw the box 😔 not exactly what I want to see. Box looked like the courier has used it for a game of soccer. Then I opened it up to find that the actual Canon packaging had taken a hit in the corner.... at this point my heart was beating a little faster as there is a lot of expensive glass in that box.
Thankfully on first examination it appeared to be ok. Canon builds them tough!
Straight after i got the Lens My Wife Paulette and I went for a road trip down to Rotorua. Thankfully the lens seemed to be working perfectly - Watch this Space!
