Lens envy….

After a bit of self justification I have now invested in a new zoom lens to replace my Sigma 120-400… the Canon EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6 L IS II USM…

Canon EF 100-400mm

The Sigma has served me well but was occasionally hit and miss on the sweet spot for image quality and sharpness… seeing as this range of lens is what I use the most I decided to invest in the best of class… I was not disappointed… this lens is actual awesome!

A few test shots…

This one was done handheld…

…same again a few days later on a tripod just to see how effective IS was…

And of course a moon shot using a 2x Sigma APO teleconvertor

Really happy with this lens and looking forward to being able to use it properly once race season starts next year at Castle Combe… I also plan to go to Thruxton again for a round of BTCC.
