Hi everyone. I'm an amature photographer that just recently started taking wildlife photos. I'm hoping to learn a lot from all of you!
Your 80-400 zoom lens should be fine. My walk & stalk weapons of choice for local birds are a Canon 5D Mark III + 4.5-5.6/100-400L telephoto zoom + 1.4 teleconverter. My use of a 1.4x teleconverter is fairly recent after Canon upgraded the firmware of the 5DIII so the autofocus will function at f/8.0Thanks Bill! I'll take a look at those eagle threads. I'll probably be over driving my short lens even with a 1.4 added ;-)
