Chickadee with 300 mm f/4 lens and new Canon 7D

Chickadee with Canon 300 mm lens

Chickadee on a branch

After I purchased my new Canon 300 mm f/4.0 lens, I realized that my T1i was starting to get rather “long in the tooth”.  I’ve had my eye on a Canon 7D for quite a while, so I decided to sell a few more things that I don’t use anymore and purchase the 7D.

This is the first photo I’ve posted taken with both the 7D and the 300 mm.  I had a Kenko Pro 300 1.4 extender on the lens, which brought it up to 420 mm (with the 1.6 crop factor, that makes it 672 mm equivalent).  I’m very pleased with this combination, especially the fast focusing and the high frames per second compared to the T1i.

More photos to come soon.
