Up close and personal

I have taken delivery of a new lens that allows me to get a little more up close and personal with my photographic quarry, even our smaller garden birds. And so – like all keen photographers I know – I took the first chance I had to mount it on to a camera body to give it a quick road test. Here are just a couple of shots I particularly like from the latest piece of kit's first outing…

Canon 1Ds MkII, 1/200 sec, f/5.6, 390mm at ISO 640 
Canon 1Ds MkII, 1/250 sec, f/6.3, 370mm at ISO 800 


  1. nice pics Tim. Is your new lens a 400mm, or have you put a converter on a smaller lens ?

  2. HI Warren. It's an image stabilized 100-400mm. Hope that helps. Tim

  3. Darned good I say! We do NEED to know the details, we are nosey like that. ;-)

  4. If it's details you need, it's actually a Canon EF L-series 100-400mm f/4.5 IS USM and I love it already! :)
