    I agree with Kayaker with the idea of a good general zoom. I don't view primes as a good option strictly by themselves. Unless you know exactly what works for you.

    BIF definitely is works well with the little I have tried.

    I'll need to get some pics posted. Lots of cool landscapes, some birds and really anything that 300mm will fit in the viewfinder.:D

    I can absolutely see the reasoning for using a bit shorter lens like a 300mm for set up back yard birds.

    New Toy!

    While this lens is ancient news, it's still the nicest I've had and more big whites will definitely be added to the collection. Quite likely the 400mm f/4 DO IS.

    Canon R5C

    Well I don't know how I didn't hear about this sooner. But the R5C looks like an interesting body. Has active cooling which I'm sure those who do a lot of video will be extremely appreciative.

    I can remember in the early days when 11mp was considered high resolution.

    We have really expanded beyond that with 45/50mp bodies and even higher than that for MF.
