    Hi David,

    Welcome to the forums. I use the 7D and 100-400 L combo. I agree it works really well. Sometimes the AF isn't as fast as I would like, but it is still much faster than my other telephoto lens (an old 75-300).

    A few recent pics from the combination:

    Welcome to the forums, David!

    Let me start off by saying that turkey shot is awesome! Very sharp!

    I've used the combo for awhile now and think it is the best combo for the money! I started out with the 300mm f/4L IS and a 1.4 extender but have been happier with the 100-400mm.

    A vast majority of my bird shots on flickr were taken with the 7d and 100-400mm combo and can be seen here ...

    Those are phenomenal shots Denise, nice gallery as well. I cannot wait to get my combo of the 7D and 100-400mm now that I have seen what it can do.

    Any input will be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.
    Wow, I can't believe I missed this post---I do own and use a 7D with a 100-400 and it is my favorite combo when walking, hiking or just need a carry around rig. Like you, birds, wildlife and nature are my favorite subjects.

    That said, this combo is capable of very nice shots, but can also leave you frustrated at times. Learn to use the IS the lens offers----when the opportunity allows, use manual focus, shoot above 1/800th and use a tripod if you can. I don't know what you are used to but moving in to the super-tele range requires practice and patience---but.......this combo can produce some incredible shots: here are some that I am proud of:









    So as you can see from these shots and those that others have posted, this is a very capable combo---and highly recommended---Good luck.

    Great shot's Bob, I especially like the second one. Is it a road runner? I only saw a few while I was out in Cali, so I'm not too sure. The others are great as well.
