Canon 100-400 vs. 400 f/5.6
I have written a review which compares these two lenses. You read the review here. Apart from my own curiosity, my other motivation for doing this was because its a question that seems to come up all the time on various internet fora.
The above image was taken earlier this week as I walked around with the 7D and 400 f/5.6, photographing various subjects to get a feel for the lens. The red-winged blackbird decided to leave its perch and started flying towards me the instant just before I gotten a focus lock, but I still managed to lock on and get a decent image.
Technical Specs: Canon 7D, 400 f/5.6, f/6.3, 1/1250s, ISO 1600.
