My new Telephoto Set-Up…

Hereby a few pictures of my new telphoto set-up.

The tripod is a Triopo Carbon Tripod with the Triopo B4 Ball Head. Also with tripod leg coats from

Last week i bought the approximately 10 years old Canon EF 300mm F/2.8L non IS and the Extender 1.4 II and 2X II. This gives me a shooting range of 420mm F/4 with the 1.4X Extender and 600mm F/5.6 with the 2.0X Extender. On the Canon 7D Body it gives me (in 35mm Equvivalent) 672mm F/4 and 960mm F/5.6!!!

The lens is outstanding on all performance criteria. It is absolutely razor sharp also with the extenders. Rumors actually says, that it should be slightly sharper than the two newer IS and IS II models be course of no extra IS lens element.

The IQ (AF, Auto focus) is fast, accurate and silent. And last but not least i do not have to mention anything about the build quality of a Canon L lens.

All in all i am very satisfied with my new baby, and looking forward to shoot some more birds and other animals this spring and summer.
