Hi all.

I am sticking with a replacement of my 100-400 which was also stolen.

Yes it won't do the body justice but for now I thought.... Get the 1DX at all costs...

I can worry about a big fast prime lens later.

Even the 300 F2.8 IS USM mkii is more expensive than the 1DX and 100-400 combined!!!


Just got an update and I might get my gear by the end of the week.

Here is hoping!!!

Now I just need my car back. Still probably two to three weeks before the panel beaters sort it out.....

Then off to Barberspan to play :)

Exactly.

It is such a versatile lens even if not as sharp as the primes :)

Glad to hear that you're going to be able to keep the camera, and not get rid of it to solve your financial woes - hope it stays that way.

Doug,

Just thought I'd let you know that my last post - the bird and rugby shots from Mendoza - were taken using my Canon 1D mkIV with the 100-400mm lens. It is a good combination and in good light there is not too much difference in the images to using my f2.8 300mm.
