Picked up a Canon 70-200L f4 today and can hopefully start getting some better wildlife shots. Here's a few test shots from today.

Nice people call me crazy for hauling my big slr and 70-200f4L is around for hikes, skiing. And sometimes I am. But you can't argue the quality of the images (and neither do my hiker friends). They usually just hound me to post the finals. I've tried many point and shoots, and I just can't do it. Its like getting used to fine wine then being forced to settle with a glass of malt liquor to go with my meal, not happening.

Thanks.

Well, with the weight savings of not having to carry avy and ski gear, i'm still ahead of the game if I take the lens and SLR and soon i'll add the 10-22 in there too. It's not like one has to carry much for hiking. I really can't wait to get some ski photo's out of this.

I'd love to see some ski / board shots you have taken with the 70-200 if you have time to post some up.

^ I tried to today. The sheep were the token consolation prize. Also saw some elk but they were hidden in the trees, and I wasn't about to sneak in there with young ones napping. That and the mother had a trouble maker collar on = stay away lol. Going to try for bears in the next few days.

You got it. These are all cropped, and I couldn't be happier with this lens. I should have had the continuous shooting on for the coyote since just after this was taken it pounced about 4 times and ate a ground squirrel...the shot is of the coyote looking for it's meal.
