    Which Canon body for a 100-400 mkII?

    I have a Fuji XT1 mirrorless at the moment. Having considered it further, I'll probably stay with Fuji, upgrade my body and buy the Fuji 100-400 (eq. 150-600) lens. Thanks.

    Which Canon body for a 100-400 mkII?

    And now a rumour of Mirrorless APS-C R series

He'd never seen a Golden Eagle or a male Hen Harrier, but these being my first birdwatching trips, we saw both. In fact one evening we mapped out a plan to find a...

    Which Canon body for a 100-400 mkII?

    Hello folks. Post no.2 from me (just joined from the Cotswolds) and I'm already pestering for advice on what sort of gear to buy for bird photography. I'm an ex-designer/photographer, with no previous experience of bird photography. I currently have a Fuji mirrorless set-up, but it's not...

    Hello from the Cotswolds

    Hello everyone. My first time on a bird enthusiasts forum. I know a wee bit about birds, having been on birdwatching trips to Skye and Islay with a very knowledgable friend several years ago - and having built up a collection of bird books from there - but I'm looking forward to learning lots...
