    Which Camera?

    My 1st DSLR was the 450d great camera pick them up for £250 on ebay used with standard lens, however you could pick up a the same camera minus standard Lens but with a Canon 70-300mm f4-5.6 IS USM EF great starter kit for your budget.

    Switching from 400mm f5.6 to 300mm f4?

    I think alot of people shoot small birds at a distance, then crop close in, and then blame the lens for the bad IQ, improve your field-craft and get much closer to the birds, of cause your speed and light should be right that goes without saying..... BTW Merry Xmas everyone
