    Beginner looking for advise (Canon 7d mkII + Tamron 100-400 Di VC USD)

    Thanks for the additional feedback. Since I created this thread, I eventually managed to start getting shots I was happy with, but with a pretty low hit rate. The camera and lens did require fairly strong micro adjustment and I never managed to get anything reasonable when shooting wide open...

    I've decided to take the step into DSLR photography. I've previously used a superzoom that was able to document what I saw, but with very clear limitations in terms of usability and picture quality. I was therefore hoping for a leap forward with my new equipment (see specs in the thread title)...
