What a difference a lens makes!

January 10, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

In anticipation of a trip I had planned to take this week (which has been postponed for a short time), I rented a professional lens for my bird photography to replace my Canon 70-300mm zoom which has been giving me very soft images.  The lens was a Canon 300mm f/4L IS with a Canon EF Extender 1.4x III.  I had a chance to play with the lens this past weekend and I am totally blown away!!!  This was my first exposure to a pro lens and I’m sold…the detail was absolutely incredible.  I’ll definitely be saving my pennies for this lens and extender and it will be very hard to go back to my older lens until I can get this one.  Here are just a few examples from my bird feeder.  Please click on the image for a larger view: This nuthatch was shot with the 300mm lens only. Another shot from the same distance with the 1.4mm extender attached. An enlargede detail from the first photo. An enlarged detail from the second photo. A titmouse with the 1.4mm extender attached. An enlarged detail of the titmouse. Another enlarged detail of the titmouse.
