Common Loons (first photos with new lens)

I bought a 500/4 IS lens on Friday to replace my older (non IS) 600mm. Naturally I had to test it out, so I headed to Algonquin Park for a couple days. These are the first photos I shot with it.... taken from my kayak using a small tripod that fits in the cockpit and a Wimberley head.
All I can say is WOW - why did I wait so long to buy this lens?

EOS 1DSm2; 500/4IS; 1.4x TC


  1. Ethan, nice shots, you will love that set-up
