Columbus – July 2018 – Testing the New Lens at the Zoo

Lens envy hit me enough I picked up a new Canon EF 100-400 F/4.5-5.6 lens. With an hour or so we buzzed through the zoo so I could play with my new toy.

Taken through a dirty window. This new lens is much faster than what I had.

The 400mm is enough to pull in some shots.

The clarity is so much better than my Tamron 150-600mm, although the 600mm does get some really distant shots this won’t.

With that the last train out of the zoo was leaving. This new lens is great, I am looking forward to sharing better shots on this blog.
