Having retired a few years ago I decided to go for a digital camera to do a little wildlife photography.
I started with a Canon 350D and not knowing much about lens I bought a 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM.
I soon realised that this was not the lens I needed so I bought the 100-400mm, then I got 1x4 extender.
The 40D came out last year so I got that and before I went to France and the Camargue I decided on a 300mm f4. All I have to do now is practice. lol
