#TeamCanon: 'It’s @pie_aerts with my last post of my trip to Uganda and the use of the EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM. During this journey I carried with me a Canon Extender EF 1.4x III to extend the 500mm focal length of my lens to a mind-blowing 700mm. An amazing little tool to extend your reach and get really close and personal with the wildlife your are photographing.
Let’s sum up my previous 3 posts. Shooting for three weeks with this lens changed the way I look at wildlife photography. Although we all know it isn’t the cheapest available option, the performance is one of elite standards. It’s a huge step-up from its previous version and if you ask me, a more convenient alternative for its bulky 600mm brother. When you only shoot for fun, this lens most likely is out of your league, but for professional photographers like myself, it’s an investment. An investment in better images, in educating yourself, in fine-tuning your skills and most importantly, in more fun during your work. Because in the end, that’s what it’s all about for me.'
