These are great! Thanks for sharing! Where did you see them cross the river?

I will be in the park starting in mid-May, but I will probably head home for a week starting June 4th before returning for my tour. So hopefully if you are around at all we'll run into each other.

Thanks Katie and Max. I guess it will come down to available space when we start packing our gear. I'd rather drag it across the country than sit wishing I had it with me.
Max, I believe we're there a week before your group. We leave Jackson and fly out of SLC the day your tour starts. Believe me I thought hard about trying to get in or even grabbing a day if you were available, but just couldn't make it happen!
Thanks for the tip about the 5d3. I know that's a sweet combo and you're right, I can always swap out if need be.

Wow! What a treat to watch the wolf by yourself! Other photos are fantastic, too!

500 as your primary, 100-400 as your second. It's nice to have a versatile zoom on your second body.
If you are concerned about low light situations, I would put the 5DIII on the 500. I usually have my 1DX on my longest lens for this reason anyway, and put the 7DII on if I really feel I need extra "reach."

I'd take it! f2.8n could come in very handy. I can tell you how often I wished I had f2.8, so I wouldn't leave it behind if I had one!!!

Thanks RikWriter, the 100-400 is a definite. Like you, my Tamron will likely hit the marketplace. The 300 is just such a sweet lens tho, I may have to suffer (or ask my wife to suffer) and carry the added weight.

I'd bring the 100-400. Easier to carry hiking on rough ground if you should have the need.

Spotted near Lava Creek this beautiful wolf played and posed for about half an hour. Picking up and tossing sticks it was no different than watching the family pet in the front yard. But make no mistake this is no family pet.
For a half hour? What kind of traffic jam did that create? A great sighting indeed.
Believe it or not there was only one car that passed during that time, they took a few pics with and ipad and moved on

Thanks Steve. The 300 is definitely better optically, but the 100-400 is so darned versatile! Plus the value is probably low enough at this point I could pack it in the regular luggage if need be. Like your idea tho, leaning towards both!

I think I'd bring the 300 and leave the 100-400.
Which is the better lens? Bring that one
