Last year my Canon 70-200 lens broke and I had to manually focus which is difficult in the pouring rain trying to look through a fogged up plastic covered eye piece! Ugh. I missed so many shots that should have been perfect. Sadly not, but now I have a new lens although really I should have a 400mm as many dismiss me as a wildlife photographer as I dont have large lenses. If you see my photos though, you will see that I just get closer... I have special experiences with wildlife. I don't push them, they come to me.
