As promised here are a couple of images taken on the 400D with the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM
It's the edge of winter here and a dull, gun-metal day that sucks the colour out of everything, and I couldn't find a real bird to cooperate and pose for me, but luckily I have this garden thing representing a Tui, perched on our driveway entry post.
All shots taken at ISO400, hand-held - processed in Lightroom to reduce the image size to max 2.5 MB
150mm f8 1/50 sec
200mm f8 1/60sec
115mm f11 1/30sec

Nice as always.
I hate adapters so anything that requires an adapter to just fit on my camera is going to get the thumbs down. Plus that lens is one of the totally manual lenses. Not necessarily a bad thing but not for the money.

I am not a fan of adaptors either. I much prefer to use a lens with the mount for the body make one is using it on.
The last time I used adaptors was way back in the 1980s with Tamrom Adaptall SP lenses for Canon and Nikon mounts, but those were the days of film and there were very few electronics involved.

"... the 1980s with Tamrom Adaptall SP lenses..."
Ah, yes, some very ancient gray matter was awoke with that. I had one of those. I think everybody did.

With reference to the previous post(s) regarding a 'Lens adapter for a Sigma Lens for a Canon Camera'. I have included a photo I have just taken with a Sigma 400mm f5.6 lens and Canon EOS 400D camera using a Beschoi CY-EOS lens Adapter. When the picture was taken it was 8.00pm and the light was becoming subdued. The Camera was on 1/125th Sec 400ASA Auto white balance f5.6 but displayed f0.0 when the photo was taken.

My previous photo displayed here was not altered or processed in Photoshop but reduced in size to be admitted with my post.
Can I suggest using another method to reduce your image size in MB? My images are also well in excess of those permitted but I go to Lightroom and reduce the file size in the save process, instead of the image size before saving. That way we can appreciate the merit of your image more fairly.
