    found this Tamron 200-400mm f/5.6 lens online, I don't have anything that even gets close to that range, and its bloody cheap ($60) But I don't even know if its EF mount?

    its being sold as part of a deal with a Canon EOS 1000F, obviously i'd just throw the camera away and keep the lens for kicks in combination with my 7D

    thoughts, is it EF mount, does it have auto focus? :)

    Some quick Googling brought me to this:
    Someone there said it uses Canon's EF mount.
    That body has an EF mount, so it's probably safe to say it's EF.

    According to http://www.momentcorp.com/review/tam200-400.html, you'll need to stop down to f/8.0 for better performance, but your 7D does well enough at higher ISOs to combat this.

    That link also mentions autofocus.

    Keep in mind this lens uses a push-pull one ring zoom design, akin to Canon's 100-400L.

    But that's assuming we're looking at the right lens, why not contact the seller to be sure?

    If it's This One, there are some user comments in the listing. It's not made anymore. That price is extreme cheap for a 400. I paid $900 for the Sigma 120-400 I use as my bird lens.
