Message from John Molloy
Below is a list of camera equipment I currently use:
Camera: Canon EOS 7D; Canon EOS 40D
Lenses: Sigma 300mm f/2.8 EX APO HSM , Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 EX DG APO HSM, Canon 55-250mm IS, I also use a Sigma 1.4x Converter EX DG.

For digiscoping I still use my trusty Nikon Coolpix 995 through a Leica APO-Televid 77 with 20x W eyepiece.
