Sabynag,
Go for the Canon 20D-40D body as this has a 1.6 crop factor which means your proposed 400mm will equate to 640mm...giving you an additional 240mm on a 400mm zoom without any compromise in quality.

A 100-400mm USM L IS or otherwise depends on your budget, the difference in quality is definitely there.

After seeing your photographs I was going to suggest to you earlier, that you need better equipment for wildlife photography if you are planning on making this your long term passion/ profession/ hobby.

For reference: My Great Knee pic. posted on this page is shot with a 20D body with a L series 100-400 at full focal lenght at a distance of over 20 feet.
Regards,

Default We lost 17+ tigers in 2010 till date ...

Yes, 2010 is turning out to be yet another bad year for tigers in India. We are losing them at an alarming rate in all our reserves. Don't under-estimate the "+" in 17+. This "+" includes all the unreported/unaccounted deaths (read poaching), which can be significantly higher than the reported deaths.

Corbett - 3
Bandipur - 3
Kaziranga - 2
Ranthambore - 2
Kanha - 1
Pench - 1
Bandhavgarh - 1
Valmiki - 1
Tadoba - 1
Kerala - 1
UP - 1

Here is what I got from my sources in Bandhavgarh on the death of the tigress ...


Dear Mr. Nag,
the report is out that it has been hit by a vehicle, the forensic department has inspected all vehicles which went into that route including ours. All vehicles have been given a clean chit, there is a park vehicle (pick up truck) which is suspected and another park vehicle which went in at night. Report is awaited from the forensic department. It seems it will lead to some conclusion. The bad news is that there are 3 cubs around 5 months old, so we may end up loosing 4 tigers.

Disgusting! Shame on us for not only killing a tigress by rashness but also orphaning 3 cubs.
