The first impression is that the Scope has better optics then the lens - but to be fair, you would have to take a sjhot from the lens so that the two images are the same size.

Impressive results - Whats the mm of the Nikon? 1000mm?

The f stop?

Hi Dave, yes, 1000mm. f14 @ 1/25. We could really use some sunshine up here so I could play some more with this set-up. That and I think a new set of glasses for the manual focus:-)

Oh no! MY comment was to say that the Nikon optics look SOOOO much sharper then the lens....:lol:

Not the other way around.

It just seems to me that to "Confirm" that, you should cut the distance in half and shoot one with the lens - that would be a better comparison of the optics.

And while you're at these various tests - go out and buy me one of those Nikon Scopes - and as a reward I PROMISE, the first thing I'll do is compare it to my Swarovski.

Gotcha. The lens was hand held while the scope was not. I'll have to get out and do an optics comparison as you suggest. Never thought of that. Took a couple bird shots in bright sunlight when I first got it, I was pretty impressed. But it's been overcast here it seems like for a month. Maybe I'll have to go back to Costa Rica
