Default The MOON with my 400mm prime lens

The lens weighs a ton and so does the tripod but I was determined to get it all outside and see how it shot the moon. I used a Canon 7 D

I must say that is one of the clearer ones I have seen in a while! Great going on this one, worth its weight in gear.....Is that a f/2.8 or f/4?

Thank you all for the encouragement. I was wondering if I should sell this very expensive lens. it weighs 12 pounds and is impossible to take around.

This is a heck of a lens. I can tell the difference between my picture of the moon and yours. This lens has its worth in taking pictures like this.

I checked, and there is no adaptor for my Hasselblad, anywhere..... again, is it the f/2.8 or f/4?? Quite a difference in pricing between the two...Just wondering.

I expect expense is relative. I have seen the price for that particular lens, I must agree it is not within the price budget of most non professional shooters. I am sure at the right price someone would be happy to have this and it is worth what it cost in my opinion. Clean, sharp, and well used in your hands. My complements!

Thanks for the complement. i used a Hasselblad for film so I know what you mean. Their Digital is out of sight as far as I am concerned. Do you like it?
