No filter was used, just a Sony VCL-DH1758 Tele Lens

JBarrick, thanks for the reply. What is your honest opinion of the Sony Tele lens you are uing?
Have you ever used any other Tele lens.
Thanks, Changeling

I love it! I use it for taking wildlife shots. It will give you a reach of 734mm. Try that with a DSLR. Here is a link to see some I have taking with it.

But as far as a walk around lens, I don't think so.

Jeff, those were some great shots. I had already decided on the Sony, but wanted to see some more shots.
I'm convinced!!!:-)

What do you mean by it's not a walk around lens?

When you took the moon shot were you using a tripod ?

Yes, I most definitely used a tripod to take the moon shot. To get the sharpest shot use a tripod or fast shutter speed. The images that were taken at the link were handheld. Most wildlife shots I take are handheld.



But as far as a walk around lens, you do not get a very wide shot and minimum focus distance is around 10 feet. So you are limited to some degree, it may not be the best lens to use on all occasions.
