Ya, I had the decision of buying a new camera body or buying the lens. The lens will be with me for many, many years (intil Canon perfects the DO technology and makes a 600mm f4 DO IS. That would way about 6 lbs instead of the 13.5 LB of the 600. Now that I'd pay money for.) A camera body will be replaced in 2 years or so. So instead of buying the 1D MkII (which was cheaper) and got the 600mm instead.

I have many images taken with that lens. There is one in the wildlife section right now:

But I have others, like these:

Hope you like them. Now I gotta get to bed, I'm getting up early to photograph yellow bellied sap suckers.

Those look much better to me.
The blackbird looks a little soft... I'm not sure if it's your fault with the camera or something that could be corrected in photoshop.

The other two are good, much better than before. I especially like the last one. You got exactly the right place in focus with the eyes sharp and alert (makes the bird look "alive".. dull blank eyes with no light in them can leave the shot looking dead & flat.)

Keep it up!

Eric
