Default Spring turkey

Spring is here. The local turkeys are having a good time. I really love the 510 and 70 300 combination. It's not thousands of dollars of equipment but still does a pretty good job and as an amateur on a limited budget I thank Oly for putting out some pretty good stuff at a reasonable price.

Hi Eric,

You're absolutely correct, the 70-300mm is a great bargain when you consider the IQ it provides under the right conditions.

You did a great job with it.

Default Cropping

It really wasn't fair to the 70 300 to use these as an example of its abilities. The pictures were cropped quite a bit after the shots were taken at max 300mm on top of it. So detail wise they could have been a lot better if the turkeys were half the distance. To give you an idea how far away they actually were here is a shot at 70mm uncropped. With that in mind, I'm pretty happy with the results.

That's impressive Eric -- it really shows the range of the 70-300. (And your turkey shots are better than my try at turkey shots.)
