Default "In the cold Kentucky raaaaaaaaaaiiiyayayaaainnn!

Elvis lives! I got the 50-200mm today and I am very please with it. It's going to take a little getting-used-to. Especially, with the EC-20 on it! Not a lot of PP done on these. Shot on a VERY rainy, gloomy day.

The 50-200+EC20 does equal a lot of magnification! I know you'll really like working with it though, especially after it stops raining...

Wow, these are SO outstanding! I lust for that lens, but for now will have to content myself with enjoying beautiful bird shots like yours.

Nice shots; obviously you are going to enjoy that lens. Just someone else on this forum to remind me that I don't yet own one.

Now I have to work even harder to get shots with my 70-300 to compete with yours. LOL!

I never REMOTELY pictured myself with this lens until things just fell into place and I came across a GREAT deal on one. Thanks, Angie.

The 70-300 is no slouch, Steve. I like it so much, I got another one to replace the one I sold!

Very nice pictures specially the #1 for the detail, did you use tripod ?

It is the EC-20 weather sealed?

Regards.

Thanks very much, Marcelo. Yes, I use a tripod 98% of the time. I really don't know if the EC-20 is sealed or not. I shoot from indoors
