That's very good for a long lens - love your first shot. I'm amazed you didn't get more camera shake with the hawk, the pictures aren't perfect, but far better than I would have expected.

Thanks. Lots of useless ones of the hawk but i think the fact I could hold the lens against the pillar is what saved me. But boy did my arm get sore fast! This lens is not meant to be hand held, at least not by me. Image quality is good though. PF will be an issue but hopefully with better light I can minimize that. Seems to be a keeper.

Pretty good for a such long lens without tripod...

Does that hawk only have one leg or does he just have the other tucked...?

Thanks. I'm assuming he had it tucked away. I've seen them do that before. Maybe their legs get cold.

Great results with the new lens - looks like a fine piece of equipment in some talented hands!

Many thanks Mole! It would be fun to compare it to your 135-600. I would hope yours would be better given how much more they cost but you never know. Long way to travel just to do some tests however

Thanks, no regrets I bought it for sure I can't wait to see what it will do when the light is better. It does get a bit heavy to lug around but I usually only shoot for a couple of hours so i don't see it being a real problem. Thankfully the birds will be on this lake all winter so i should get some great chances here at some point.

When they shoot good pics a lens tends to get lighter!

So true! Alas it's cold and sunny today but work will get in the way of picture taking. If course it's supposed to rain all weekend. Sigh....
