Weather last couple of days has been atrocious but went out anyway today to get some wave and bird shots.

Here's a couple of terns.

Thanks Roy

Both shots were taken with an old Sigma 400 PKAF lens handheld.

In both cases I accidentally moved rear wheel adjuster to a narrower aperture than intended so this is something to watch out for, especially when patrolling estuary etc.I also had the de-noise turned off but I am now putting it back on as can always sharpen quite a bit.

Have attached original size of one shot.

Cheers:Ian Mc

Does this mean it is better/faster to turn it off?
