K10D W/Bigma how big (photo)

I have been asked a couple of times and had some E-mails asking about how big this set up turns out to be.

This is it at 50mm

Could you post another shot with it fully extended to 500mm? Thanks. Oh and have you tried taking any pics of flying birds with this set up hand held? Or is that asking too much from this set up? I would imagine the size and length of the lens would make it very challenging.

A couple of more questions: What is the device that is connected to the hot shoe? Also, does this lens have a tripod mount that is included as part of the package? Thanks...Jay:?

Once of a sudden I feel inadequate:-)

One almost needs a Sherpa to haul it around.
I will probably get one like it when the mid-life crisis hits.

Hi royce10, I am leaving on a business trip in about 5 minutes. I will try and get it for you on Friday when I return.

I played with it for a couple of shots of some geese a long way off and they looked fine. I also used it on a running elk and once again it did fine.

Evening jelpee, on the hot shoe is a QuikAim Max RDS. Yes the mount for the tripod is included. So far I am using it to hold on to the bottom of the camera when I am shooting.

DigitalAddict thanks for commenting and for looking. I weighed it and it is 6 1/2 pounds.

Is the QuickAim Max RDS some similar toa "spotting" scope on a telescope. I "Googled" it and could not find a reference...I'd be interested to hear how it is used. Thanks, Jay

Evening Jay

It seems the same to me as using a rifle scope on a rifle.

I hope this information helps.

From their web site: KWIK AIMproduces a rugged yet affordable line of accessories for adding red dot sight (RDS) capability to digital or film cameras. The purpose of using a RDS on a camera is to enable the photographer to easily locate, frame and track rapidly moving subjects such as flying birds, airplanes, wildlife and sports figures. Unlike therather restricted viewthroughthe camera's viewfinder or LCD, particularly when zoomed in, a RDSaffords a virtually unrestricted field of view.

Here is a link to their site: http://www.kwikaim.com/Home_Page.php
