thanks, yes it was with my beat up A*300. the 70-210 was taken at a greater distance and the crop was tighter. it does make a difference. i'm ready for the A1.4x-s to get here to give it a try with the 300. hopefully i can handhold it.

Nice shots, Roy. Wish I could hand-hold as steady as you.

Regards,

Lawrence

Great shots... I do see what appears to be some slight haloing in the second shot aruond the beak, but it dosen't really effect the picture that much... Again, fantastic shooting. Must be really nice to find creatures like this in your back yard.

Great shots Roy. Love the detail in the first 2. That star lens does seem to take a fair shot! LOL

ronny,
there's a quarter acre pond next to the house. i've gotten many a wildlife shot from what it attracts.. look out because i saw my first jumping spider today.. spring is in the air.

Dr. Lawrence,
this lens took me a long time to realize it was me and not the lens giving me trouble. when you can brace yourself is best.

tom,
i'm going to take a look at the new *300.. bottom line tho is i'd rather have the F*300 with the tripod ring. hopefully when the new one debuts it'll drive the cost of the old lenses down from their ridiculous prices.

I love hawk shots. Nice capture considering the dense branches that it is hiding amongst. Good contrast.
