Hi Ronny,

Very nice -- I assume it lives up to your expectations. . . if not, you can send it to me for disposal :-).

Nice job getting so close -- I'm currently subscribing to the "get as long a lens as you can hold, so if you can't get close. . . so what?" school of birding :-).

Looking forward to seeing more results from this lens.

Scott

Roy,

with the K10 you set the focal length for the sr and this setting is also used in the exif data when there is none coming from the camera.

Thanks Tom,

the only CA up till now has been when I've got a completely blown background, but that is really asking for it.

Thanks Scott,

I guess the delivery cost I would have to ask would be to high :blah:
I've got that same Idea for birding the longer the lens the better. Still dreaming (planning) to get a Sigma 50-500, and until I get that one I can use this one to build some muscles to hold it. :-)

Thanks Rodney

While the three first show the capability of the lens, my favourite is the last one. It shows something more than how the birds look, there is some kind of social message or whatever. They do look as if they have something in mind... watch out!
