Last saturday I had a terrible attack of lba, but then I got the go from my lovely wife to get myself a small lens. :roll:

It was in stock in a shop a good 140km from where I live, and after a short drive:lol: I was home with my new toy.

The only problems since then
  • the weather[/*]
  • work (ok it pays for this lens but to much is to much)[/*]
This evening was the first time I could try the lens in descent weather.

I know I'm going to like this lens very much.

Some shots
Oh yes C&C is always welcome.

:GRonny:G

first shot is without any processing, just cropped, not resized

0.002 sec (1/500) - f/6.3 - 300 mm - 160iso

this one is a bit sharpened and resized by flickr (so extra sharpened)

0.013 sec (1/80) - f/6.3 - 300 mm - 160iso

This is the same blackbird but a bit farther away, and a tamron 1.4tc added to the lens.
Some sharpening, but not resized only cropped.

0.006 sec (1/160) - f/7.1(x1.4) - 300 mm x1.4 = 420mm - 320iso

Hi Ronnie,

Congrats! That's a fine lens, and if I didn't already have a couple of pretty good fast 300s, I'd be seriously looking to get one (luckily I don't "need" one).

Looks like it's already earning its keep -- I'll be looking forward to more from you with this lens..

Thanks Scott,

next week I'm going to Croatia, visit some nature reserves - one of the biggest reason's to get this lens, and I'm hoping on a lot of keepers to post here.

Happy birthday and welcome to the thrilling world of no DOF and the never ending search for a lighter but yet sturdier tripod!:-)
