This one too was taken in the afternoon when the color seems to get much richer, without the filter holder in the Sigma 300mm APO 2.8 lens. It is much harder to hand hold than the FA* since it weighs about three times as much, but with a tripod it seems to do just fine.

This one is cropped a bit to get rid of some distracting horse backsides that were in the original.

Cute little guy! I sure wouldn't want to own him in a month or two - you'd be brushing him for days.

The lens looks very sharp - I'm glad you keep mentioning the tripod aspect of it. I could easily get to wanting this lens, but know that I'd hardly ever use it since I don't have a tripod, and probably wouldn't carry one heavy enough to handle the lens.

It isn't as heavy as the 500 4.5 that Roy and I have but it is heavy enough that you notice that it is very nose heavy. More of a lens with a camera on it instead of the normal camera with a lens on it.
