Congratulations on the Bigma! You've made great use of it--cockatoo shots are very crisp.

Thanks Paul, and thanks to forum members who have posted shots from Bigma and gave me the confidence to buy one of these lenses.

Cockatoos in flight. Unfortunately not focussed well enough.

Wonderful!

Are these captive birds or actually wild ones roaming about in your neighbourhood? I think they are amongst the most protected species on earth.

Looks like you have taken to that lens well.

Still envious of anyone who has one.

The price over here hasn't moved in 2 years - still at £728 (around$1500)

Very nice. The fill flash is just the right amount. Care to share your flash details and setings?
