I went over to the park across the street to try it out. These were all taken hand held. I also have not checked yet for Front/Back focus adjustment, if needed. I just had to try it out in field conditions.

This first photo shows there is definitly a problem, the second Ibis is totaly out of focus. Or could that be depth of field he he.

I think this lens will work out, just need to learn to use it.

Very nice shots! When I see pictures like this I want to get something like this. Then I think of the weight and realize there's just no way I could deal with a lens like this.

Did you handle one before deciding to buy one?

No, i did have a Sigma 100-300mm that was my heaviest lens. I sold it when I bought the DA* 300mm. This lens is about four pounds and would probably work best on a mono- or tri-pod. I find I lose more shots by their limits tha I gain in stedieness with nature shots, where you never know where the next opportunity will show up. This will wear on me on a long day. I do still have, and will keep the Tokina 80-400mm F/4.5 - 5.6 which is less than two pounds.
