Since I got the longer lens the birds are letting me get close enough that I do not need the 500mm. These Anhinga photos are full frame.

K20D, Sigma 150 - 500mm

I am very pleased withthe sharpeness of this lens, just a word of warning, mine was heavily front focusing. I went to the max K20d focus adjustment of -10 and it is looking good.

Very nice shots! Looks like you are getting along very well with that lens - it's certainly sharp.

Those are some crazy birds, I went on a boat tour at Wakula Springs and saw those birds diving underwater and swimming like fish to get food, then they have to spread there wings so they can dry before they can fly again "as you can see by the photo's".

Great shots.
