Last Monday I had the day off and the weather was nice. What could then be better than to go to the somewhat near zoo with only Nordic species to try the F* 300mm for some real shots?I brought the whole bag, but it was so fun using the 300 I didn't change lenses the whole day.

First a portrait of a Great Grey Owl, or Lapland Owl as it's also called:

As I mentioned in my post to Tom, tremendous detail from these 300 mm primes. I'd be interested to know if anyone has a comparison of this genre of lenses with the DA*300 f/4?

You've picked great subjects and composed them very well to not only show the merits of the lens but also your eye as a great photographer! BTW, the first picture of the owl looks much like the Barred owl found in North America. Very nice job!

Wonderful shots! How do you like having the AF? I sometimes regret not bidding just a bit more on the one FA I tried to buy. On the other hand, I still love my smaller, lighter A*300 and don't mind manual focus most of the time.

Your pictures are very nice,and I especially lovethe owls.

Great images, I would hate to have to fit that Great Grey Owl with glasses.
