You're too kind to say that BD - unfortunately I couldn't live up to your billing but I did attach the Tamron 500 BB and go straight into the garden to see what was around - it was nearing dusk here at that time (I think close to 1600) so these have had quite a bit of noise reduction and cropping of between 1/2 and 1/4 original, of course. Sorry it's taken me a few days to PP them !

Hope you don't mind me putting these into your thread BD - they are not worthy of their own but maybe can make a contribution here ?

All handheld 1600 ISO (maybe 800 for the wagtail) and of course MF at fixed f8.

1. Missed focus on his/her head but nice detail in the body
2. Lots of NR killed this one (not the bird !)
3. Again missed focus - those Wagtails move so fast and unpredictably !

Spot on focus on the body of that first one. This in itself should tell you and I for that matter that the lens is capable of sharp photos. Wait till you get some good sunlight and then you'll be able to get that spot on focus on all the shots. Those that have never used a long focal length lens just do not know how hard it is at f/8 to get that sharp focus. I do know and can appreciate it when others get it.
