These are really fine - great action in #3 (although focus looks a little off), and wonderful detail in #2.

I too find the manual lenses a bit tricky sometimes. But autofocus often gets fooled by twigs and other "stuff," which won't fool manual focus... For example, in #1 my autufocus lens would probably lock in on the clump of grass in front of the bird.

Hey Hans,
I love #2. Good job with the manual lens, I know just what you're dealing with!
