Bruce, Kjell and Tom, very nice shots.

Bruce, your imageis very sharp but try adjusting the levels on your shot and the gull's image will really "pop".

Kjell, I like the sense of motion with the blurred wingtips, shot at 1200mm!!!!

Tom, is that a few signs of a dirty sensor I see in your shot? Notice a couple of dark circles below the gulland a little trail in the upper left. That 200mm f2.8 is very sharp the detail around the eye is awesome, I will need to practice more to get the gull in constant flight like that.

Bruce, hope you don't mind this edit, a little crude on the contrastbut only took a moment since I just used the auto levels feature in PS Elements, I erased the file from my drive as soon as it was uploaded, and will remove it if you want. I find that contrast is typically better with my (decidedly modest) FA lenses than with most of my earlier glass (which, except for the 50mm f1.7 M lens, is also very modest).

Yep, there were others not posted. With the 2X tc the effective aperture is 11, no DOF to count on. Why do I like digital and the "delete" button?

My bird lens is a little more modest, this picture doesn't show the collapsible rubber lens hood:



Let's bring on the gulls guys!

I really like the lens but just so you don't think all the shots are presentable, here is one that is just a hairs breath away from being a great sharp shot.

Sensor did have dust on it, I will clean it later today.

So close and yet so far... What an amazing shot it would have been, even with the gull unsharp it is impressive. This summer I hope to get some images of terns fishing, if you haven't seen it they just suddenly drop from the sky like stones and come up with a fish (which is immediately stolen by a gull so they have to do it again).

I wouldn't want to lug it around but very cool! It is hard to find a tripod heavy enough for that much glass.
