Heres a pic of a tree branch I took it was pretty far I am very impressed with the lens. So what do you think?

I love the one with the tree branch. I don't know what it is about the flower one but it makes mefeel like I need to put my glasses on. Something about the focus I guess.

The H5 and TC are very good for birds but you do need good light (and sometmes higher ISO) in order to get a fast enough shutter speed to avoid blurry pictures. i ofter use the timer and burst mode. Our friendly garden robin is shown below (from about 20 feet through a window).

I got just the opposite from another site saying flowers were good and branch was too blurry in background. First day with it and only had a few hrs till it got dark so I hope today is better thanks for the comments please keep them coming.

Thanks for the compliment, Wirraway - I noticed that you are from N Queensland. We were in Australia before Xmas for the first time. From the little bits we saw of such a huge country, you live in a beautiful area. We had 4 days in Cairns and loved it, but its probably too commercialised for you.

I lived in Cairns for a year back in 1993 and then it was just about perfect, now with the advent of low cost airlines Virgin Blue & Jetstar people can fly from Sydney and Melbourne for about A$120 and have bought up real estate like you would not believe, the population has increased by 50% since I lived there.

It is a pity you had only 4 days there, as there are great places to visit and photographin which 4 days is insufficent, also Nov-Feb is the time not to visit Far North Queensland as it is the wet season and the humidity is near unbearable, my wife and I go south or to Asia to escape it.

I have now lived in Townsville (3 hours south of Cairns) for 2 years and find it very laid back after spending the last 12 years in Brisbane, it averages over 300 days of sunshine a year and is great from March-November and then you need aircon for 4 months.

Townsville looking acrossto Magnetic Island:

We stayed for a week in Surfer's Paradise and yes, it was very busy with the schoolies! Our relatives in south Adelaide were watching TV coverage to see if we were in any of the rowdy scenes!

We paid $15 each to go in a lift to the 78th floor of Q1 but the view wasn't bad, and the beach isn't tiny either.
