Hi alecal, about the only thing that seems to bother me is some times it wants to focus on some thing other than what I am trying to focus on. I am trying to get the eyes and it wants the nose or ear. What I do is focus it on some thing else close by and then go back to what I want and if that doesn't work, yesterday I tried manual focus and that worked just fine. Thanks for looking and for commenting.

As far as positives, I am a happy camper with the wildlife set up I am using at this time.

As far as I know the lens has NO vibration reduction. Until last week what I did is try to find something ( fence post, rock, limb or etc. ) to rest my camera on. My K10D has the vibration thing built in. Starting last week I use a BushHawk and that IMHO is a major tool that anybody that is into moving or in flight should consider.

Here is a link to a review I wrote about it with photos.

I hope this information helps you out.

Hey Wacky.....Great shots. I have a Tamron 200-500mm lens that if I don't want to bring out the tripod I find using the Bogen Pod bag works great to help the vibration when balancing on a car door/window, fence post etc........

Love woody.

Hi Mandy, sounds like a real nice set up to me. Since I got my BushHawk I catch myself not looking for something to set it on. I need to work on this new lazy habit I am getting. Something to help steady everything is a good idea.
