Took these a few days ago. These are all handheld. First time using this lens. Might have to start using a tripod or monopod......cheers...Don

5.......this one was shot wide open @ f/6.3. Seems fairly sharp. I think this lens is a very good bargain if one wants length at a low cost. Have to use it in good light or podded if dull outside...cheers...Don

Hi Don, these are really quite good. I get the gull and the crossbill, what's the bird in pics 4 & 5?

Also, any idea how far you were from the subjects when you took these? Just trying to get a feel for the zoom factor of that lens. Cheers, Dan

nice work, Don, especially handheld with a howitzer like the 200-500! The spotted towhee came out very nicely indeed! i think if i ever get something in that range, a Bushhawk will definitely be in order...

Way to go Don. Looks like you warmed right up to that Tammy. The Bushhawk may just be the way to go for you. It should be lighter and more manuverable than a tripod and more stable than a monopod. I have never tried one my self but I am sure impressed with what Roger can do with his. Have fun and post oftern.
