Try increasing the saturation on the second one a little and maybe a little bit more contrast.

They're both nice as there are though.

Thanks E.B.

Hi smac, I saw your post on the Panasonic page when I started out with an FZ20. I just started using a DSLR the past couple of months.

Nikon D-70s with Nikon 300mm f4 lens

That's interesting because I just bought a D70s and I am struggling with what lens to get. How do you like the 300mm f/4? Looks like it's doing a pretty good job for you.¬* Do you miss having a zoom range?¬* I was thinking about getting the 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 myself.¬* What have you heard? Any tips?¬* These decisions are driving me nuts.¬* ¬* ¬*¬* ¬*Steve¬*¬*¬*[img]/forums/images/emoticons/bash.gif[/img]¬*

I like the 300mm f4 with the 1.4x comverter because you still have f5.6 with af-s focusing which is a bit faster than the camera drive on the 80-400. With the 1.5 factor the focal length is 630mm just a little less than the FZ with the 1.7x converter. I tried the 80-400 and like the VR but decided on the 300. The 300 has a $200.00 rebate now. Hope this helps.

I can't see much more you could do for that Nuthatch shot. It looks great to me.

I like them. If they can be improved, it's beyond my PP abilities to do it.
