    Must take some patience ? They usually hit the feeder and run... only the odd bird will stick around long enough to crack and eat a sunflower seed.

    Don,

    Great shot. I guess I need to move up to the brighter 50-200 from the 70-300 if I want to get above 1/200th. I rented a 50-200 for a week and decided I did not really want to carry it around all the time. Still the extra speed is nice on occasion. I took it to Road Atlanta for Petit LeMans. Close enough to the cars there that I didn't miss the extra mm on the telephoto.

    Thanks,

    What you need to do is carry around a four pound Bigma for a while, then the 50-200 will seem small

    Dennis those are real nice, the first one has the tell tale rings of a mirror
    lens. I do not mind them except the ones on the neck. Great colors in these
    too. I did not know you had this lens.

    My unsharp contributution

    In my back yard were a few Red-Wings, I grabbed my camera and they
    started to take off. Not having time to adjust settings this is what I got.

    Thanks, Rich. You're right about the first. I'll try to remove the rings in front of the neck.
    I have had this lens for about a month, but due to the bad weather, I haven't had the time to test it. Yesterday the weather cleared up and I had a bit more time, so I took some photos. So far, I like the lens. As long as I shoot from a tripod, the results are quite sharp. It's a bit tough to focus it, since it is fixed at f/8 and is as dark as f/11 (T/11) due to the mirror mechanism.

    Really like your shot, Rich. Great colours and it's a very dynamic picture.
