I prefer stocking my subjects.


Just kidding of course.


It would be pretty cool to own a beast like your 200mm to 500mm.  Have fun shooting in detail what is a dot on most of our cameras.

I'm digging that kestrel and GBH in flight.
Looks like you've got a keeper!

I'm super pleased with the sharpness in the kestrel photo, having nice light and a cooperative subject doesn't hurt either.

I'm also impressed with how slow I can hand hold. I'm still shooting at at least 1/500 to 1/1000 (out of long habit) but I've done a few test shots at 1/50 and 500mm and they're still sharp. It's a little like discovering that beer is good for you, or that eating too much doesn't make you fat.
