Hello Kal
Couple of shots here as you asked yesterday.
Not the greatest shots, taken from my back yard.
The tower is about 500 mts away.
First is shot taken at 300mm
Second is 300mm with 1.4 TC attached. (Kenko 1.4 TC)
Hope this helps . Cheers........ Bruce.

I have been weighing up the Sigma 50-500 and the 135-400.
How do you find the latter. Is the quality it produces up to your expectations.
What is it like at the 400mm end. Hows the sharpness. After all it fits a bit better into the budget rather than the 50-500.
Thanks a lot.... Bruce.
Hi Bruce,
Other than the lens creep discussed earlier, and the weight, I find little wrong with this lens. Some will argue softness at the long end, but I don't hink thats unique to the 135-400.
New ones have a lens lock button.
Here is a link to my photobucket album. The surfing shots are all with the 135-400 as is the patchwork quilt landscape.
Cheers
Grant

I thought I would add this extra shot for you to give you an idea of the distance of the shots posted.
This was taken with same lens at 70mm. Dont mind the rubbish in photo, the dark area at top is my Patio roof but couldn't exclude it all and stay on 70mm.
Regards....Bruce.

Thanks Bruce for taking the time....looks like it does pretty good job of getting closer and still sharp. Does the brand of the TC matter a lot? I don't know if Tamron offers one. Also appreciate your adding the 70 mm shot for comparision. I've posted my very first shots. Please do comment when you get a chance.

No worries Kal,pleasure to help.
I like your photos, the sharpness is great and very good exposure. Well done.
Only one suggestion. try andfill your frame with your subject a bit more and dont have too much open space around your main subject. FWIW.
Regarding the TC I would not like to commit on that one, as I haven't had experience with other brands to know. I suggest you put a seperate post in and query what brands what be best to aim for. I would be interested in the responses myself.

Cheers and all the best with your photo efforts........ Bruce.

Hi Glenn
You say you could possibly recognise me from Brunswick Hds. Not me mate, haven't been there for years (mores the pity), but I do have an identical twin brother who travels a bit. Could be a coincidence.
Love those 2 shots, particularly the lizard. Well done.
