My first birding ever
Lens: Tair 3S 300mm/4,5 Camera: K-30 ISO: 400 Aperture: F4.5 
Posted By: Ivan_M, 12-09-2012, 10:58 AM

I got a Tair 3S "photosniper" set from my father in law and I was eager to shot some birds as the longest focal range I had till now was around 100mm. And the results are very pleasing to me, I had a lot of fun, because the weather was very nice and I spotted a lot of birds. All of them was shot around my home, so they are used to see people and I managed to get pretty close. The lens is manual focus, but it is very convenient to work with and even the weight of 2 kg is nothing that bothers me. These are the best I managed:

Yea, I know it is just a common Sparrow, but I'm so happy that I have to share it. Thanks for any comments

I've been lusting after a Fotosniper for a while now, but I know if I managed to get one the first time I went out to use it I'd probably have half the neighborhood calling 911 on me.

Nice shots!

Thank you! I have complete set with metal case, filters, hood, lens caps, screwdrivers... Everything in very good condition, but there is some dust in the lens that is visible in pictures so I will probably try to clean it
The handle with trigger is pretty useless as it was of course designed for Zenit, so I'm using it as a sole lens, but I found a pistol hand grip that has a wired shutter release so I will probably buy that.
