So glad I had the DA*300 with me today to make up for the disappointing fault in the Tamron 17-50.

Thanks Bruce! I'm going to have to work out more so I can hold that beast of a lens steady...

Thank you! They are gorgeous. FWIW it's much harder to hold the DA*300 steady in portrait than landscape. Brilliant lens, but I am really feeling the weight of it!

Thanks Charlie! I wish I could have got the DA*300 ages ago.

Thanks! Finding them where I live isn't too hard. Getting close enough takes time and luck, since I don't have enough time to resort to using hides.
