P-51D Mustang: The reason I bought the DA* 60-250mm
Posted By: kcmadr, 08-09-2009, 12:14 AM

I bought the DA* 60-250mm to replace my aging 80-320mm and so far it's done everything I wanted which is make my pictures look a lot better!!! See my gallery photos for technical details of the shot.

This plane is extremely elegant.

Nice capture.

Very nice aircraft. Almost as cool as a Spitfire.

Nice shots! I've got my eye on the DA 55-300mm. I like to do a lot of Boat, and Auto Racing with the occasional Warbird thrown in when they show up in my area. I did get some the other day when 4 WWII warbirds showed up in South Dayton. They had a B-17G, B-24J, F4U Corsair, and a TP-51C. I did manage a few good shots. Still working on the aeriel stuff though.
