draft law regulating the use of long lenses by subjecting them to a holding authorization, just like firearms !
Wow! Never thought a lens would be considered the same as a firearm!

Well, I guess you could bash someone's head in with a 400/2.8 easily enough. Pretty expensive club, though.

I thought that's what all those long T-mount pre-set lenses were for.

Translation: Ridicule does not kill : Following the publication of "stolen photos" in the courtyard of the Elysee,
a deputy has filed a draft law regulating the use of long lenses by subjecting them to a holding authorization,
just like firearms !
Don't you have that gun stock that attaches to your camera? Might be a good time to start carrying it.

I'm finding that manual focus with the F*300 gives me better control on sharpness when shooting into branches.

Thanks Travis, this shutter speed is possible when the kingfisher is looking for fish.
Slow shutter speed is also applicable to birds like pittas and rock thrush, I've ever shot at 1sec shutter speed for rock thrush.

Impressive indeed.

Here, I was thinking that 1/1000 was too slow.

Thanks r0ckstarr, I hate high iso, will try the best shutter speed and take advantge of these birds' behaviour.
However slow speed will definitely don't work on birds eg woodpeckers, wagtail etc, the wagtail will wag it's tail non stop and the wp also peck non-stop, lol
