Simple, clean, uncluttered, direct and technically spot on - it can't get much better than that.

I final got out for some photography today, it's been about three months due to a move.

Tried out the 1.4TC with the 500. Too bad I cut of the butt on the second one.

Yeah, he doesn't seem too happy about it either ;~) Good work--white birds on a bright day is a challenge.

Thanks Dave. Overall I feel focus with the 500/4.5 was marginal or perhaps it was my technique. For these shot I used a Molar Bean Bag mounted in my car.
Looking forward to trying the 1.4 with the 300/4 lens, hoping for a hand-holdable 400

dsport,

As a lens review it looks like a 10 for the DA 560.

That last image is awesome.

Very Funny! I got almost the same pic a while ago while trying the HDTC on the 250-600/5.6 !

Do I see a photographer in the reflection in the eye? - I think I do!
