I really like all these shots; especially the deer! Great catch with the tongue! I love the vistas also; which one usually wouldn't associate with a 400 lens! Very well done!

I wouldn't laugh at these fine images just because they're taken with an istD. You've got a good combo there and even better you've got a good eye!

Thanks all

As the 400 lens is hefty I sit for long periods of time waiting for a good image to appear. I do have the matching multiplier but I seem to have a hard time with the focus using it.

Is this a straight SMC-A 400/2.8 or the A*. Version., note there is already a thread for the A* version in the archives

It is an A*

The lens sample pictures post you refer to is an older review with a old post message warning of not posting to it. If this is not the case I will remove the post if it violates any rules here.

Please try to post in the old A* thread. The index is set up to work with one thread per lens. I will talk to Adam about old thread warnings in the archive
