Nice shot. You have serious collecting mojo to have a 500/4.5.

Cool lens, nice shot!

With that thing, can you see @monochrome's house from your place?

That is better than many can get from that lens. You must be good with it.

I am certainly not going to answer that question on a public forum!

You know what they say, "Sometimes even a blind squirrel can find an acorn."

Man - can any of you guys with the 500mm give out your address so I can come burgle you??

No????

Shucks.

Beautiful shots here, guys - your tripods must be great gear just by themselves!

Thanks, but I think a plane ticket from Oz to the USA would cost more than the lens.

I use an old (free) Velbon Videomate tripod... since what I shoot is generally moving - or fidgeting - I usually have to keep the shutter speed up a bit, so I don't need the ultimate rock-steady tripod.


It's a challenging lens to use for sure, but when you get it right there is certainly a feeling of accomplishment.
