Rupert, any chance you can leave me those lenses in your will? I promise to shoot lots of squirrels with them.

Within the next few weeks I am going to buy a new long lens, either the newest Sigma 150-500 HSM IS....if I can find one...or the Pentax.
And of course you may want to check with Mrs. Rupert about that purchase!!
Also: is Otis willing to pose in front of such big glass ?

Not likely Norm...but maybe I will leave you something in my will....I'm 70 and won't be around forever. My Mom is 88 and in great health, so you probably won't have to wait more than another 20 years!

Check with Mrs Rupert before I rob her brokerage account? Not hardly! She thinks those big withdrawals are "adviser fees". The day I discovered her password was one of the luckiest days of my life! ...of course, if I ever get caught, it will be a short life.....but it will make old Norm happy!

Otis loves big glass, it makes him feel even more important...if that is even possible! He refuses to pose for my Toy Cameras, saying they are for "losers".......which is why he says I own them!

Regards!

Thanks if you have done that already !
What is the process for uploading there from my PC?

With DPReview it is easy, I just identify the folder. But there doesn't appear to be the same option here.

Reply to the thread. [Go Advanced] if you aren't there already. On the top row of icons, just to the right of the smiley, click the paper clip. You then get the photo upload browser to attach photos directly from your computer.

Also let us know your thoughts - photos are one aspect, we'd love to hear your thoughts on the focus speed, the handling, your views of it vs the DA*300 and teleconverter, etc. I see that you've mentioned that it is easier to track with than the DA*300 and the buttons are great, but any other thoughts?

Thanks!

Ditto! I'd also like to know the sharpness wide open at 450mm. Most of what I shoot would be at that range, so that is very important to me.

@Barry:

I think there is a complete instruction in this sub-Forum. My work host blocks the actual Forum because the word 'photo' is in the thread.

Thanks for that!

I've posted some photos I took at Oulton Park motor circuit, UK.

(I would have liked them to be larger, to show more detail).

It could also simply have been the Adorama web manager testing the cart link after publishing. For an expensive item, you want to be sure the cart link works OK.

But now it says:
