B&H offering free shipping to Australia if spending over $149 USD
Posted By: kreuzn, 01-24-2016, 12:27 AM

Just noticed this free shipping offer, which they say is for celebrating Australia Day. Free shipping is always good when you can get it :-)

Tripod: no real world use yet, but it seems pretty solid until fully extended. The legs are very adjustable, and the extendable column can be removed for ground level shots. The ball head is excellent - well engineered controls and rock solid when locked. I have no concerns about using it with the 55-300

Lens: first impressions at the long end (which is all I care about) can be seen HERE
For the record, maximum aperture is f/4.0 until 100mm, then f/4.5 until 200mm, then f/5.6 until 280mm.

Thanks for the information Sandy, much appreciated

the crop on that image from the 300mm seems not too bad.
