It was a jibe at me since I posted about my 2 pound 2 inch thick porterhouse steak we had for dinner last week in another thread. I went vegetarian for about two years, then I found out I still loved prime rib and Porterhouse steaks a lot!

It is a fish but with a bit of creative cropping it can be "not so fishy." :lol::lol: Still a super fun lens to take out and shoot with. I love mine.

I hand hold my 120-400 when shooting but at 4 pounds, it does get to be a bit of exercise to hold up when shooting birds in the woods. I can see how the OS in the viewfinder or in LV could help when the tiniest movement can take you off target at 400mm on a smaller bird.

Not all of us are youngsters like you Ian! I suspect my eldest son is a lot closer to your age than you are to mine! :D

The Auto Sears F2/Rikenon F2 is actually a fun manual lens and is a pretty sharp lens if in good shape. They can all be fun if you let them. If they are duds, just practice taking them apart or something!

Prices on good FA 300 4.5s are closer to 800 USD with shipping than the 650 or so they were this time last year on Fleabay though. Since I sold mine I have been tracking them to see what is happening price wise. And they are trending up. (Clean copies without fungus and massive exterior scarring.)

IBIS helps a lot if the bird is not flying or hopping back and forth frantically. Sigma 120-400 @350mm F/8 1/500s, hand held, heavy crop. I normally get best results with this lens at F/9 but every lens is different in usage.

Saw that KEH had a few for sale and I thought that they were pretty cool looking, especially the pop up flash design. I suspect that the flash pop up is one of those things where your mileage may vary in how cool you think it is.

That is a good reason for change and the XT3 looks like a pretty amazing bit of kit. Buying and selling here has been nothing but great for me here. I think the approbation if you did someone wrong would mean you will never get your site supporter fees back from selling gear.
