So I bought the 150-450. The flexibility of having a zoom cannot be overstated. This sub-adult Leopard was shot at Kabini Tiger Reserve in South-India. It was far, really far. The image is a crop.

That's a nice sharp image of the Tiger. Looks sad though. We are lucky to have 82 odd tigers in this reserve. Good bio-diversity as well - grasslands, spotted deer, lakes, water-bodies, Sambar (large Indian deer) and a lot of leopards.

The friend who was with me was shooting Nik810 with the 200-500 and damn, world of difference .

But I thought - only missing the lens, can't be the K5.

Its the Kabini Tiger reserve in Karnataka@INDIA. Very much in the wild.

We were across the lake separated a good 50m or so. Interesting thing, these are a family of three adult cubs about 18months old. The mother was behind the bush but never came out. The cubs would keep nervously looking at her, maybe she was making calls, but we never heard her.

That single was the male fellow, the other two are females.

I had a bad experience with 1.7x and sold it. On the A*300, while I will get the reach, the 1.7x converter will not help with the resolution at the distance, which is why I thought the 150-450 might do a better job. Does that make any sense ?

Fred, good point you made there, the lens is the A*300@f4.

Gaweidert, I've seen the same purple fringing especially with an early morning sun. How is the 150-450 in terms of picking up objects at a distance, something the 300 starts failing at really long distances ?

Thanks for the advise guys. Positive so far.

The A*300 is a beautiful lens. I've enjoyed it a lot. I'm trying to get a little more reach, thats why the 150-450. Question is, will this lens perform at 450mm, atleast as good as the 300mm is at the shorter distances ?

Hi,

I've been a user of the A* 300mm for a while with very satisfying results, both in IQ and color. Recently though the drawbacks when it comes to distance is quite clear. I'm thinking of investing in the 150-450 and wanted advise on whether the results will improve in any way.

Wildlife in India is rarely less than 50ft away and 150-300 ft is the average. The 300mm has done a stellar job upto around 150ft but not more.

Beyond that, the images don't retain the sharpness as you zoom in. Is this better with the 150-450 - better coating, resolution ? I'm using the K5 and expect to continue with the same body.

Any advise or info would be helpful. Thanks.
