thanks for that... but how do you manage to hand hold the 500F4...??? I'm a big bloke 200lb 6ft.. and do not find it comfortable on a 5 mile hiike having that combo slung over my shoulder...

The Canon FD 500 F/4.5L weighs in at under 2.5Kg. The MDF, Melamine and ply sheets I carry all day at work makes 2.5Kg seem very light let alone the finished units.

Just got back from a 6 hr shoot using the 500, the 800 stayed in the car. Hand held at 1/3200 -1/4000 , ISO 200, lens wide open. Manual focus of course. Good BIF's today as well along the shore line. Cormorants, Lapwings, Herons, hey if you get a chance to get to NZ, let me know.

All the best.

Danny.
