Nikon 500mm f/4 questions...
Feb 21, 2013

I'm renting a 500 f/4 and downloaded the users manual but still have a few questions.

1) I'm using a tripod with the Manfrotto gimbal head. Do I still turn on the VR and set it to "Tripod" mode for most shooting of birds in flight and stationary birds ?

2) Do I set the Memory Recall switch to AF-ON for most shooting ?

3) I'm assuming the lens hood should be used at all times for best IQ  ?

Any other advice for using this fine lens with a D300s without a TC would be appreciated.

Nikon D300S
