Excellent series Jack.I've always dismissed the 500mm reflex because of the infamous "doughnut bokeh",but your images have definitely changed my mind.Even though a few of your images have foliage in the background,I can only see a hint of the doughnut bokeh.And that's only in one of images.

Great job!Thanks for sharing your pics.

Robert,

The donut issue happens so infrequently that we never worry about.  It has showed up in maybe 1-5% of the shots.  We still have a way to go on technique with this lens, but it gives that 750mm of reach in a light/small package that can be handheld . . . . the trade offs sure seem like a good deal to us.

Thanks very much for looking and the kind comments.

Jack
