Re: Egrets with the 500mm Reflex. . .

Hey Jack - nice job with the egrets...love those big birds when they fly - they can look so ungainly at times, yet so graceful when soaring above.

Looks like that lens is being used just how it should - I played around with a 500mm F8 reflex as a swap with another Sony shooter, and found it was fine for shots in flight most of the time, and for most plain or normally lit and close backgrounds...as mentioned, it's only when you get the specular highlights and/or backgrounds that are well lit at just the right distance from the subject that the old donuts appear.
