Is this a Griffon Vulture? FA* 300 F4.5
7 months ago

Hi guys,

I shot this bird in haste with the FA* 300 F4.5 lens in the south of France whilst camping in a field.  Is this a Griffon Vulture or is it some type of eagle? I have found a softening of the image using UV filters with this lens , with this shot I didn't have time to take off the filter so it's not as sharp as it could have been. ( I'm now not going to put one on anymore) the filter by the way was a Hoya HMC UV, which should be good but that's two types of filters I've tried and both have caused significant softening.
