Thanks for looking. C & C Welcome. Hope you like them. The 500mm II is an absolute gem of a lens, relatively light, super sharp, great colors, IS is fantastic & IQ is awesome even with TC IIIs.

Cheers

Awesome pictures, and very sweet and also funny.

Great set!  Did you use something like Lenscoat to hide your white-color lens?  They seem stared at you

Hi Thanks for your comments. I am a hobbyist, but do intend to sell/market them once I am confidant of my work!

Great shots! I'm amazed at that first shot being 1/40s shutter speed. IS is working great there!
