  • Now the questions: (1) Do you h DFA 150-450 at apertures below f/8? (2) Is DFA 150-450 optically superior to the Sigmas 150-500 OS and 50-500 OS when they are ...
  • Sorry I've been MIA here Ron. I appreciate your explanation of how the lens and TC work together and it's great to see the results in birds (even if they are starlings). They look pretty darn good ...
  • Awesome set, Mike! In-person, complete with drumming it must have made for an extraordinary experience! You did great capturing the colors and details of their costuming and in many cases, the ...
  • Seed (and corn) pigs, eh? Looks like you're well on your way with the blind. Who says you need camo clothing... Thanks for posting.
  • Glad your lens is back in good working order; was that one sent to KEH? I like the deer portrait, but I'm achin' to see the top of the antlers... Happy shootin'; hope you get many more ops with him. ...
  • Well this whole dang thread is interesting! You started it off in style, Daryl! I like the pics but I appreciate the first one especially--nice perspective as Jim noted. Thanks for posting.
  • Enjoyable for you maybe, Man. Doesn't look like the models were enjoying it much...but we can't hold you responsible for that... Thanks for posting.

    Life, lemonade and the pursuit of happiness, eh Greyser? Good save from some difficult circumstances. Probably no mistaking them for anything else in silhouette is there? Thanks for posting.
  • Absolutely compelling! Beautiful light showcasing those landscapes. Well worth the trip, Daryl! Thanks for posting.
  • Good eye and creatively captured Steeve. I too think the B & W adds value here. (Couldn't escape the irony of having to click 'Reply to Thread' when posting this :-) -- one more dimension of the ...
  • Beautiful image, LPA. Would like it just a wee bit better if the kingfisher was not so centered, but that is my only nit-pik. I've not seen one of these kingfishers before; thanks for posting.
  • Replied in Monarchs
    Nice set, Mark, captured with nice light and colors. They look especially nice on the thistle (though I think it can somewhat 'take over' a field). Interesting observation on how they change with ...
  • So the TC is giving you AF capability on a MF lens? That's pretty cool Ron! How would you characterize the time to acquire focus? These look very good; hopefully you'll get favorable response for ...
  • Nice set, Mike! When the sun lights 'em up and we can see all that fantastic patterning on their feathers, it's just a treat. Of course, their agility when airborne is fun to see too, as your pics ...
  • Replied in Jim
    Thanks Jim. I'm not sure who was more surprised at the cardinal sighting--me or it. I had been shooting the HBs, knowing their time here this season was coming to a close, when the cardinal caught ...
  • Replied in Arijit
    Thanks Arijit--great idea! I've got a few things in the way of photography right now, but I will try that and hope to re-post 'shortly'. Thanks for the suggestion.
  • Multiple challenges getting, posting and viewing photos the last week but here's a few more taken with the K3 and 150-450. I continue to be impressed with this lens. The focus limiter works great ...
  • Great set and informative review of the 150-450. Your pre-planning and good weather combined with good skills really paid off. Wonderful captures of the airshow action in some tough lighting ...
