GORGEOUS! But how did you get the camera to "read" the Nikon lens  in the EXIF?

I think you'll be disappointed with the Tokina. I had a Tamron 60-300 that was never sharp. I ended up buying a Nikon 300mm ED f4.5 for $500 and am very happy with it. You will need to come to terms with focussing though, especially with wildlife shots.

All the best,
