Re: Seeking ways of tracking birds in flight with 500mm lens

It is interesting.  What is wrong lens scale, though.  If we have perfect panning, there is a long focal length where things don't work well anyway.  Is this because of the compression effect of the background or what ?

That's an interesting observation! The way you put it, it makes sense.
