A day at the Zoo with the V2+FT-1+70-300VR

I spent the day at the Bronx Zoo with the kids 2 days ago and mostly used the Nikon V2 with the FT-1 adapter which allowed me to use the 70-300VR lens. The 2.7 multiplication factor gives me an effective 812mm equivalent lens. It's pretty sharp, all things considered. When I was photographing the Snow Leopard, who was behind a bush, at 15 frames/sec, the lady next to me asked me if I was a professional photographer. The rig and sound made it seem that I was. Needless to say those point and shooters couldn't get close enough.
