I've been shooting the same lens for 17 years now, a 500 f4 AF-S - which helps to explain why I have a reasonable keeper rate. But the interesting rate has stayed at 1%. I'd like to think that is because my standards have gone up, but some days I'm dubious.

whew! was hoping you said tammy or siggy 500 zoom. lol. shoulda known it was pro glass. oh, well not now. still a great pic tho. I dunno about the keeper rate. I do mostly travel shots 2-3k is about avg for a week. once I rate them maybe 500 are 5 star. but the 4 star may be the one people like. or a 3. go figure.
