Re: Ray, a 4" bird at....

10 mtrs is asking a lot, particularly when they move so fast as in no warning  .  I guess my days of handholding the lens for birds are over.  I need to work on using a mono or start using the Sidekick again

Probably more me than the camera or lens but I really need to fine tune a couple of lenses on the D7100 anyway.

Just talking to a guy about selling my 500vr and just using the 300 2.8 and 80-400 afs... shooting birds is just for enjoyment and I've never put in the effort to get better .  The KF shots would have been with the 500vr from a W200

Cheers,
