Re: First day with 70-300mm CX VR in Florida (w/V3)

hello Bibi0012, glad you like the photos. It is a very nice lens.

What I can not believe is how "competitive" a V3+70-300mm cx vr is to larger much much more expensive systems, it good light , that is. Sometimes is just impossible to carry a DSLR w/500mm or worse a 800mm Nikkor (if I would be able to afford it).

I was dreaming about the 800mm Nikkor, but the price is prohibitive. I own the 300-800mm Sigma but that lens is "car driven" because of weight and size, 800mm is a perfect focal length for small birds and scary animals. I almost died carrying the 300-800mm to the jungles of Peten in Guatemala, I vowed never again.

Its only money, you can not take it with you when you die.
