Birds in Flight (NX1 FW1.20 with 50-150mm f/2.8 S)

I can't wait to get a 300mm f/2.8, wasn't interested in it until I started this style of shooting. These were all shot at 150mm and cropped heavily, it was bright so went with f/4. One was a bit out of focus/blurred, but I liked the composition so included it. It seems improved, mostly being able to have much greater flexibility on initial size of focus point in CAF (old version only allowed two sizes, new version allows many sizes for CAF start point). Once CAF is started I think it will track anywhere in the frame.

I still hate how fast JPEGs can fill a memory card at 15 fps, easily shot another 2000 shots today :S  I think I need bigger memory cards.

Focus limiter on 50-150mm is great, I mainly only use it set full range or in range of 5m to infinity or so. This greatly improves focus speed and reduces chance of it deciding to hunt up close.

blurred, but I loved the wings on this one

I was shooting from the bridge in the middle where my car is parked.
