Re: Nikkor 1000mm F11

To be honest - and I'm sure you wouldn't expect less - these prove what I've said before. Unless fitted to an IBIS body the use of anything over 105mm handheld or 400mm tripod mounted seems to be pretty much a waste of time. I tried my Sigma 50-500mm mounted via tripod foot and fitted to my Fuji XP1/XT1 and I found it impossible to focus even using the LCD because of vibration. Even 30 secs after last touched the setup I could see slight movement in the LCD. A fast shutter speed might counter slight movement when taking the picture by remote but you still can't focus properly in the first place.
