Sigma 100-400 with Nikon D750

I have been working with this lens a lot.  First tried it on the DX Nikon D7200.  Thought the DX extra reach would help with better focused photos.  I wasn't happy with most all of them.  I was pushing ISO up too high and getting lots of noise.

So today I put the lens on my D750, set  Auto ISO to 800 MAX,  minimum shutter speed at 1/2000, and kept it in Aperture Priority.  I used the Sigma dock to update the firmware, but did not change any of the focus numbers.  I am pleased with this improvement.  I also put a collar on the lens, backed by some gaffer tape, and used it on my good monopod, which helped me handle the camera and lens better than me trying handheld.

1/2000, ISO 450, f/6.3

1/2000, ISO 220, f/5.6
