D300 does beach bird duty
5

On a recent trip, we visited a few beaches. The sun was bright, and I decided to leave my Sony in the bag and play instead with the Dinosaur300 and my even older 80-200 f2.8 AF lens. There was ample bird activity, so I figured I would try some bird shots (I am not a birder).

Here are some samples of what it yielded:

On balance, I think the combo did pretty well. Things fall apart quickly for the old D300 when light levels drop, but for this application, I think it did quite well. I shoot mostly Sony, but do really enjoy the handling of the D300, even if it is a bit tank-ish (especially with the monstrous 80-200 parked on board).
