game changer

This lens is a game changer for me. I like taking long walks shooting birds in flight. No other lens out there provides this magnification in this weight range. I use it with the D850, Z7 and Z50 (for more stationary subjects, like birds in nest). This is my first "exotic" lens. Most images are blurry for one reason or another, usually because I'm tracking very erratic birds. But there are plenty in focus and those ones are awesome! I suspect there is something off about the VR sport mode, which I have not really tested. I have experimented with the VR normal mode, and that seems to work just fine. Loving the images I get with this lens. It's the only glass I use now.
