A pointless test given the distance and atmospheric disturbance over that sort of distance.

That actually answers my question. I've never shot anything at that distance or with such a long lens, so didn't know what to expect. Thanks.

Despite the urky atmosphere that crane on the left has good detail, still air would see it quite sharp indeed. I would hazard that your result looks better than I could get at 2 miles with my Oly 75-300mm where I would probably be using f/8 to try and find its sweet spot.

The 75-300 was to be my next step if the 300 4.5 failed.

Is that 300/4.5 heavy or awkward to use?

Heavy and awkward? Compared to the 17 1.8 that was the only other lens I had with me, yes.
