Re: Sooc shots of Osprey. Not sharp, Lots of noise

Hi Ellie.

I think Sherman is dead on with his remarks.  My main reason for replying is that I think you would struggle a lot with the 150-600.  I borrowed one from a friend and put it on my Canon.  I could not get a decent shot with it hand held.  It was just too heavy and unbalanced for me.  Even at 1/2000 ss blur was quite apparent.  Birds on a feeder 40 ft away were worse than with my 70-300 DO.  Also Canon a Canon 100-400 and it was manageable but still heavy.

That's why I decided to go to a lighter system than APCs.  Either a Sony RX10, Nikon Coolpix 950, Olympus EM5 or Panasonic G9 are my top contenders.  Have yet to try any of those yet.
