  • Although I don't use it that much, every time I DO use it I love it! I bought mine 5 years ago for a little more than €300 and it is a lens that definitely has the 'wow' factor. It is heavy, but ...
  • the answer for that of course is the angle-viewfinder, the DR-5 (for D500 and D800 etc.) I use this a lot for my sea bird shots, you can sit on your knees and hold the camera very low without ...
  • Great pix, especially the Rainbow Bee-eater, beautiful bird, beautiful background! cheers, Frank
  • Nice pictures! And a good choice for birding, I am still a youngster (60+v;-)) but since I mostly hike, decded to go for this combination, although my body is the D800. Recently a birding friend ...

  • Well, maybe not ado for you this week, but for me these pictures are great, because I will never encounter any of these here in the Netherlands. The spoonbill pix are my favorites, they really look ...
  • Beautifull pictures Peter, very nice light, perfectly sharp, and all birds that I will never see here inthe Netherlands, great work! cheers, Frank
  • the subjects are great, but when looking at 100% the pictures are not very sharp and very noisy, I wonder why? Are these photo's shot in RAW or JPG? cheers, Frank
  • A very nice collection of bird pix, where the Rufous Whistler is the favorite for me. cheers, Frank

  • Replied in TC
