  • 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 ...

  • when I switched from D7100 to D800 more than a year ago I was afraid I would loose reach, but the work shown by my fellow bird photographers who all used FX bodies convinced me to go FX. And I ...
  • Replied in Flamingos
    These flamingos are exceptonally colourfull, the ones that I sometimes see are only slightly colored, more pinky. Maybe you should try to lower yourself nexttime because most of the pix seem to be ...
  • 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 Great Egret
    Very elegant bird, beautiful pose. The light is a bit tricky here, the neck seems to have captured max. light. Another thing is that the bird is flying away from us, it's always nicer when they ...
  • A common bird in the Netherlands, so a challenge to photograph them well....:-D Me sitting in the water, camera close to the water with angle-finder, hand-held. cheers, Frank

  • Replied in TC
    I had exactly the same experience and found the noise so frightening that I never used it again. Fortunately I still had the the non-DGX version of the Kenko 1.4 PRO 300 and this one worked ...
  • I use my 300f/4 E PF VR with the 1.4 and the 1.7 TC's and can share with you my experiences. My lens + TC is attached to the D800 body, I mainly shoot birds but also the little critters like ...
  • I do not agree with that, the difference between 420 and 500mm is very small, basically bird photographers always want more mm's, but even 800mm is still not satisfying if you can not get close ...
