  • I am sure the Z6 or Z7 are great cameras, and capable of better focus.  I had chosen to stay with the D3s for its battery life.   Will have to wait-and-see what their future battery pack would be ...
  • Hi Bill, Good to hear from you.  Regarding the plane of focus.  I assume you meant line-of-sight.  If so, I sit in the vehicle with my eyes at about 2m above ground.  The head of the Jackal is ...
  • Hi Bill, I believe we exchanged correspondence before, remember, the subject on VR "on" or "off" when shutter speed was high (i.e. above 1/focal length sec.) when using the 200-400. The current ...
  • Hi Alex, It looks like we have a newcomer in this thread. The name is SkySpades. The individual has both the 200-500 and 200-400VR2 lens. I managed to get more shots this morning. Though the bird ...

  • Hello, Thank for your message. Strangely, I did not received a notice from DP Review, thus, the lateness of my reply.  Additionally, I have been away over the past 1-1/2 months. Responding to your ...
  • I agree with you.  My VR1 is very sharp to sharp even at f4.0 (depending on how you define it), thus, I am either lucky, or the "HOO--aah professional" reviewers (quite a few) are just "nonsense". ...
  • I have the VR1 version.  Bought it used on eBay in pristine condition in 2013.  I believe the original owner bought it in 2006 (from B&H - he gave me a copy of the invoice).   I used this lens ...
