    Nice Osprey shot Joel, I'm glad you grabbed the 2000th post to this thread, very fitting honour and a great shot as always.


    I'll add another lorikeet to move it towards the 3000.





    Thanks for viewing.

    @ W349, Thank You! I think I had IS off since I was shooting at fairly high shutter-speeds. I really like the composition on your 2nd shot. It

    Joel, I'm still not sure if I want a 400mm (sports), 500mm or 600mm. Right now 300mm is my longest bare lens.


    Here's a few from today with the bare 300mm.





    1D-MKIV: 300mm f/2.8L IS F/6.3 1/1000sec. ISO 400 CPL.














































    I would hope to get results like this with a bare 500mm or 600mm, because the 2X is not good enough for BIF or fast action. I do think the 1.4X extender is acceptable for action shots, and the 2X is acceptable for static shots. I'm a little concerned that the 600mm might be too narrow of a field of view for BIF. I would like to try and pick the focal length that I would use most often bare.


    C&C Welcome!

    P.S. The little wood shack is actually crooked in real life.

    From what you have posted here you could have benefited from a longer lens. I would say from experiece it

    Thanks for your input Guys!


    I'm going to move this discussion to a new thread, because I need some help with my decision and I don't want to bog down the Bird thread.

    1D IV, 500mm, ISO 640, F4.0, 1/500 at Firehole in Yellowstone, I wasn't really looking for bird pics, but we don't have many of these around home so I couldn't pass it up.
