Merv from Oz..
I have always wanted to join this site just always had difficulty with the log in and register..
Anyway today I finally managed to join up.. A bit about me I started doing photography three years ago and soon after I started I purchased the 500mm mk ii and thus would consider myself a weekend warrior although I only managed to get out once a month.
Today I have sold my 500 for 7700$ AU as having a toddler I wont have as much time for this type of photography, I have purchased myself a 100-400mm mk ii to go with my 1dx mk ii for when I get the itch to shoot some birds.. Anyway here is a contribution from me, some of my fav pics taken over the last couple of years..
Merv, this thread is for the older version of the 500/4. There's a separate thread for the 500/4 II over here:
You should probably post there instead.
