Seems like activity has slowed down on POTN in recent days, so I'll add one from a trip to northern Maine a week ago.

5 years ago new posts no older than one day would cover a page and a half on the lens forum. Right now the first page goes back 10 days.

Yeah, web forums in general are just not as active over the past few years. I think it’s due to more people using Facebook Groups and Reddit maybe?

Love these forums here, I think this time of year though people are exhausted from planning/shopping/fami​ly stuff/stress/weather..​. hence less posts, but that's okay!!

Not the best, but finally got a shot of this guy. He's timid (bolted when I even walked across the deck, and he was at least a dozen yards away in that tree), but also looks to be the size of a small cat.

I've said it before and .... This lens just blows me away sometimes. First image is 200 yards away and heavily cropped. Then an even greater crop to see he's been fighting as evidenced by the hair not laying anything near smooth on the jaw and neck.

Went for a walk and took my camera. It was nice to get out and shoot for just a bit of fun.

I had the camera set to small JPEG, as I had been shooting some stuff for eBay at work. Damn

That Kookaburra shot is fantastic! I must get more practice at shooting birds in flight.

This Sulphur-crested Cockatoo was obviously not afraid of me. He (or she?) is one of two regular visitors which my wife has named after her parents - this is George (or is it Lois?).

I did not switch, but I own both, if that helps.

Minus: You lose 200mm at the long end.

Pluses:
- Better faster more confident AF
- Better IS
- Better IQ (IMHO both are very good, so this is not the most important difference by a long shot)


If I did not have a fast long prime, and I lived in a world where wildlife avoids humans, and I had to chose, I might chose the SIGMA for it's 600mm.

If I happened to live in the Galapagos or Pondraiders back yard, the 100-400mm would do just fine :)
