Had a quick look through the image archive and could not see any for the 600 f4.

This image was taken using my 600mm + 1.4 converter on my 350d as I wanted the extra 1.6 crop. (equal to a total of 1344mm, i think :oops: )

Full image and the 100% crop.

I will try to find some images without the converter to add to the thread later.

Wow. That shot looks fabulous. Would the OP mind if others posted their 600 f/4 images so that this thread may be used for the archives?

Everyone is more than welcome to add photos to the thread, I will try to dig out a few more later.

I will try a moon shot later if the sky is clear.

OK, so the actual focal length is only 840mm but the image produced is equal to a 1344mm lens on a 35mm camera.

Anyone else want to add pics please do.

Here's a couple of shots done with my 600 f4. Oop's, not working! I use mine for small birds on up to large mammals. While not as wieldly as the 500 f4, I don't usually yearn for a shorter focal length lens.
I'd post some image samples but the "Manage Attachments" tab doesn't seem to be working at the moment.
