Also, the shots are sharp but it's on 800? pixel format. If you can't get shots like this with any 100-400 then there is something wrong with your lens, you operating the lens or no proper post processing (as simple as sharpening after resizing).

I think it's a Lilac-breasted Roller.

Cool thanks, I didn't know that!

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I am lucky as I have a very good copy of this lens and it has always impressed me with its sharpness. I have also had a Hoya HD filter on the front since day one. Shame on me as everyone knows the 100-400L cannot be used with filters least you degrade the image quality. I can only imagine how sharp my images would be if I would only remove that darn filter. ;)

If this Hoya HD is a UV filter...there is no point of having one. The sensor of any given dSLR cannot even see UV light at all. UV filters had its merrit back in the days of film. These days its nothing more than marketing - or as I call it: a ripp-off.

Go out and get a Marumi glass filter if you want additional protection for your front element. That's all you really need and at a fraction of the price of a UV filter.

Cheers.

Negative on the UV...since Hoya introduced the Pro 1 Protector filters that is all I have used and now I have changed most of them over to the Hoya HD Protector filters. I have never seen an issue with image quality from using filters even back when I was using UV, Haze, sky or 81A filters for protection but then again I never used cheap filters. I guess to each their own but I will never leave the front element of my lenses unprotected because the minute I do I will probably drop one.

Tonight's waxing gibbous moon:

The moon was pretty far overhead and I must have bumped the push-pull barrel, so I ended up taking the shot at 330mm instead of 400. Oh well...

I am getting better with this lens. I have worked hard to learn to hold this steady and find the settings that best work for me. Still have a ways to go, but I will keep working on it. I love this lens.

This was taken from about 200 yards away and is heavily cropped. What I find amazing is from that far away, the details this lens can pick up. I drive a Beetle Convertible and used the top of my car to rest my camera on while shooting. Worked Great :D
