Thank you very much.

No, no CPL. Just a tweak or too in PP to cut through the haze! (The main tweak being Nic SilverEfex with luminosity blend. Works wonders with some shots.

The 300 f4 was always one of my favorites for songbirds.

Hmmmm. This place is like a ghost town. I was away on holiday for the past month or so, but it seems nothing has happened since I last looked! Here's a tiger from Ragunan Zoo, near Jakarta. It's an interesting place. It's the third oldest zoo in the world. It's also one of the largest.

In Sept someone asked about the IS, and this was interesting to me also. I just gifted myself a used 300 f4L for Christmas, so I now have a few photos from it. Everyone's IS experience (and sharpness needs) are different; my opinion is yes it's louder than my EF-S 18-200 IS, and I can feel it kick on and off which I can't with the zoom so I'll probably turn it off when I don't need it more than I do on the zoom, and on my 60D crop camera 1/20th of a sec on the zoom at 200mm will give me about the same number of keepers as 1/80th on the EF 300 f4L (probably better of people or pets who will have less motion blur of their own). Below 1/80th, I expect to get about 1/2 to 1/3rd the keeper rate per stop for the next couple of stops (maybe 50% useful shots at 1/40th, 20% at 1/20th, not really useful much below that)

Here is f4.0, 1/15th sec, ISO6400, hand-held, 60D, minimum focus (by which I mean I manually took over the focus and then swayed a bit until I was happy to take the pictures). I took 4 pictures, this was my sharpest, I was pretty well braced using the arm of the sofa under my elbow. This is pretty much SOOC, sharpness set at 2, contrast at -2, with all of the glory of ISO6400 with this camera. I'm not saying it's critically sharp, but this is better than I hoped and focus error is probably worse than camera movement. I am happy with this IS performance, I don't know if someone else would be or not. I took another series of 9 pics of another cat, sitting on the floor cross-legged with no bracing at 1/25th, and of the 9, 4 were usable for smaller web use or better, and one was about this sharp. So bracing probably matters at these speeds.

Full shot
