I am impressed with the sharpness you are getting at 600mm, with the Tamron.

Very impressive sharpness. It's amazing how great the detail is at 600mm.

Thanks ! :-). I took that at Corkscrew Swamp. I was really pumped to get that because I wasn’t expecting to see any. It was a lifer for me.

This one is the winner for me, Kev. You caught more than enough sharpness and detail for my eye :)

Thanks Mathew I needed that :-) I still have the odd doubt about switching to m43 but coming to realise that the canon combo is a hard act to follow in anyone's books I reckon.

I love the spoonies! We don't have them around these parts, so it's a treat to look for them on here.

I went back out today to shoot the shorebirds again...waited until later in the day, hoping the water would look less brown...it worked out ok...this Eastern Willet didn't let me get in his way of his favorite feeding patch...this was full frame on the a9, no cropping...
