With a little pratice you should be able to get some real good hand held shots.

Indeed, it might be heavy but it handles well. You need a 1.4 TC now as it takes that superbly! 420mm @ f5.6!

And for me (since I'm a crop body shooter), that'd be 672mm @ f/5.6!
Speak about a tele lens...
But it'll have to wait a bit until I can afford it lol.:lol:

... and even if you're not this lens is so good that it can perform surgical gender reassignment too given the chance :D

OK, now that really IS what they call 'scalpel sharp' ;)

The 1.4 TC is on my wishlist. I've heard how good it works with this lens. But I think a Sigma 30mm 1.4 will be my next purchase. :-)

Have you put the hood on it yet ? Makes it look huge doesn't it.

You might have noticed, it's almost impossible to put the front lens cap on with the hood on. 2nd the lens cap doesn't fit that tight anyway. I solved this by buying a "hood hat", from B&H. I just slide it on between shots. Works great for me.

Never use the lens cap most of the time, sits in the bag with the hood reversed.

I took those shots with the hood on. The lens looks almost comical because it is so long with the hood on. Good idea on the hood hat. And sitting in the bag with the hood reversed.

could you possibly post pictures of this lens on the camera with both the hood on and without it. I'm possibly ordering it sometime this week and just want to get a sence of how big it actually is. Thanks.

I can fit mine on the camera in the cheap Canon backpack, so long as the hood is reversed. The Canon bag looks a bit smaller than yours.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.
