A bit of a difference handholding this compared to the 200mm! Still, I think with perseverence it should become quite manageable.

Few from this morning's outing to the local duck pond, where I spent more time trying not to fall over on the ice than taking pictures. :lol:

This last pic has been resized in Potatoshop, but no other adjustments have been made whatsoever. Incredibly impressed with the IQ of this lens!

Nice set of images and I agree #3 has a certain appeal, typical gull behaviour :lol:

The 400 will serve you well Karlos. I have one practically welded to my camera. It's already shown how well it works in these pictures. Congratulations on getting the new toy.

I'm curious also.
