Damn.... that's equivalent of 800mm ..... u have the technique! :D And what a brilliant IQ from 450d, it probably looks like a joke on this lens :D

Here's a few more images from the last couple of weekends to add to the archive. Spring is here now and the bushes and trees are all flowering which means perches can look a lot more attractive.

450D, 1/125s, f/6.3, 466mm, ISO 400.

I caught a break in the dismal Easter weekend weather long enough to photograph this local resident. 1Dmk2, 648mm, ISO 400, 1/125s, f/7.1.

QUOTED IMAGE

This is stunning work Andy. I tried on of these lenses at Focus a few years back and i was deeply impressed, although the copy on the stand has a noticable back focus issue. It's a shame taht this lens is so expensive, but then again it is increadibly versatile.

Thanks for the compliments guys, and it's good to see some more samples coming through from the others. Your baby blue-tit is looking particularly fluffy and cute there Scoobs. Low shutter speed for 800mm too - good technique.

Here's a mother and baby from our garden about a month ago.

450D, 1/200s, 572mm, f/7.1, ISO 400.

Looked out the back door tonight & noticed the almost full moon. So I stuck the Kenko 1.4X TC on the sigmonster & used liveview to focus. This shot was taken with the 7D, f/10, 1/20 sec (didn't realise that the shutter speed was so low!), iso 100, Jobu black widow gimbal on a Slik 813 CF ll tripod & remote control. Took a few at larger apertures & faster shutter speeds, but haven't had a chance to PP them yet.
