Haha, thanks :)

It won't be the same though. The main reason I downgraded was the birth of my son. He's over 2 months old now and I have only been out once to shoot, although, this is due at least as much to the weather also. So I don't know how much "damage" I can do with my Tamron :)

Maybe, occasionally, I will pick some of my old Sigma photos, hopefully ones that I haven't posted here, process them and post them :)

you got rid of it because of the baby...you may be wanting it again once he starts moving though...

Thanks, Jake. Only thing I can think is that he was hopping down the branch.

Caught him taking off after a quick snack a few minutes later.

Picked up the 1.4 teleconverter but decided I'm gonna go with the 2x first. Still got out to test this out before it gets exchanged. Please correct me if I'm wrong but I believe I got the id right on these but I'm just getting started with birding. I bought this lens originally for sports but I can see myself chasing birds here and there :)

Nice! Just starting and got a nice shot of a Coopers Hawk! (could be sharp shinned, I still get those confused)

For real. I'd love to get that close to a hawk. Nice shot.

Thanks, the only other birds I've really shot have been eagles but I'm excited to do more birding!

Hey, excellent cooper's hawk shot. I waited a couple years before I shot my first one ;)

Yeah, this lens is great for weddings - if we disregard the size and weight ;)
I never dared to take it to any weddings I shot.

Even though I don't have the lens any more, here are some photos from the fall that I haven't posted.

Some baseball shots, one of the reasons I bought this lens. The first shot had the new tc1401 teleconverter, the rest were without.
