Gustav,
What excitement!! Great to see you looking so happy with your new lens, as well as the first photos you have posted. The ones of the hare and the short eared owl are beautiful - #2 and #6 are my favourites.
Could you please add EXIF data?
Looking forward to many, many more.

Great lens, wonderful pictures, from a talented photographer. I gather the A77 and 500 f4 make a nice combo.

Congrats Gustav,
I wouldn't think of anyone else getting this lens before you.
One question though, how do you get so much wildlife in your backyard ?

Can't wait to see your kingfisher pictures with this one.

Enjoy !

Congratulations, Gustav. It is always pleasing when good people have good experiences.


What you did not realize, Gustav, was that all the members of Dyxum contributed funds so that Sony would send you this superb 500 f/4.

In return for this generosity of Dyxum members, you are obliged to produce and present many beautiful photos for us to enjoy.
