A chilly goose:


In the background of the goose shot you can see this heron - I like the flexibility of my Tamron 18-250!

OK, if you were wondering, here is a photo of my back yard.
This is the first shot with my new 17-50mm Tamron at 17mm (thanks to madtownkeith)
My patio is to right behind hedge in picture. A 2 inch rain fall yesterday has raised the water about a foot. Fresh spring bloom of duckweed on top the water. Great Egret and Wood Stork nests can just be made out.

Amazing, amazing, amazing. Very nice everyone. Some noob's posted some really fine work here. Welcome to you all! Keep posting.

I continue to struggle with getting quality stuff out of my A700. Perhaps I'm just not getting it. Here is a shot anyway.

I think your images of herons are brilliant.

May I ask you what 400 mm lens you used here?

I am looking for a good supertele,
and haven't made up my mind yet.

Am thinking of the Sony reflex 500 f8.

If you could advice me on the lens you have used,
that would be great.

Thanks!

David

Hi there,

in case you were talking about my post - thanks!
If not

Either way, I can recommend the Minolta 400/4.5 APO for those kind of shots.
I also have the 500 reflex, while it is convenient because of its weight, it clearly can't get near the 400/4.5 in terms of sharpness, bokeh and contrast.
But it's a good lens and also more affordable.
I paid around 2,500.- for my 400.

regards,
Bernd
