    Bald Eagle; No Honor Among Thieves

    For me it is a great image, the pose of the eagle with the head angle is different, but in a very good way. it looks great here. but yes the "shadow"line in the face is a little step back and i can see some halos around the beak .. but i think the picture is it more than worth to make another try.

    Sell My 200-500 for Sigma 60-600 Sport ...?

    Sell My 200-500 for Sigma 60-600 Sport ...?

    i would nevver change my 200-500VR against an sigma 60-600 sports.. it is not really faster, it is heavier, it is longer, yes it has 100mm more range, but with 6.3 and also 500 is at 6.3. most tests i have seen says at 600mm it is not so crispy ... so the main aspect: the IQ is NOT better.. so...

    Monopod Head For Sports Shooting?

    Yes you are right, but for every solution is one thing necessary: praktice praktice, practice ;) i don`t like ball heads in anyway, so i would prefer on a monopod: a. nothing (direct on the monopod) or a one way solution, like the kirk MPA-2 or the Sirui L-10 or when you are plannning to do...

    Monopod Head For Sports Shooting?

    i have a monostat monopad with a flexible foot, so thats the one thing. the other thing i am using sometimes is a small and light gimbal head on the monopod, like a wimberley but the Weight is only 770 gramm (12lb) and it works fine for me (birds in flight and sometimes horse jumping) it is...

    200-500 meets the D5

    No, not my two glasses, when i compare my pics i can see no remarkable difference, both are simply sharp in the middle, it could be a little advantage in the edges where the primes is better, but that is also not so much. and you`ve said exactly the same at the beginning: perhaps we have...

    ups not a five star combo :) nice catch, too much light ? no, but it is on the edge

    200-500 meets the D5

    Yes of course because of f:4 and 5:6 , but the 500/5.6PF in comparison is not better, it is faster and lighter, but not really better in IQ. And in my personal comparison between the 200-500, the 500/5.6PF and the 500/4 VR, there were no great differences in IQ, if you will do a technical...

    200-500 meets the D5

    great job, i will also never sell my 200-500VR mine is nearby an 500/4VR and so flexible, too. if i had to choose between an 500/5.6PF VR and the 200-500VR i would choose the zoom, because of its price and its flexibility. and because of even the same image quality. just my 2cents...

    200-500 or 200-400 VR I?

    I have made bad experiences with an used 200-400 VR1, really soft at f:4 (soft , no it was simply terrible) until i stepped down to F:8, so that was no option for me. my 200-500 VR ist sharp at F:5.6, even at 500mm . yes it is slower, no question. i would test the 200-400 before, 1 stop more...

    Possible Upgrade from D700 to D850 or D5

    Merry Christmas too.. and yes both the D5 and the D850 are better in all things.. especially for sports and fast subjects but 45MP needs more pc power and the D5 is fat and loud. :sneaky: both have a really stunning af system, what much better than the D700, don`t let me be misunderstood, the...
