    Went to the Zoo today, here are some of my faves. All were taken with D300 & Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8.

    Jellyfish taken @ 3200 ISO - D300 rocks!

    Again @ 2200 ISO no noise reduction, it was very dim indoors in the African pavillion. The Sigma showing some nice bokeh :)

    That strange distortion pattern at the top is from the fencing

    Arg, I noticed that flickr is recompressing these jpegs, they were much sharper before I uploaded them :(
     
  2. The D300 does indeed rock.

    I like the last one best but with the top yellow cropped.

    I was wondering how the Sigma 2.8 compares to the Nikon.

  6. great shots!
    i went to the toronto zoo this past June. I love it!!
    The only thing i hated was the fencing on the wolf exhibit. I wanted a wolf shot so bad but found it impossible
