    Who says that you need an expensive telephoto lenses and tripod to go birding?:smile: Here is some handheld shots taken with my crappy Sigma 50 f1.4. Had to close it to f8 and use a flash on a little birdie to get sharp pictures.
    I just sent that lens along with the box, case and everything to Sigma NY for the fourth time. I hope they replace it with a good copy! Good news is that a-hole, who lied to me repeatedly about lens being repaired and fine, is "no longer with a company!" I don't know why and how that happen, but I'm glad!
    Any way, enjoy the pictures:

    Nice shot, very cute. It's not very often you get to get that close to birds.

    Yes, it's not the lens, nor the body which shoots good photographs :smile:
